    I get to the part where I try to enter world, it hangs and I get kicked, then it tells me I have a character logged in...its just rubbing salt in my wounds at this point.

    More than likely you can't I had two characters trying to enter the world and now I am stuck at trying to get them logged out so I can try and log back in!!!

    Same here - character is made. It's been 'Entering Ak'Anon' - for a while. But name approval took about 4 minutes... so I'll be patient.

    o_O

    Edit: Server not responding. Yeah, gonna take 2 hours to get in, lol

    No it doesn't make financial sense. None of you are quitting because launch day is rough. You are all addicts or you wouldn't be playing a 20 year old game.

    It also isn't likely about the code, it's probably just the strain on the available resources, and as someone else said, you don't plan your resources around something that happens once a year for a day or two.

    Same here....at least I got the name I wanted??

    Gives me more time to smoke up I guess.

    You probably didn't get your name. If it crashes, it's deleting characters and then saying that name is taken.

    Its amazing how everyone suddenly becomes experts on 20 year old code/hardware and how easy it is to fix....

    I'm going to guess they don't just have servers for eq separate from all the other games and there has to be ways to tune the load between games. Time to bump up the priority for eq for a day?

    It will be interesting to see the chaos if everyone who got to the character creations screen and hit enter world and then got booted, now have that toon and that name forever gone. Uff, can you imagine that mess?

    Some communication other than "wait please" would be great though

    I expect to be able to play the game I pay for at the time I want to play it when it is supposed to be available to me that's what I want.

    I'm getting further - now I can say as well that I at least made it to the create character screen.

    Which is terrifying actually because I'm still torn up on what to create. But the music is soothing and exciting me.

    Just look at it like your first boss fight on the server:

    Login_Server_001 RAMPAGES!!
    Login_Server_001 Hits YOU for 257 points of damage.
    Login_Server_001 Hits YOU for 257 points of damage.
    Login_Server_001 Hits YOU for 257 points of damage.
    Login_Server_001 Hits YOU for 257 points of damage.
    Login_Server_001 kicks YOU for 3 points of damage.
    You have been slain by Login_Server_001
    Loading... please wait.

    *Then the sound of crickets and frogs in the newb zone*
