Just to play Devil's Advocate here...

If they went back to displaying queue numbers, wouldn't that actually be counterproductive? Don't people -not- queue up for a specific event when they see it has a low number of people waiting in the queue?

If you opened up the UI and saw 1 person waiting to start a 5-man PvE map, or 4 people waiting on a different map, you're going to pop into the 4-queue and ignore the other. Even if you enjoy the other content more.

It's psychological. Displaying those numbers serves no purpose to Cryptic. They have no reason to discourage participation in any of their available content.
The problem is there's just not enough players in game to cover all events well.

It would also be nice with so many event we want to run now to have a larger limit on how many events we can queue for at the same time. That would help alliviate some of the no display issues as any given queue will now have more players in it at once.
