Not all of us can plan when you should get in queue in order to be efficient with your playtime. Some of us are oldies with family and such and wanna PLAY when we get the time.
I can't see in the future of when the little ones will fall asleep.
Please don't mess this up. The game is too great for it. And servers with queues is so 2005.
Locking servers and not allowing people to play with their friends would just lead to more intense whining. This ain't gonna solve unless there are character transfers. I made char on Legions of Lettuce, but i don't intend to wait two hours in queue, so Im just gonna create my republic alts on low pop server.

Just to update:
I have just had to give up on playing now, as the '35 minute' wait has been an hour and three quarters and still only half way down the queue.
Thanks for that. Don't expect people to pay subscriptions for this kind of access.

Anything beyond 15 minutes is simply unacceptable, doubly more so now that the game is live. Some of us don't have the time to spare sitting around waiting to play the game, and it has only gotten worse these past few days. I want to jump in and play the game, not spend 30 minutes to an hour looking at a damn queue progress bar!

BioWare, please lock the full servers, and prevent new accounts from creating characters there; this is the only way to ensure people spread out and use the other provided servers, and stop packing into one location like sheep. It's getting ridiculous now, and unless something is done, you will likely start to lose people once the 30 days is up.

What about locking the full servers but allowing to enter them only the accounts signed to a guild on that shard via this site?

480 ppl waiting in queue on Sceptre Of Ragnos server at 11:00am????
This is ridiculous.
How the hell do you BWs think, people will plan their day and gameplay time with a silliness like that?! New servers - fine, what with old servers? Must be expanded or something because it can't work that way. There is no "playing an hour or two in the morning" - just waiting in the bloody queue until you finally have to go and deal with RL stuff instead.

The thing is that everyone payed to PLAY and not to be put in a waiting line.
It is as simple as that !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It would be nice from BW to stop treating everyone as if they are 12 yo

If the REAL wait times were actually posted (i.e. as most posters have said, at least 3x what it actually states) it *might* just put people off sitting and waiting and start creating new toons on other servers. I agree though, I really wish Bioware would lock the full servers. Having started queueing this morning for Red Eclipse (where my mains are and have been since EGA day 1) at 9:56 and still not having got into the game, I too am frustrated.
