I hear the sharks are hungry.
In response to the troubles plaguing the European Open Beta last week, Paul Barnett (creative director for Warhammer Online) has promised/threatened that people will be fed to the sharks if anything messes up the European Launch. I'll just take the fact he isn't threatening the same if anything messes up the U.S. Launch as a vote of confidence.
He said: "That was one of those things where you go 'it's definitely going to work, everything on paper says it's going to work, oh my God it's melted!'. It's better that it happened in the sign up beta period than it happened live. What it did do was make a lot of humble pie, and a lot of knuckles got wrapped and a lot of people were told to make sure it never ever happens again. So thank the lords, the Lords of Chaos, that it didn't happen on live live, it only happened on pretend live."
He added: "Everyone's working really hard, and if it happens again we're going to feed people to sharks. Probably German sharks because they would be very efficient. We're very unhappy that it was bumpy. We're happy that we've punished people and tried really hard to do it better."
He does have a point about the German sharks being efficient...
