Launching a game 5 hours late looks really bad for a company.

Sorry.  I would defend them... the actual impact of the "screw ups" has been minimal and I was on the affected channel.  I have been playing non stop since Sunday.  The game is fricking amazing.

The game has nothing to do with Daum, it's Pearl Abyss...

I've got conq pack so this really doesn't affect me a whole lot. I've played more hours than Id like to admit already. 

That said the smart thing to do would have been take the servers down last night and latched before hand. 

If your launch date has been shown as 8 am UTC it should be up at 8 am.

On the plus side we'll probably get GM apology buff from this

And BDO is not even new. This game launched in 2014. I could forgive them if this would be legitimate beta and first launch but jeez to ----- up this now? Their incompetence started to scare me.

That's a total BS argument. You go try translating an entire game's worth of code from one language to another that have completely different roots and see how many mistakes get made on the first try.

It's only a couple of hours for one day, get over yourself. You must have something better to do then cry on the forums.

I simply have the lowest standards for launches, experience has taught me not to stress about it. Also the people that would be "refunding" are the toddlers that started screaming the second they didn't get their own way and would be back in a week anyways. 

truth, I slightly understood it when people mistakenly thought they were getting headstart access, but if you want a refund right now you're literally an idiot (but for my reference I was mostly referring to how they handled that fiasco earlier)

Oh my bad. Thank you for correcting it.

Yes, some of you should go off and play Hello Kitty Island Adventure.

See this everyone? This is what we call MISSING THE POINT ENTIRELY.

Let us look at the title of this thread,

"Launching a game 4 hours late looks really bad for a company"

The point is that they need to handle an Official Launch, not my words, but theirs, properly.

This has NOTHING to do with gametime. 

See this everyone? This is what we call BEING A FORUM ASSHOLE.

Agreed. This is a terrible start for an unknown company who has still to prove itself. Question is why does these great Asian MMOs end up with companies like Trion and Daum? Why not a reputable MMO company?

Haha look at this, aint it hilarious.

I'll give you a big hint, daum publishes this in KR too. lol.

So.. why didn't they shut down the server 8 hours prior to the official, advertised launch time? 

probaly becouse there was no need for that just yet?

 

theres plent of stuff you can tweak and do before you shut it down you know?

and remember people who work at pearl abyss are still just people, not organised work robots

Worst company ever. Put a 8 hours maintenance on release day. WOW.. And probably there will be a patch too after that scandal. The funny part is i paid them to play their games...

Because it's irresponsible to make sure everything works right before releasing a patch.

/sarcasm

thats some bullshit if i've ever heard any

are you seriously trying to -----ing tell me right now

that they REWROTE the code from another computer language? hahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

As one working adult to another, this is hardly something to be ticked about. Watch a movie like you would've done if this game WEREN'T coming out today. Fill your time with something you enjoy instead of being bothered by something we all knew was going to happen anyways.Netflix and league + this forum are keeping me highly entertained.

NO! I refuse to NETFLIX and League...And who does that anyway?! This was the only thing saving my life!!!! I was gonna jump off a roof yesterday but I said NOPE, not today satan! BDO is going to be there in the morning, I can't let it down...but look, LOOK AT ME....No one cares about letting me down! No cares about what I NEED!

Look at the top.
Planned Roadmap.

Not even to mention under law unforseen difficulties can and do take place.

Yes it sucks things are delayed.

It happens. Will continue to happen. And other then -----ing like children there is NOTHING that you or anyone else has any legal right to do about it.

Don't tell me what my rights are! You don't know what I have the right to do! You're not the constitution! 

 

 

*Disclaimer* I'm bored and just felt like being hysterically nonsensical...It's what I'm doing while waiting to get in game...tah

You can't even launch the game on time, how can we expect you to maintain it well?

Most MMO companies are pretty shit, can't really think of one off the top of my head that stands out as particularly exceptional. At least none that aren't also the producers/developers of their own games.

Glad you are staying on topic. Attacking someone personally signifies you have nothing to contribute to the debate, which is fine, but don't pretend to.

Actually, the fact that we have been playing it full on for a few days now and they have been monitoring the servers since the "snafu" tells me they are very on it and ready to make it better. Relax...you'll get your chance and we'll all be better for it knowing the game is playing nice.

 This has to be these people's first MMO. If the biggest hiccup we get today is a 2 hour delay, I'm as happy as can be.
