D&D stands for Download and Download again...
So I figured, Ok, everyone's chattering about this Neverwinter Online - I wonder if they'd support my legacy display hardware like DDO does....might as well check it out.
So I spend a few hours trying to download it. At least once the download process seemed to lockup on my PC, a few times there were unexplained download errors and the message "try again later", I tried to download it to my USB drive and that was way too slow, so I did eventually download it. Went to install it where it gleefully copied the 3GB of compressed files I just downloaded to another folder then installed and updated. (And I'm on a fast, solid wired connection.)
After trying several times to pick a name, because so many were taken, I finally found a 14 character name that at least I could remember even if it wasn't very desireable. Figured out to use my email to login rather than that name, went through configuration screens, etc..etc.
Finally I could PLAY,.but just when I was about to see what Neverwinder really was like:
Sheesh. Too much trouble. Guess it will remain a mystery for another day.
I haven't checked out their forums yet, either.
(Yes, I know its in beta, and yes I have seen worse, I just found the whole thing rather amusing given all the hype I've been hearing...)
