Realm 13, NElf starting area
a. Crowded? A bit less than I suspect will occur on launch day, but enough there to make it feel a wee bit crowded. I make it a tad over a dozen in the NElf starting area, competing for the nightsabers, thistle boars, grells, and grelkin. A lot of running around looking for targets due to the number of folks vieing for those animals at the same time. But FUN!!! F-U-N, I say, FUN!!!
b. Not too empty, not too crowded, and never got to move to the second zone. 23 minutes of play time and only lvl 2 due to competition for quest mobs. About what I expect to happen (maybe to a larger degree) on actual launch day once we get in.
A bit of lag, but I suspect that’s my ISP as the thunderstorms passed overhead about the same time. Graphics didn’t glitch, sound was good, overall no problems encountered that weren’t expected, and even those were rare and minimal.
