On The Old Republic Queues

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Forums have an update on queues players are encountering when trying to join servers for BioWare's new MMORPG (thanks GameSpot). Word is they are working on things, but not to expect this to change at light speed:

Many of you who are already playing on these servers are asking for solutions, and we understand your frustration. At this time we can only ask for your patience. Population caps are being gradually raised on these servers, but raising them too fast will create an influx of new players and perpetuate the problem. We do not expect the queues to alleviate on these servers for the foreseeable future. If you do not want to queue, you should consider playing on another server, many of which have very low or no queues.

Character transfer is a common request for these servers. The ability to transfer your characters is being worked on, but there is no ETA on when it will be available.

Finally, we are also aware of the issues some have experienced where they have been disconnected during a queue due to internet issues, and had to restart their queue once more. This is a high priority for our server team and we'll be deploying a fix as soon as possible.

I've not had bad queues, around 20 minutes for a full server. Didn't really have a choice to go for a low population one because I had the full 7 days of early access.

What is really annoying me at the moment is that I'm locked out of the game until I sign up for a subscription and their subscription link times out all the damn time. They got my CC details when I bought the thing off Origin, why do they need a subscription until my month runs out?

Yep -- and if you follow their twitter thread they just took swtor and the ea shop offline to try and fix this. This is unfortunate.

It seems to me that swtor has a queue to enter their website (smart) and the ea shop does not (dumb).

Sadly, we can't play until we subscribe.

Thanks for that, now at least I know why I've been stuck in a waiting room for the last 15 minutes.

And as I was writing the queue popped and I got through and placed my sub in about 20 seconds because it already had my CC info. Now to see if the game recognises it.
