In EA's case, they grossly underestimated both capacity at launch and the performance of the backend database servers. They've fixed a bunch of problems with the performance side and have just about doubled the number of servers to handle the high load.

In my huimble opinion, they should have had three times the number of servers up and running on day one and then fixed the performance issues. It would have been a better launch and they could have retired servers as the problems with the code were worked out.
