OK, here's my experience so far. The game was released straight into maintenance' but as SQEX said at E3 they were trying to please everyone by getting it out earlier than expected. Then we went into extended maintenance which is now complete. Obviously the rush to get into the game has broken everything for many, so perhaps we will need to be patient once again. Plenty more going on in my life, so no panic. Maybe a slightly delayed release could have prevented some of this, and maybe not. If the problem is just that the game is wildly more popular than expected, then I don't know how you legislate for that. I shall wait, and connect as and when. After all, I wasn't expecting this game this morning! Chill chill.
