meh, just another gripe thread about the Queue. seriously, 45 + minutes. worst part being that I get in and it's near empty, all I can figure is that the other shards on my server must be JAMMED

I post here because I dislike adding to flame war threads and this seemed like the nicer of the threads on the front page.

I have to admit that i am frustrated with the queue system. I understand this is a new game and all but it doesn't make sense to have 10 servers with queues and 20 without. While i also can understand that a fair bit of programming work may need to occur to solve this issue, the least that can be done is some acknowledgement about the issue and perhaps an explanation. I settled on Shadow Hand and levelled my inquisitor to 27 because thats the class i enjoyed on the beta... to level her a third time on another server would be almost torture... Since it would be the same storyline for a third time, however i really want to play a sorc for end game content. Please don't force me to level a character elsewhere. Open up some sort of transfer option... paid or not paid... dont care.

50 minute queues need to end. (Currently 554th(started at 680) in line on shadow hand ETA 50minutes...)

I'm on Corellian Run, seeded there by BW with my guild, and have a 45 + minute Q, its ridiculous simply because I didn't choose this server but was assigned to it. and theres been no comment by mods or dev's or anyone as to an ETA of a fix. just getting frustrated

Agreed. My guild's been experiencing queues up to 50 minutes long on Krayt Dragon; meanwhile there's about a dozen servers with no population to speak of.

Not sure why anyone on the development end would think that adding new servers after a week of gameplay would alleviate population issues; any players with guild affiliations would be headed to the already-populated servers, and most players without affiliations would probably tend toward a populated server so they won't have trouble finding groups for flashpoints, PvP activities, etc...

I don't pretend to know the actual mechanics of this, but it seems like it would be possible to shut down the unpopulated servers and use that hardware for the ones with hour-long queues. Or something, I just hope this gets fixed.

This. I've waited through a couple of 600 queues to get the "cannot connect to server" error, and have to wait through the whole queue again. Bioware told me to reset my router... Great Customer Support there.

I have no doubts that it will get fixed, probably on the next big patch / downtime or 2. I was there for WoW's launch and it had very similar issues with the added bonus of constant server crashes.

Agreed; thanks for disconnecting me in the middle of a Flashpoint.
