Blizzard Extends Free Trial

Ordinn posted on the official forums that they are going to extend the free trial people to make up for the problems they have been having. Here's the text of the post: Since its release two and a half days ago, World of Warcraft has already seen incredible concurrency numbers across all active game servers. To keep up with the demand from our players, 47 new servers were made available, increasing the total number of servers to 88. Doubling our server capacity in such a short period of time created issues in existing servers. We immediately recognized the issues and began implementing fixes. However, some players were unable to log in and enjoy the game during this period. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and are dedicated to providing World of Warcraft players with the best play experience possible. Therefore we'll be adding a small trial-period extension for players who created accounts before or during the downtime. In the days ahead, we'll provide additional details on how the trial-period extension will be determined. As always, we appreciate your continued patience and support; we're still monitoring the servers very closely and making adjustments as needed in order to ensure that World of Warcraft continues to run smoothly for everyone playing.

I bet SOE wouldn't have been so in-tuned with their player base. Thanks, Blizzard!
There are four boxes to be used in the defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, ammo. Use in that order.

Well to be fair, SOE gave everyone an extra free month when EQ launched because they had similar login problems as WoW is experiencing.
