The Daily Grind: What MMO delay has annoyed you the most?

And again.

Sometimes things get delayed. It happens. It’s generally not a desired outcome by any of the people making an MMO, but you just need to make the game go through a bit more iteration or refinement before players get their hands on it. Or you’ve found a couple of horrible bugs that will absolutely crash the game and you need to make things wait a little longer so no one ever experiences them in actual play; one or the other. The important thing is that delays are not personal.

But they sure can feel personal, huh?

We’ve all had games or updates we were looking forward to and making plans around only to have a delay announced late, thereby forcing you to rearrange time off if possible and generally throwing off your schedule. Or it just means waiting longer for a thing that you really want to experience sooner rather than later. So what MMO delay has annoyed you the most out of the various ones you’ve had to deal with?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
