The game, company and publisher can face financial troubles and even failure despite not turning F2P.

Don't get me wrong, i think Anet will fix these problems eventually, and things will improve, but the future of the game is an uncertanty. The game can remove it's box and go full F2P, and, like i said, even if not, that doens't mean much.

Case and point.

 

The point is.....I'm not so much upset that the servers are down.
It happens. I get it.

What bothers me is they happily took money for this for months so that we could have this time because we gave them money and more or less put our faith in them.

If they had made this stuff an added bonus. I'd be totally fine with this. But it's not. It was sold as a package deal.

Sure and I don't disagree with anyone who is not happy at the moment, hell I surely am not. But to expect the launch to be as smooth as a baby backside and start screeming accountability and all that because of a hiccup on opnening morning is where I take pause. You paid good money and are entitled to your feelings, I am just trying to point out that the mass hysteria seems a little misplaced all the while those that are foaming at the mouth to see the game fail are on cloud 9 and it's not really about the games delivery, more about the communities reaction. It's a very sad and gloomy around here.

RIP Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan and Paul Gray.

I don't know how many other fans from other forums flamed GW2 for the past months either. It goes in all directions from everyone. In fact, if you look up at the heading it does say Guld Wars 2-General Discussion and look what is happening.

 

The post still stands whatever way you want to spin it.

I can't believe it but I now really appreciate both the SWTOR and TSW launches/headstarts.  It's not the end of the world...just gives me a new appreciation.

i know a 4 post guy does not have much credit on these forums......but he is kinda right imho...

i payed for head start and i have not been been ably login the game ONCE today.....so my 3 day headstart is hopefully still a 2 day headstart.....or in the worse case NO head start for me (alltough i payed for it upfront didnt i?)

No matter how much defend this....imho this PRE-launch is one of the worse in the last Months for me.......TERA worked as intended from DAY 1 (yeah you heard it right, the korean grinder has no issues what so even when i logged in at launchday), TSW had some login hickups but they where minor. D3 had a fiew days of connection problems but it was possible for ME to log into D3 on the first day tough.

So for me Anet isnt the best launch i have seen.......but i'll rant if i cant login b4 launch tough :p hehe.

For now it's only one free day i wanted to game wasted and not the whole weekend (yet).

cmon Anet, you did stress test it didnt you?? loadbalancing anyone??

Francis is now, officially, the gamer I plan envisioning for every DOOOOOM post I read for the day.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

I think the WoW Devs are pissing in their pants right now. The reason for the rocky launch are the sheer numbers of people trying to connect.

Even your beloved WoW had a ton of downtime at launch.

People are annoying.

Yeah. Same for me. Logged on created character at midnight EST - played until about 2am.  Wanted to hop back in real quick and noticed connection issues.  Funny how coming here was my first idea.  And of course I see the posts.

Humorous to me.  Things happen. Wont deter me from playing as I thoroughly enjoyed what I experienced yesterday.

All of you who are saying "ZOMG! Worst Launch EVAR! FAIL! I will never play this!" all I can say is.... good riddance.

Back to some toons while ANet straightens this out

Let's all cut the nonsense.

ANET sold this. It was what they offered. This happened in Beta. Everyone said "But it's Beta" giving ANET a free pass. Now it's happening in "Head Start" and yet again, I have to hear "But it's not a failed Launch" I don't care how you label it. ANET sold access their game for these events and did not deliver.

In fact, Head Start is ONLY 3 days and now one of them is compromised. After Launch, you can just be patient because then it's Launch, the up and down time happens, But that's not why people gave money to ANET before the release. THIS is why people gave money to ANET prior to release. These 3 days.


Personally, I'm not raging about no access, I can be patient. Eventually, the game will sort itself out, But really, It kinda bothers me that just because deep down inside, some people really really want to have this game succeed, they blind themselves to simple truths.

And this one is that ANET took money for something they FAILED to deliver.

That is still FAIL!

Not to be rude, but people need to use common sense. You only have a certain amount of servers and tens of thousands of people are rushing to login and play. It is impossible for it to work that way! 

You say then, "just add more servers"! Well that sounds awesome, but there are other things involved. Not only the money for the servers but the big fact is that once the population levels out, what happens to the playerbase on each server? What next then? Well you have to then start shutting down and combining servrers. Players get upset, you lose money from the initial server setup and everyone loses. Or, here is the sensible thing, you project what you need in a week or two, and work from there. 

Not to be rude also but if you PAY EXTRA for a service like headstart , the price difference between the 2 is more than enough for them to cover costs of servers and such things, the ammount of "omg GW2"  funny ass defences coming out is cool to read to kill time.....its 2012 comparing this to vanilla WoW launch is stupid for many reasons but as far as i can remember there was no "headstart" for that either, no one paid for 3 days of acess prior to the official "launch".

This is not the only popular MMO to have ever launched...It is however the worst  "headstart" ive ever seen..... Aion at launch time was super popular and the headstart was almost flawless, tera also had large numbers for headstart and had almost no issues im sure there were plenty more in the last 24 months, at the end of the day they had sale projections for a long time and they let everyone who paid for headstart down, defending this fact is silly :D so is basing anythign much of a launch as these days so many games burn out 12 weeks from launch the actual launch seems pretty irrelevant, defenders of the realms put away your keyboards and accept the FACT that they didnt deliver what was paid for, your game still exists its lifespan hasnt changed by a poor launch just Anets rep got a little less shiny

 

Nobody paid "extra" for headstart. You paid the same price as you would should you have bought it after the 28th. That price set in the digital store is the price set for the next few months. It's not any special price for "beta". You could have purchased the box and gotten it for cheaper.

