Liveblogging Launch Day Angst

3pm, EST, Aion goes live with the Headstart Servers. My wife isn't home, so my 12 year old son is stoked he gets first crack at her acct for the launch. He starts hammering the server, as I tell my 8 year old daughter that she has to stop playing on our other PC so daddy can log into Aion.

5 minutes = everything.

She saves what she is doing, and I hop onto that machine. Login, hit a queue. My son's character Locki dings 2 as I see a 20 minute queue message.

3:20, EST:
Locki: lvl 3
My Queue: 51 minutes

3:45, EST
Locki: lvl 5
My Queue: 1hour 2 minutes
Me: 1 Fosters Oil Can

4:30, EST
Locki: loggged out just shy of lvl 6
Tarot (my wife): lvl 1
My Queue: 1hour 19 minutes
Me: 1 Fosters Oil Can, 1 Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night

5:30, EST
Tarot: lvl 5
My Queue: 1 hour 3 minutes
Me: 1 Fosters Oil Can, 1 Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night, 1 Heavy Seas Loose Cannon

... the saga continues ...

It had settled down by later in the evening. We'll see how it goes tonight.

Fun night in any case! Great seeing old names in a new game.

I logged in but girlfriend didn't so we just made couple of characters on other server to play around till queues slow down. i'm very happy that they stuck to their guns and kept the queues to keep populations balanced

So I decide "Fuck it - I wanna play AION" and stop working @ 5 today. I had previously logged both accts in at 3 or so for the kids to play after school, so no launch day queues for me!

...

Except in my house I'm queued behind my two daughters (both lvl 4 Mages) as they nuke the shit out of Brax at the newb lake.

...

Fucking tiny griefers of RL!!!!!

I actually think it has what it takes to make it. But then again, I've always been a "glass is half full" kinda guy.
