    Probably ... huge amount of hype, already issues (delays), over estimated server capabilities. It's definitely going to be bumpy.

    Well, the music on the server select screen is pretty epic.

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

    I love launch day festivities.  The crying and gnashing of teeth puts a little extra something into the holiday spirit. Let me get my snacks and drink.  lets go!

    Ah not sure yet, think the games still waiting for servers to pop.

    New server message : Live at 5:30 ET, so 15 minutes away.

    Some of the best times I've had with buddies is during zero hour for games. 


    Update your games - new patch and servers live. *We'll see for how long.

    There wasn't even a Beta test or trial, just.....U BUY NOW U PLAY WHEN WE SAY! I'm not into survival games, but I hate feeling like I'm missing out on the new cool, but I'm also not stupid enough to throw money at something I've only seen a few screenshots or videos on.

    It's basically a Pirate themed ARK DLC on a huge map - not sure what people are expecting honestly. At core the game is ARK basically.

    This is MMO launch day, we already know it goes like this there's no point on being whiny.

    After the initial peak it's when servers are more capable in the face of load, MMO's usually fall into the same old rabbit old of doing a ton of servers at launch that after the peak get empty and then they need to merge all.

    Atlas could use is of a proper login queue into a freeport the server would only take in what it can handle instead of being overwhelmed with queries.

    No and no.

    Just go punch rocks and trees for a bit and you can start making some things.

    Umm every streamer is spending all their time sitting at server select screen.

    As expected they were not ready for this as vast majority are unable to connect and play.

    So my original question stands - why buy now when you can't play?

    This is currently the top Atlas streamer right now:



    fun... eh?


    Also here are the top steam reviews right now:

    yeah ive been downloading for 3hrs (just over) and only just hit 50% done. Steam servers seam to be getting hammered. As soon as i hit 800kb's to 1mb download it crash's, stops and then takes 5 mins before it starts going again.

    Anyways game has issue's since there are limited spawn points, you cannot build on them but only so many are allowed at each spawn point, one has to wait for peeps to vacate before one can log in

    yup peeps aint happy but hey i hope it fitters out by the time this downloads and then installs (next year most likely) thx steam LOL

    I wonder if the same old excuse will be used.... we didnt know or expect the popularity to exceed this much excuse...

    Seriously what the hell did all these people expect?

    You have a game that is going to be in EA for 2 years and as it stands now is basically an ARK reskin with some shitty menu driven sailing.

    Did anyone with half a clue think they would play today?  

    I am amazed by our capacity for repeating the same mistakes over and over then actually having the gall to write bad reviews and act surprised.

    The holiday sale also likely does not help matters with the steam servers at all.

    Coming in reviews are mixed which is not bad for the first hours of a launch, could be better but, not bad.

  • AsheramAsheram Member EpicPosts: 3,871
    I dont mind buying it now even if I cant get in as it is only $25 til January 2nd and even if it is just ark reskinned I like this skin better. I had hoped the Blackwake devs would have done an open world with their game but they expressly stated that that was not their goal and had no intention to go that route.

    Part of the positive up votes are actually people making fun of the game and have not even played it lol.

    Late next week will be a decent indicator as it will take a few days to iron out I am sure.  Stupid to release on the weekend of Christmas but they seem to be getting enough buys to make it worth it.
