I got stuck on a loading screen as well. It happened when I left an instance to return to Sector Space in the Sirius Sector. I was doing the Patrol Risa Sector mission, but I can't remember the name of the system that I was in. However, I do recall that it was the top one on the list when you take that mission.
Not sure if that will help the devs or not, but there it is.
Yep, I first ran into that this morning entering the Pico system. Only place it happened. For hours it was fine. THen about an hour after that the server went down.
Now I'm leaving Tazi and it is taking quite awhile.
My guess is that the server is struggling under the massive load. They'll have to put a call out to all of the hardware vendors on Monday (if they didn't already) and get every extra part they can get in place by or shortly after launch. I suspect the number of people playing is just crushing them.
And before every starts screaming that they should have known, there is no way they could have known. The only way to know how many people will play a new MMO is by releasing it. WoW was never expected to have 11 million subscribers. SWG was expected to have a million and never went over 100,000 sa far as I know.
This will work itself out, but it is frustrating in the mean time.
Currently stuck on retrieving character screen and my brother is stuck on a loading screen between maps. I had to force close my game when it was stuck on a map change loading screen. been slow loading all day since 1pm GMT
