We've added two new worlds to our North American server list: Ezi (NA) and Lucius (NA)! These servers were racked (physically installed) and imaged (updated with ArcheAge server software) in our Texas data center all in the past day. Here you can see Ezi and Lucius in their new home with Senior Systems Engineer Jonathan Johnson. (https://twitter.com/ArcheAge/status/513072894033657856) These two servers will be on the new Auction House cluster 5 (AH5). These new servers are now online and available to play right now: Friday September 19 at 4:15 PM PDT (GMT-7).

We also have new European servers en route to our Amsterdam data center, currently passing through international customs at this very moment. They're making their way to being live as quickly as possible. For more on this, please check out our Launch FAQ (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?52767-ArcheAge-Launch-Frequently-Asked-Questions-(Updated-9-19-at-1-00-PM-PDT))! Additionally, the NA servers Kyrios, Ollo, Salphira, and Aranzeb have been temporarily closed to new character creation.

NOTE: If your character slots are full, you will not be able to make a new character on the new servers until you log into one of them and either delete an existing character or purchase an additional character slot.

I'm just glad Trion is showing restraint with adding new servers. Open world housing = server mergers not possible later. And I DON'T want a dead server when half the population decides they don't like the game and go running back to whatever game of choice.

I'm just glad Trion is showing restraint with adding new servers. Open world housing = server mergers not possible later.

server merges would have to be done like this:

1) Pick two or three low pop servers.
2) Set up a new server.
3) Everyone on the 2-3 originating servers gets their houses & items mailed to them.
4) Merge originating server populations to destination server.
5) Land rush.
6) Healthy server population.

Done, thanks for coming out.

So is there going to be free server transfers? I can wait for the reply since i have only 2 hours in que and looks like i'll have another 2 to go.

GREAT...so let us patrons on it first then !!!! We cannot use it unless we wait in the now 3500 que first..buy a scroll..use it..then go there...cannot log into the new one..just tried...so we get screwed the hardest...again !!!

I WANT ON THAT SERVER NOW !!


Hilarious...if you have trouble logging in try logging into an existing character first...BRILLIANT !!
If we could do that dont you think we would be playing instead of sitting in que for the past 3 days...the FTP people are gonna have the advantage this time and not even cost them 100 bucks !!!

Lock it now and let patrons have first shot !!!

Alright, I will have to wait the 5+ hours and log into an existing character to be able to see the new servers. This seems rather ridiculous but at least they are adding servers. And to all the people complaining about too many servers being added; they can always combine low population servers once everything calms down.

I have 2 characters on Kyrios, but I bought the character slot scroll. I can create a 3rd character ON KYRIOS, but I cannot even select any other server now except for kyrios. How am I supposed to move servers if I cant even log on? I HAVE a third slot that i paid credits for, what do I need to do???

We don't need new servers at this point, we need the current servers to be upgraded to a higher CAPACITY.

So patrons who spent their time and money (literally) for the benefit of a head start can either stand in line for an hour or more just to play the game OR they can scrap ALL of their progress to start fresh. Niiiice.

Could you, if not possible, make it so we can see our characters without logging in an actual server and delete them so I don't need to wait in a 3k queue to delete my char and then go make one in one of the new servers, it could be really handy.

this is the fear of why people wait in queue and like it heavily populated. need to be able to transfer your character and not have to grind again specifically those like myself who have wasted the past week of there lives grinding

You guys have rarely screwed up here, most already have 2 slots on their over populated server and now they can't even log into the new servers. I don't know who is the ring master at trion but he should probably lose his job.

If you have maxed out your characters you cannot even log into the other servers, therefor you must delete some before going to the new servers.

And to all the people complaining about too many servers being added; they can always combine low population servers once everything calms down.

Server mergers are unrealistic unless servers are truly dead (like 100 people actively playing). Most MMOs that have done servers mergers in the past still had 200-300 active concurrent users on them, with 1500-2000 total population monthly access. A server merge with even low population servers in a game with open world housing would be disastrous with revoking a lot of land from people, and initiating a new land grab.

I don't currently own land as my patron status hasn't activated, but I am at least aware of how it would lead to many angry customers at a time when subscription retention is the most important.

