I don’t think this needs many comments. While World of Warcraft servers go to hell, partly because of the retarded local server policy that makes peak times unplayable, I find this comment on Terranova:
Full disclosure here — I work for Vivendi Universal Games — Blizzard’s corporate parent. I went to the WOW midnight launch earlier this morning in Orange County and it was absolutely incredible. An estimated 8,000 people were in the parking lot by 11 PM — many times more than the 500 people that a similar event for WarCraft III attracted in 2002.
This was a launch that was done right
Yes, a launch done right. Vivendi couldn’t have done this better.
Keep going and leeching money. The cancer of this industry.
