    If that's true, this game is not going to be successful.
    Depends on how much time you dedicate to the game per day. If you're like me and spend 2-3 hours on it on average per weekday, maybe up to 5-6 on weekend days, you'll need plenty more. But is you spend, say, 15 hours each day (leaving 8 hours for sleep and one hour for food), that adds up to 450 hours over a month. That's 250 hours more than, for example, Bioware said it'd take to see everything from start to end in SWTOR. I don't find it hard to believe you can experience just about everything in the game in 450 hours.

    Definitely not a problem for me. With my altitis and casual play, prob i'll never see max level anyway.

    Even with all the bugs i met, i personally think it's still a very good product, i'm happy i've purchased it and i'm enjoying it so much right now.
    I can't imagine how delightful it will be with all the bugs fixed.

    Obviously you just need to craft every recipe three times. Uno, dos, trays.

    Well did the six month open beta ensure WoW had a smooth bug free launch? It did not. Bugs were present as the patch notes will illustrate. But WoW also had issues which were arguably 'game breaking' for many. Here is one quote:

    "If you got past the queues, you were greeted with latency issues, including the infamous “kneel and loot stuff for half an hour” and the even more infamous “disconnect because Internet was really sketchy back then compared to now” and be greeted by the 1,000 person queue. Blizzard issued game time credits for lost playtime and the rocky ride lasted over a month. Afterward, the servers were plagued with dilapidated hardware that wasn’t optimized to run the game and the entire issue wasn’t “perfected” until all the servers were upgraded."

    Now people can argue about how many people bought WoW at launch compared to how many have bought GW2 etc etc. I get that. But my point is WoW isn't some sort of mythical 'perfect launch'. It was far from perfect. And that was with the benefit of a six month beta test. You see what i'm getting at?

    The way I see it, bugs will happen. As long as they're fixed quickly, I can forgive it. As long as the game is good, I can forgive it. Things could be a lot worse in week 1.

    And even with the latest patch it took me a day before I could even login.

    No news yet - but keep trying. A friend of mine reported he couldn't pick Desolation (EU) since it was full, less than five minutes later another friend could join because it was listed as High. Ten minutes later the first friend found it High as well (after a few client restarts, not sure if necessary) and was able to join.

    Sure you can. Any armorsmith, leatherworker or tailor can make 8-slot bags straight out of the bag. No pun intended.

    The populations fluctuate. So keep an eye out, I did that and after a few hours, far shiverpeaks was high and not full.

    I'm flat-out afraid of even touching it.
    Don't touch it, send in a ticket. I have the feeling they are quite trigger-happy with their bans if you use things that are not intended... to be used.

    I think the server status is shown by the number of people active on the server at a time.

    So me and a few friends started playing with early access, and rolled on Crystal Desert. A few more friends, who lagged on buying the game, can't make characters are my server because it seems to be full all the time. Its crazy, the server was full late last night and early this morning, so there is no fluctuation in population apparently.

    Does anyone know if anet is going to make the servers bigger? Me and my friends already playing really don't want to transfer to another server, so does that mean my friends who waited are just screwed now?
