Wild Star FAIL

Sadly, the nay sayers were correct.

Here is my review:

"No Realms Available At This Time"

NICE LAUNCH!

    They're just trying to get the feel of a new MMO launch right!

    Gotta have a few server problems on that first day, otherwise it's not authentic!  B)

    My SWTOR referral link for those wanting to give the game a try. (Newbies get a welcome package while returning players get a few account upgrades to help with their preferred status.)

    Anyone expecting smooth servers on the (re)launch of a game is hopelessly naive.  You'd think players would have learnt this metaphorical aeons ago.

    Can not spell Wildstar even though the name is on the main page here, FAIL. Too easy.....

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    So yes they had to restart megaservers several times since launch and the cash shop went offline for both US and EU.

    now they are offline again in emergency maintenance which was extended from originally planned 35min

    So while they are experiencing load related issues, its hardly a FAIL, its pretty much normal.

    relax, it will all be sorted out in time.

    watch cat videos on YouTube for an hour or 2 :)

    also might want to keep an eye on their twitter feed as all emergency maintenance notices are posted there.

    Also good for when you need your 2 year old and 10 month old to chill out.

    Why people get upset at launches makes me laugh. Are we new to this? Almost 20 years of MMOing and this is how most go. Dont like it, get out of the kitchen.

    peoples love free stuff , but they have no idea none is free for real

    only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

  • hfztthfztt Member RarePosts: 1,341
    Well, they never had that kind of succes as a p2p title, so they really did not have a chance to see how the servers would hold up under pressure.

    And people wonder why games go f2p...
  • VorthanionVorthanion Member RarePosts: 2,641
    F2P games always have an initial rush.  Keeping them is another matter that many of them never succeed in doing.

    Yep.

    Well, to be honest is it a relaunch and those are far easier. Sure, they have changed some things but the server software should be well tested by now.

    This is a bit clumsy, no disaster but they can't really afford mistakes right now. They need to get everything up and running as intended ASAP.
  • NanfoodleNanfoodle Member EpicPosts: 7,747
    Hehe, daytime play and the Q is 600 deep, 20 min wait time. Prime time is not gonna look so good. They need a paying customer Q. I have dropped money on this game and F2P players should be 2nd class gamers. Guess I will wait for the crazy to die down first.

    Except it is NOT a release if servers are not up,login goes to a page that says not available,players cannot get in,it is ....umm i would say a fail.

    You know how many games i have not got into on my first try.....ummmm maybe 2 in my entire life.Rift obviously since Trion get's it wrong every time and the other i don't even remember.I played FFXI for over 13 years,never once could i not login well except for the earthquake but that is not the developer's fault.I got in that game the very first day and have never had any issues in 13 years.

    Now a days seems people want to make excuses for really bad developer's and publishers who can't get their act together.You have TESTING phases ,that is what they are for,you don't use launch day as another testing phase lol.

    ALL of these devs need to get their act together,run testing and treat is as testing and not as some marketing gimmick.

    Here you go,here is this brilliant teams launch.BTW this page has been like this since yesterday and today.

    Get a grip. New server structure and a relauch. You never know how things will work out when you do stuff like this till it hits live. Give them a few hours to work this out lol



  • VelocinoxVelocinox Member UncommonPosts: 1,010
    They're supposed to buy a brand new server farm so that launch is smooth and they can swallow the loss when you get bored of them again?

    Entitlement.

    'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.


    When your head is stuck in the sand, your ass becomes the only recognizable part of you.


    No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than one which you've become familiar.

    You played FFXI for 13 years but what you failed to realize is that the game had around 30 servers, not 4 (I think for WS). Also the MMO population is a lot bigger now than it was back when FFXI first launched. I doubt more than 50-100k people played XI at its very launch, but I wouldn't doubt 100k+ people trying to get into wildstar when the servers went up.

    Also, don't act like FFXI servers were great, do you not remember the "maintenance extended" messages after EVERY maint. As a FFXI player I'm surprised you don't have more patience.
