New user tolerance: We all know that new posters can sometimes take a while to fit in. Please remember that you were once a newbie yourself, and take the time to show them the ropes rather than blasting them for not knowing how things work. If they ask for help, show them the way. If they deliberatly seek to provoke trouble, deal with it accordingly.
That being said, the official ZAM forum rules can be found here
as well as a permanent link at the bottom of any ZAM network page. I encourage you to really
read the rules if you continue to post on this network.
That being said,
Yes, you are right. There have been plenty of issues with the game's launch. The persistence of 1017 and 90k mass boots are a severe pain the ***** and one that has started to afflict me today. I'm not a big fan of them. WoW had issues on launch but they were resolved rather quickly (within a month and a half vanilla was reasonably playable without quest crashing, which was my biggest gripe personally and the reason I didn't stay with the game). EVE Online had a lot of launch bugs, as did FFXI and, yes, even RIFT had launch issues despite it being the cleanest launch any MMO has ever seen.
They could have planned for population better. I agree with that. I'm not sure how they would have, but that's not up to me. These issues will continue to afflict players, including myself, until the new server hardware goes live this upcoming week. Unfortunately, until then, I doubt I'll be able to log in. I can't even get in on the JP server I rolled a character onto. That's disappointing as hell.
I'll sit. I'll wait. They're giving us free time anyway. I know a few of my friends have uninstalled and some are waiting a month while they sort things out. Server transfers will be coming so I can roll my main away from Valefor and onto Ultros or Lumia.
Nevertheless I can't disagree with you. I'm sympathetic to the communities disdain for these threads -- We all want to see the game succeed. Even you do, which is why you cared enough to post about it.
