How do call a game failing and worry about login queues in the same thread?

No I played continually since pre-launch. I don't recall EVER having to wait in a queue... for more than 5 minutes. Usually much much less. I had longer queues in WoW.

Fact is PAYING to queue is just going to go down in gaming lore, i find it incredulous that anyone would defend that, i am in a queue now on the proginator server EU - and there are not ANY free players yet either lol...
Status screen shows a 5 minute queue for Progenitor... right this minute.

Stop exaggerating.

Note: one minute later... no queue.

Again.. stop exaggerating.

Same experience here as well. It depended on your server.

There were however a small number of servers at launch that were overloaded and did have longer queues. Not that many really... and it went away after a few weeks.

But why are you complaining about something that hasn't happened yet? Give it a chance. If you're forced to queue, then by all means rant and rave. No use getting worked up over hypotheticals.

IF the server is full of free to play players, and there are a few hundred subscribers in the queue, what will you be doing as a subcriber?

Paying to queue. Mark my words.
Soon. (tm)

As opposed to what you are doing RIGHT THIS MOMENT?

I think you are over-inflating the issue. Kinda like how Bioware over-hyped the game....

If a game pumps millions into a game and gets what a few hundred thousand subs, it fails.

If the said game tries to squeeze the few hundred subs into not enough servers, it fails.

When a game has haters who hate on it so passionately it must be doing something right.
