It’s always a bummer when the servers have to go down for lengthy periods of time, but it seems especially torturous when the game still has that shiny new game smell. I can feel myself getting the shakes already! :)
But in this case, I have to give Cryptic/Perfect World credit for being quick to respond to server issues. Once the servers opened yesterday there were lots of server issues as they were slammed – heck there’s still a queue long enough that I had a wait on my Hero account with priority login status this morning. But honestly – what game doesn’t have a frustrating “launch”? Quotes because this is still open beta – while it can be considered to be a soft launch as there are no further character wipes, it is still a beta. I expect these sorts of issues at an actual real launch. But they are on top of things – I was impressed last night with how quickly they were responding to login issues.
And today there’s a maintenance to deal with many of the problems that cropped up. I am particularly pleased to see the stability and login fixes. Hit the jump for the patch details.
