The servers are pretty stable for a release, I've seen worse things. Occasional lags but all in all playable.

But not getting access to the subscriber features sucks hard, i want my Zombot cry

How they managed to fuck up their billing is beyond my imagination, there are quite a few 3rd party cc billing solutions around that gave me the impression of being quite stable.

Browsing the HGL forums brings up stories of people who were able to subscribe before they took subscription down and got an confirmation mail for an different account name than their own - scary...

Maybe I'll wait a week or so to actually subscribe. Given what I've seen so far I'm not in the mood for their CC# data to end up posted to their forums. I really wouldn't be surprised at all.

FFS scares me.

Well, I'll never buy from the EA online store again that's for sure. Without a detailed account of events, after a 4 hour download I couldn't play the game, apparently because I chose to change the default install directory in the EA Download Manager. Not only couldn't I play it, but when I went to uninstall it to try re-downloading it proceeded to spend 1.5 hrs filling my partition with arbitrary and seemingly useless invisible temp files until an entire 40 gig partition ran out of space (nothing on it but HG:L). I watched with amusement just to see what would happen.

Rather than re-download, I found my beta installer, installed it, patched up to retail and got in somewhere around 2 am PST. Which I'm ok with, I don't mind buying a key to activate my beta install. But fuck you for making me spend 2 hours installing, uninstalling and reformatting before that stage.

The BestBuy that made it immpossible to get through to their customer service yesterday?  They got the game in, and now its sold out.   awesome, for real

The BestBuy under the fucking freeway, way out of my way?  Has some copies (some is how the stock was described to me) but refuses to let me hold the fucking game.

The Beta installer works but is missing some things. Like the single-player game. You might want to download the full installer from EA some night. After it decrypted I copied the directory to another machine and it installed without any EA garbage required. I also split the files up and archived the installer directory onto two DVDs for any future installs.

Server Coming Down!
Howdy folks. We're taking the servers down just for a bit at 5:30PM PDT. We're going to add a patch that opens up the Halloween content for everyone, subscriber or not. We should be back up shortly. Thanks!

I think the forums might be on the same server.  It seems to be down when the game is down.  I hope it's a big server like NCsoft.

Which server is east coast? I think Shulgoth is on the west coast as my traceroute seems to head that way. I saw another US server earlier which seemed to trace east. Better ping for me.

Anyone have any information as to the locations of the various servers?

They have some lessons to learn...quick. Bringing down the servers at primetime on launch day to patch in "halloween content"? Are you joking me?

According to the forum, Shulgoth is in San Francisco.

And the client is still crashy. I've been having sync issues, which I didn't have in beta. The memory is still there too.

No seriously, what the fuck is this bush league horseshit? I've never seen a game that works and yet get so willfully fucked up by people NOT CODING THE GAME. Can anyone else point me to an instance of that? I'm in awe. Not that they're reading this but wholesale firings of their PR and Marketing departments is in order. Why didn't anyone say, "You know, guys, the patch hasn't gone in in the twenty four or so hours we've been up... I think we can wait until prime time is done."

Ping0, the guys and gals that fuck things up, seem to be a separate operating unit of Flagship.  Best name for a customer service/relations group ever.

Server was sub 100ms for me in eastern canada. Memory leak is annoying but the game loads quick so dumping out every 2hrs or so provided a little break.

They really have to add a status to the server login to atleast warn people about the downtime or make the chat window pop up by default, not this:

Is there anyway to screen shot besides fraps? And how common is blue/yellow/etc items?

The print screen key should dump a bitmap into My Documents/My Games/Hellgate/Screenshots. Green items are most common (often drops), followed by blue, orange, yellow (once every few weeks? ish...give or take).

They took the servers down and the natural result is hundreds of thousands of rabid fans going to the website. That's a universal truth for online games. The site didn't go down until 2 minutes after the servers went down. It took Blizzard two years of upgrading their web servers until it didn't go absolutely haywire every time the servers were down for more than 5 minutes, including Tuesday scheduled maintenance.
