DCUO was dying and needed this or else they would've shut the game down.

Saw this mentioned at Blue's:
http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/11/03/dc-universe-online-sees-120000-new-pc-players-less-than-48-hours-after-going-free-to-play/
Quote
John Smedley, SOE’s President, announced on Twitter this morning that over 120,000 new players have signed up for their action-RPG MMO DC Universe Online on the PC since the game transitioned to free-to-play Tuesday evening. In the same tweet, he announced that the number of concurrent users logged into the game has increased 300% in that same time, and that they’re planning to launch a massive TV and online ad campaign later this month. He did not mention any numbers for PS3 users.

Of course it’s not all daisies and roses for players trying to get into the game during this massive spike in activity. Even during non-peak hours, servers are having stability issues and, anecdotally, login queues have thousands of players waiting to get in and play. SOE loves to boast about DCUO’s “super servers” that allow all players to all play on the same realm within the game, which has a lot of awesome benefits (like never having to pay to transfer servers and always being able to play with your friends who are online), but hopefully they can resolve these stability issues before too many people run away from the game because of them.
Saw a pal from my old City of Heroes SG on Steam was playing this, or trying to. He said the servers were crashing like crazy and he couldn't log in.

Sounds like a typical MMO launch to me.  Roll Eyes

Champions Online has these 'super servers' as well (along with a charactername@accountname naming system so you can have duplicate names) and I haven't heard of their servers ever blowing up as badly as DCUO's servers have.

From what I've heard from friends, DCUO has been down more than it has been up since they went F2P.

yeah while the servers were okay Thursday night the last time i was on,the Servers tonight(Saturday Night)were very laggy,i quit after 5 minutes


there were people arguing also on the chatbox thing,one guy blaming all the 'Cheap F2P Asses' and another shouting back at him that he 'wouldn't pay to play this poo'

FWIW though i am enjoying it,,soloing, when the servers are working,currently level 8...looking forward to upgrading my flight come level 10

Yeah, I am having fun with the f2p as I couldn't see myself paying a monthly fee.  Thinking about picking up the Green Lantern pack

Anyone playing this on the PS3? Just started a few days ago and having fun. Haven't experienced any lag there. Would be fun to join or create a league though.

Just downloaded the f2p and started this morning. I don't play many pc games, or mmo's either. I spent a few weeks in city of heroes back in the day, and a few days of rift, and that is the extent of my experience.

I enjoyed the hour I played this morning though. Maybe I'll stick with this as a change of pace from cod for a little bit.

The Flash DLC announced

Quote
A second DLC expansion for superhero MMO DC Universe Online goes live later this year, Sony Online Entertainment has announced.

Titled Lightning Strikes, the pack adds Electricity Powers - the game's eighth power set - and a new adventure starring The Flash.

There's also a new Central City map, new gear and new characters, including Livewire, Black Lightning, The Top, The Trickster and Static.

The add-on is free to Legendary members but will cost Premium and Free players $9.99.

"In this DLC pack, fans have the opportunity to immerse themselves in another great character and action-packed story from the DC Universe," commented creative director Jens Andersen.

"With exciting gameplay, a new power set and new locations to share with your friends, we packed a whole new kind of fun into this DLC pack and are eager for our players to dive into another legendary adventure."

Free Cape for everyone  Roll Eyes


to celebrate DCU 1 year anniversary

Quote
Since launch the game has had 1.8 million registered players on PC and over 2.3 million on PS3. Those players made over 3.5 million in-game Heroes, and over 2 million Villain characters. All told, this impressively sized population of players and characters accounted for 3.6 million days of in-game playtime.

In addition to a robust population, SOE has also been hard at work fleshing out the in-game world, adding 200 new quests, 15 new zones, and 1,800 new encounters post-launch, and rolling out updates that included the villains like Ra's al Ghul, locations like the Fortress of Solitude, and new power sets from characters like The Flash and Green Lantern.

As a thank you to its players, DCUO is gifting in-game characters with a special cape with the number "1" inscribed on its back to all characters created before today, January 11th.


I still play now and then,and i am still planning on buying the DLC one day

decided to possibly check this out again on the PC since it's free to play, and all I have to say is Council of Luthors/Batmen? WTF?

You'll have to understand the timeline in order to see why this is happening. Actually, just watch the trailer for an idea.
