EA Very Satisfied With Star Wars: The Old Republic's Launch

In a brief phone interview with IndustryGamers, EA COO Peter Moore revealed that they "couldn't be more happy" about the way things have gone since Star Wars: The Old Republic launched on December 20th. Some of what he had to say:
(I was watching every hour of every day because a lot of the work we needed to do in Customer Experience reports directly to me even though BioWare handles its own customer service as you probably know. But look, there's a reason it's an MMO; it's a massive game and when I think of all the MMOs I have seen launched I can't think of one that has been launched flawlessly. There's so much you don't know and when you've got a million people coming in and playing, I'd like to be able to guarantee a completely flawless experience from a technology perspective, from an interaction perspective, but again I look at it every hour and when we look at the queue times to get on the servers, the amount of downtime that is scheduled, it's green lights all the way. I couldn't be more happy," Moore remarked.

He continued, "We're only three weeks in since the launch and we're stable, we're robust and adding people. It was a ramped phase-up, and we made sure for the people as they came in that they had a great experience. Was it perfect? No. Did anybody really expect something of this magnitude and complexity to be perfect? No, but the key is how you resolve those problems and move on quickly and I think our teams have done that well."
