I guess they may be out of physical copy's by now since there are no digital sales. Well, I hope they lift the suspension soon so that peeps can get into the game :)

This whole launch failure and digital sales delay has me reconsidering my interest in this game. One of my favorite things about launch is that most people are pretty much at the same level, same gear, and same skill. If I still can't get into the game this week I will likely just wait on the next launch.

 

I don't care if that makes me a mmo "locust" or not. If I wanted to play a game where everyone is already at max level with me starting a the beginning, I would pick a game that has already been out for a while and fixed most of their problems.

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

I know what you mean.  The longer you get into a game after it's release the less of that launch "magic" you get to feel.   There will probably be an entire new wave of players to start with after the digital sales resume, so unless the higher levels running around ruin the fun for you I think you should be ok.

No sign of any physical copies either atleast from ebgames in Australia which is where I checked.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

I believe it is a matter of them seeing server login's come to a point where they can handle more people.I do not believe they have or will add any more servers,they are simply doing what every developer does by undercutting need then waiting for things to slow down.

There was obviously a ridiculous mad rush,people were playing very long hours and noted by the many who already have level 50 players and crying for more to do.I played 3 Beta weekends which is around 8-9 days or so and i played a lot and i only got a couple players to around level 25 and 20.

It means players are still playing way too much,so the server load is probably near maxed.only a guess as to when it might slow down,maybe another 2 weeks is possible.

The next patch is probably more code to help reroute players so that each server is equally used allowing for maximum server use.So it is possible if things look better for each server after this next patch,maybe 2-3 days after that.

For my wife and I its what ever comes first the Terraria patch or FF14 digital download. If Terraria is first we will wait on FF14 until we get tried of all the new content coming to Terraria.

At this point it is just a waiting game. I just do not want it to become three weeks or a full month. Playing catch up sucks.

 

Oh well, GTA5 is next week.

I was really looking forward to playing this game and the fact that digital downloads were down made me want to play it even more :p Now I'm not so sure. I figured the reason they stopped it was due to server issues which makes perfect sense but its been about 2 weeks so either they are trying to keep the hype going or they aren't sure they can handle the influx of players that they foresee gaining once digitals are back. I'll probably hold off for another week or so once digitals are back to see if more issues arise and i'm stuck with a game that's unplayable for what ever the reason.

IMO this has got to be the worst launch I've seen. I remember issues with Vanguard and AOC, but this is ridiculous as far as suspending digital sales and it is not in any store with 200 miles of the Los Angeles area. I wanted to give it a go, but they are probably going to loose me now to GTA V and by the time I get through that, other games on the next gen consoles or PC will be out and Ill be patiently waiting for ESO in the Spring. It really does feel like they sold an extended open beta that isn't totally open for everyone.

This is odd to me.. First, people freak out because they didn't do enough research to know how many players there would be, and the problems insured. Now, people are pissed cause they implemented fixes and want to make sure the current issues are solved before introducing potentially more issues... I guess SE Just can't win with some folks...

Apples and oranges dude.

 

One group pre-purchased the game and was upset that they could not access what they paid for.

 

The other group is people who did not preorder, but are now interested in playing the game. But since they are not able to buy now interest in the game dwindling.

 

So no SE can't win when they can't even make one of these groups happy. But that is not the customer's fault. That fault lies squarely on SE's shoulders.

 Im sorry, I don't see how SE could have predicted accurately how many people were going to be interested.

We all have the benefit of hindsight now..however if one month ago you were asked "How many people will play a remade game that once failed so miserably if made grown men cry?" would you honestly say "well they need at least 75 servers since at least 53 servers will be packed to the brim for early access"

I don't think so.  They might have known the game was good, they might have know how many people would have played if this was the original launch.  The fact that the old game failed and pissed a lot of fans off, that changed everything.  Perhaps they thought launch would have been weak but then grown as word spread...that's what I would have guessed would happen.

53 server packed...I don't think anyone saw that coming a week before EA.

Im just worried about how many people out there that don't have the game want to buy it.  We could guess all day but I don't think anyone knows for sure.  So how many servers should the bring up in order to resume sales?  Again not going to be easy to predict unless they do pre-orders on a live game and then allow people who buy them to play a week or two later when they can adjust capacity....and I don't think people would like that.

Businesses make sales predictions ALL OF THE TIME. I fail to see why SE would not do the same. Besides they should have been faster on their feet to address the problems. Here we are, two weeks since launch and three weeks since EA, and still sales are suspended. If that is not a business failure I don't know what is.

 

I'm still trying to grasp why so many people on this website want to continue to excuse the inexcusable from game devs. Only in a gaming world is it ok to sell a broken, unfinished product while claiming it is not. Only in the gaming world is it ok to not project sales. Only in the gaming world is it ok fail to provide service already paid for in advance. The excuse of, "well that's just the way it is", is growing very old and tiresome. I've become jaded and will not accept this anymore. SE will not be getting my money and the upcoming AAA launches better do much better if they want anything from me.

+1 you captured  my feeling and probably the feeling of so many from your last couple of posts. Im a big MMOer, I'm familiar with what to expect at Launch as far as bugs, long server queues, delayed support, email issues, missing features, etc, but this game is entering uncharted territory and some of these defenses are from folks who clearly don't understand business. In addition, they are trying to rewin the favor of so many disappointed in the first launch. One bad first impression is bad enough. Two bad first impressions is just inexcusable.

i really dont know how you can call it a failure. Sales of stopped because they were expecting as many people as they did. So as far as predictions go they went way over what was expected to sale. So i would call it a success. Sucks to be you people who didnt pre order. Live with your choice and wait for sales to resume. Another maintenance is happening today to increase server performance . So just hang in there im sure they will resume soon

Thats a great idea. No store within all of Los Angeles for any retailer shows in stock within 100 miles, so I'm gonna get in my car tomorrow and drive all over the state because one of them is bound to have an inventory discrepancy lol.

Thats a great idea. No store within all of Los Angeles for any retailer shows in stock within 100 miles, so I'm gonna get in my car tomorrow and drive all over the state because one of them is bound to have an inventory discrepancy lol.

Did you check you LOCAL stores? 'None" in stock around me, but I took a chance drove to my Walmart, and it paid off. I mean you can be a smart ass about it thats fine.  I'll be enjoying the game while your still waiting.
