lotro at RoI release had rather inept programming though, i don't think it entirely counts :P

actually, you asked on TS earlier what MMOs had issue-free launches, and i mentioned LotRO (meaning the initial launch of it.) i was actually wrong there, as i couldn't get on during the headstart period because the client on the prepurchase discs wasn't up to the task for me, though the live launch was pretty smooth :P

better that they get it sorted now, though with all the stressing they've done lately i expected it to be sorted. but as long as the live launch is smoother it will be appreciated.

oh, and confirmed on twitter: 72 hour ban for a first offence on naming violations. it's already being implemented during headstart, too :D

The game starts downloading 1kb and then resets to 0 a few times before gives a connection error. I was in char creation before but had to go so I idled out from it and now I'm hoping to make my char before I have to go out again. There's a festival type of thing in my city, 10 bars all have different bands playing at different times and all is free to attend to. :) If I'm still feeling up to it I'll stay on the night. :)

Thing with MMO launches is that no matter how much testing or effort you put in trying to solve problems before they arise, you can never know how the servers will function under an incredible strain and problems arise where you least expect them

And the fun continues with the Launcher not even being able to connect to arena-net at all now

there have been quite a few problems so far with servers not being able to handle the current load on them.

game only let me join guild today, after trying all day yesterday, and hasn't applied my tome of influence to the guild either. so problems still going on :)

Yeah.. I could join the guild only today. Yesterday I was really trying to play and get online but the login had so much issues. If I got to char selection it sometimes decided that was the right time to error on me.

Anguelcho has got a kinvite and he's been able to join in, which is a good thing. :) I was forced(!) to be an officer so count on it to get random ppl in the guild.
