    Still, they need to add AFK kicking + a larger queue.

    No...things are not so simple or the issue would have been fixed with the flip of a switch.

    Don't be so naïve.

    The only fix is more capacity via new servers and bandwidth, which will happen next week.

    Running a macro to spam you into the game is only going to make things worse for everyone else.

    I'm offering a quality of life improvement, and you're trolling me about making it worse for everyone else?  As if better than 80% aren't already using something like this to login?

    Also, yes derp- I realise that they need more bandwidth/servers, but AFK kicking and the queue size are serious problems.

    In the interest of liberating the login weary, my word choice was admittedly a bit daft...but...talk about naïve!

    Servers will be fixed Tuesday (God, I sound like a broken record... MAYBE it's because 10000x special unique butterflies needed to post their OWN comments on their OWN threads because the 10 other ones on the RECENT list weren't good enough).

    I'm going back to playing now.  Have fun hitting 0 or whatever.

    I think he was refering to your larger queue and afk kicking comment. Not the easy mode fix for logging in. People keep saying larger queue's and auto kicking would fix things. It really wouldn't. It would be the same as using a bandaid on victim that has been stabbed, shot, and burned image

    Queuing people onto an already over crowded server just doesn't work. If your cap is say 3000. Sure you could queue people in pass that. But it create problems. As well as at a certain point the server will just simply crash or you will see alot of disconnects. I mean would you all really prefer those WoW style mega queue's only to get on play for 5 mins and have server boot you or just flat out crash? You have your 3000 cap but have 6000 people that want to play on their server. You simply can't just let them all on. You have to think about the gameplay quality for the people that can or are on. I know it's shitty for the other 3000 that can't but is it better for some people to be able to play. Or have a situation where no one can play? I know which one I'd pick.

    Auto kicking AFKer's. Doesn't do much either. There are ways around it, and those same people (the more serious ones) already have ways of assuring they automatically log back in.

    In Peace - Vigilance.
    In Death - Sacrifice.

    If they would just boot the afkers this problem would fix itself.  it makes no sense that you can remain logged in afk for weeks at a time.

    Doesn't matter much to me anymore. I'm not going to sub.

    Then get off the servers and let those that are going to sub play.  I personally have had no problem logging in but for those that cant i say GTFO.  Theres no reason for you to be playing if you dont plan on subbing.

    But if it really bothers you, ask for a refund (good luck with that) and don't play. (or come back after they say it's been addressed, only to find out that you have the same login issues again)

    For the people complaining, It is understandable. However, do not say that you can't get in. You can get in, you just don't want to take the time to do it.

    lol...

    Right, because spending 30-60 minutes spamming a login window, for the off chance that you'll "get lucky" is a completely reasonable thing to expect people to do. And shame to anyone who isn't insane enough to waste hours away over the course of several days doing it!

    Sorry, I tried that route - 5 days/evenings in a row. And I will say, quite bluntly: I could not get in. Period. End of discussion.

    The closest I got was a queue that lasted about 2 minutes, only to kick me with a "world is full" error as reward for my persistence.

    Other than that, I got into queue for various other spans of time, upwards of about 5 minutes, with the same result. And again, at those times, while I was getting the "queue -> world is full" routine, others were slipping right in. A few others on TS were having the same issue.

    It got to the point where we concluded (as in, the others getting in, those not getting in, and myself) that there must have been an issue regarding region or something, because it made no sense otherwise that I get "world is full", and then others are getting in as much as ~10 seconds later.

    The apologist attitudes of others over this issue - making excuses for it, insisting, like you, that "if you can't get in, then you're just not trying" and all this has only soured me on it even more, because it's just a crock. Even funnier how the people telling others to "stop complaining" or of "how it's not that difficult to log in", are often the same people who are staying AFK for hours on end, helping to make a bad situation even worse. Talk about hypocrisy.

    And, lest I be dismissed as "just some hater who spent $30 on the game and now is "acting all entitled" (another BS remark going around by some), I'm a 1.0 Legacy player. I bought the CE back then, played right up 'til they took the servers down. Hence, I was given ARR CE for "free" and didn't have to spend another dime to play it. Regardless, I was impressed enough by what Yoshi-P and co had done, that I wanted to show further support by spending an additional $90 on the PS3 CE. That's how much I was behind this game.

    The events since Open Beta, EA, and now launch, with SE's terrible response (apologies and vague promises of "improvements in the future" only go so far), and the absolute ugliness that's come out in many of ARR's community over it, when considered altogether, has really eroded my interest in the game.

    I'll likely still come back and try it again at some point, and hence will keep following it. But this rolling trainwreck of a launch, SE's insufficient response to it, and the abhorrent attitude of a large portion of the community has seriously killed off most of the excitement I once had about it.

    Dude, lighten up a bit. You come to every thread with the same BS. People are pissed, they have a right to be. Gratz on being able to get in and play.

    I dont see the logic.  If they pay by the minute then why bother staying logged in?  Wouldnt they save money by logging off?

    Mark my words - come wednesday, this problem is not going away.

    No he is not doing anything wrong,they KNEW of server issues from certain regions in last Beta and claimed they fixed them.However without another test how would they know,that is the part that pisses me off,you can't say it is fixed without testing it.

    I seriously don't know how there could be a problem unless it is as simple as some servers not working properly.

    If everyone lets them know,then there should be a statement by now on the situation at hand.

    Ok so i did a little research and i guess there is something happening as of Wednesday ...MAYBE lol.

    Apparently they have the new servers and are doing internal testing.If the testing is favorable they will do all worlds maintenance on Wednesday.However that also means if not favorable means no go for Wednesday.This still bothers me because Yoshi says "internal testing" that is no way shape or form mimics the REAL server load and i highly doubt he is that stupid and doesn't realize it.

    My gut feeling is this,the REAL truth is probably that they don't have more servers yet and are just buying time hoping they come in by Wednesday or they have some other plan in the works.He did mention something about transferring server loads to less populated ones,so maybe there really is not any new servers coming,just some new worlds by thinning out the free space.

    You know if I can say one thing it's this. Although I am annoyed as all hell that I cannot log in, I'm annoyed because from the amount of time I have been able to play, the game is fantastic! At least I have something to look forward too, most MMO launches for me are ruined by the crappy game they release. At least this time I have some hope that the servers will get fixed and there will be an awesome game waiting for me!

     

    TLDR;

    It's a damned good game with shitty server, which is a lot easier to fix than a damned bad game with perfect servers.
