Someone suggested Gamigo was kicking players who had been on for long periods of time to alleviate the large queues in ArcheAge Unchained and I thought...not a bad idea.
It would not be difficult to monitor how long a player had been in game and once the time limit was reached kick them out and block the account from logging back in for X number of hours.
It could even be adjusted for amount of time spent in queue before getting in game, with more play granted to those who spent more time in queue.
As long as this was clearly stated up front that the publisher reserved the right to do so during times of extreme use and players had to deliberately agree to it (not buried in a TOS) I don't think this would cause any legal issues.
