I understand people want to play and are upset, but I totally expect this kind of crap to be happening for atleast a week or two *after* release. That is not a consolation, it's just how it is. Speak with your wallet at the end of the month, I'm hoping the game does well.

I'm really not as forgiving considering I've been through it for 3 years now. I just want to play the **** game I paid for. Yes its launch, but honestly they screwed up by having such a short and small phase 4. Which failed miserably by the way. They needed more time and instead just ******** over the user base once again. They keep ruining the franchise.

Want an educated guess?

How strained do you think the lobby server is right now with every NA/EU player simultaneously trying to get through the server limits every 2 seconds?

I actually don't expect it to happen this way for the next week or two. Maybe it will, but that's below par for a AAA MMO these days.

I'm sure they want to get things fixed ASAP, so it's fairly pointless to rage and call names, but so far they've dropped the ball with the duty finder/instance server issues. It's too important a gameplay issue, and the servers have been down too much without any solution, to just pretend it's MMO launch as usual.

Limiting access (since they obviously won't improve hardware to satisfy demand - lest they be left with a lot of unused capacity after the game launches) is an acceptable short-term solution. Removing the queues, however, is not. It's not our responsibility to either a) try to brute force our way into the game or b) do something else until access is available. It is their responsibility to provide access to the game within the given time-frame at our convenience. They work for us, not the other way around.

Phase 4 was a complete failure and so is the launch. It's just ruining the game. They should of held off another month, bought more servers and actually made sure they could handle launch time load. They totally dropped the ball and totally failed. I don't understand how they allow this to happen. ESPECIALLY after everything that happened with 1.0. I'm starting to think this company will never learn anything new...

Yes, it sucks. No one will disagree with you there. Has it tarnished the shiny hopes that everyone had for launch? Yes. Is it also limited to one aspect of the game that's giving us all so much hassle? Yes. Outside of this one, specific area of trouble, is the game pretty darn good? Yes.

I'm sure they will provide some form of recompense once it's been discussed with the powers-that-be, and they have continually apologized in several ways. They also have been working around-the-clock to solve the problem, and informing us about it. There's not much point in getting mad about it until we see what the final fall-out is, but the damage will be greater to their wallet than yours, which is unfortunate for all of the hard work they put into ARR. They want it fixed far more than you do, for their own sake, and nothing is more of a motivator than self-preservation.

That's entirely too long. They realistically have 48-72 hours after launching their product (which is what they did on Saturday, make no mistake) to get their ducks in a row and still claim "launch issues."

They didn't do stress testing, they grossly misproportioned their server hardware. Welcome to the result.

Limiting access by not letting servers load for us? Thats a really odd way to do it. I'm not totally convinced its intentional.

They are limiting the amount of people who can access the servers at the moment. This does nothing to fix the instance problem, because sure it may be working for them now, but when everyone can play it will destroy the servers very quick.

OK SE Enough is enough. I am not really surprised that we are running into overload. Everytime WOW got a major patch my friends and I would bounce over to Oceanic and found some server we could play on until things calmed down. Didn't cost anything to make another toon. Yet now the stupid lobby server is dumping me and I can't go anywhere. Come on SE. You could have anticipated the overload and had everything set up and tested. I really think you need to have someone who knows what they are doing run the servers.

People misunderstand what the queuing actually was.

It wasn't a server population queue, it was a log in queue. Too many people were logging in simultaneously so they slowed it down using the queue.

Supreme Court said that's OK now. God still says no, but people stopped listening to him a while ago.

Also, I left my world tab open and waited for it to update when I went to do dishes, and when space opened up, all the NA/EU servers were on it. You don't have to log in/out all the time, you can just keep it open and glance over every so often. Servers seem fine, so hopefully whatever they're looking for will be hard to miss.
