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

Remember Blade & Soul? People bought preorder packs of 130 EUR and the server crashed like 8 times the launch day. Better wait now and get it done for good than a continous crashing server.

I remember playing that game in Korea 5 years before NA release.... dear lord you think its bad on its second coming, you shouldve seen the first coming!

So many new people to the MMO genra they expect a smooth launch and smoother Maintenance... once the game is opened I expect it to crash and be down for another hour or two.

 

 

Welcome to MMOS!

Pretty much this, I expected cashes, lags, dcs etc. but had only some small rubber banding that ended the moment it started, so far this the smoothest release I have participated in.

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

The panic is real.

I've participated in probably 15 mmo launches.

This is the first to just outright start late.

I had to laugh at this one.....sure ya did...This is the first one ever to be late...riiiiight.

No, srsly. Beside that disappointment some of us had on 28th, 01.03 and 02.03, you write you are delaying the launch to 12:00 for maintainance on 03.03. Then 14:00. Then 16:00.
Is it me or there's some incompetence here?

In any case this whole experience has been very disappointing. All the people who have already played in the beta, played in the headstart etc. Please stop saying how fine it is, you haven't been -----ed as much as the rest of us over the last week. We haven't been able to try the game yet and we're really hyped to try it, but when you get hit by bad news and delays every time you hype yourself up to play you're going to end up really disappointed. See the situation from others point of you as well, not just your own.

Just because you took off from work does not make it prime-time, at least try to stay realistic.

If this was during the same time in the US, I dread to think would the backlash would have been like from that playerbase.

Its not you, because a competent way to handle this would have been to ask for MORE time than necessary in the FIRST PLACE, that way NOBODY GETS MAD because NOBODY EXPECTED IT TO BE READY at that time. This is incompetence. All of us have been in school before, when you are late on assignment and ask for extension teacher might say ok sure. Then you ask again, she will say why, you will say i shit my pants or some bullshit, she will say okay. oops one more time you forgot the assignment on time, ask teacher for extension she will say why, you will say my grandma died. do you think your teacher is going to believe you again when you ----- up "one more time"?

no.

I just wonder if this is a Maintenance, Pre-Maintenance, Non-Pre-Maintenance, Extended-Maintenance, Non-Extended-Maintenance,, Post-Maintenance, Non-Post-Maintenance, Pre-Non-Post-Extended-Maintenance. o.O

But for real, I rather it take longer than a roll back like other mmo launches I have been in. :P

~need to also mention this~

What they tried with us today is the airline strategy, if you've ever seen 30 rock you remember that episode with Liz on the airplane? They keep saying "30 more minutes passengers and we'll be going"
FOR HOURS. eventually all the passengers just went -----ing insane if i remember correctly and rioted so it is *HUMAN NATURE* to get pissed after a certain point, and we're all gonna have different ticking points.

if this happened to you on a plane, would you accept it? just saying...they need to have had a better approach at the very very very very least.

Go get a job. Then you can buy more stuff in the cash shop. Go for a walk. Go swing at the park. there are many other things you can be doing aside from spewing negativity about something beyond your control. Toxic communities ruin good games. you sir are toxic to the community..... go back to AA

Just heard this, the geek who runs the servers has been told how many copies they have sold and now he will not come out of the stationery cupboard.

This is untrue, That was early access. Today is the official launch date. But it does not really matter.

I would venture to guess that people who pre-ordered are not complaining as much because we know whats waiting for us when it does come up-fun and more fun.

I didnt want to play on early release i learned my lesson from other games with that as nothing ever goes how a person hopes, but i thought i would wait till today to play, but i already knew maintenance would be happening today and i dont mind that its going to be later than expected to play, why? because id rather them get as much fixed as possible for it to run smoothly than get it done as fast as possible and cut a few corners. So yer its going to be late grab a coffee and chill with something else, go out enjoy yourself and later play bdo till your hearts content. Have fun enjoy your day
