    "Great, if very unstable, game"

    July 30, 2007  |   By bedeboop

    Pros

    Constant crashing, constant lag, every week, wednesday usually being the day of choice, there are updates to the software. Downtime for this is usually from 7am to 12am PST. Game is having problems right now, visit secondlife.com, click on blog tab and read. Inventory fluctuates on a "as logged in" basis, losing or gaining anywhere from 1 - 2000 items each time. If you can't find it this time you might if you logout and come back on. Lag....the more people on the less you can move around, anywhere, even if you teleport to a "low lag" sim. Linden Labs seems more intent on providing updates before correcting earlier or already existing problems. Or, old errors that were "fixed" appear again after an update.

    Cons

    It is a very sophisticated game, I love it and I am addicted to playing, but as of last night I am NO LONGER A PAYING MEMBER. Tired of it. When it runs better and this means without crashing and constant downtime, will become a paying member again.
