Gotta love Blizz haters, if this game was made by Blizz, there would be a huge outrage about Error 7, queues and overflows.

Arenanet's farts must smell like chanel no5.

I know this was just a silly troll but it helps to know what you're talking about, overflows are an intentional game design to prevent queues. It's actually a really well implemented idea that other MMOs should take note of, you can keep playing the game while waiting to enter the world instances.

I posted a full list of my issues further below in the thread. For something that already had 400k concurrent users on the Saturday headstart, I think it's generally been a fair launch.

Verno, what he said was fair. Servers were down for quite a while Saturday morning, and the overflow joining system was bugged for a lot of people, seriously ruining their experiences.

If this game was by another company, the devs would have been tarred and feathered on here.