Evilrayray
09-19-2014, 04:26 PM
This is worse than doing nothing at all !!! Those of use totally screwed by headstart with issues and had no chance to play much less land or anything else. THen have these ques all week only to be disconnected after waiting 5-6 hours to start over in the que now cannot take advantage of new server because the solution is " Log into an existing character first" then you can get to the clean fresh server that by then will be over run by those that land grab and FTP players without a character locked on another server...

I'n sorry but the solution is far worse a stick in the ♥♥♥ to us "patrons" who once again cannot get what we are paying for...

Tried to get on any server except the server I have characters on. Greyed out. I have 2 slots unused for sure, and I can not select a server other than the one I have characters on. Queue: 2K, not possible to log on to a toon, and log off.

Not so happy...

Additionally, the NA servers Kyrios, Ollo, and Salphira have been temporarily closed to new character creation.

Great, so my friend who couldn't get on at launch and start a character with me now can't play with me unless I start over. Why did I head start?

Fun game, but man you guys need to get your ♥♥♥♥ together. A server transfer is a required feature for an MMO at this point. How did you overlook it?

Atilla
09-19-2014, 04:28 PM
@trion @scapes new servers are all good and I will say needed but should be limited to patrons with some type of character copy / transfer. Or simply cap the FTP players. Who have nothing invested. Heck I would even start over if I could just reset my market coins and get an early head as a patron on a new server. I have some very nice land plots as well I would be leaving behind but those would become available now for someone else.

Just for everyone's consideration... brand new server means wide open lands for house placing. Not so good for someone who already has significant amounts of progress on current servers... great for someone who hasn't been able to get past level 15.

without an available slot? nope. You need to have an available slot before you can make a new character on the new servers.

Seeing as no one can GET to their current characters to delete them ( still 3200 waiting to get on Selphira), why doesn't Trion give folks a freebie character slot to create a toon on the new server?

Rhend
09-19-2014, 04:36 PM
Here's how you fix this in one to two ways....

Way #1.
Increase the capacity of the first 6 servers by 3k population

Way #2.
Step 1; Add more servers
Step 2; Ban F2P people from the 6 original servers
Step 3; Offer incentives to P2P players for moving, such as character transfers, decreased costs for items from the market place for the first month such.


Only these 2 paths will work out well. Which one looks easiest and more reasonable?


The Dev team HAD to see this coming. The 6 original servers had queues almost 24 hrs a day, and then the dev team thought it would be a good idea to open the game up to F2P players with only those 6 servers still!??? They either seen this situation coming and decided to blatantly push in everyone's backside, or, they were/are too daft to see what is right in front of them, which means they shouldn't be the ones running this game as they will ultimately run it into the ground.

EXACTLY !!! SO we get boned HARD again !!! After being disconnect 4 times in que today since 10 am...yes 10 am...I have to wait in que of now 3500 to get to my character to BUY a scroll or delete one and wait 24 hours..THEN go to new server with actual land and the benefits I paid for but have yet to be able to take advantage of....as I said before...for those who spent and will spend actual money ...the solution is a bigger stick in the ♥♥♥ than the problem ...

LOCK the new server to patrons that got screwed first...then let the FTP in tomorrow...problem solved and the forums will calm down !!!

Someone needs to lose their jobs over this. I've been in Queue for an hour and a half. Went from 3000+ to 2300. So I got 2 more hours, for Patron/Founder queue. I don't know what excuses you guys tell yourselves to justify such horrible hardware service to us, but you really need to be fired.

On a side note, grats to "Hey You Guys" for getting that Enza Cutter built a few days ago. Was awesome. (Ollo/Nuian)

Great. Now all I have to do is wait until my Queue finishes sometime tomorrow on the Salphira server. Then I get to wait another 24 hours for my character there to delete. By that time I'm sure both new servers will also be burgeoning with a 4k -5k long queue of there own. Maybe next weekend right?

I don't suppose there is anyway to get a little divine intervention from Trion here? Maybe someone there could delete one or both my characters off of my account, I would gladly delete both of them right now if it meant I get to play this weekened. Please, I beg for sanities sake, help me.

OR it could be that players who do not have characters yet roll over on the new servers and reduce queue on existing servers by a bit?

OR they give free accounts the ability to regain labor points while offline so a quarter the server isn't AFKing.
OR they offer transfers.

Don't get me wrong -- they're doing a good thing by introducing the new servers. However, they're thumbing their nose at the people who paid for a subscription and are now stuck in limbo by not offering some alternative to deleting an existing character (that a lot of us can't access because of the wait).

