What scares me is that this isn't even the official launch. Imagine buying the game, then you can't even make a character.
That would be the worst feeling ever.

I'm an idiot. I FINALLY got in a few hours ago and played about an hour. Logged OFF to let someone else use the comp to check something when I could have minimized the game..  I've been trying to get back on for 45 minutes now:(

I don't know why I keep checking the server status sites, it only rubs salt into the wound that I can't get in.

I am bent on getting back on Diabolos tonight. People have to sleep at some point and I don't have to work tomorrow: P

Yeah, you say that. People will refuse to log off, preventing us from getting on.

I haven't been able to get back on my server for more than 24 hours.
If I ever get in... they'll need to 90,000 me out of there. That's the only way I'm ever disconnecting.

They blocked the JP servers for NA too now. Hard to not feel insulted at this point.

I figure tomorrow is another day - too many good games to play to bang my head against this wall.

Edit: isn't one of the definitions of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results? :-D

I'm done for the night too. I'm off tomorrow and it should be a lot easier to log in. Hopefully.

25 servers for JPN (population: 127,960,000)
28 servers for NA/EU (population: 740,308,000 + 528,720,588)

Clearly nobody saw the server load problem happening...
They blocked the JP servers for NA too now. Hard to not feel insulted at this point.

Yeah, that's a load of bullshit.  I don't understand how they underestimated the NA/EU population by so much. 

Yeah, you say that. People will refuse to log off, preventing us from getting on.

That's exactly what's happening.  Not sure if it's true or not but I heard there's no mechanism to kick idle players off so you can just stay logged on for as long as you want (assuming no errors).

Anyway, I'm just glad I was able to make a character on a decent server before they locked it all down.  Played for a bit last night and didn't run into any issues once I was able to log in. 

I'd probably be waaaay more pissed if I wasn't currently hooked on LoL =P

Oh and just out of curiosity... how much audio is supposed to be in the game?  They give us a choice of languages, but there isn't a whole lot of audio?

Just kind of curious because my client size is only like 9.1 gigs and the game box system requirements says 20 gigs...

Isn't that sometimes meant to imply that you should save room for expansions? I could be wrong..

Looks like the newest update didn't help.  I was placed in a queue, then it said World is currently full.

Sorry to sound like such a dumbass, but I was in the middle of Halatali, and my screen went completely black for about five minutes. Is this supposed to happen or is it another glitch?  I'm so tired, I'm delirious but I asked my party and they just acted like I was a derp.
