It's an issue with the servers being overloaded. They are working on it. It's just not something you can prepare for without enough testing. They did an open beta test, but the amount of people who tried it was nothing compared to how many are now.
How can they have missed such serious issues before launch!!!
the guy who suggested online only should be burnt.
Up to ten minutes, then it's when the game gets back on the shelter.
Then it's when it all begins.
Have a laugh, and transfer yer money.
There's a very big difference between a closed (then briefly open) beta and putting your game straight onto the market. While a lot of people participated in the open beta, I'd put my money on the fact a lot of other people who planned to get the game with a more casual fascination didn't play the beta. Also, there is likely a high number of people who only played the beta once. That gives little chance for there to be a big test of constant stress on a server.
At least we're getting an emergency maintenance patch instead of waiting for a normalized patch day/time.
Actually, I was playing for a good two hours into the first hour of the emergency patch onwards. It's likely because they're focusing on a single server at a time--I was finally booted so they could fix things. I don't mind it one bit myself; I was lucky to still be in.
I'm sure you could ask your friends to wait up for you. c: Especially if you tell them about the severity of the patch needed.
