Well I was on my main KDF toon and I tried to get to where i could get to the shipyard from space and then after server not responding for 5 minutes I closed it and am now like behind over 7,273 ppl logging in... its pretty much unacceptable for what LTS players payed to get it.
As spots to login are opened up through the queue, Gold Members(Lifetime Subs/ Monthly Subscribers) are let in first. It's working, I'm watching it There is just a VERY high demand to get in-game at this time. Thanks for your continued patience.

I've played most MMOs that have been released since Everquest in 98 and I cannot remember ever sitting in a queue to log in. Occassionally it has taken a minute ortwo due to good old fashioned pre-broadband connections but seriously Cryptic sort it out or as quick as people will join your f2p model they will quickly find an alternative.
Pretty sure I thought one of the lifetime perks was to avoid this sort of thing.
Pretty sure if you did, you didn't know what you were getting... It's always been rather clear in every MMO out there that you get priority in the queue, not that you get to avoid the queue completely. The fact that LTS and Gold people are being put in queue simply means that there's that many people playing currently.
