The Red Eclipse / Server Capacity

Our server is now one of the busiest. 1 hour 15 minute queues are not uncommon.

I for on am praying they increase the server capacity, otherwise I will strongly consider creating my main on a different server or, if it is not too long around the corner, paid transfer my currect character to a different server. :(

The longest wait I've had recently is about 20 mins. The queue problem has been greatly reduced!

No longer experiencing any queues. Most recent one was on Xmas eve and that was about 2 minutes. I went for a piss, and came back and was logged in omg!

I hardly encounter queues on Red Eclipse anymore.

Longest I have to wait was 45 mins - but that was well over a week ago.

When I have a queue (at classic GMT evenings peak time) it is no longer than 5 - 10 mins max.

Currently it looks pretty stable and I hope it stays that way :)

I still use Hello Kitty Adventure as a guild name for my PVP guild. Been using it for several years in 4 different MMOs now. This being the 4th.


Although, when I went from Elyos to Asmo on Aion, I did at first have "Your GF hits harder" But in the end, I resubbed to dissolve HKA on Ely and remake it on Asmo.

Back in beta, I had to wait all day just to join one of the servers, but then again, on that day, all those weekenders were on, so...
Anyway, I found that servers with a loot of people lagged the game considerably, atleast on the smuggler class. to me it felt more like a ffa than a story based game. But of course, I did consular, which was the opposite. It felt like SP. :/


Dude do you even play the same game as anyone else ? This game is so story driven from planet to planet.. i've played the smuggler story to early 30 and its fantastic, as is the consular....

As I understood it, they capped the busy servers from EGA to discourage people from creating characters there.

If you want to make a new char and are put in queue for it, you're likely to go elsewhere.

Caps should be released soon I guess.

Then again, this is me playing a guessing game based on what I've seen on my own server.

well at launch day they added about 6 more servers and last time i checked they where pretty much empty..but they did fuck up big time not having more server during pre-launch to spread every1 out more..also the queues arnt that bad anymore...a few days ago it was way worse but now it takes maybe 40mins if u logon around 17.pm..if u get on around 14-15 it shouldnt be much of a problem to get on:eek:

so the option is, move to another server (one of the new ones) or w8 for everyone else to spread out :P..they should add sum "move character to another server" option thingy and the problem would solve it self

Don't like to wait in a queue for a game that you have paid so much money for and are forced to maintain a monthly subscription just to be able to play the damn thing? Tough luck bros, queues are here to stay:

Quote:
“We’re monitoring all of our servers around the clock, and we’re raising server population caps where required. However, to ensure our long-term goals of server stability and healthy populations, we do not want to raise population caps too rapidly. We want incoming players to populate lower population servers. At the same time, higher population servers will not be ‘locked’ because we want to allow people to join a server to play with their friends if they wish to.

“With this in mind, we wanted to notify everyone of some consistently high population servers. These servers are closing in on their absolute population cap (the maximum amount of players who can be on the server at any given time) and will likely have a queue to enter even at off-peak play times.

“We strongly advise you to not create new characters on these servers, unless you are prepared to queue to play.”

Queues are even less fun when you get dumped off the server for no apparent reason and have to re-queue!. :D

I did not experience a queue when logging on before the servers went down for launch maintenance. Perhaps the cap has increased or just not a busy time.


I think it was due to the maintenance impending, or it was kind of late when maintenance ended. I am trying to log in at 10:30am right now, and there is a 200 person queue on Jedi Covenant...

On the EU servers there was a whole bunch of us who went from a queue of several hundred to toon selection screen at around 7ish UK time. So yeah, I think they have put the caps up.

I assume they think everyone in EGA had settled on a server and so didn't risk flooding a single server by upping the caps.
