On WAR's Rough Euro Beta Launch

Mark Jacobs' Blog has thoughts from the Mythic boss about the difficulties launching the open beta testing of Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning in Europe (story), which is now underway. His initial post is mostly to decry the outcry over troubles with a beta, though this may not be completely cognizant of how beta access was dangled as a benefit of preordering. The post was subsequently updated clarifying that GOA is not without blame, saying that the game's European manager "messed up" and that it "was an ugly day," and clarifying that he does not deny the right of players to be angry. He also comments on statements by GOA's IainC: "I’ll simply say this, I do not agree with what he said, I do not support what he said and his comments were, in my opinion, way out of line." We're not sure what comments he's referencing, there's a Letter from IainC on the Warhammer Forums, but this does not seem at all inflammatory. Moving forward, Videogaming247 has received a statement from GOA saying "These issues will of course be completely fixed for the launch."
