    Default Conquest player limit?

    Just now near the end of the 5 minute timer in CQ all 3 teams were shown as full and queuing just resulted in you sitting there not getting in. Since when is there a limit, and why is it apparently low enough to kick in on a Monday night!? The fact that such a limit exists totally goes against what Conquest was supposed to be anyways.

    There has always been a limit. The limit is actually extremely high and has not been reduced since the release of Conquest. There are multiple hundreds of players per team when it is completely full.

    Well, that's good to know. Was super frustrating to not be able to get into CQ when there's only 1 running and an hour until the next one starts, but at least I can plan for it now.

    will you guys be possibly looking at increasing the limit with all the hardware upgrades you guys have done?

    This. My computer is very old and slow.... so I have nobody to blame but myself, but even if I go full special low low settings, when conquest is real busy it is a mess.

    It affects a lot of people. Trion has admitted they know there's a problem.

    CQ has had low fps issues since it was first released.

    Maybe you shouldnt wait until the end of a CQ to leech the marks?

    Best thing that ever happened to CQ was my AMD Phenom pooping out - a cheap Ivy Bridge even makes Volan reasonably smooth. 20 FPS on ultra no shadows with a 570 in the 100+ vs 100+ CQ zergs.

    I always had the impression the limit was 600 players? as in 200 vs 200 vs 200

    Anyhow i like to check the map soon as i join, see where all the fun is, here's a "quiet" Conquest match

    I've popped online, had someone yell "Timer", and gotten Full x3 plenty of times.

    Such is life.

    Aggressive pursuit and removal of AFK leeches will open up a lot more player slots, and increase the competitiveness of matches.
