Today's diary entry is going to skip around a bit, as I'm still dabbling all over ArcheAge
and finding it nearly impossible to convey everything important inside of a few thousand words. If you're just joining us, this is day five of Massively's launch chronicle
because even though the game "launched" yesterday, it really launched last Friday via the founder head start.
I'm aware that some people had disconnect issues and nightmare two-hour login queues on the 16th. I did not have much trouble with either, presumably because of my Patron account status regarding the latter. Trion
does have some work to do, though, as I noticed a lot of slow-down in high-traffic areas throughout much of my play session last night, and I also logged into a black screen more than once and had to re-queue as a result.
In other words, it was a typical MMO launch day. I've seen better, but I've also seen far, far worse.
