Is the queue "real"? Check this out


Recommended Posts

Thanks for providing an objective take on this issue. We all appreciate it, especially when you back it up with facts.

I've done some quick testing and can see that it does take almost exactly 10 minutes for the server to time you out.

Out of 10 tries, though, I was able to get into to the character selection screen but failed to insert the PIN quickly enough. I think I've read somewhere from a CM that it is a 5-second timer.

Here's how I think it's working: Login -> Login Server creates a session for you. At this point, your session timer has started (Let's say 00:00). Play Game button pushed. (00:05)

Whats is the point to Queue when server capacity is around 5900 and there is 5890 online already.No one logs out and they keep some space for vip members.Only solution is another server for eu and fre

I think there is.  I tried 3 times now. What i did was the following: I started a 10 minute timer right when I hit 'ok' at server select. All 3 times I get to the end of the queue somewhere aroun

I have said this before

This is not a new problem, it happened 15 years ago and it happening again today
The timeout time is indeed 10 mins (so it was 15 years ago), and as said before it starts counting on the moment u input ur credentials (time when u connect to their login server)
Queues are fake, its just ppl constantly tryin to login even after having their client closed for over 1h, ppl insist on queues

As pointed before, increasing the timeout time wont make u login, it will make the queue last longer, since 9/10 of the queue positions being freed are ppl in queue dropping out, with 95% certainty. And they are being droppped out at the 10 min marker, if they were being dropped out at the 15 min marker u would be gettin to their position on the 15 min marker aswell.

As per server population being so low, im pretty sure they simply arent investing in high end servers to support this, because i have no doubts that a 10K population server would go out of budget for such a high company.

As for the doubters yes there are private servers withstanding with populations way over 50K in both wow and lineage and other games.
As refered before L2 Extreme was closed in the past because it breached the 500K concurrent players on their total servers (with a grand total of 10 servers, 2 low rate, 2 high rate and 1 pvp for each zone EU and NA)

To be more than honest pop cap should hav been raised already and servers exchanged, because in 2 weeks time they should hav realised that there are far more players wanting to play classical then the current BS the offer as retail. Regular servers have been always with Light population ever since i started playin classical no matter the time or day, so why not change them

Raising the cap on servers might be another disaster, because all zones will be so crowded that people will have to fight over each and every mob and will cry on forums they cannot complete any quest. Adding 2 new servers with the same time zone as Giran and Talking Island might be a good idea. They can always be merged later on if the population starts to decrease.

This will also not resolve anything, people that are already 30+ will resist changing server, therefore the already populated server will remain as it is. Free server transfers for a week is the ONLY and MOST UTTER emergency action they should take.

Indeed, people should be able to transfer for free to the new servers for a certain period of time.
