You can even tell they prepared well since the login servers have yet to fail, on the original EQ and SWG on launch the login server would crash once many people tried to logon, this has yet to happen with EQ2.

I give SOE credit, they proved all the haters wrong by having a nearly flawless launch...
I am not moving to "Certain" servers because I am stupid. I moved to Antonia Bayle because it was flagged the role play server. I have/had certain expectations of the server before I go to them. I went in on tuesday and have stayed there because of that. fortunately they added another RP server due to the high demand of the RP crowd which was unexpected.

I think this launch has been anything but perfect. My server has crashed 3 times today. Utterly ridiculous because its gone down for hours at a time.

3 times is great, trust me.... On EQL's Expansion releases you cant even logon due to the login server crashing... with the amount of people playing on released (mind you this release is bigger then any other MMORPG to date) this is a GREAT launch.

SOE has easily topped 100k people playing on release (US + EU) and that alone is just nuts for everything being so smooth.

supposedly they had some power issues and why some servers went down, permafrost mine went down as well...

I still think overall it is a great launch compared to EQ1, and what I thought might happen

Probably something going on in DC, looks like all the DC based servers are down. I'll call me sister and see if she has had any power issues at her Apt (she lives in DC).

I'm a little confused on how these servers work..

So if 100 people log onto server A, and 100 log onto server B, can the people in server A see the people in server B?

How many people are usually on one server?

Each server is a world, the worlds hold about 5000 people (could be more, could be less, only SOE knows for sure), Server A and Server B are two different worlds. Nothing is shared between them. There is also something called a Login Server which does nothing more then log you into the game, aka Authenticate your account.

SOE has implemented a feature that allows players to send tells cross server so you can atleast communicate with your friends who play on another server, you can even contact players who play in another SOE game such as Planetside or Everquest 1. Really awsome of SOE to do this so people who left the original can still talk to their friends.

I've played through 3 launch mmorpgs. Going down is one thing. But server downtime length/variation is another. This launch has been no better/no Worse than than Lineage 2/EQ1, and SWG launch I have played. City of Heroes IMO had a better launch. Only game I have seen with a "worse" launch is Anarchy Online.

Sure its gone "ok". But just because its a mmorpg and bugs are to be expected doesnt mean we give Sony a free ride and excuses for bugs/server instability.
