I really couldn't care less if people cry about a queue. The fact is, either some can play, or none can. I'd rather sit in a queue for hours knowing that when I get on I can at least play, not start a mission and have the server randomly start lagging and then crash. If there is a long queue I can just figure on playing or doing something else. As it is I just waste my time completely not knowing what is going to happen.

If they don't have the capacity there are two ways to handle it, and one is infinitely better than the other. The server has crashed twice now, once after barely being up. It obviously can't handle the prime time loads in both US and EU and that is the end of the story. Bringing it back up and pretending the result is going to be different is just sticking your proverbial head in the sand.

So how's the game playing for you right now? Oh that's right, it isn't, you're staring at a forum. It's just another form of queue.

Obviously the best of both worlds (part 1) would be not to have this problem, but given that it exists it doesn't make sense for the server to crash after being up half an hour because it can't handle the number of people playing.

It really didn't matter with the queue, you'd get in for 10-40 minutes then get booted out to 2100 of 2100 in the queue :p

Well that's another issue.

I'm just frustrated like everyone else that the sever is down again.

The queue system is crap...utter....crap......

Look...they *know* how many subscriptions they have....

..They *KNEW* How many beta keys they doled out...

....THEY KNEW they had this problem...

...They said they especially ordered new equipment to handle the "overwhelming load" ...in BETA....

...They said that again this passed week...

There are metrics out there ...and have been for years, that spell-out how much of a load their hardware can take... every half-wit IT outfit has this information...

They are *still* trying to make gold outta excrement....

This is about a product...and them skimping on it to keep as much money as they can...

This is about their margin...

There is no justification for pee-wee league platforms with fifteen years of history on how *NOT* to have these fundamental issues...

The queue system is your way of saying that rationing play time is acceptable on a brand new game by a company that knows *exactly* what they sold, and didn't actually *have* it...

Personally I'd rather not have a queue, reading the forums is much more entertaining than watching your queue number change every 20 minutes (like going from 541 at 10:00 pm to 540 at 10:20 pm)
