    Default Huh? Prime time 1st day 1.9 only 2 shards at medium?

    It's time of this post (8:20pm PT, server time) and checking server status, and they have been up for almost an hour after a short server update, I only see Deepwood at Medium and Wolfsbane at Full (22m queue) with population, no others at all with a High population, and all the rest with a Low population. Huh? It's the first day of 1.9! I expected more interest than this! And every single European shard is at Low, they don't get 1.9 until a bit later but still... only 2 Medium+ pop servers for ALL of Rift, and every single other one at Low during prime time. What's up with that?

    Don't base anything on the pop listings. Earlier tonight there was some sort of wacky issue where Deepwood and Wolfsbane showed full, queues to get in, and other shards showed empty. Deepwood had a 30 minute queue a couple hours ago.

    Yeah, Deepwood and Wolfsbane earlier showed 'Medium' but both had queues, so something was wacky.

    Hmm, ok. I see Faeblight just went Medium, so that and Deepwood and Wolfsbane are the only ones not listed as Low, and all the European ones must be getting the update now as they just all went offline. Don't understand the queues for Deepwood when it shows at Medium, but Wolfsbane shows a queue down to 9m from 22m. Interesting.

    Might somehow not be accounting for server population correctly when players are in Conquest. Could cause faulty results if it was.

    Conquest doesn't last long enough to affect that.

    Correct. Conquest should be considered an "instance" spanned across the shards if anything.

    As for the shard status being wacky. At the start of 1.9, the shard populations were all bugged out. It appears the last shard restart fixed it up however.

    Op just to point out at 8:20pm ST for you it was about 3-4am in the morning in Europe, so no wonder we had all low shards to be honest.

    But we are much the same this side high in Icewatch, relatively high Bloodiron low elsewhere
