lifeshield man, yeah i didnt mean why didnt you pre-order, was just throwing that out... i agree dude, it sucks and should be available, its nothing physical... sucks dude hope you get it sorted out soon

masked dude, sorry, just think its retarded that any game in 2012 doesnt come out with aa... i get it, youre gonna defend bioware to the death on anything they do, its just craptastic its not in imho... and its hardly shocking to expect it when dude said 'at or around launch,' so fine it ain't in, but like i said, not exactly expecting the world... already given them a pass on these embarrassingly bad textures, just wanna see if they can at least round out some jaggies...

I'm an admin, I defend the majority in nearly every situation because it's how I make money.

Problems for ANY system go in order of majority.

AA is by FAR not the majority.

I personally think they've hit capacity and have to consolidate...Until that happens, AA isn't there, sorry...That's just reality.

The same would be true if I had released this game, today...(I'm actually kind of pissed at Bioware atm but, logic > emotion)...Those 2.4 million people playing and enjoy my product take 100% precedence to graphics...100% of the time.

I would be shocked if any admin actually said otherwise.

Can you expound on this? Are you saying they've hit max stable server pop, or they don't have enough servers for everyone or neither?


Also to folks taking about DDE being 'sold out', they're limiting the sale of DDE obviously, so they don't have thousands ordering DDE since physical copies are sold out. They can't afford to have another couple hundred thousand people line up to get into servers if they can't currently handle the load. It looks bad on them, I would think. Copies will become available again. I'd actually check back on the DDE edition on Origin every day or so to see if it's suddenly available again. I was able to reorder the DDE just yesterday morning (Origin screw up, long story).

Well, realistically you have 2 issues here.

1) Overpopulation.

Right now, it's xmass break...Combine that with Pre-Release numbers and you've got a bloated base...Meaning, you don't have any actual real data as to who's going to be on that server long-term.

If they're just kids, it's 3 weeks and then...They're gone, playing school nights etc.

So this gives a false-positive...Meaning, their hands are tied for the next few weeks.

2) Server base.

They're running on the latest and greatest so, this isn't an issue of the HARDWARE handling the population because their racks are seriously high tech.

It's a matter of the GAME handling the population.

They've discussed instancing zones/areas and it's moderately possible, they did it a bit in beta but, they haven't actually gotten their yet in game.

~~

Combine both issues and you've got a bloated population base WITH an unknown population max.

I think they tested it a bit this morning but, they're not going to allow like, 20 people per "area" (I mean questing) because that kills their goal which is maximum enjoyment of every person (long term).

Right NOW, their goal is to get everyone in the game...I've heard their min number is 5%...So, until 95% of their overal population is in the game...They're not really worrying about anything else which is logical.

There are some issues they're tackling now but, I quite honestly think they've reached their max pop on MOST of the servers and are trying to figure out how to spread them out.

My server for example has the top 3/4 former EQ/WOW guilds so, there are a metric ton of people playing on our server trying to get into them...It's dynamics like that, that Bioware didn't account for.

Like I said, I personally think they've hit their wall and they need to figure out how to efficiently spread the population out...

It's a numbers game...Nothing more, nothing less.

This is totally retarded. You want to buy the game on launch day and you cannot because they 'cannot cope' with the demand?

For Pve I just usually do a bunch of cool looking animation skill as most mobs are easy to kill tongue.gif on elite boss I tend to do Force Leap, Zealous Strike and a bunch of Slash and Master Strike.
My queue have been really low. I just enter and was just 5 minutes.

Because cauterize is a beastly DoT that is well worth the 2 focus cost. Over 6 seconds the 2 focus cauterize is equal to about 2 slashes for me. Let's me continue to damage while I catch up if they get away and interrupts them from activating nodes etc.

Oh I didnt know it was a DoT abilitie. I just check it and it is with elemental damage. Reading comprehesion fail tongue.gif I just read that it does x amount of dmg, but didnt get the elemental dmg part.

I don't know of any other MMO that launched with over 2 million players. I honestly think BioWare messed up with releasing the game this late in December for reasons Masked stated. It ties their hands on doing a lot of things as early as possible to make the game available to as many as possible because their data isn't reliable.

Actually it isn't retarded. Considering the amount of QQ from server queues for those who got EGA, it is beyond logical for them to limit the number of available copies so they can control the extent to which people are forced to wait to play. You know you would lose your $%^* if you had to wait 3+ hours to log in because of them letting everyone who bought the game be able to log in simultaneously. BW has done a great job of letting the public know of their plans, so people who chose to wait and not pre-order essentially shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know what you guys are talking about...Just ordered the digital version off of origin just to see if I could (My boss wants a copy so this isn't a waste)...And it was successful.

I don't think you can order the physical copy anymore...But, digital, yes.
