    Default Server Consolidation Nightmares???

    How are we supposed to play with our guild/friends? If they got on a server that is now full, what are our options? Also, spawning tons of new servers is what killed warhammer. When the initial excitement died down, then you had a ton of servers that became very low population. (Kiss of death for pvp)

    Trion pre-sold a ton of copies of this game and were posed to really succeed here, but this is not a single-player game. Almost everyone plays with RL friends and randomly picking a server just isn't an option.

    they have added like 10 servers. Keep in mind this is the headstart. Actual release is still to come. They haven't over-reacted and tripled the number of servers or anything

    wait in queue. If it says 12 hours it really means 30-60 minutes

    The queue isn't really as long as it says. I originally got in the queue with a 7 hour wait, and that was an hour and a half ago. Now it says I have 30 minutes left. It goes fairly quick.

    Maybe I am unlucky, but I picked the shortest queue I saw and it was still 50 minutes. I've been waiting now about 50 minutes. I am #19 now with 14 minutes to go. So I wouldn't count on it unfortunately.

    I hope they don't bring up too many new servers - consolidations months down the road will be a real pain in the arse.


    It's better to have queues during the first couple of weeks with fewer servers, than to go the WARHAMMER way and have 90% servers as ghost towns 3 months after release - and then have to merge servers.

    Server merges SUCK - so please keep the number of servers low

    Every single time I have waited in a queue, I eventually just get disconnected. I have yet to actually successfully make it to a character creation screen.
