This is not my idea, nor do I endorse it - not sure about the amount of troll it contains - but two others on the official forums commented on this individual's blog post saying they got in as well.

User blogged:

"A way to get in.
All you do is just afk at your character screen for like 20-30min or so maybe even shorter, just before you log into the game screen, where you see your character. Thats what i did and then Queue will come up after that, DO NOT THOUCH QUEUE, It would automatic login you in hopefully! Try it and i hope it work for you guys and if your done for the night please log off but me imma AFK :P This is an second post to inform you guys, Please if it work share and tell others but do not lag me out :P I pity you guys :P"

Comments in the blog:

"Got the queue to come up at least!"

"I think you just got lucky."

Blogger replied: "You guys got nothing to lose anyways, your still trying to login in why not try it :P imma go play don't bother me!! if only i stop pitying you guys"

"does bring up the queue, but still do net let us in, thanks for the find though, was worth the try."

"I went and made a BLT and suddenly I was in game so this seems to work, or at least i was lucky too. I give bacon all the credit"

"and I'm in! :D Thanks for the tip!"

94% sure is troll - but better then being trolled by the delivery moogle over and over again I suppose?

I'll be verifying this in 5 mins! It will have been 30 mins since my last login attempt.

Okay, once again I am not endorsing this.

I went afk, did laundry, etc.

Came back, I'm 642 in queue after trying to log in.

HOWEVER:

It also seems my world may have crashed prior to this although I see no announcement about it.

edit: Went to actual log in, then error 90k.

I've been trying this all day to avoid the opening movie. It does not work.

I doubt there's any merit to this. I got into the queue too after trying dozens of times, and restarting the client etc. The thing that puzzled me is the last time it finally let me in the queue, there were only 6 players ahead of me...

Probably just a clever way to get less people making login attempts, increasing the poster's chances. :D

Yeah, probably a troll and replied to their own thread maybe? Oh well.

just got in!
like the guy says:

wait about 10-20 minutes, then hit your character's name. if your lucky, a queue will come up. I had only 23 people in front of me, and it took about a minute to get me in!

I got a world could not be reached server error while on a 24 person wait time. Think the error code was 1014?

Can't get the NA/EU server to even come up anymore. Where is news of this maintenance? If this doesn't work, I am tempted to try a Japanese server just to mess around in for awhile. Might be fun.

Ah alright. Well I think this was the same hour as last time so I'm guessing it comes back up 3 AM PDT or something? Maybe a nice nap is in order. It feels like the only real times to play is during the early morning hours of 5 AM to about 10 PM EST.

My 'workaround' claim that I have been finding relatively successful....

Golf (or some other outdoor activity) + watch football (or another form of entertainment depending on circumstance or individual) + make good food w an addition of social interaction + drink beer and wine... I have found doing these things, order I am still working on, and then attempting to log has worked for me. I think I have got around 10-12 hours of playtime via this method (no joke). Its not 100% tho, so you might have to repeat the process a few times and try logging again...

I will post my final result on the 27th during launch. Hope I could help in anyway. See you in-game :)
