That issue is among our top three issues for development right now (right next to our 'pending quests' bug) and should be fixed by tomorrow, barring any last minute issues.

I don't want to commit to even a rough ETA on that, but I'm hearing it's going well. It's being actively worked on.

Or perhaps we could officially launch in those territories. See another post incoming very soon.

Generally speaking, we haven't seen any servers go from empty to full (with large queues) inside a day. In fact, we have some servers that still have 'standard' load now and haven't moved from there since they came up during Early Game Access.

How about keeping to the truth, the problem is with BW, not with the customer, stick to the f.........cking fact for a change.

a good % of your customers are dc'ing from the gameservers, while ingame, multiple times a day, this only started happening today , after your long maintance, not only that but i have never disconnected from a queue before today, now ive disconnected 3 times from a queue, only just to start from scratch.

That and ive had 4 disconnects while i was ingame, though all with very short queues , except for the last one, then i had to start all over in the queue, and now 3 dc's from that queue making me start all over again.

Its a no-win situation for BW, they lower server pop cap=qq. They raise it and servers crash=qq. New players that for whatever reason that didn't pre-order and then on top of that didn't join brand new servers made for them so everyone can start even, its beyond my understanding.

At least this is good news - it's bad that it can occur, but it's good it's have high attention.

I agree - problem started today within the last 4-6 hours - at least here in Europe (The Progrenior).

Thanks for the info the queues have been way to long and I would love a character transfer so I can move my toons to a very small srever.

I'm curious to why so many EU servers are "over populated" but maybe not surprised....

At the same time, higher population servers will not be 'locked' because we want to allow people to join a server to play with their friends if they wish to.
So you'd rather allow EGA and non-EGA players to sit in hour/multiple hour long queues instead?

Thank you for addressing the issue of disconnecting and having to wait in queues again. This is more annoying than having queues imo.
