Server Que's allready?????

Phaleg31Phaleg31 Main, CAPosts: 32Member

A bit of advice............

 

Since there are only so many servers at launch, YOU WILL HAVE Que's to get into the server to play.

 

IF YOU START COMPLAINING AND CRYING ON THE FORUMS FORCING THEM TO OPEN NEW SERVERS, IN 2/3 MONTHS TIME, MANY SERVERS WILL BE A BARREN WASTELAND......

 

This happens with every MMO every time. People start complaining because they can't access the game immediately, start posting in the forums, the dev starts taking measures and BOOM, 3 months later, people are crying about servers with no population...

 

 

You have been warned....:)

    well overflows don't help the WvWvW only types... luckily I'm not one of those types though:)

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    The only 'queue' that will occur is during initial signup...and really you won't queue you just won't be able to sign in.  If the server population has been reached, and you haven't been able to login yet, it will tell you that and then you will have to decide to roll on another server. 

    For the first few weeks or more there will NOT be a fee for changing home servers. So if you fail to get on the original server of choice, you will be able to choose another server, and keep trying to get into your original server choice with no charge to you for changing back.  This is a limited time offer, but a good one to keep in mind.

    DIdn't they wipe before that though?  I know one of the BWEs I had to select a totally new home server, because they wiped before it.   In which case, you didn't have a home server anymore until you selected one, and you couldn't select one if it was already full.

    Yeah, I think that's exactly what happened. I guess it is different. Server queues would assume you had already picked a server and it won't let you in. This says that you can't pick certain home servers because they are full. It could potentially be a worse problem for people that have to get on the same home server with their guild, no?

    Definitely, although it really only matters for WvW, you can join guilds on other servers and guest to play with them for anythiing else. Undoubtedly some guilds will have to choose between changing servers or leaving some members out in the cold as servers lock. Fortunately they have indicated server changes will be free at first for high pop servers as they open new ones.

    Well you never know guys the overflow could mess up, alwasy good to take the warning though.

    I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

    I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

    Ok, so technically even with "overflow servers" there is a finite number of connections possible

    ie: The 'overflow servers' can "fill".

    Therefore it is possible to have ques is it not?

    I guess that's the reason why they reduced the number of server and increased the number of players per server

    It's doubtful they can even fill given that they are capping home server populations.

    the overflow servers have overflow server which have overflow server

    A MMO is like life. It is something to cherish and enjoy upon in it journey. So why race to the end of it. In life at the end you die.
