Queues
We know there have been questions about the queues on the servers, so we wanted to take a moment to give you some insight....suck it.
Jeff Hickman, Executive Producer – Troll Services

......The queues for swiftsure are massive. They are some of the longest in fact...and it is very frustrating to wait 2+ hours only to get kicked out 30 minutes into playing the game....and then wait an other +2 hours. Its happened to all of us. Some people have asked if the guild would consider moving to a less populated server. At this point, we think moving the entire guild to another server (with no guarantee that the new server will be any good) is a bit premature. MMO launches have always sucked, but a month into the game they settle down to their normal flow. I don't think it will take a month until Bioware does something to alleviate these queues, but it might take a few weeks. We ask everyone to be patient for the time being.

Some of the reasons why our server has such high queues are some of the same reasons why it could be one of the very best servers. The SHA, the Oceanic Daisy chain, and Pokket republic fanboys all bring in considerable advantages. The SHA brings in a healthy and competitive community for both Empire and Republic, the Oceanic guilds brings action to the server all times of the day (plus are also more republic heavy compared to the general PvP community) and Pokket's legion pads up the republic numbers and brings in some good PvP action. All in all, if it wasn't for the cheesedick grating queues, I'd say we'd hit jackpot on server choice.

New members and Ranks
On another note.. many trial members will be promoted to full member (rank of Adept in game) in the coming week. Something we haven't really discussed is the rank of Chosen and what it means within the guild. Members that are dedicated to advancing the guild in content progression and domination in PvP will advance to the rank of Chosen. This is a bit of "at-a-boy(girl)" rank, but it will allow officers to quickly track the 110% committed members of the guild, and to know who to draw upon when shit needs to get done. Members will be reviewed and voted on just as a trail member, but with higher expectations. Adept will remain the rank of new full members and casual family/friends of the guild.

re: Queues....Settle Down Beavis

Yea ques suck just remember there are no ques from 7am to 4pm EST...after that expect the ques to get progressively worse. No need to overreact now, if this problem persists for another 2 - 3 months then we can discuss possibilities then. Good luck to all members for getting Chosen!

Hopefully things will even out in the near future... Some folks have chosen not to log out and others just log in when when they know queues are low. Eventually we will all get where we are going, and their are bound to be bumpy spots....

re: Queues....Settle Down Beavis

another great thing about our server is that we have one of the best E/R ratio's (empire to republic) among ALL of the swtor servers... what does this mean to you? it means that not only will we have fun and competitive world pvp, but we also get to enjoy both the Alderaan and Voidstar PvP zones, instead of just getting Huttball every fucking time! Many other servers have such a terrible E/R ratio that most of the time when you que up as Empire, all you get for your que pop is Huttball against another Empire team, becuz they is hardly any Republic queing up!

Yeah the que sucks, but we have MANY things to be stoked about with our server! A great faction balance, excellent pve progression guilds, a vibrant server economy and a server that is hopping 24/7! Stick it out and it will be a win for all of us! wink

re: Queues....Settle Down Beavis

I agree with all your observations and predictions man, Once again, I chose this guild to apply to because of the Server Alliance. Well that and laid back attitudes, desire to pwn, and your dirty minds.
haha i love it.

I am sure that you are right about everything. I have confidence in the leadership here that you are making the right call. So, I will suck it up knowing that the longevity will be worth it in the long run, but it doesn't make the T-bag job SWTOR is doing to us right now any easier.

"heh yeah queues suck, got any TP for my bunghole?"

you said "member"

Lots of good info here, and really cool to see the guild making use of the in-between ranks.

re: Queues....Settle Down Beavis

I Have my chick log me in when she gets home and turn my jump macro on my new razor keyboard. When I get home its usually hitting a wall in the cantina somewhere. Only time it gets me mad is when my game crashes......

And if your mouse/keyboard doesn't support macros, get autohotkey (free). Have it repeat one of your no cost abilities every minute or so. Cheat the system

re: Queues....Settle Down Beavis

SWTOR will be released in Australia & New Zealand in March (approx.) according to this official Dec. 21 post:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=574005#edit574005


As you can see in the post, Bioware will be working on solutions for current Oceanic players who wish to play on the official Oceanic servers when they are eventually launched.

I would guess that Oceanic players will be offered free transfers to their local servers. We shall see.

It's too bad Bioware is taking so long for Oceanic launch.

This is a pretty good blend of Star Wars and Full Metal Jacket
