Yep, I got the impression that they weren't really ready for the beta. The servers were down a lot and they pushed out a patch during the beta.
Actually, that's normal behavior for the first open beta. In fact, that's the goal of open betas. The servers are being swamped for the very first time, they are bound to go down to the heavy load as the servers hit bottlenecks the devs had never anticipated. The systems team will be busy patching fixes for these bottlenecks over the week and you will find that the servers will get better and better at handling the workload with each open weekend.

Plus we know that Cryptic is a small team. If they are dividing their time or people between STO and Neverwinter...
Trust me, there is a totally separate dev team for Neverwinter. Neverwinter has a separate dev budget, enough for a full team. It would be totally insane to share a single dev team for the two games.