You do realize that you just pissed in the faces of all the people who invested in this game way before it was released and you gave the FTP base all the benefits......

Why? FTP can't own land so the brand new land grab is useless to them. This is also going to alleviate server queue stress on the original servers. Don't add servers and people ♥♥♥♥♥. Add servers and people ♥♥♥♥♥.

Instead of what appears to be milking people for money, the servers should have been available for the (f2p) launch. TRION knew how many packs were sold and the queue for the headstart shouldve been a clear indicator of what was going on.

Preventing new characters (starting now) from being made when the queue is already 3200+ is poor planning. Preventing new characters from being made and adding new servers shouldve been done much sooner.

The way this was handled is a slap in the face and just adds insult to injury.

No, we do not have the ability to execute server transfers right now.

Being able to offer character transfers should of existed before game when live. Server inbalance always happends on launch. This morning Kyrios at 7am cst at 2000 person Q. I check Aranzeb at the same time 130 people in Q. Char transfer should of been part of your ♥♥♥♥ hit the fan arsenal.

I appreciate the new servers, and i understand why your cautious but a transfer program should of existed and ready to go at launch. You all gotta fix the afk in game or select screen issue. implement a tempory until Qlines settle down pop box asking if they are still playing. Kickem out!

I realize that server transfers are not yet implemented but will we ever see them? For me it's not so much the game progress that's an issue but more the "you only get theses founder perks on your first character" that concerns me. That and without server transfers many players will stay where they are because of guilds. Many of these guilds are huge and would take a massive load off the old servers if they could transfer.

Also is there any chance of server cap increase? At the very least increase the patron cap so more paying players can jump on existing servers. I would recommend increasing the patron cap on servers or looking at your average queue for each server and increasing the caps by that much. Sure there will still be queues at peak times but it wont be hell-queue.

I love this game to death and i want to see it do well but the small server sizes for a game that is largely based around which guild has the numbers having nasty queues and small servers is horrid. I also see the issue of not wanting to have dead servers thus why you guys are being careful with adding new servers but increasing server cap would help immensely and server caps can be reduced when things cool down.

I have a character on Ollo and a Character on Kyrios. I paid for the $150 founder pack, I havent been able to get into either server since the 17th to even delete my characters. I was just in the queue for 5 hours tonight on Ollo but was still at about 1000th in line to get in. I need a refund. I paid for a product I have not received.

I concur wholeheartedly.

Thank you Trion for doing this conservatively and tastefully. So many MMORPGs have tried to solve a temporary problem (queues) which occur with every single MMORPG launch by rolling out too many servers. But I see that you are not rushing your decisions to roll out new servers and am confident us players won't have ghost towns in 3 weeks like has unfortunately happened with dozens of MMORPGs I've played after the first month.

To other people waiting in queue like I do: just move ArcheAge into another monitor. It does not use much of your video card while in queue. You can load up another game or play a video in your primary. And then the time will pass so quick you will be in-game before you know it. Example: http://i.imgur.com/jQoN2Sq.jpg

We've added two new worlds to our North American server list: Ezi (NA) and Lucius (NA)! These servers were racked (physically installed) and imaged (updated with ArcheAge server software) in our Texas data center all in the past day. Here you can see Ezi and Lucius in their new home with Senior Systems Engineer Jonathan Johnson. (https://twitter.com/ArcheAge/status/513072894033657856) These two servers will be on the new Auction House cluster 5 (AH5). These new servers are now online and available to play right now: Friday September 19 at 4:15 PM PDT (GMT-7).

We also have new European servers en route to our Amsterdam data center, currently passing through international customs at this very moment. They're making their way to being live as quickly as possible. For more on this, please check out our Launch FAQ (http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?52767-ArcheAge-Launch-Frequently-Asked-Questions-(Updated-9-19-at-1-00-PM-PDT))! Additionally, the NA servers Kyrios, Ollo, and Salphira have been temporarily closed to new character creation.

NOTE: If your character slots are full, you will not be able to make a new character on the new servers until you log into one of them and either delete an existing character or purchase an additional character slot.

Quitting my job helps me none, as I play this game at work, at night/the afternoon when the queue is extreme. Just one of those perks.

New servers are more likely to influx NEW players or Under leveled players (preferably guilds worth of them) to restart with a better average per played character. More servers should have been available from the start.

