There's still a limit on total server capacity per world, and there's no guarantee that they can direct all of a world's servers to just "starter planets". By letting people in via "waves", they can monitor loading, have time to bring new worlds online as needed, etc.

The bottom line is that if they didn't throttle the inflow of customers, they could wind up with a major mess on their hands. If anyone thinks people are QQing now, just imagine what would happen if they had to shut down the game for "emergency maintenance" on the first day.

They'll deserve a lot of praise if they can pull off a smooth launch, and if people are having fun... a month from now they simply won't care if they got in on December 13th or on December 15th.
