It happened in WOW launch and again here. They could have let people in like those Socialist governments ration supplies and then it would have been even a bigger outrage. The only solution is getting more servers and they are not doing so. You can't tell people "hey man, don't login on 15th may because you know the server will crash if too many people do that". Or they could have sold lesser number copies but that goes against their money grabbing schemes. They are the most pre-ordered game on Amazon ever and they knew people were going to play at the prescribed time when game goes live.

People that scream for refunds on the day a game releases are just ridiculous. If you seriously don't have the patience to wait a few hours while a game works out a some bugs then there are bigger issues. I am betting the majority of those people never even consider going to get a refund, they just want to make some noise and act like fools. The next day they are playing just as much as everyone else and completely forgot about launch day.
The more I read gaming forums the more I lose hope of ever being able to play a game again with people that aren't trolls, whiners, dramaqueens, etc. It's hard to find people that just want to play and enjoy the game without listening to tons of BS in the process. Maybe it's because I am getting older but I know the community has changed so it's not entirely me.
The community in Tera is horrible, general is constantly spammed with stupid stuff. Constant trolling and Alienware talk, like they just discovered Alientware was overpriced junk and these are all new jokes to them. My tolerance for this type of crap has gone way down and now I want to just play RPG's with friends rather than dealing with the MMO crowd of immature kiddies.

They got to the heap because out of all the creatures on earth, mankind has proven to be the most creatively vicious and bloodthirsty species on the planet.

Considering that Runic had a hectic first few days with their beta (after the "Second wave") I can't imagine they would feel anything but sympathy.