I QUIT! GIVE MY MONEY BACK i´ll play other game. Worst publisher thats i see in my life, more than 10 years that´s i play MMO´s all paid, and never see this MESS. Support with more than 120 hours to give one feedback, 12 hours in queue, CRAP! thx per F@#$$ one of most nice games thats i try play.

just google it or ask anyone. Servers were constantly crashing, queues, D/Cs, lag. yeah AA qeues suck but there have been no constant server crashing or major downtimes.

Your masking the fact that a half day queue is unacceptable.... A queue in a general sense on launch day in my experience is 1-2 hrs...... Not this ♥♥♥♥ storm....O and to touch on your ghost town comment. I think you and the gold sellers who remain will have a great time... Its a load of crap they knew how many people purchased the game, and still launched without enough servers... How many servers in the Korean or Russian versions?

Such a mishandled mess!

Protip: when you launch without enough hardware accommodate early adopters you fail.

Yes in Korea they have a bunch of servers, and they are also now having a low population crisis. This is what happens when too many servers are added to cave to a temporary problem. And because land is not instanced in ArcheAge and its up to XL Games to do so or not, it would be IMPOSSIBLE for Trion to merge an AA server without resetting everyone's land ownership.

any eta on old servers unlocking? first successful queue (10 hours this time, been trying since launch) and find out you can't make new characters. would have been nice to announce that a little more clear on server select. or if it was really only 4 hours ago maybe let the people that had already been waiting to create...create?
inb4 someone tells me i should have paid to play

The old servers that have a character restriction needed it a long time ago. Our queues are insane, there is nothing stopping F2P players before now. It's the only thing so far I've agreed with, a bit late but needed.

Seeing as how thats is pretty much exactly what happened during WoW's launch, + server crashes, long downtime and server being taken offline, i'd say they came out of it rather well.

I see all these people whining and crying for this and that. One of the main things being adding more capacity to the servers. Well they have done that but if they add too much more in a game where most things are not instanced then the completion of quests becomes even harder with soo many people trying to kill the same thing especially if it is one of the open world boss type things. Not only is there that issue but more people allowed in would cause excessive lag on the system. I would be all for increased capacity if this was sorta like wow and you have instances for the dungeons and raid areas but that is not the case.

Believe it or not, WoW's launch was worst. Why? get this: the servers were offline for weeks at a time (one period lasted 2 weeks). And yes they also had 2 hour ques.

So now I ask you, what would you rather have, a 2 hour que? or a 2 week period of servers being offline.


I'll take the 2 weeks offline if it fixes the issues we have now.

Wrong. Guild Wars 2, Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Secret World, Final Fantasy XIV, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Wildstar, all recent MMOs that were launched in the last 2 years, and ALL, I repeat, ALL of those games had the same problems that both WoW had 10 years ago, and that AA is having now. The only thing that I have seen that has been remedied after so many years is the issue WoW had with the servers being offline for 2 weeks. I havent seen that since then.

How about adding 2 or 3 new servers and offer transfers. I was going to post a pic but it won't let upload from my phone but anyway I tried to login 3288 in queue an hour later it was 2475 for several minutes so I tabbed out to find it had a popup saying login failure I hit ok and it closed the game. Loaded the game to find it saying server login lost and did it again and am now 3116 in line this was done an hour ago so now it's been 2.5 hours and not close. Come on and ole servers with transfer give founders a week to complete a free 1 transfer and if down the road a server is to Baden ppl can do a paid transfer. Or put my patron service on pause. And give my lack of head start compensation.

At the current Queue rates, honestly it wouldn't be bad to add some more. 36 Servers is going overboard, 25-ish in Korea is also kinda meh. But it should be safe with at least 12 from the start of launch, not this 3+ hours for Patrons and most F2P not even getting to create a chara before they have no more time.

a few more would be nice i agree seeing as even with the 2 new servers i tried to log on to Enla which i hadn't had a que of over 3k even as a F2P and it was 4100 so even my lesser populated server is now way over board in population. Maybe a nice round number of 10-12 servers woudl fix that but if it went any higher I am pretty sure that we would hit ghost towns in a month or 2

and.. the patron que is 2000 gg. This games really sketchy the way its set up, you cant have too many servers.. but how much is too much? You can't combine servers because of the land ownership, and people cant really change servers because they would have to give up their land and have none of it on whichever they switch to.

