You do realize that one year later there have been MAJOR changes to the game, right? Such as server mergers and a transition to F2P? These things all effect server populations.
Now the game is growing again so BioWare is probably a bit surprised that there seems to be another surge of playing going on. Hopefully they will address this soon, but to act like it's totally unacceptable is a bit near-sided.
I also maintain it's a sign of a healthy game.
Blah blah blah...healthy game this and healthy game that.
Who cares how healthy it is if paid subscribers cannot play it.
I have now been waiting for over an hour in a server queue. This is utterly unacceptable.
F2Ps should be kicked off the server if it gets full. They have no right being there when subscribers are trying to log on. It was US who kept the game ticking over when servers were a ghost town.
