Success for MMOs isn't measured at launch. It's measured in sustained subscribers per year after launch.

If they asked how I died tell them: Still angry.

True but a successful launch is still success in one form or another. Time will tell how successful it really is.

lol, that's because everyone is staying logged in while AFK to guarantee a spot on the server.

I'm hoping this game will be a success. If it becomes successful, I'll definitely get in on the fun. I'm staying away for now due to my previous experiences with new p2p games failing after the first 3-5 months.
