However seeing how Bioware, EA and Lucas arts have the money to atleast buy more and more stabilized server its freakishly annoying.

I hope this is a temporary thing, but if you expect people to have to spend 2-3 hours everytime they want to play you are in deep water.

Not to mention the sudden FPS drop to the game. I Played the beta with 45 fps, no hardware change or software change it decreased to 10 fps, this is just a shame.

I dont mean to flame, just expressing my opinion on how well the launch of this game has been.

Blizzard didnt have this problem while launching world of warcraft.
How is it that SWTOR has this problem?

All im saying is, please for godsake you should fix this....
What? WoW did have this problem. WoW you got the loot bug when looting bodies and mines forcing you to log off and restart every few times when it comes to looting. In WoW the servers on release kept crashing because blizzard didn't expect to have anywhere near the players that they did. The que times were outrageous. On Warsong I had to wait 3+ hours just to get in and play. It wasn't the only server with an outrageous que time. WoW had a rocky launch. Don't get me started on people falling under the world..

The queue's are indeed rather annoying (makes me unable to play quite alot), but I hope this will be fixed come launch-day. Either by raising the online-player-cap or by offering free migrations (guild-migrations?) to new servers.

Sure enough alot of new players will select low-populated servers, but I suspect quite many of the new arrivals have friends that's already playing and has chosen a server, which is why I hope there'll be a free migrations coming.

And WoW has to face that is no longer the new shiney game, and alot of people are getting burned out on it judging from the 1.5 or so subs lost the last few weeks and the companies stock outlook downgrade based primarily on SWTOR coming out. I would say the investor types are a little scared about WoW's outlook right now. Yes CATA had alot of new content but SWTOR has 800+ (if you play all classes) hours of all new just story leveling content. That is alot of new content for WoW to contend with. I think it kinda equals out.

Yes I know, Wow had/have this problems too.
But actually only preorder people are playing the game (this means Bioware kows the exact number of players for a quite while) and we have to wait 2 hours bevore we can play.

In my opinion it was a failure to invite the people by waves and to add server by server.
Because now you have extremely high populated servers and a lot of new players will not choose the servers because of the population. They will join their already playing friend.

So Bioware should alow servertransfers to solve this problem.

And the next big issue is, that the server does not remember your IP. This means gamecrashes or disconnects will immediately place you in the login queue.

The rest of the game is amazing!!!!
