I'm creating this thread to tell everybody who loves to rage about problems for you all to chill the f*ck out.
When GW2 launches very very soon, it will be the launch of an incredibly ambitious project that the amazing team that is Arenanet has unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. With incredibly ambitious projects, minor snags are bound to occur.
These snags include, but are not limited to:
slow loading times
unexpected and emergency maintanence causing downed servers
minor bugs and glitches
relatively imbalanced leveling curve for higher levels (I can't imagine that Anet has a remarkably accurate prediction of just how fast the community is going to level to 80 when the servers finally go live, but it might take a few tweakings to get it balanced)
relatively imbalanced difficulty curve for mid and late level zones
relatively imbalanced WvW situations involving high level characters
and so on...
I have to say that these are the problems that I predict are going to be either a minor nuisance, or a minor issue for at least the first week to a month of the game being out. I have the utmost faith that Arenanet has worked their hardest at resolving these problems through beta's and stress tests but talking realistically, the continuous play of hundreds of thousands if not millions of players is bound to stir up some issues that weren't forseen or that were underestimated.
These things happen, and bitching and complaining about them isn't going to do any good. These problems are only problems if they persist several months after launch, by then it is unnacceptable for these problems to persist. However, on launch day, week, month, these problems are to be expected in small quantities.
So this thread is here before all of the bitching threads start appearing of people having minor issues with the client, disconnects, etc etc. And I'm here to tell all of these people, to chill the f*ck out, and be patient. Arenanet won't let you down, they havn't yet...
