good point there

I definitely am grateful to BW for their effort, some steps just doesn't seem to be the best resolution..

ppl who have around 1-2 hours per day to play basically won't play for few days now, which is sad
That is not dead which can eternal lie and with strange aeons even death may die.

Locking the servers is a bad idea for the same reasons as have been stated above: you'll be preventing people from being able to play with their friends or, in some cases, join the same guild. Once the initial rush has calmed down, things will improve and most of the people who are complaining the loudest will probably forget to thank BW for working on the issue.
Due to these points you should still be allowed to invite friends to a server which is full, whereas you shouldn't be allowed to join a full server without anyone you know on the server. This is what causes the problem. Guild X is looking for a server, they join an already full server without previously having someone there, rather than joining a standard/heavy server.

Locking servers seem to be the only way to go, that or, as previously mentioned, increase capacity. I don't really enjoy waiting around an hour to join a server that was standard back in Early Access. Speaking of Ahto City here.

Obviously everyone who is just starting is going to want access to all servers, but it's unfair and selfish to those who have rolled and spent the days on their characters already and then have to wait hours to login to their chracters because these new people want access to the server when IT'S FULL!!!

Can't even ask to be transferred to a low pop server, not yet even an option, if we did though the same would just happen again. We take our high lvl characters off the server and we end up with everyone trying to follow, everytime I login or dc it take up to 2 hours to login again even though it says on the server screen less than 20 min.

As to joining your guild, well you should have done that before now, if you so incensed about joining the guild as a new character then go move your guild to a low pop server, not a valid excuse.

Srsly need to fix this server pop and restrict additional people gaining access, just compounds the problem.

We formed our guild on the website and were dropped in hidden beks, 6 of us were invited in the first day or 2 and are getting up the levels, the unfortunate problem now is everyone else who we play wow with us were looking to start playing and are being put off due this, originally we had 40 people looking to play SWTOR this is now dwindling. Poor advertisement when your chatting on vent and people asking how things are going and you say oh i'm not playing atm im qued.

You could remind them that wow used to have just as long queues but if the 6 of 40 of you move then the other 34 +6 can easily login to a new low pop server.

and yes many of my friends from wow are no longer willing to come across to play Swtor, people have short memories about server queues.
