Why have 10 servers at launch, it's a waste of money. A week from today, those servers won't ever be close to getting bombarded like they currently are. It only sucks now because the game just launch, give it a few days and this will be a distant memory.
Still a stupid system, but all the bitching about wait times is really pointless.
Or they could have built it so a server farm(10+) appears as one US server. Make it so you could add and remove servers without loss of data. When the demand dies a bit remove some servers and add them to the launch of the next big game.
