Final Fantasy XIV's Launch Problems, SMITE and more! - The Daily XP August 28th
You would think that after the colossal failure that was the original launch 3 years ago, they would have learned a little something. Of course, the issues this time around are completely different, but I'm not one to ease up on the criticism. If you were one of the few that actually got to play yesterday during the launch, you probably had a decent time. There are plenty of raving reviews to be found all across the social network universe, but .. most likely you didn't get to play, and so the rest of us took to Facebook and Twitter to discuss our frustrations.
You don't have to hashtag FFXIV for very long to find cry babies everywhere whining about not being able to log-in. But I guess I understand your frustration, we've been waiting years for the re-launch and spent our hard-earned dollars to buy the damn thing, only to not be able to play. I fear that launch day problems are becoming the norm, in fact it would be breaking news if a game actually made it through launch day without a hitch. There are too many of us gamers who want to be the first at everything, including leaving the "first" comment on every youtube video ever, which means we all want to play on day one, and we'll all bitch about it if we can't.
