Logging in for the last month or two has been downright painful. As a rule I give it 3 shots, and then i move on to play something else. Soon it will be 2, then 1 and then not at all. This may take another month, or two, but eventually me and my monthly subscription will move on.
I've been with DDO since beta. I was a founding member of Mabar. I've been through a lot of rough patches with the game. I still think it is one of the best out there, and an under-appreciated game. However, very basic things (like being able to log in!) should be fixed.
I am not alone in this issue, I have lost an entire guild within the last few months. Unhappy with this or that, this bug or that design choice... my question is simple, how many times do you try to get in before saying it's time to move to something else?
