As the title states, this is not launch.
This is only the headstart. While it's horrible now, at least 'launch' will be smooth.
Obvious counter is "Most people likely prepurchased".
To this I say; True. However, it is still considered a headstart.
We did have 7 hours of decent game time until it went down.
I find it all a tad strange though, considering how many hit the beta test weekends, and am curious as to what happened.
MMO's played: Ragnarok Online (For years), WoW (for a few weeks only), Guild Wars, Lineage 2, Eve, Allods, Shattered Galaxy, 9 Dragons, City of Heroes, City of Villains, Star Trek Online (Got someone ELSE to pay for it), Champions Online (Someone else paid), Dofus, Dragonica, LOTRO, DDO and more... A LOT more. I've played good AND bad. The bad didn't last long. :P
