In the last 10 days, there have been four days when the PlanetSide 2 EU server has been unavailable for extended periods at peak times. That's pretty awful.
There have also been two 3GB patches, so on top of the downtime, you've also got several hours of download. I'm not sure what the patches actually added, but nothing justifying a 6GB download.
I want to play this game, and on the occasions it's actually up, it is really good!
The game launches in 6 days. It will be a disaster.
