I finally bought SI yesterday.
I was a bit worried before I installed it, as I'd heard of lots of horror stories of installs gone wrong.

Well, I installed the game fine.
I registered SI first time no probs and it all patched fine.

So, thumbs up to Mythic/GOA, it worked OK for me.

Graphically, in the new areas, I could see it was better, but in the old areas I didn't notice much change, apart from the water and of course the interface has changed considerably.


Anyway, I'm happy enough with it.

One annoying thing was how FEW shops actually had SI in stock.
I had to go to a games specialist shop to get it, and even then because so few places had got it in at all, most of them were out of stock.

am i an elitist bastard if i think it's a little silly to compliment someone on something that's really a given?

i mean when you buy an expansion you expect to have it registered without a hitch atleast from the dev's side.

Yes, I see what you're saying, but I think it's polite to congratulate on a job well done.

If saying "you did well" is silly, well, that's your worldview I guess, but I disagree with it.

Isn't it inevitable that on the first few days it's gonna be busy as hell?
Expecting GOA to have massive servers to cope with the massive influx of people registering the product on the first few days is a bit much, since after the intial rush, it'll slow down to a more manageable pace.
I'd prefer them to spend that money on improving the play servers to handle the greater amount of players (which they have done).

I appreciate that for those people who managed to get a copy on the release date and were then frustrated by busy registration servers probably are annoyed, and maybe I would too.
I'm just trying to say that it's not a big surprise that it was slow for a bit.
