DC Universe Goes Free To Play or I Get To Be A Green Lantern Bitches

Posted on 12 November 2011 by DM

Early this month DC Universe made good on its promise to become a free to play game and as one would expect, there have been a few growing pains.  In this situation, it is hard to judge exactly how angry one should be for server sluggishness, long log in queues, and blatant bugs resulting in booting you from the game.  It is free after all.

What should we expect for none of our money? Also, should the people who are still paying money for a more…luxurious…game be upset?  I do not think anyone who considered playing DCUO did not figure that there would be some problems at the beginning.  It is an mmorpg and it is DC Comics; there are going to be a couple of people who want to try it out.  The question is how long will it take to recover from what is reportedly a 6000% increase in player population?

If what I have seen becomes a trend, I think things are going to work out fine.  The server seems to be moving towards stabilization and queues have eased in the last few days.  Time will tell though.  I will be doing a more thorough overview soon but I am curious about what others think in terms of what a player has a right to expect out of a free to play game.  Please write your comments below.
