    Loving the free weekend so far. ~30GB download and can't even log in. Seems the servers must be overloaded.

    Getting: "And error has occurred. Please wait a few minutes and log in again."

    :(

    Trying the game now over the free weekend. Disappointed I can't enter to win the million.

    Grabbed this in the Explorers Pack version for ~$15 from G2A, playing on USA servers without any issues.

    I also played in the beta and it was just awful. Turned me right off, but then I saw a video review from just a few days ago and they've fixed practically all of the terrible, buggy issues that plagued it on release. Another $5 for a mount from the crown store just to make things a bit easier, but that'll be the only thing I actually buy.

    Quite fun, but I wouldn't mind a lower ping as it would flow nicer if I could counter/dodge at real time.

    It was down on the w/was well for the One Tam.

    It really should not need so many complete outages. It's just lazy design and infra. mgt.

    Wasn't down on the weekend for me? It went down Monday night as their usual patch cycle and then last night for the update.

    Downloaded this via steam on the weekend. Launched it, left the patch update downloading while I was at work and when I came home, steam can't see that it's installed?! Run the launcher in the steam apps folder and it gets to menu but then tells me I need to launch via steam.

    Sigh.

    You get about 500 crowns (ingame currency) which isn't very much because DLCs are like 2000 each (or bundle of 4 is 5000). Morrowind isn't a DLC because of a legal technicality Zenimax came up with, that one you need to buy as an expansion. Although you can basically play the game as is without Morrowind in the free trial.

    Never reallly played MMO's like this but my daughter bought me Morrowind for xmas. Just in the process of downloading the 25gb patch.. I really liked Skyrim. So hopefully ill get some good gametime out of it.. But by reading its a bit crap especially with no Australasia servers

    Aussie server wouldn't have survived anyway. You'll get about 300 ms latency. It is more noticeable in pvp

    Plays fine at that latency when in PVE. I'd almost classify the game as a single-player-MMO to be honest. You can do almost everything on your own, and there's a lot of quests to do. For the dungeons, you can usually find someone to run you through them, so no biggie there. Worth a play for sure.
