aaaaaaaaaand again, there was no queue in the morning when I woke up for work - so I wasnt able to let it try to logg while I`m at work, coming home now - 16k queue, amazing again, estimated wait time: 789 min. Yesterday I waited 9 hours to play 15 mins before it was alrdy 2 am .. some people work blizzard. Fix your retarded queue times.
Can we get some more updates on server queues? Its been hours since the last update and for someone who works during the day I'd love some updates before the day is over.
Keep the updates comming, it's been ~4 hours since last update and the situation now is way more relevant since people are getting off work.
But it was last updated 4 hours ago Pyrewood Village at time of this post is 2078 in queue, and wait time of 37 minutes. So this I assume is a work in progress and not synced to the servers.
Everlook, 16.00, position in queue 7188, estimated time: 204 minutes. Wow... so much wow.
I assume this is a WIP as well. Zandalari Tribe was 2k queue, 40 minutes wait. Hope you guys update it more often, cause it's not very helpful with info that's more than 5 hours old.
I wonder if Blizz has stoped posting updates intentionally... Showing that the majority of EU servers still have 10k+ if not 20k+ que ## on second launch day is realy bad PR.. ppl might start thinking Blizz is incompetent.. and dont give me that nonsense about blizz doing it to avoid having to merge servers later on.. the dissaster of having 300.000 europeans sitting in a que waiting for 2 days, by far overshadows any negative effect some server mergers after a week or 2 would have caused.
1st i think that Bliz did not predict that so many people will want to play so badly.2nd I think that they should have announced more servers initially so that people can distribute themselves. This is not a new game - we know exactly what we are getting ourselves into so we all planned to form guilds with our friends and chose servers. And i think i speak for everyone here - choosing a server by a large group of people is frekaing hard ! 3d There is always the fear that the population will drop by 50%+ by the end of the 1st month and trying to transfer characters and deal with dead realms where there is a solid need for a FULL realm to work well in a PVP environment is a justified reason on bliz to not want to allow free transfers etc. 4th we are all suffering and there is no GOOD solution. if you are alone and not playing with friends PLEASE move to an emptier server, if your friends are willing to all move PLEASE move together, for the rest of us who already formed guilds and spent 10+ hours on the game - patience is a virtue.its 9am in the states ... they just came to work - they might post something soon.
Five hours old data are absolutely useless.
5 hour long queue on Mograine since noon and still counting. Estimates are vastly inaccurate.And I think that the population rating fiasco is to blame for what we have right now. Lower population realms were compared to the highest pop realm in whether they were at recommended/medium/high/full state while already being way past reasonable capacity and having absurd queue times. Newcoming players saw the word "medium" for example and naturally rolled a character there unaware of the real situation. And so we have what we have now.
I dunno about you guys, but i expect a trible A company, to be able to update ppl in what is a 'crisis situation' in regards to the product they are selling.around the clock..So even if it was 04 in the morning in U.S id expect updates regular. If they cant even have a guy posting updates durring nighttime in U.S. then that shows to me that the commitment of gettin this resolved is rather low.Imagin something similar happening to Nike, or CocaCola.. etc., there would be a whole stream of comunication commin from those companies, until issues were fixed. And thats just in regard to the communication around the problems.. there would prolly also be all sorts of attempts to mitigate the PR dam, that this is causing.. but as far i am concerned, the silence from blizz is rather stunning atm.It dosent help the issue, that u cant play retail whilst waiting, or that blizz is posting updates on world first race... seriously.. its like haveing a 100m sprint and half the field is not allowed to start until 2-3 seks after the first guys went of.. where is the competion in that ?All in all for me this is 1 giant dissaster, feel free to dissagree thou.
It is really not fun, especially not for german players. Only TWO god damn pvp realms, they are both full. How is it ok for Blizzard to have queue times of more than 6 hours. People wait in queue for 8+ hours actually. This is beyond ridiculous, seriously. I dodged to an english realm, guess what? Same #$%^, queue times of more than 6 hours... this is a joke. And NO, vanilla did not have such high queue times when it was released, at least not in the EU, Feb. 2005. 14 years later and Blizzard does a worse job now than before? I mean wtf....Tomorrow my sub ends, I wanted to resub for classic only, because retail bfa sucks ass. But this makes no sense currently. I have to wait 33% of a day to play a couple of hours. This is just stupid as !@#$. Blizzard failed so hard on this.
Its not cheap to deal with this problem, nor it is easy to setup and run servers. Furthermore "put more servers" there isn't a magical button that does this, these are physical actual machines, the software on them needs to be deployed and setup and tested - its been 41 hours since the official release. Even if they had a last moment preparation it was those few servers they booted up as soon as they realized that *!@# is hitting the floor. They are 100% working on a solution but they cant say anything - because if they do say "we are deploying more servers" then people will stop playing until they do and if they get delayed because of an external factor people will start asking for a refund which will be justified. Big corporations like Activation Blizzard are big ships, they turn slow they move slow but they reach there eventually. I think everyone should have been perfectly aware that the 1st week was going to be *!@#. If it doesn't get better after the coming weekend then we can start picking up the pitchforks.
