TLR This was the worst launch I have ever experienced in any game.
Well I have nothing better to do so I will share my experience with you ...
So I come back to WoW and decide to play MoP, 1 week before launch I upgrade my account, grab a month, upgrade my PC a bit and wait for the launch.
Since in this period I have a lot of free time, I figure I will try to compete for a realm first then continue casually.
Launch day, I go ahead and buy a lot of energy drinks, 3 packs of cigarettes and some snacks, log in an hour and a half and wait for the release.
10 minutes before midnight I place myself near the guy you have to turn in (me and a few hundred more), having played the beta i knew the drill. It was a bit laggy but nothing too much.
Finally the system message appears, 30 seconds later the quest, 1 minute later the cutscene and then the login screen, so much for not having to log out to enable the xpac.
2 hours later of logging in and waiting at 90% loading bar, somehow I manage to get in and queue for a random and get in and finish it. Naturally the group queued for another then after finishing it everyone left.
Figured by then the server has stabilized but the world server and the ~30 seconds delays proved me wrong.
1 hour and 30mins later once again I get into a random, finish it and now I'm waiting inside for another queue to pop being afraid to leave.
Overall after 4 hours the outdoor world is unplayable and I'm sitting at 35% xp into 85 while some people are already 87 ... best xpac by far ...
How was it for you?
