    So MMORPG is your choice in news.  You see the articles all the time.  I find it interesting that no where on this site has anyone noted the complete and utter clusterfunk the pre-order name grab is.

    So, OP, name reservation thing is a "Major issue" now? Seriously?

    Haters need something to hate.

    Half the reason there are massive server queues during an mmo early start is because a crap-ton of people have worked their schedules around the exact time the game goes live in order to grab their name savers.


    They might not have to do that in Wildstar, but the principle carries over to reservations. What could possibly make you think this wouldn't be a big deal to some people (especially those hoping they'll still be playing this game years down the line where it'll be next to impossible to get anything but random letters)? There's a reason swtor started deleting the names of those accounts that have been inactive a long time.

    This is nothing more than drama for the sake of drama.  Everyone in their right mind KNEW that as soon as the website went live it would be hit with several 100k+ (to even millions) of requests all at once.  The thing lagged and crashed.  Many requests went through and many did not.    This is nothing short of being like a Black Friday sale at your local Walmart where 50+ yokels are fighting over the only 6 DVD players that they have on sale.    (it's similar in that say there's 300 people all at once tossing in the "Legolas" name trying to reserve it all at the same time....system starts elbowing all the request and while one person grabbed the prize, the other 299 got the elbow-to-the-face error)


    So, basically it's drama because of the losers who didn't get what they wanted have to throw a fit and say "nobody should get something that I can't get" with crazy requests of re-dos and throwing the system away so that it's 1st-come-1st-serve at launch only.   This is ludicrous and selfish. 


    I'm sorry, but life isn't fair, the world isn't equal, and not everyone can be named Bob.        However, no reason to blow it completely out of proportion and think that your individual (or minority group) strife is center-of-the-universe important that everyone should be reporting it; it's not.

    You wont get much of an honest review from this site. Its pretty obvious if you have been reading for any length of time.

    AngryJoe puts out a fairly decent review of games (including Wildstar) and is much more entertaining to boot.

    This only reason I hit anymore is player feedback and forums.

    Ive noticed that, and indeed most gaming sites, are a little biased in what news they choose to report.

    When it comes to a specific game, either mostly good news gets reported,or mostly bad, but almost never both. Wildstar's good sides get massive articles but the few times where all the community's complaints are mentioned, the author is trying to debunk and disagree with these complaints. In other words, I feel a side has been chosen and the reporters are not neutral informants.

    Gaming reporters are not a fair and unbiased lot, other websites show the same tendencies to either prop up or shoot down a game, but I almost never meet a reporter who reports both sides of the story equally. This goes triple for MMO games.

    Crashing name reservation isn't a major issue...
