Area 52 is absolutely absurd. 1000+ q's almost nightly. I'm sitting in a 900 q as we speak, 25 minute estimated.
The latency on Area 52 horde side is outrageous. I pay a pretty penny for quality internet service with a ping of 9 MS. Why is my ping 400+ on Area 52 ONLY? I log on my alliance server and my ping is..9. What it should be. But no, the population is so overcrowded on Area 52 that there is actually perpetual server lag. No matter where I am, in an instance, a raid, Northrend, Org, it's 400+, and then as soon as I do a speedcheck, my ping is 9-10.
I WANT OFF THIS SERVER. I cannot play the game that I pay for due to how overcrowded this server is. And no, I am not going to pay you 200 dollars to do it. This is ridiculous.
