Wow. Game is already full after 7 hours. I don't remember games ever filling up so fast. Is this normal?
This figure shown at game area front page includes also the pre-signups. There were some 600+ pre-joins to this game and about 50 others when the game opened (before filling up). Like I posted in the news, the interest has been greater than expected which is a nice thing of course.
The pre-joins will expire in about two days and if everyone won't sign up it will then free their reserved game spots for others (but so far 400+ have already confirmed their reservation).
Also (as per your report), for information: There was an issue in the pre-joining system that didn't allow people to join the game for a few hours just now, but it's been fixed. The pre-joining does reserve the game spot for you..
Will we still see rapid slot expansion the first few years or will this be a "throwback" to when we used to start with more slots and experience slow and steady slot growth throughout the game?
The current setting for slot amount is high but it will probably gradually reduce at some point back towards more normal levels (=no 300/hr in LHR).
