How? Well write or e-mail every major gaming magazine, website and blog. Only after a torrent of bad publicity is something ever going to get done. Let's pay bioware back for this disgusting state of affairs.
Sadly you are forgetting the hordes that will defend anything BW or star wars with their dieing breath. No matter what state it is in.

What i fail to realise is, how this is gonna be once the game is out for sale.

Will we have Ques which move not in Minutes or Hours but in days then?

Sorry, i dont buy a game and pay subscription to wait to play it maybe.

I also fail to understand why i cant keep the lot on my regular Server, meaning, that if i log out and log in again, i dont have a que and are already on the last server i have been on.

Currently all it takes to kill a game evening is a internal Server Error, a client Crash or a bug that causes you to log in and out again.

I know its weekend, but lets face the fact, this problem did not came out of nowhere. We saw it on the Beta Testing Weekend, while i have to say, the que there was agreeable. But is showed that there is far to less capacity, because of a very low server population setting or limited server ressources.

Both would have been in the solvable area within the last two Weeks, but nothing had happend so far, and i would like to know how this could happen.

Bioware and EA did not host their first Online game so they could have known what was ahead of them. Especially since they were so eager to bring every Star Wars Fan in this game. Also with their early game acces mails they were well aware about the numbers of players they have to deal with.

For me the question if they can solve those horrid long server ques is also the question if i will play this game.

Nevertheless they should fix it and they should fix it fast.

Things like this could kill a game far ahead of the sales start.

Imagine all the People who are raging at Facebook, Gaming Forums and so on will be a very bad publicity for people who might think to buy the game.

Glad to see nobody at Bioware/EA working this weekend to fix this problem. A terrible little statement in the OP is pointless.

If I have to wait in queue on release day like this still I'll just unsub.

I love this, This forum is updating so fast. As you read my post, 3 more are already up. Whats probably happening right now is EA is giving BW crap over this and BW is doing the same to EA. Until the childern in suits quit squabling over the issue, we patiently wait like the parents, hoping our kids will grow up and see the more important issue. Your actions affect others EA/BW. Remember that and THIS: I understand that this is a pre-release game we're playing, and that its FREE, HOWEVER......When the game requires me to PAY TO PLAY, I will not PAY TO WAIT! Oh and btw the way, your respons to this issue is pathetic. You would think a company would learn from its competitors mistakes. Where's the updates, beside the fact we've exceeded the post limit on your thread( seems thats not the only limit issues you have)!

Listen to your consumers, if you don't think we're important. Just ask sony how they did during their issue. We can make or break this game. Ball is in your court now.
Do you like my chopstick!

I have never complained about anything regarding this game so far. Moreover I've always been content with all the decisions BW made, even if they meant me waiting an extra few days or some options missing from the game or whatnot.

...but this is ridiculous. Waiting 3hs (and counting) in a queue is not normal. I'm sorry but if I'm going to pay a subscription I expect to be able to play not wait in a queue for several hours, and then play for one or two before going to sleep/work or attending to other responsibilities all of us have. And I'm one of the lucky few who actually has a bit of free time available. There are people who can only allocate 2 or 3 hours per day to this game, and that time is spent waiting in a queue.

Keeping your character logged in IS NOT a solution as it only exacerbates the issue. Only selfish, ignorant people resort to this.

Re-rolling IS NOT an option, most of us have guilds, have friends and can't all move to some server only to face the same issue a week later. I'm am not going to re-roll my character get it to lvl 30 again and then discover that the new server is also getting overcrowded.

Something needs to be done about this because people will not pay to wait in queues. So far BW came through on many other issues. I really hope they can do it again and manage to solve this problem.

This que systems has torn our guild apart! Bioware has posted that anyone experiencing a 2 hour que is recomended to roll on a new Eu server. However our guild was place on this server as a pre choice! so Bioware should let us transfer the whole guild to a new server with no ques rather than our new members who didnt get to start in pre launch to have to sit in a 2 hour que to play with their fellow guild. now 50% of our guild are on one server and the rest are still on the pre launch server!

I just feel like pre launch has been a whole waste of our time!

People seem to be posting thinking that Bioware don't know the problem they have.

They DO know that people are in que for hours before playing, and I'm sure they are figuring something out to fix it.

By far the biggest advantage of a December pre order. Picking a server that isn't full or heavy during peak hours. And never having to queue.
