How it was launched? Garbage.
For several battle groups, they experienced server downtime of 24 hours the same time that Ruby Sanctum was released for public consumption. I have a big problem with this.
For progression raiders, timing is everything. You live and die by how fast you can down an encounter. Several battle groups weren’t able to do this yesterday — not and be competitive for the world-firsts.
Before this post turns into a giant QQ fest, I want to say that I enjoyed my night off raiding last night — gave me a good night’s sleep before I had to face the DMV at 8am this morning. My biggest issue though is the fact that it wasn’t even left as an option for the servers that were down to participate in the “first” kills of Halion.
If you’re going to do a content release like that, at least make it open to everyone at the same time. Not only will it save you about 70 pages of whining on the forums, but will also give the feeling of everyone being on the same playing field.