Aion wasn't as "popular" as GW2. And last time I checked, Aion also had it's fair share of launch problems. And Tera had already been released in Asia for a while when it launched in the US. So it wasn't a world wide release like GW2 is. Every MMO has problems at launch. No MMO can anticipate how many players are going to try and get in at launch. And yes, headstart is launch.

+1

+2 the funniest part is all the people who are so "happy" to see GW2 having server issues... like some feel they "won" something. If i had to guess I'd say gw2 has more pre-purchases than swtor with less than half the servers... computers aren't magical things that are inpenetrable. You can tests something 100 times over and over with no issues and still have issues on the 101st time.. just how computers are anyone who works in the computer buisness knows you need patience.

Agreed. Its kind of entertaining how so many people have absolutely no understanding whatsoever how anything in the tech  world works. They just know stuff works, or doesnt work, but have no idea how it works or how many thousands of tiny little things can bring even an internal network to its knees. Its much much worse for things that are open to the public. They think theres some magical "Fix Everything" button that can be pushed rather than millions/billions of lines of coding to sort through, multiple databases, hardware that can crap out at any time through no fault of their own, etc.

Think you guys need to RELAX abit, holy shit it's a game boohoo I can't play ....right now who f**ken cares, play when it's back up, thats what I'm going to do.  The game isn't going anywhere literaly ,complaining left right and center isn't going to get it up faster.

 

 

 

P.S Actualy I do find the F2P in three months funny , because I can't tell you how many times that is brought up in every other game , but somehow somewhere GW2 is untouchable when it comes to the snarky remarks, and you know what , it's a JOKE lighten the hell up LOL it's already F2P imagine if it wasn't ohhh shit.

Lauches in the past 4 years have been decent Aion, Rift, SW:TOR, STO, CO, Darkfall with none of them having to take down the servers for multiple hours thus making this the worst of the bunch so far, because of this people are going to annoyed aren't they?

Calling a headstart not a launch is stupid.

 

It's a launch.

 

And people saying every mmo launches poorly are wrong too. Rift had an awesome launch.

you know what's not helping? any of this. any of the 5000 threads that have started up about the server problems. any of the flame wars raging on this site. none of this is helping. you could go stick bananas in your ears and do a jig and it would help as much. so yeah. get off your high horse, man.

oh also, it is kinda funny. yeah.

In Sweden the game with headstart is 15 euros more than the game without headstart. So I paid 15euros extra for these 3 days.

+2 the funniest part is all the people who are so "happy" to see GW2 having server issues... like some feel they "won" something. If i had to guess I'd say gw2 has more pre-purchases than swtor with less than half the servers... computers aren't magical things that are inpenetrable. You can tests something 100 times over and over with no issues and still have issues on the 101st time.. just how computers are anyone who works in the computer buisness knows you need patience.

Agreed. Its kind of entertaining how so many people have absolutely no understanding whatsoever how anything in the tech  world works. They just know stuff works, or doesnt work, but have no idea how it works or how many thousands of tiny little things can bring even an internal network to its knees. Its much much worse for things that are open to the public. They think theres some magical "Fix Everything" button that can be pushed rather than millions/billions of lines of coding to sort through, multiple databases, hardware that can crap out at any time through no fault of their own, etc.

Exacly , but you can use that argument in other game forums as well, however, I don't see post like that only here. Either way GW2 is a fantastic game , and I played fine most of my night level 11 already. Woot.

It's a combination of Nightingale Armor with the Mod Truebound Deadric Armors

    This is a question of accountability. And this community isn't going to make it better. By not holding ANET accountable, We are making it OK for the next company to come along and take a squat in our Corn Flakes and then try to charge us for the added content.
Case and point.
  The point is.....I'm not so much upset that the servers are down. It happens. I get it. What bothers me is they happily took money for this for months so that we could have this time because we gave them money and more or less put our faith in them. If they had made this stuff an added bonus. I'd be totally fine with this. But it's not. It was sold as a package deal.
Sure and I don't disagree with anyone who is not happy at the moment, hell I surely am not. But to expect the launch to be as smooth as a baby backside and start screeming accountability and all that because of a hiccup on opnening morning is where I take pause. You paid good money and are entitled to your feelings, I am just trying to point out that the mass hysteria seems a little misplaced all the while those that are foaming at the mouth to see the game fail are on cloud 9 and it's not really about the games delivery, more about the communities reaction. It's a very sad and gloomy around here.


Sure....And I agree with everything you said.
I'm not trying to form a lynch mob because I can't log into my game. As I said, I am patient about that. And also, I have all the faith in the world that ANET is not sitting around on a SAT morning popping donut holes and coffee laughing their ARSES off at the MMORPG posts. No, I can imagine the S^&T storm going on over there.

I am trying to make a point that we as the consumer have to stop defending companies where they do not deserve it. And people still need to realize every time some company fails to deliver what they charge money for, and get a free pass, that's a green light for the next guy to come along and repeat it.

I feel that the state of the genre is such that a total and complete failure is needed so it can be reborn anew.
I'm actually hoping this new generation of 8 button MMOs will make that happen.
