    It is one shard. A newly launched (old) product and it fills one shard at launch.

    That being said, I got an hour to play and 459 ppl in queue and 1 hour 9 minute wait

    My queue went like this:

    48 minutes
    20 minutes later:
    30 minutes
    15 minutes later
    20 minutes

    Then it froze and never went down lower. I left the queue after 5 mins, waited a total of 40 minutes and never got in.

    It will freeze or crash after 30 mins

    If you do get in, note that many people are simply AFK near the auction or main city. Perhaps if they booted them?

    [Brasse edit:]Taaltos, starting multiple threads on one topic to push a specific agenda is against our Forum Guidelines. I have closed that other thread. This is the main thread, and I am using it to keep official responses and attention in one place. Thanks!

    Sorry about that, I put it in the suggestion box, was trying to put it where it belonged.

    There is a full on rush to glory right now on Vigil.
    We do expect logins to slow down and spread out over the day as time goes on.

    The Dev team is discussing application of an AFK timer, but this action will require a full on patch, so cannot be implemented before this Wednesday. The team will evaluate if this is still needed at that time.

    We were in peak primetime for both NA/EU - the busiest part of the busiest day of the week when the queues overflowed today, with a brand new and exciting service. Again, we expect this to lessen over time. In the meantime, Amary has opened another 200 slots on the server, as it is capable of holding more than a standard Live server.

    I am about to enter the queue as well, and I salute you all!

    Same here, I started with a 300+ Queue, and I have been stuck at 149 with ETA of 20 mins for about 10 mins now. Sad!

    This is clearly poor planning on the part of Trion. When you know what your sub numbers are it's simple math. Add a % to that (admittedly that's guesswork, but the bean counters have those numbers) and plan capacity for a small % above that.

    Not really that difficult. To have queues this bad 3 days after launch is pretty bad. And to have made the decision not to reimplement AFK kick is criminal.

    Oh, and pay no attention to estimated time, watch your position in queue, mine went from over 300 to to the 200's then got stuck in the 130's. Quit went back in and watched it bounce around. The estimated time looks like they borrowed a page from Microsoft.

    I froze at 127 / 21 minutes after waiting about 25 minutes. Restarting immediately put me back in the que at 77 / 11 minutes. I don't know if it kept my position or if it's a fluke, but give it a shot if your position locks up.

    I just did the same, ended up around the same numbers.

    Back in the old days of Classic Rift we had long queues as well. It's not easy to anticipate the number of people beforehand, and it is true that the number of people will diminish again after the first excitement runs out, but on the other hand it was pretty clear from the start that Prime would bring back old-timers just because of the Patron-only access and removal of the cash shop. That, and being able to do 20-person raids again

    yeah I looked at server today and got 311players with a 33min wait, 33minutes later i was at 177 with 23min wait

    it is inaccurate and takes so long most players run out of quality play time to spend in game, this will kill Prime fast
