I was surprised to discover all of these bug reports on the forums. Not because it is unusual to have bugs during launch of a game but they are not reflective of the gameplay that I have experienced so far. I started at 3 a.m. on Friday with four friends and the $100 pre-release and have been happy with how polished the general game-play seems to be. I have over 30 assigned workers now and am level 51 with my main.
In the past, I have dropped 100's of dollars on pre-releases to get early access only to be met with horribly buggy gameplay and sometimes unplayable games.This has resulted in drastically lowered expectations for games I purchase. So when I encounter a game that has some polished gameplay and I can glean some actual joy from playing the game, I tend to ignore any of the less desirable aspects of the release.
Kudos to Jamie Foxx for holding game companies to a higher standard. If I order a Pizza from a Pizza Shop I should probably be upset if they deliver me a box of crumbs. Unfortunately, I am now the type of person who would eat the crumbs, not complain, and just be happy I didn't starve. I am speaking metaphorically about the games, of course.
On a positive note, since i have played the game, the servers have had GMs and CMs in game answering questions and addressing concerns. They have added double the amount of servers since launch. They are giving the impression that they are attempting to address the bugs as they come in.
