I warned for this before the beta was released. The game is amazing but if too many fundamental parts of the game are fucked up, new people that join will freak out.
It is beta. But even when joining a beta one expects that some aspects of the game function. Like the tutorial. Like that there is not 3544454533 hovers on the landingpad in alioth. 🙂
I am an alpha tester and i love the game. I will stay. But how many of the new players will stay? Perhaps those that joined a good corporation in a place not too laggy. But the rest?
And the login issue is devastating for the game. Another game i played early access on, that allowed the use of alts, gave a free new account and character to all with tjis kind of gamebreaking account-problems.
The silence on these matters might scare away even old-timers. That have not been able to log in for perhaps 8 days and that have not received a proper message from the DU team yet.
