I agree with OP

The reason for staggered launch from my understanding is to

* Keep the servers stable
* Spread the population out across the different servers
* Not to overwhelm the starting Areas

But the servers are all on LOW population and from the feedback of the players that have access the areas are all empty

SO WHYYYY ? why the extra wait ?

I think they should keep letting people in, keep the flow going... its been many hours since the last wave, the starting areas should be completely empty ? and the server pop is still low across all the server

They already had a server crash with this minimal deployment, you bet they are being cautious.

Staggered Launch makes sense, but huge break does not. If they wanted the 5 waves in a day they should have spread those 5 out through the day. They did not so they either have or dont a reason for it. If they had a reason they should have said what it was even if it was we are setting up more servers or changing the server caps on current servers. But just going with "we are gonna do 5 waves over 8 hours and than say screw you guys we're going home." isn't exactly the best route.

Thank you sir for responding with logic, on top of the low server pop you have the whole full xp for PVP matches that end due to low player numbers. I was 100% sure this was gonna be fixed by launch as it was so talked about during the last 2 weekend betas.

Im in the same boat as most of you, yea ill get in soon but i don't like knowing i am starting behind in an MMO.

Do any of you guys / gals wish you had the seemingly short work days that the team working on this release has?

Honestly I was under the impression was going to be throughout the day an night waves keep going through not the few waves we had today the 4 planned and a bonus wave. I understand stopping during primetime, But seriously you gotta have some system or person who would be able to continue the waves after and through the night.

At the rate we have now people in sept wont have access till monday, because if you wont bge doing night waves what makes us think you will be doing waves during the weekends?

i agree with you also, lack of information is frustrating, found myself in many of a bad situations in Afghanistan because of this simple concept. KEEP THE INFORMATION FLOWING.

ha, i saw that on the server list. its the home to my guild. I wonder if any of them were on when it did. wonder what and how the crash "felt"? laggy then a quick stop, or long periods of spikes, then lags then a lockup onscreen.
Is this where I put the signature? Well I want to show everyone I have the collector's edition and seem like a really cool guy. Will bold type and color text help say that?
