With every fiber of honesty you can expect from some using the nick "Debaser," I swear to you that, on Llane, I've never
seen a queue to connect to the server. I play at prime-time hours too, between 8 and 12 on weeknights, EST. It wasn't until recently that I tried to connect to an RP server that I saw that message for the first time.
There've been two problems with the authentication server since I registered (11/23/04), and I remember the Auction House in Ironforge being incredibly flakey one day the week before last, but that is it. I mean, that is it
. Oh, and the announced down times. But they're true to their word on when the world will be back up and running.
I'm not denying the problems you guys are experiencing -- there are enough substantiated complaints around the Web to legitimize it in my eyes -- but I am
saying that I haven't ever experienced what you or the PA guys are talking about. Either I picked a good server, or it sucks to be you!
