The queues have dissipated on some servers. Logging into popular servers during off hours can be instantaneous to 30 minutes. On Faeblight, which is RP PVE, we’re still experiencing 1 to 2 hour wait-times during prime time. We think that might even out as players without guilds change to other servers or some choose not to subscribe after the first 30 days. I’m in for the full 6 months at least, having purchased at the “Founders” pricing model. The game was patched several times over the weekend; one in particular now boots players who’ve gone AFK at the character selection screen to reduce queues.
Back in the Herd
I had a wonderful weekend playing Rift and being back amongst the members of Casualties of War. Right now we’re all off doing our own thing – questing, some organized PVP, a few were running Iron tombs, crafting, helping each other when asked, etc. but we will be having Monday night progression groups that level and PVP together after the official launch.
