It is 10:30 pm Mountain time, and I am still in a queue for the Swiftsure server. The queue is not in the thousands as it use to be a week ago, but still more than a hundred is not acceptable. Please don't stop the maitenance or whatever it is you are trying to do to fix the issue.

I get that people are having issues, but seriously... In the first week of playing this game I rerolled the main I'm playing 3 times onto different servers. 1 on an RP server, 1 on a PVE server and 1 on a 3rd server (PVE) when I learned a bunch of co-workers were playing on that server. The only time I have ever been on a queue is on the 3rd server, and only for a few minutes. Maybe if everyone wasn't so dedicated to playing on a specific server and made characters across the board a little more, there would be less queue time. Pick a server that seems lighter than others, even if it's an RP server and you don't RP or a PVP server and you don't PVP. What I'm trying to say is, help the devs the only way you can with the problem: DON'T BE DEDICATED TO ONE SERVER! If you have a guild, research what might be a good server and move the guild there and start from scratch. You can reform any guild on any server by going to the home world and 'building' the guild. Or so the load screens say. If you really like your characters, you know how you rolled him/her. Restart them. Hell, think of it as a free respec from the ground up. Or delve into the enemy if you are a staunch Republic/Sith supporter. Playing as the other side might surprise you. And there are no limitations on servers for that. I have a jedi and a sith on the same server.
Anyways, I'm getting off my soapbox now. I'm just saying that there are other solutions than complaining nonstop to the devs that the queues are too long.

Thank you for your viewpoint. I went to the server that my guild was assigned prior to launch. I have been with the guild over 6 months prior to launch and I plan on sticking with them. My character is lvl 38 and I do not plan on investing that much time on another server. My gaming time is important to me when I get the time because I have other responsibilities. Nothing is more frustrating thatn waiting an hour to get in the game, then play for a little bit only to have to go afk to take care of home business. When I get back, I am logged off and have to get back into a queue. Very frustrating. The main issue is that we were forced by bioware into a server that ended up being the most populated.

FWIW Queue times are improving but it is still absolutely necessary that Bioware find a way to respect a person's position in the queue even if they get DQ'd.

I would honestly like to pause my subscription until this gets worked out because getting bumped to the end of the line creates obvious emotions of rage / murder / etc. mostly toward AT&T... but the problem is that I can't really turn off my DSL in disgust....

I thought there was a recent patch that addressed that issue.

The Customer Service forum may have answers to various launcher/account issues people are having - check it out.

So create a new toon on one of the other servers. This is not the end of the world. The ONLY reason you're stuck in a queue is because you refuse to move to another server. The majority of servers currently have NO wait time at all.

This is outrageous - the queues will not go away.

To the trolls telling us to move to others server - yeah, i do this, but only when I can move my characters! My highest level is 34, and that took long enough already to just re-roll on another server.

Please, BioWare, open up for movement of characters or strengthen your infrastructure.

You are a troll, and a big one I might add - what about, let's say, one month from now, when your server is full all the time - will you just re-roll on another server, or will you by that time DEMAND a solution instead of workarounds?

There is no option to move. It was totaly predictable that some servers would be overcrowded, just look at just about EVERY other MPORG launch in history. Yet they weren't prepared and didnt have a solution in place. The guild launch program just made it even worse with people stuck on servers they can't even blame themselves for picking. What did they learn from past launches ?. I think the answer to that is simple they know MPORG players will put up with a crap service so thats what they get.
