How Guild Wars 2 showed me there is civility on the internet

MMGN.com writes: Launch day, perhaps the most liberating and stressful day for any game developer. It doesn't matter if you have been working on a title in a team of three for six months, or a major release for 2000 days in a team of hundreds, launch day has been the ultimate goal from day one. Your creation is out in the hands of the world, for better of for worse, and the opinions of gamers everywhere are about to hit every forum, social network, blog and gaming community out there. That's a lot of pressure, and if you game suffers launch day issues, it's never going to be pretty.

The story is too old to be commented.

I couldn't believe almost all of the US servers were full on the first of the three-day headstart. Looks like GW2 could help re-shape a stale genre.

All servers on most MMO games are full for the first week or two.

Agreed, but the first "week or two" doesn't technically begin until Tuesday. It makes me wonder how much more of a player influx there will be.

Every mmo faces this.

I've been on Aion launch, Rift and SWTOR and all of them were overflowing on launch day and sort of the first week.

With swtor it was first 2 weeks

Well it is the only MMO that doesn't make you subscribe after you buy. So there is no worry about missing a few minutes of gametime. The worst part about MMOs with subscriptions I believe is that they charge you like a bill, but gametime ends everymonth no matter how much of it you actually get to use.

Love how forgiving people are with this games launch issues, but diablo 3 got a shitstorm of backlash for having issues on release. People are stupid...

Asking $60 for a PC game you can only play online and then having massive issue the first day out is what is stupid.

They are basically comparing some of blizzards fans to some of ArenaNets fans to some degree. only positive signs for gw2 players.
