Some MMO launches (and headstarts) come and go without much fuss, and some are the equivalent of a klutzy 7th grader who trips over their own shoelaces, hits a lunch tray full of hash browns and ketchup, and splatters the front two tables in the room with red goo. Or, for those forever stuck in the 90’s, they’re the “Did I do that?” Urkels.
Oh yes. An Urkel reference. Consult your local Wikipedia.
I guess Aion is a bit of an Urkel right now, with horrendous queues, connection issues, crashes, issues with not being able to get on the same server as your buddies, and even having the wrong client getting in the way of people being able to play. I’m sure this will all smooth itself out in time, but wasn’t this supposed to be the ultra-polished game we were hearing so much about?
Or was the “polish” more in reference to the game engine and less to NCSoft’s handling of the servers and setup?
