Why did you call this game "Archeage"? I think it's more appropriate to call it "Queue Game". Are you going to increase the capacity of these damn server? Or are you just hoping that half the players lose patience and stop playing?

They need to temporarily lock character creation.
I have committed to the server now after 5 days and a boatload of credits spent on 1 character.
The queues have been stupid from the start but I have just about managed to deal with them after making the decision to stick it out for the long haul.

Having 1 hour queues on Wednesday lunchtime is mental though.

If they don't lock Kyprosa for a while more and more of the FTP folks will become invested in the server, because after you queue for 2 hours the time invested actually playing becomes valuable.

If they don't lock it soon the prime time average will be 4 hour+ queues.

If any of the guilds* agree it might be worth them making a joint request in general. More effective than my lone voice yelping into the hurricane of woe that is the general forum.


*I will join a guild at some point, I just prefer to get my main settled in solo just a personal quirk.

Its a Double edged sword though,

I want new players to come here and grow the server but I also don't like queueing for things...which is why I love online shopping..anyway.

This is nothing after experiencing the Final Fantasy 14 relaunch last year, no que visualisation to let you know where you are and a instant DC when you get into the game. Took two weeks before I can play.

My point is, these things take time and with a super hyped game like ArcheAge you have to expect this, with no pay barrier everyone and their sisters will be wanting to try out ArcheAge for at least a couple of days.

But if FTP players do come and settle in on a server I want it to be my server, get a good community going and become the sustained number 1 server! (So we don't have to go through a merge later and I lose my house)

I completely agree with you. A busy and full server is a good server. Patron/FTP mix is perfect it makes the economy exciting.

But.


The queue is over an hour on a Wednesday lunchtime. This is Bonkers, and yes that is Bonkers with a capital B.

While you wait (kicked twice from queue huzzah).

Is worth a look, they got the Patron prices wrong for EU. In a bad way.

Asenko
09-17-2014, 06:36 AM
I really hate when companies just translate the American price directly to EU price.

I.E Just changing the currency symbol instead of translating the price.

So 15 Dollars = 15 Euros...

Nah, the thing is its meant to be same price as Rift 8.99 but is in fact 10.99.

On topic.

New bug. queue freezes up. best I got was at 40.
Waited with it static for an age eventually bit bullet and used try another server button.
Network connection lost pop up. Client shuts down.
3 hours queueing on a Wednesday afternoon.

Seriously, I don't understand you people... This game is completely fresh and TONS of people have been waiting for this game for so long! You act like you're surprised that there are queues, LOL. I personally like the fact that this game has got so big audience at the very beginning and it'll be a real challenge for developers to deal with such big community. I'm sure that Trion will find a way to solve this "time-in-queue problem" and it'll happen really soon. So stop crying for all the queues, 'cause that looks so immature from your side :) Especially F2P ones. Cheers!

Just because someone "cries" about a queue doesn't mean they don't also appreciate how popular ArcheAge is, for one back in Feb when we had no idea if ArcheAge would ever come out in the west with Trion saying nothing I would have never dreamed that it would be released now and be as popular as it is after years of waiting and no guarantee it would have so much hype! Its Great!

But I still don't like waiting in 4 hour queues...its not hard to separate the two.

hahahaha, you people complain about a 1 hour queue...I have clan members that haven been 5 and 6 hours in queue without entering. Trion, if you're going to launcha "f2p" (alias p2w) game, at least make sure THE SERVERS CAN HANDLE THE EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE.

1 hour que guess i'll just come back in a week or two when the population dies down a bit, and FYI for the poster above not everyone wants to sit and wait for 5 hours plus to play a game most(like me) will go play another game which in the end loses trion money

4:30pm yesterday I logged on, finally got in game at 9:20pm. As a patron I think this is ridiculous. Was going down at a solid 8 characters per minute which is stupid. Overall it's not being taken seriously and Trion don't care.

Never got the chance, the game froze another couple of times. So I'll just wait another day or so to queue.
Maybe i should wake up at like 5am to queue and go to bed ;>

After the Defiance launch, Trion should have learned their lesson. But this is infinitely worse lol. 3 hrs in queue and connection to server lost, back to the end of the queue for me. This is like a Post Office on pension day simulator
