Hopped into queue at 3:20pm CST, and still have over an hour estimated wait time. I’m not asking for much, just the ability to play the game on the server that I’ve built friendships and made connections on. Working a 7-4 job literally means you don’t get to play during the week. It also means if you want to play on the weekends, you need to wake up early to beat the queues, and guess what, you also can’t log out throughout the day unless you are done playing until tomorrow, or want to sit in a 4 hour queue to get back in. This has been my experience in pre-patch so far.
I get the free transfer sentiment, I really do. Heck, I free transferred my characters off of Rattlegore, a dead alliance server, before it was phased out. But now I’m being asked to do the reverse, and go back to low pop server that will die out after launch because we can’t spin up a few more layers to deal with population spikes?
We are in 2022, dang near 2023, and we are still dealing with 4 and 5 hour queue times on expac launches?
At least address that you are actually looking into fixes for this.