It looks like theres some kind of domino effect that will happen eventually killing the populations, like alot of people will become extreamly powerful giving casual/f2p no chance so they will quit, populations will drop so the serious players might quit then the server is empty and the people still trying to play on it have little to do so it dies out further.

WoW had 4+ hour queues at launch, and crash/DC bugs rampant for the first two months. Every expansion sees large 2+ hours queues on busy servers, and 15-20 minute queues during prime time even in the middle of an expansion.

GW2 used overflow servers, which is a technology you can't use with open world housing.

09-19-2014, 05:46 PM
Then you were lucky, but for most WoW's launch was MUCH worse then this.

I don't understand why people continue to use WoW's launch to defend the poor launches of other titles. WoW's launch was 10 years ago. First and foremost, technology has changed since then. Technology is more capable now. No one expected WoW to become what it was. MMO's weren't the giants they are today until WoW. WoW had no examples to learn from. Archeage does however. How many MMO's need to have a disaster at launch before any lessons are learned. To say that ALL MMO launches are a disaster is not defending the situation, it's simply proving that no one is learning from each other and doing a better job. Obviously the issues this game is having right now could have been avoided, and hopefully they will be corrected before the game loses it's steam entirely.

And doing this is a good way to ensure that the new servers won't end up ghost towns in a month like on the Korean servers where TWO servers are the only servers out of 25 that aren't ghost towns at 9PM Friday:

Adding more servers will in a way relief some of the cap issues with current servers (in the sense that brand new players will simply start on the new servers instead of waiting to join an existing one - To a certain extent!!) However, us players who have been playing on the first set of servers are not going to move to a new server. Isn't this easy to understand? Why would we want to start new when we are set up with our guilds and friends?? Add more servers, sure, but also increase the capacity of the existing servers. I haven't been following every single Trion post, so I don't know if they plan to do this - but it must be done. You want to keep your new customers happy by allowing them to get into the game quickly, but you can't forget about the trailblazers that have supported you since the beginning.

HOW?:

Server restarts - once every 2 hours or so. At least this way people who are actually playing can reconnect with a lower queue, those taking up space being afk can suck it.

DISCONNECTS DURING QUEUE:

Give those disconnected during the queue back their queue position - this has happened to me once a day where I queue at lunch break, expecting to play after work only to see my queue is stuck at 2k and I have to restart.

I am just ♥♥♥♥♥ing about wasting another 7-8 hours trying to log in and create at least one damn toon. Now I will have to wait until the lock out is lifted.

That would be contrary to a sandbox MMORPG. Sandbox means freedom including the freedom to engage in laissez-faire free enterprise.

You're a dunce. Explain how preventing 1 plot per account is against sandbox rpgs? Please direct me to the rules of what a sandbox must abide by and be. By your logic i should be able to attack anyone anywhere because freedom and all but guess what, you cant.

Please, see yourself out.

This all comes down to Trion not being prepared for a real launch. They've had alpha and beta tests - they saw the queue times in that. Why in the world would they think 6 servers could accommodate all the players coming in? They did not address the queue issue from prelaunch, and are now starting to address it. However, as a business it's a giant mistake trying to play catch up when they had the data beforehand to prevent this.

Logic dictates that if there are queues PRE LAUNCH for the people that BOUGHT FOUNDER PACKS, there is going to be an even more ridiculous queue once the game goes live with F2P. The fact that they didnt provide more servers before launch or even attempt to acknowledge the the fact that the current servers were full should speak volumes.

We want the name and contact information for the individual or specific group of individuals who are actually addressing this issue. Who the hell has 6 hours of free time a day to sit in a queue and still play the game were paying for? Everyone I know is having their logins start as early as possible and having to just go do other things and HOPE to login to see everyone and do something entertaining. This is seriously disgusting. We have jobs (unfortunately you do too) and families, among other responsibilities. This is like E-Highway Robbery.

You CAN attack anyone anywhere after level 30 zones, that is why there are infamy points and a prison in-game... You can kill your own faction.

Unless you are comparing real life to a video game... I won't even dignify that with a response.

Go to Solzreed, Dewstone Plains, Lilyhutt Hills, Gwen Forest and attack a same faction player. Right now. I want to see it on YouTube, since I can't get in to see it myself.

No you cannot attack anyone anywhere, there are pve zones where you cannot attack a person of your same faction. Did you even play the game?

