Position in que 1800. I do not see why blizzard thinks its ok to charge us for a new expansion, have us pay a monthly fee and then wait an hour and thirty minutes to even long on. Would you accept that from any other service?

Position in Queue: 1873
Estimated Time: 158 minutes

Position in queue dropped from 1200 to 314 almost instantly and queue times somehow went up to 3000 minutes, maybe somethings bugged on my end.

I should have never logged off :(

Spent a long day at work, come home to finally play the new expansion and...

1923 in queue and ~120 minute wait time. *sigh*

Here's an idea... how about the server start booting off people who have been playing for 15 hours straight and give the rest of us a turn. They can immediately re-queue and, after a two hour break that would probably do them some good, get back to the grind.

How can you accept that you pay to play this game, and then you have to wait in line in order to play? No other game has that problem. Maintenance updates are understandable but having to wait in line is not. This is not an amusement park. Blizzard should have prepared for the large number of players. But they did not because they know most of us will keep playing any ways and they don't care.

They should just prepare servers to have enough space so every one can play. It is the only fix that makes sense, we all pay to play.

700 in queue.

So much for paying to play this game. Either you play on WastelandServer or deal with this crap.

Well I got passed the 900 queue just to get stuck on the loading screen for 10 mins, before I restarted WoW. Now I get to enjoy the fun all over again WOOT !

I bought WoW, BC, WotLK and Cataclysm(pre-order) 1 week and a half before Black Friday. I'm used to ACTIVISION Blizzard not doing sales and jacking all the prices back up.

Paying 3 times the price and having to deal with this @#*# is fun, right?

:p

Maybe it was my poometaphor, but here:

Black Friday = Cata release
shopper pile = players
salesSALESSALES = new content


Well, yea, of course it does. But there is no attraction to play on lowly populated servers, since they seem like empty wastelands and doing anything at the AH gets harder.
