Until you guys tell us that keeping queues is NOT an option, I will continue to tell everyone to avoid this game and leave my game box unopened. I have a 60 day return policy on it, and I am giving you 6 weeks to upgrade your servers like you are SUPPOSED to do or the game is going back to the store.

The very idea you guys have told people to reroll on a lower pop server 4 days after allowing them in is just plain outrageous and to hear now that you may keep queues if it means its the only way to keep things "managable" is another OUTRAGEOUS thing to hear from a company producing an MMORPG.

Its a sad state of things when I personally know 16 people that are talking about either not even opening their boxes and returning them or never subscribing after the free month a DAY BEFORE THE GAME IS RELEASED because of your statements about handling queues...

QUEUES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE AND MANAGABLE. Its one thing to have them at the start because your hardware cannot handle the loads...its ANOTHER thing if you are not willing to increase load capacity to meet your CUSTOMERS needs.

MMORPGs are not online shooters where random people meet up and can have low population limits without effecting the ability for friends to play together.
