People are impatient and whine entirely too much that or its their first mmo and they've never had a launch or early release before who knows ROFL. I bought 2 copies one for myself and my brother I'll probably sub 180 days right off the bat, I wanted CE BUT... it was sold out months ago sadly. I like the game, it has potential OMFG IT HAS BUGS... its a launch what do people expect.
Testing with a group of a couple thousand beta testers is one thing, opening the flood gates to everyone during open beta or everyone who preordered say 10s of thousands maybe 100,000's + is entirely different. New problems arise when you scale the test size up, and they learn to address them as they appear, they're not omniscient they can only fix a problem when they realize there is one in the first place.
Hell myself this is the first time during closed beta, open and early release this morning that I've even experienced the error 90,000 or 10,102 codes myself so some people out there never even experience the error in the first place. And now I'm certain some unfortunate *******'s out there probably got all the errors, and could never connect such is life.
And its not like they're sitting on their hands, Yoshi's released statements about problems they've addressed and problems currently happening. And emergency maintenance's how many so far 3-4, it means they're aware of the problems and trying to fix them. If they didn't care they'd just sit there and do nothing and you couldn't log in at all.
So breath relax it'll be ok, go stretch, talk a walk, listen to your favorite music, go eat something. Maybe even go outside, I know its scary out there kinda bright ya might want some sunglasses I know I wear mine all the time out there everyday lol.
Instead of complaining maybe make a list of things you like about the game, or things they could improve. Last night omfg the lightning during the storms in game was pretty nice. Weather effects +++
I thought guildleves was pretty cool way to level crafting profs/gathering profession you don't particularly care to spend hours cranking out logs or such or to get you through a rough patch. Aethernet traveling sure the hell beats walking I love it, can't wait till I get a mount. Me being an altoholic this is a big one on my list BEING ABLE TO PLAY EVERY CLASS AND LEVEL EVERY CRAFTING/GATHERING PROFESSION on the fly by switching weapons I think this is amazing.
take the good with the bad and just be patient, I'm sure this game will be better then the first. Hell I didn't hear about the first one till it was already dead and as goofy as the commercial was at least it played on syfy lol.
