# 1 PvE Queue Screen/ UI Feedback
10-15-2012, 05:43 PM
I like the new PvE queue screen - it looks really nice.

However, can we see how many people are in queue again? It's nice to know so you aren't waiting for a half hour for enough people to pile up on some of the more unpopular events. I've also jumped between one or another because one had one space left before it started and the other was all but empty, and I've found this kind of information rather helpful.

Thanks!

I like the new screen's layout, but it's very hard to read. And like said on this thread and others, there is no way to tell how many people are in the queue with you.

Also be nice if they color coded the Space Maps from the Ground maps, instead of just using icons.
NO to ARC!

Here here, want to see how many is queued up. Means I know if I have time to grab drink or not.

Also I haven't had it personally but heard people complaining about not being able to queue everyone up as a team?

Just adding my voice to this rising tide...

Please, bring back the Number of Players in each Que, Column.

Definitely agreed on needing to see the number of queued players.

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.
