It’s great to see a new MMO pop-up to challenge the realm of Warcraft, but the problem is all of those disgruntled players of Blizzard’s money makers are willing to give anything a chance… all at once.
Those who pre-ordered Aion, all 400,000 of them, have flooded the servers. Simply put, the servers can’t handle it. Wait times exceeding two hours seem to the common complaint, and who can blame anyone for complaining about that? It takes away the benefit of the pre-order, that of early access before other players. And lets face it, the slightly less populated world could have its benefits. Hopefully the issue is cleared up soon, and early subscribers can reap the benefits.
