Well, I'd say if you consider higher than expected player demand poor planning, then yes poor planning But they did say before it went live to manage your expectations and that it would take them time to get additional servers online. So I'd say they were not unaware this update would be a challenging one given how many players it is drawing back.I wonder if the new features of 3.18 are causing the login issues or if it's another case of poor planning.
I wouldn't say the new features have anything to do with it beyond high player load. Only one that could I think is PES. Players are going to drop stuff all over the place to see if it persist as expected and that will be a new kind of load on the servers. Should be anticipated, but it is new and how much load will it be on Live... with an unknown number of expected players? That would have been harder to estimate.
