So against my better judgement i decided i would go ahead, and purchase the game - Not because i enjoyed it in Beta. Quite the opposite. I really didn't like it (Heres my review on it : http://goo.gl/pFDDZS)-- However, perhaps by dumb luck, or brilliant timing - The MMO markets are dull, and dry at the moment. So i was willing to part with the 30 bucks to amuse myself for a week or 2. --
However, since their luanch appears to be going terribly - they actually STOPPED saling the GAME!!!
Thats right, you can't even buy it right now if you wanted too --- I've played every major AAA, and indie MMO you can imagine. --- This is THE first time i've seen this. -- After how many months of open beta tests, and stress tests? They had to resort to a sales freeze to get a handle on the situation? I've never seen that before, and i've seen some bad launchs.
That being said -- What gives? THIS is a constant issue with MMOS - You would think any moron with a brain could realize that launchs are stress heavy, and to provide a superfluous amount of server, and hardware capabilities to ENSURE a smooth run (Barring any unforeseen software issues - none stress related) --- How do we as consumers keep accept that? "It's okay, everyone has a bad launch" --- Yeah, that might have worked in 2005, or 2006 --- Yet, it's 2013, and we have seen hordes of large titles fail at launch due to similar issues, and this is the REBOOT of the series, and they still failed to be prepared? REALLY!?
Well, my moment of impluse buy has passed, i'll get find an old game to play til Everquest Next, or BLESS. Sorry if you don't agree, refer to the next line :
