Strongly reminded of WoW launch here.

Let's see if they manage to learn from the mistakes of those who came before them and get this patched up before march of next year.  :nyoro-n:

Realistically if you blow your budget on trying to build the capacity to handle every player at launch, you're going to find yourself with a massive surplus of power that needs to be maintained once the greater percentage of the playerbase trickles off.

IOW, launch on a decently managed MMO is always going to be like this.  That you apparently consider it worth the wait is good news.

Gobsnick the Squig Herder and Buffon the Chosen on both Averheim and Avelorne; Thoric the Ironbreaker and Teslason the Engineer on Skull Throne.

I suggest Skull Throne be our server for order alts, since my filthy order-playing friends are on there.

Thankfully, despite a couple random crash-to-desktop-v.-cleanly bugs, War launch is way more stable than WoW's was.

Which is good, because my strategy for getting around the terrible launcher is to just stay logged in.

They're going to launch with a shit load of servers. They've got approximately one million pre-orders of the game, and are shipping 1.5 million units. I'm sure once Wrath of the Lich King launches in November there will be a large migration of PVE fags, but until then we'll just have to suffer a bit.

So I heard that everybody in LB is already high level or some shit?

I thought the game started today.

I think Sieg is probably level 20 by now, and I'm level 14, which was second place when I went to sleep. I'd hardly call that high level, though Sieg's leveling is insane.

You can hit R10 in a day almost effortlessly.  It's around there (9, 10, 11) that the curve seems to rise.  The really great thing is the bolstering: though top of the tier ranks will fairly well menace you, with many classes you can pvp at any level and do not toobadly for yourself.  So you can play with LB of all ranks (until they outlevel the tiers I guess?)!

Yeah, the only hard limit is the tiers. Those are pretty lenient though. You have to be level 12 to have leveled out of Tier 1, and the same is true in the later tiers until 40.

It should be noted that you, in particular, would be an awful judge of this.

Within a few minutes of Niku getting his power back, he should be halfway through the end-game content.

Anyone else having crashing problems? Today twice so far, once after 15 minutes (dumped me on my desktop) and once after maybe an hour (but took my monitor with it, so I had to restart.)

No, it really is reasonable.  I got 8 yesterday after a full 8.5 hours at work, never having played in the zone past the first three quests, having the worst RvR Scenario in the entire game, and still getting to bed around midnight.

So instead of a reasonable grace period, Mythic decided to have a one day period after launch before you need your CD Key. So I'm out of the game until my Collector's Edition comes in the mail, which is looking like a couple days.

That's not exactly pertinent. I was playing alone, and spending most of my time testing and making bug reports. Now I'm falling behind the whole guild while I wait for a god damn package.

It's funny that you say that, just days after assuring me that it doesn't really matter what level I'm on or how often I play.

Clearly we all must level simultaneously, or the game dies.

That's what I was afraid of, and why I didn't dive in.  Not fun to be the straggler trying to catch up as the awesome guys ride on living discs that eat hope and they fire off various awesome things that make people die.

Meanwhile you're poking angry bunnies with a stick until they drop a coin for you.

It's not really about falling behind in levels specifically. I mean that I've been playing closely with a group of people so far, and I don't want to fall out of that group.

Straggling behind is no problem in the long run at all. We'll all be 40 and kicking about soon enough I'm sure, but my leveling experience was more fun for leveling with a group of people that I will now very likely fall irrevocably behind.
