Yep, the demo's still plagued by connectivity issues and load screens that simply never end, forcing you to quit out of the application and try again. It goes without saying that potential players across the web aren't exactly happy, and at this point, it's fair to dub the demo a mess.
In hindsight, calling it a 'VIP Demo' was probably a bad move. It's a name that's conjured expectations of an actual demo -- something that actually works -- when it reality, this is a beta with obvious technical issues that need ironed out.
Let's just hope that the game's launch next month goes a lot smoother than this.
