Fixes, fixes and more fixes.
Planetside 2 is one of the year’s most anticipated Free 2 Play MMO. It was launched a few days ago (with awesome screenshots and videos) and apparently it is already proving to be a massive hit for Sony Online Entertainment. The servers are being melted and the developers are working to get new ones installed.
First off they will be opening new worlds for the EU region. They have currently installed 5 new worlds, John Smedley, President, Sony Online Entertainment confirmed via his tweeter account.
we are opening yet another server in Europe. Will be 4 total now. We have more 🙂— John Smedley (@j_smedley) November 21, 2012

This should be good news for players who can’t wait to play Planetside 2. The developers have also fixed an issue where any player outside of North America had his/her Planetside 2 crashed at the game’s launchpad. This was apparently SOE’s fault according to John Smedley.
Prosieben players - if you were crashing at the launchpad it's fixed now. That was SOE's fault. sorry. We fixed it.— John Smedley (@j_smedley) November 21, 2012
A lot of Australian players were also facing issues but a fix is on it’s way. “Australian players we apologize for the service issues. We are working with our network provider to put in a final fix,” he tweeted.
