... has already been won when half your US player population cannot log in? I do love you, Blizzard; but what kind of Mickey Mouse outfit allows that? It's been a very, very, very long time since you were a little independent struggling to get your product played.

Not that anyone would have had a chance at WF120 against a Method player, but your system/server failures for many of your players pretty much guaranteed many would not be given the opportunity to even fail at it.

Maybe want to put some thinkage on that - perhaps set a delay to any achievements until a period of five days past launch day (tossing a random figure out there). That gives *you* time to sort out issues and the players a chance to get access to the game to make an effort for those things.

Personally, I don't plan on hitting 120 for a while because I enjoy the game like a tourist. I'm speaking up because this circumstance is an unfairness which you created and which you could have avoided.

The actual tracking of "Realm Firsts" and "World Firsts" hasn't been ingrained in the game for some time, so it's not something we would maneuver around, OP.

While there have been some stability issues, we continue to work on smoothing those out as the hours pass, with a majority of realms looking stable as we head into the later hours. You'll have plenty of time from here on to get into the content of Battle for Azeroth.

As others have said, I recommend you focus on the journey, not the destination. Congrats to those who make it to 120 on day one, though!
