I am not talking about the general server issues, with the main servers down for maintenance on a regular basis. I've played a few MMO's and I expect this on a new one. That will settle down soon enough, and you have to be prepared to ride out the first few weeks with sort of game.

What I am talking about an individual technical issue that prevented me from getting past the launch screen, even when the game… Read more
