    SWTOR: Insane server queues(EU)

    As the message says, i am very frustrated atm as i spend like 40mins last night waiting and 50mins the night before . I never rememmeber the queues being that high ever since on launch. Whats going on ? Has Bioware decreased the number of players that is allowed to be online / server?
    My server is Tomb of freedon nadd[ EU ].

    Didn't they just send out a free month for patch 1.2 to everyone that quit?? I'm pretty sure your queues will go away when everyone quits again once that free time ends.

    The game is cool, enjoyable, now runs very smooth, has a awesome leveling experience and has some challenging content at 50.

    This is what's going on ^^

    Here is your problem...

    ToFN is the only "full" EU server. Going after the some server Stats side, ToFN is on 59% (or a 2,53 rating), while the 2nd fullest EU-Server on Heavy (Jedi Tower) is at 47.4% (or a 2.00) rating.

    Add in that there's currently a f2p week (that's what currently going on), and ToFN has always been the fullest server, many people come to take a look again, some might be old ToFN players, and some might find their old server deserted, they'll stick with the only "full" server.

    Everyone and their grandmother rerolled on ToFN, making mid population server become low population and give longer and longer queues on the one server, what the game needs now more than anything is a couple of weeks with no restriction transfers and announced closure of the lower half of the servers.

    Be grateful for those ques, the alternative is horrible. I am lucky if we have 100 people on our station at peak hours. I cannot wait for server transfers.

    But yes, the increase is probably because allot of people have come back to the game, like me

    Yes please. /signed.

    IF you stay on ToFN, yes. As i posted, the server is the ONLY full server.

    Have fun with the Legacy System and Server Merges...

    Why do you think it's taken them so long to get transfers done...

    Im not too sad about the queues..
    If i find myself in the queue of +700 ppl (50-55mins), i just put on a episode of some tv-series and watch
    1 episode of a 45min show, or 2 episodes of 20mins shows, just enough time to watch and get something to eat/drink before actually getting in

    Anyone who had bought at least 1 month of sub time got the free period. I know this because I got it, and my sub ran out in Feb
    To declare that a personal, inner experience gives certainty about the workings of the universe is to assign far too much value to one’s subjective sense of conviction.
    I’m not that arrogant.

    The brain, marvelous instrument though it is, isn’t infallible. It can misfire, seize or hallucinate, and it can do so in a way that’s utterly indistinguishable from reality to the person experiencing it.

    And for those who didn't go past the free month at launch, they got 3 free days starting today.

    According to all predictions and wow/gw/d3/starcraft/halokitty fanz the game should have died months ago. I was psychologically prepared for empty servers and now u give me THIS! I hate you, i hate you all!!!

    Your server is the EU Fatman.

    Everyone rolled there because they didn't want to be on a "dead" server. Knew this would happen when 1.2 came out. Don't know why the re-rollers didn't think of this.

    The game obviously won't die, but you'd have to be extremely ignorant, to not realise that throwing that much free playtime at previous players is a horrible sign, the game is not even 6 months old, and they're struggling to get the players who left back again.
    Imho, they should have waited till patch 1.4 or 1.5ish, I tried it again and my issues with it is not changed whatsoever, and won't be fixed with a single patch, I doubt the majority of players left, because the game lacked the Legacy feature, sadly it just shows that swtor is beeing run by an extrenely inexperienced and incompetent mmo crew, which is a damn shame :/

    Been said already...

    Every server is basically dead apart from Tomb of Freedom Nadd.

    I would happily queue to be on a busy server, instead I'm on dead Ahto City, which says standard, but standard means light in BWs eyes.
