The gamers themselves win E3, doesn't matter if your a hardcore Sony, Xbox or Nintendo fan since it always boils down to the software available and every console had some games that really shined - so this will be a good year for gamers.

This is a brand new cause, arenanet have made some really horrible mistakes in the past such as the whole ascended fiasco and backlash, we forgive them because in the end - it wasn't really that big of a deal.  Casual players could still get hold of these items, even if it took slightly longer.

However, come the next patch on Febuary 26th this introduces Guild Missions which is already causing huge backlashes and something that should not be forgiven so easily.  This patch spells disaster for many small and casual guilds, the new guild missions are aimed at very large and highly active guilds only - all other players will either have to potentially wait months, maybe longer just to unlock some of these missions, not neccessily even being able to take them down.

The first guild bounty upgrade on Febuary 26th was for some moronic decision, the guild upgrade was placed into Art of War V catagory meaning, if you was in a PvE based guild, AoW5 has no meaning for you -- and not worth spending valuable influence on in the first place! Bear in mind...these missions are also PVE!!  And thats really on the icing on the cake,  some of the later upgrades are even more hardcore.   Really, it spells a disaster for the game in general if this patch goes live - its going to cause alot of anti-trust in arenanet, it WILL cause alot of people to quit the game - and to prevent this from happening, the players needs to take a stand -

If you care about what happens to Guild Wars 2 - join the cause

Well, The Diablo 2 launch was better at least it was playable for a few hours before everything went south, and the servers was unavailable for nearly 2 days until they fixed the problems.

Lets face it, its 3:30am.  How many people are trying to log in at this time, a lot.  Tomorrow afternoon/evening they'll be 50x more people coming home from school/work.  So the problem will get substantially worse, Blizzard needs to add more server capacity + another login-server to deal with the load.   Look at the Asia launch, it was bad - the server crashed and was down for more than 8 hours, so did the European server.  Even now, a couple of of my friends on the Asian server are saying its really unstable, rollbacks every hour and plenty of d/cs.

I'll wait until tomorrow now, not even going to stay up because, the servers will be down for a while.  There just going to have to get more servers to handle the load.

Also, this is 3am.  It'll only get worse tomorrow.  I think, Blizzard again seriously underestimated the demand and the servers just can't handle it again.

Honestly? I was expecting it.  Same thing happened with D2 launch.  It took them several days to fix the problem for the NA servers.
