“While we anticipated that there might be some initial issues at launch and have tried to set expectations accordingly, we still find it unacceptable that so many of you have not been able to properly enjoy 3.18. Please note that we have our hands full trying to resolve any remaining issues and get things running smoothly as quickly as possible. Although we have already seen improvements in many areas, there is still work to be done and the right people are working on it.”
