Being mad about it is wasted energy, especially when we all knew this was inevitably what was going to happen.

I just can't get on board with it being ok because this stuff happens. It's not unreasonable to expect something better than this.

It's not uncommon for MMO's to have lag, queues, whatever on launch day (which is what this basically is, even if a single player MMO). Glitches are one thing, complete stonewalling by the login server and a three hour shutdown in the middle of the day... people are still at work, kids at school, and some haven't even had a chance to get their copy yet. If it can't handle 2am and it can't handle 12pm, it ain't going to be up later either.

They've talked in interviews about this being the direction that gaming is going, and today is really a pretty good example of why it shouldn't. I'm not really angry about it, just...disgusted, I guess.
