If you happen to thought Guild Wars 2’s No Quarter was going to be the discharge champion of this big-launch MMO week, you deserve a complete pot of winnings as a result of on this weird 2020, ArenaNet managed to place out functioning and high-quality content material within the new residing story episode, beloved by both players and our own critics.

Not all MMOs fared so properly.

As we’ve been overlaying, The Elder Scrolls Online’s Greymoor struggled out of the gate on Tuesday, coming offline nearly instantly for what gamers report was a bug that granted gamers who didn’t purchase the chapter entry to the content material, whereas many gamers who did purchase it have been locked out. After being down a lot of the day – hitting EU gamers the toughest -, the sport in the end got here again up and was playable Wednesday, although ZeniMax took the servers down again this morning in one other try to repair entry bugs for paying gamers.

In the meantime, Phantasy Star Online 2 launched on PC with out a lot hoopla yesterday, although large swathes of the players couldn’t actually log in thanks to some serious client and Windows 10 access bugs. About half our personal employees making an attempt to play bumped into the login challenge itself, and the issues didn’t cease there. Right here’s MOP’s Justin, commenting on his expertise:

“For causes which are in all probability not superb, SEGA made PSO2 solely out there by the much-loathed Home windows Retailer slightly than providing it by the PSO2 website and even Steam. Individuals struggled to get the file, to leap by the various hoops of registering and logging in, and to get it working in any respect. For me, I spent a number of hours downloading it, solely to search out errors each time I attempted to load the sport. I needed to uninstall it, replace to the very newest model of Home windows 10, reinstall it, and run it as an administrator earlier than I may get to the launcher. One other challenge was the truth that PSO2 begins in a much-reduced window mode, which a buddy on Twitter instructed me might be resolved by altering the decision, not within the recreation itself, however on the launcher. Certain. That’s intuitive. In any case, it was a scorching mess that put an enormous damper on what ought to have been a really thrilling day for the MMORPG group, and I’m pointing all types of fingers at SEGA for poor communication and decision-making throughout this.”

If you happen to’re in search of assist from SEGA’s principal Twitter account, you gained’t see a lot there on the core feed; the corporate has replied to a minimum of one criticism with a quick apology, nonetheless.

Supply: ESO, PSO2
