So they invited only 5 people to the VIP demo and those 5 people invite 20k to 50k of their closest friends. So the servers died. Just really pissed that all the free loaders who spent nothing get to play and the ones who payed money don't. Not really VIP if the ones who got free codes also get to play. How do you not know how many people are going to play your game. 5K preorders and if you assume or limit 3 friend codes per preorder that 15K max players. And there are 300 streamers. So servers that can handle 20K per platform should be more than enough. So someone really and Truly dropped the ball here and oversold or just gave codes to everyone thinking they were a marketing Genius.
This is why Marketing department needs to learn how IT works and server workloads.
I waited but it remained at 95% quite a few times finally it made it. I usually waited a few minutes before I started it all over.
Hope you’re in now.
