's local launch has gone pretty well, according to producer Scott Hartsman
. A recent letter to the players
confirms last week's whispers
that over two million players have registered for the game, which certainly goes a long way to explaining those launch queues. Between North America and Europe, the game currently has 21 active servers in total, and Hartsman stated that character creation restrictions are being rolled back as the populations begin to stabilize.
The letter goes on to address the issue of bots, many of which have already been unceremoniously ejected from the game. The game's most recent patch
restricts chatting in several channels (Faction, Trade, Nation, Shout, and Need Party) to characters who are level 15 or higher, and a learning anti-spam feature is on track to be integrated into the base game. There's also discussion about catching up with holiday content and the like, so those two million registered players should have plenty of stuff to do
