I was on this Saturday during the pre release, and my friends all assured me that "when the game is released they are opening up the amount of players that can join a server"
Now I have a queue three times larger than it was in pre release... 50 minute wait? How are you going to release without a character server switch option? How hard can it be to implement? Now I know you have to configure a web client to accept payment (if required) then move information from one database to another, but we went through a good beta phase... You would think SOMEONE would be at your morning meeting saying "We need a way for players to switch servers"
I hate the fact that I can find this forum, login, and rant during the time I am in the server queue. What makes me even more angry is the fact that my 5 friends are all playing on a lower population server now. Great- so I am waiting in the queue on a server they made me join, and here they are playing a different server... What a waste of time. I really do not want to start a new character on a new server.
