These are the perils.. of playing on some of the most 'popular' populated servers.

I am on a high pop server.. but not to that level, i havent had a queue yet.

You should be able to queue always.

Now, whether there is a line to log in, that may happen on the more populated realms at the moment.

6 days later and no improvement. Average wait time to play is 1.5 hours.

They have opened up free realm transfers off of Frostmourne and other high population realms.

They can't force people to take them, but they are available until October 4th (tho they may end sooner) if you'd like to switch.

I had 2-3 hour queues at the start of Wrath. It was that way for about a month after launch.

They've totally upgraded the servers since then. They are allowing free transfers off the realm. What more do you want them to do?

I bet if you took the free transfer you would have seen improvement, right? You have chosen to stay and deal with the issue. So there is nothing more we can do since you made your choice.

THe servers are set to allow X many people at one time.. any more, and you can have CLIENT side issues (look at the people with lower spec PCs who lag when there are too many people in a city). It has to be able to track X many people around you, what they are doing, etc and feed all that to you.. which can be alot of info.

Compare it to a store on black friday.
All cashiers are open.. but yet there is still 10 + people in every lineup. Why? Well, its just volume, plain and simple. Can they do anything? Nope, all the cashiers are open.

Your choices are to wait it out, as you descided to go to that busy location.. or go to another store where it may not be as busy.. just like you can change realms in wow.

ok so..

I thought blizzard looks at the people creating/transferring characters to a realm ( ie frostmourne ) and then sets a lock. Not a lock like now which is too late.

Whatever happened here is too late. This issue should have been addressed prior launch.
I estimated time lost : about 36 hours since launch.

We pay good money to play. Not money to wait.

Holyangel, isn't there a website like Reddit or 4chan you can go to to post condescending remarks to people about issues you only know minimal things about? Seriously... go find other people to trash on the internet.

We have queues on Kil'Jaeden, and they opened the character migrations (not free character transfer as that's something else completely) which would be fine except not only do you NOT get to choose which realm you go to (number one reason why most people don't take this option) but the realm they send you to isn't balanced for the horde/alliance ratio.

It's not a "free transfer" it's a one-option-only migration to a sub-par server. This doesn't help queues. Only a small amount of people would even consider using it.

BUT it is the only option.

Blues have even responded on this in other threads. Its not a 'adding more ram' issue to the hardware... The hardware is top notch, and to run well, under proper loads, and not effecting the end users play while on that server.. they can not allow more people on.. end of story.

So, they give the migrations. Do they allow it to anywhere? No.. why? because people will more from one high end server to another, and cause just the same problem.

The only other option, would be for blizzard to forcefully move players.. which is not going to happen.

The problem with transfers is the lock out for server firsts for the raiding types.
