World of Warcraft Pre-Expansion Problems

Blizzard Continues to Have Problems Pre-Launch

After all the waiting yesterday, all the patience until 3am, and what does Blizzard do for the gamers that keep them in business – NOTHING.

So, Wrath of the Lich King is gonna be in my hands in less than 12 hours and my thinking at this point is – so what? In the past 24 hours I have barely been able to play, because Blizzard has had the servers down because of a “mail system issue”. Then I finally get on and think that Blizzard is trying to be nice for all the lost game time by providing us with free epic pvp gear – but no, I log in this morning and find that it is just a glitch!! Grrr.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the game, and I will be getting the expansion at midnight tonight. I just am wondering if its worth it to stand outside in the cold for hours, to get a game that will most likely have serious problems for the first 2 weeks of its launch.

It seems to me that Blizzard has been pushing this launch so fast; and maybe its due to some loss of gamers to warhammer – but that loss is so small – the game is still “home” to many individuals – at lastest count about 8 million subscribers – so why push a launch so quickly and run the risk of major problems?

I guess that we will have to keep the faith with Blizzard and their team that they know what they are doing – I just hope that a lot of home bodied gamers are not dissapointed. We don’t like to have to go outside in the sunlight, it ravages out poor pale skin. LOL

I will be sure to post as soon as I have the expansion up and running!
