I tried to log in at 7.25am this morning. 600queue!!!!!!! AT 7.25AM!!!!!!

I have never ever seen that in ANY MMO before! Currently in a 1250 queue!

I and my guildies who invested as lot of time in early access are losing patience fast. This is stupid!

judging by the inept postings of a few, i think they were expecting to have their cake, and eat it. and then have seconds. it seems...

LOL! this is great! Still 2+hours of queueing... I guess I shouldnt log out?

Perhaps a solution to the problem, am I the only one that remember the old speccy/C64 games, some of the good ones, would let you play space invaders while the game loaded.
Surely the idea would work here, we could all pay monthly to play 2 hours of Pac Man/Space invaders per day

does this really need to be repeated? the game has just launched. there will be more new people. it is not a hard concept to understand. people gravitate to populated servers. if you think about it (and please, dont think too hard), you and your mates could be a bit more constructive if you petittioned Bioware for a free transfer. its ok, ill give you that idea for free.

I'm pretty sure it's been said on this thread before, sorry for not reading all the pages.

One thing is your server-load-balancing. Another thing is getting kicked out of the queue after waiting for x minutes or, more likely, hours.

The second thing is with being unable to rejoin the queue, because of a still existing session on the server. Instead of restoring the session, like many do demand here, it just throws a "sorry something went wrong but we will only tell you a error number" aka "Error 1002" message.

Look. I've been through my servers queue many times today and it's the server with the longest queue that i know of. It started with somewhat 20 minutes in the morning and is now again more than 1h. Again: I went through the whole queue at least 8 times just to get that fricken error 1003 and then 1002 as long as my session has not timed out.

Note: I'm still not in the game after 7 hours!

PLEASE FIX!
Thank you.

Next time there is a questionaire about "would you recommend this game to a friend" be sure include the line that says "if you knew when you queued to the server your guild is on you would be number 1200 in the que and wait over 2 hours every time you want to play"
because I think the feedback might be more accurate now.

It's day 6 for these huge queues, actually. 5 days ago they started consolidating all the queue gripe threads into this one, which has rolled over once.

Now there's a new thread (here) where SR basically says they can't do character transfers yet, and doesn't know when they'll get them. He also says the queues will continue for the foreseeable future. Not a good sign.

If BioWare is "monitoring and adjusting" stuff, it hasn't made any appreciable difference for these hardest-hit servers.
Do you support a Mac client for SWTOR?
BioWare Founders do! (once they get "everything stabilized and happy.")
"[Mac OS users] are an important and large audience. And we want to serve that audience."
