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

My list is almost identical to yours, and you are entirely correct. This is the first MMO I have ever played that just literally didn't launch at launch time. 

It absolutely is.  Fanboys are just blind.

Every single game on that list I was at least logged in with a character made on time.

Semantics don't win arguements. For the vast majority of players, today is launch day and the game is 8 hours late. How you define it doesn't change that fact. Opinions are built around experiences, not words. 

Playing to your 'opinion'. Say today is 'launch' it's not late, till tomorrow. Nowhere on your purchase was a time guaranteed for access. #devilsadvocate


Everybody who didn't pony up for "early access" right now.

All you people saying its okay for them to be late on their OFFICIAL LAUNCH need to get off the meat stick and sober up for a second.

I have been playing since Conq pack early release and even I think this is bad. Could you imagine being outside of a store for a grand opening, and one of the managers peeks their head out and says, "Sorry guys, we are ready, give us a couple more hours, we slept in..," give me a freakin break.

If there are any concerns about it having issues start earlier. If there are still minor issues, launch anyways, and work on your patch while peope are in game and bring it down for 15 minutes to apply it.

You cant just leave people waiting at your door at a time YOU designated.  This ISN'T routine maintenance, this is their game's LAUNCH.

EXACTLY what I've been saying, so many people just don't understand the actual significance of a failed grand opening...I'm just saying in any other industry when the grand opening is this bad it sends a really bad message to any future customers. Notably though...we live in the hardcore fanboy age so people are ready to defend anything...(trump anybody? you tell me hes viable/not retarded I'll tell you to get educated...)

 

also in recent memory I do remember the GW2 launch going EXTREMELY smooth and even getting in a few minutes early..

World of Warcrafts launch involved a 1 week server maintenance, and they still went on to be the most popular MMO of all time. I think we can forgive a couple hours guys...

I have literally no idea what you are talking about. The advertised release time was 6 hours ago. If you buy a car and they deliver one with square wheels, do you say "oh well, it wasn't advertised with guaranteed round wheels" ?

*insert random crying meme*

get over it. read a book. play later. I know you need to "vent," but it accomplishes nothing. If they extended maintenance, that means something wasn't up to par and all their devs are on it trying to fix it. To think that crying about it on the forums is going to do something is like crying about your apartment building being on fire and the fire trucks being in the way of you getting inside.

Woosah brother...

So, launching the game with known problems that arose during early access just to keep the timetable is more important than maintaining it?

 

What is in question is not keeping the time table; it is time management. They could have done the maintenance in the hours prior to the advertised release time.

I'm saying that I appreciate them making an honest effort to launch the game without issues, rather than focusing on an arbitrary timeline. 

Most other games would launch "on time," but you'd be stuck in the login queue for 6 hrs, get into the game, crash,and wait another 8 hrs to log back in.  NO THANKS.

Fix it right, then bring everything back on line. 

We lived without the game our entire lives.  We can all survive another two hours.

Hhhhh.. do you want the game to fail under the stress of the flood? Or just break down all together. They're probably tweaking a lot of small things and making it playable in what is sure to be a storm of ple- I mean.. lower paying players. 

2 hours is not going to kill you.

No where on the purchase page did it give you an access time. They 'advertised' their plans, not guarantees, on the forums. Plans are subject to change. If you're so upset about it go refund it. Community doesn't need people flipping tables over an extended maintenance.

I've said this before

I'll say it again

if you need to delay launch ASK FOR MORE TIME THAN YOU NEED

WHEN YOU FINISH EARLY CUSTOMERS WILL THANK YOU

WHEN YOU ASK FOR TOO LITTLE TIME

AND THEN KEEP ASKING FOR EXTENSIONS

DO YOU REALLY THINK

PEOPLE

WILL

NOT

GET

ANGRY

???????????????????????

PLS

 

AIRPLANING US IS -----ING STUPID THERES LITERALLY NO REASON TO DO IT

JUST -----ING ASK FOR MORE TIME IN THE FIRST -----ING PLACE IS THAT SO HARD TO DO LOL

Little factoid for you.  No matter what they do, "someone" is going to ----- about it.  If they'd have done what you suggest they would have been -----ing over the head-start people even further.  Maintenance windows suck, but they are needed.

TL:DR - Deal with it.

Secondly, that was over 11 years ago.

wow you clearly don't know about new games don't yah?
first of all new games have bugs and alot of twerks to fix before it will be up and running good.
second the whinning of a maintence is completly stupid I mean do you want a game thats broken when it's launch or do you want a update that takes 2 hours longer so you can run/jump and have fun?
thirdly if you can't wait make dinner/ take a shower or what ever you can do so your time moves "faster"
