Except, you know, the huge number of players who simply don't pre-order. Just because you pre-ordered doesn't mean the majority of people did, and even if there's only a small number of people who get the game for launch that'll mean a longer wait for everyone.
Dead right mate, why do people who can afford to pre-order think everyone else can...i have mates like this that think "ah I have money so everyone else logically must have aswell"...people need to use there brain for a second and think about what there saying...cause two off the posts ahead of yours are wrote by complete close minded idiots
Actually, after the grace period is over, and those people who canceled their pre-orders and don't intend to play anymore.. don't play anymore, it should actually be better. And by that time, Cryptic should have more servers available.
I havent played mmo's in a few years, atleast since 2007, is this Queue business a regular thing nowadays?
I mean its not like this is the most multiplayer MMO, with the exception of the occasional auto team and mindless Zone chatter I dont see why we couldnt just be playing offline while in a queue in the first place.
I just Paid off my collectors edition today, which I know isnt as big of an investment as the lifers, but I really hope it doesnt stay like this.
I'm from Australia, so I have yet to see a queue and likely won't. Still, it makes sense for them to not get more servers to handle everyone at the moment. I guess if the queues are a sustained issue after a month, then they might do it.
I think that most of the people who would have rushed to the computer game stores to get copies of STO on launch day already have pre-orders and are taking part in (or attempting to take part in) Head Start. I don't think we'll see a huge rush on Tuesday, at least not much bigger than this weekend. Perhaps next weekend as the game goes more mainstream.
I do think we'll see much nerd rage about the pre-order stuff not working properly on Tuesday-Wednesday however.
Lots of people are not playing because they don't get their pre-order bonuses. I do play myself but I restrict my playing time until I get them.
The queues should go away after a week or two. It did that for ****(such a bad launch) at least.
Im really starting to get scared that this is going to be the rule rather than the exception. I mean so far there are so many negatives associated with his game and not too many positives outside of the game itself.
It's easy to dismiss issues as "its Open Beta' or "Its headstart" but it would be folly to suggest that these issues are going to magically fix themselves by tuesday morning.
The fact that there is little to no interaction from the Cryptic team on these forums suggests that they are not customer oriented. because even if you think that all the entitlement threads, and "I hate this game" Threads are invalid, from a business perspective that are loosing out on potential clients and even current clients by creating an image of a company that doenst care.
they certainly don't "Have to" upgrade their equipment to deal with a heavy demand to play the game, because as some have stated, they could loose alot of money if the demand dropped off. but how can you expect to have a successful game without taking that risk, its almost like shooting it in the foot developmentally and expecting it to still do well. creating any game is a risk, it can be canceled at any time, this title should know that better than most.
There are alot of people here who will tough it out just because its star trek, but there are just as many people who thought it was a cool looking game and wanted to play. but if they dont start addressing customer needs then I feel like this game is going to be doomed from the start.
They're down ... to sort out the issue. There are something like 5 servers and 4 of them were down so the game was limping along on one server. This is why so many angry posts about queues. Personally, I'm glad they took down that last one. At least the queue whining will stop.
