    Well I am having that issue now but before that, I couldn't see anything on the character creation screen only a sky with a fire in the back left and some sort of tornado. As someone said the game has expanded its Beta list so I am assuming that this is just a hiccup, hope i can play it soon.

    I'm baffled at how upset people are about being unable to log in to a beta...some of the major issues that get addressed in MMORPG betas are things like stress tests, login/authentication load tests, server capacities, etc. I want to try it too, but eesh. The point of betas is to get this stuff addressed before it goes live. I wouldn't extrapolate beta issues into worries about the game's stability when it goes live.

    Bah having the same prob myself. No biggie though, I just wanna try it out and see if it's as good as I'm hoping. I'll just do some daily crap on WoW and try in an hour or so!
    Anyone who didn't expect this sort of thing is just really naieve (sp?)!

    Way too many beta keys compared to last beta event imo, probably what's doing all this.

    Heh, servers actually were up 15 minutes early. Started to play the game and they recommended I go to low resolution which requires a restart.

    Damn my crappy video card lol.

    Oh well it doesn't bother me too much as its to be expected with a beta. With all the people trying to log in at once I'm not surprised it crashed

    Most likely yeah. Seeing 1500 queues right now. Okay login servers are experiencing a large number of requests but why can't I create a character? Seems like the server capacity isn't very good as well. Let's see how this goes.

    But it´s a beta, dont forget that!
    Remember the game is during construction. One thought, maybe they gave out so many beta keys to "stress" test their login severs and how to solve/handle the problem/problems. So again, give it time this is nothing compared to WoW betas.....

    This game is freaking awesomeness to the fullest ! I've already pre-ordered it and got 3 months of gameplay just like HybridPanda(although he got 6 months )

    I think it will actually attract numerous people from WoW.Of course the only thing that can beat wow is when the developers decide to quit it,since WoW has millions subscribers monthly,but I think Rift has high chances of becoming good ^^


    The only thing I am afraid of is that due to the many MANY classes and speccs u can create it will be difficult to balance PvP-Wise.But if the developers dont slack like WoW(which does the same strategy for years(and the reason I quitted 1 week ago) to put classes from nerf to op then nerf them medium them nerf then again OP somebody else etc same story same shit) or NSoft (which didnt even care for Aion PvP) I think the game will be a success

    Although I enjoy its PvE aspect too,I think I'll go for the PvP one and create a shadow ranger with stealth and assasin-like with a longbow

    It's either this, or they are really stupid if they haven't seen this coming. Let's hope you are right

    OMFG they copied the login server crashes from WoW!

    I got into a RP-PvP server 10 mins before the realms were meant to go up but my graphics were completely screwed.

    Could only see nameplates, a gray ground and a fiery sky, with some spell animations. Not character or world models at all.

    But by the time I restarted the game the login issues started. Havnt got in since

    but for real people.. it's beta. their servers have been stressed like this yet. if anything it's a good thing since it gives them a chance to work the kinks out before the game goes live. And I haven't seen blizz have a clean launch yet. every xpack they have had issues with the login servers being crashed too hard. Glad I'm at work right now and they will hopefully have these issues resolved 4 hours from now when i get home.

    Thanks to Scythen for the sig