Exactly, and this is somewhat disappointing considering Archeage is NOT Trion's first MMO. Even if it was, they have plenty of examples of other high demand MMOs that had capacity issues. Still they have failed to address the cap issues on existing servers, by adding more servers they are only fixing half the problem - Trion has to realize that players who are already playing on their current servers do not want to leave and start new on a fresh server. This is a GOOD thing for Trion if they take advantage of it. Keep current players happy = current players keep playing. Adding new servers makes us current players feel forgotten. At this rate we'll see 25 servers by October 30th, with most of them being ghost towns.

I cannot join any server except the server I have characters on. The rest of the servers have their connect button greyed out, double clicking does nothing either. I have 2 characters made, I used 2 open character slots yesterday; so 2 open slots. Why am I forced to play on a server that I no longer want to play on? Also it is a 2000+ character que. I am a founder/patron.

If they add too many servers, like happened with the Republic of Korea ArcheAge, then instead of dozens and dozens of threads complaining about queues, those same people will likely complain about their servers being dead and demand the impossible: that Trion merge the servers (impossible because of land ownership in a non-instanced game).

I'm happy for this, but I'm still in a 4.5 hr queue. I just had 2 patron friends say they quit for good too. It's been 1 week since head start guys, this should have released with this many servers and locked character creation a loong time ago.

I still have 1400 people in front of me after 4.5 hrs. I started with 2800. That means, if the queue stays the same speed, the total queue will be nearly 9 hours for a paying patron...

Wrz is absolutely a Trion employee or one of the most worthless Trolls ever. Either way I have, as have others, asked if he loves the game so much and has such little problems compared to the rest of us why does he have 577 posts (all promoting Trion and Archeage the Queue movie) instead of spending that time playing. Maybe he is one of those rare people that loves to give away his money and time because he has too much of it. I have begged, again not alone, for him to please leave the forums as no one has the patience for a mindless drone fanboy right now. Hey Trion since you can't make it so those of us who Alpha and Beta tested for you actually get to play the game can you put a feature on the forums so we can block certain users, just like in game (I think, its been so long since I got in), then our patience wouldn't be tried further. Pretty please?

How about adding 2 or 3 new servers and offer transfers. I was going to post a pic but it won't let upload from my phone but anyway I tried to login 3288 in queue an hour later it was 2475 for several minutes so I tabbed out to find it had a popup saying login failure I hit ok and it closed the game. Loaded the game to find it saying server login lost and did it again and am now 3116 in line this was done an hour ago so now it's been 2.5 hours and not close. Come on and ole servers with transfer give founders a week to complete a free 1 transfer and if down the road a server is to Baden ppl can do a paid transfer. Or put my patron service on pause. And give my lack of head start compensation. 12:31 was the time stamp for the quoted post am now 2207 in line. Complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Not playable when I have to wait so long. If the pace holds including the first q I will have been in line for 8 hours. ♥♥♥♥ this ♥♥♥♥. You need to find a solution. Pause patron status or add servers with free founder transfer and figure out something for compensation. I expect a q but to be reasonable you can not call this reasonible.

Well, I was going to be miffed about zero notice of new servers being added on the Glyph client (seriously, why even have notices there if you're not going to update them with new news? Ontop of that, the updates section doesn't even have all the damned news updates!), then saw they both have a queue.

Back to waiting for another one or two..

Not like I can actually make a new character, because 2 char slots is absolutely ludcrious (6 max, seriously?), and deleting one is impossible with a 4,000+ queue unless I leave the game up in the background and check it every 20 minutes.

I bought a third character slot earlier today and this evening I tried to connect to Ezi to create a new character and it will not let me. I have two characters on Tahyang but this third slot should be open to create on this new server. WTH?

A little more of a heads up next time you lock down a server Trion. I have been waiting for 7 hours to create a toon and now I read it has been for nothing.

One of my friends decided to download and try this out. Told him HE MUST make a character on the same server as me. He's been waiting for 7+hours aswell and I just had to tell him to cancel it because he wont be able to make a character..ugh..

2 new Server will not cut it, increasing the SIZE should be the next thing to look at.
I have to join smalled queue to be able to play for my 1st time on the new EZI server.

Unfortunately all my guild is in Aranzeb, dozens of my friends I chat with all on Aranzeb, now I cannot play with them cuase the Queue is over 3 thousand people for the server with my guild.

This is the 1st time I can actually play the game, not with my guild, how is this reasonable?
