Yeah, good idea. 2am here too. Better to hold off on the red bull and hot pockets til after you're in and stable. BUT, who said there's anything wrong with a brew or three before to celebrate? =P

SWG Publish 4 Jedi:Flurry: TKM unlock

Aion's was perfect, SW:TOR had a perfect, but straggered stupid launch, Guild Wars 2 was perfect.

SWTOR's launch wasn't perfect. The guild I was in at the time I had like 90 people in teamspeak and for the first 2 hours only about 10 were able to get onto the server, and not because it was full.

But I also expect that a lot of people will be disappointed because their preferred server will be full. I wished SE would announce free server transfers for the first two weeks or so. That would kill most of the tension. At least for me.

Wait, the open beta wasn't everybody? I thought everyone even remotely interested got into the OB

There's always gonna be people who said "Well I'd rather wait til launch/EA", people who couldn't make the OB because of work/school/life in general, and not to mention the game has fucking caught fire man. More and more people every day I see excited about it. the OB was crowded as fuck on midgard, which is cool. I like my server crowded.

my only concern is they may have underestimated themselves.  I don't think they really expected as many players / pre orders as they have gotten so they are scrambling to adjust

not really

I was there, tell me what went wrong with Guild Wars 2?

I thought it was an extremely smooth launch.  The main issue that plagued the game for a while was the trading post.  They had to significantly upgrade their servers for the TP database before they could open it up to everyone simultaneously.  But man, the first day it came up for good is an MMO memory I'll always carry with me.  I must have crafted for 14 hours straight.

It's a bitch at launch for sure, but it's a temporary problem and far better than the alternative.

I find it interesting how video games have the lowest success rate and the highest totals raised in all Kickstarter projects.

Wanted to throw out a reminder on this thread : There is a patch, it's not huge (mine is finishing up and its only taken about 30 minutes) but it could still delay ya from getting on.

Playing the FFXIV 2.0 Demo

8/24/13 1:05:50 AM#52
Originally posted by wrightstuf

 Even being excited for launch, i cant help but worry about how it will go. Quite a few AAA launches go quite smoothly, but some are a disaster. It seemed like a staggered time to enter, depending on the date of your pre order would help, but not always, heh...GW2 comes to mind.

 Oh well, i'll still be hitting the "play" button at 2am and hoping for the best!

You better they stated arlier this week that they were going to have server lockouts and queues

Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.

That made me laugh.

 

I just hope they allow character creation on all the servers so friends can actually play with one another.

I'm sure they will eventually.  But, this first week or so I don't see it happening.  However friends can always join their friends on the less populated servers instead of expecting all their friends to get on the over populated ones.

It's absolutely crazy, the floodgates at launch of any MMO. This game doesn't have an exceptions, it's going to be maddening just like you are saying.

People want to play with their friends. It's a legitimate complaint.

Can't be any worse than WoW's launch.

The two shouldn't, and can't really be compared.

 

WoW was an unexpected success, selling millions in a short time back when MMO's didn't even sell 1 million copies. Blizzard could not have foresaw how much of a success WoW was going to be. They didn't know the servers would be overloaded. 

 

Whereas with games like FFXIV, GW2, SWTOR etc these are expected to sell at least 1 million as like a starting point. It's common for a AAA title to sell that many, and expected. Nowadays MMO developers have a very close estimate of how many people will be playing on day one, and should test their servers to cater to these numbers. That's what annoys me about bad launches.

 

On topic though; I really do think FFXIV will have a smooth launch, mainly because Square Enix do not want problems with the game this time around, having a bad launch would be one of the worst things they could do. I have faith in them after playing beta with no bug experiences, no lag and no other problems really.
