Re: SWTOR

said by jofos:

But there's still a lot of people that they didn't transfer, me included. In all honesty this maybe the end of SWTOR for me. It just doesn't seem like Bioware ever really has a plan, they do something and wait and see what happens. Some times its oh, sometimes its OH SHIT!

You have to initiate it.

There are like 17 east pve servers that they haven't setup for transfer, I'm lucky enough to be on one. On a Saturday night at 8:30 cst there were 26 people on the imp fleet and 18 on the pub side. Hard to find groups for FP or to pvp. I waited in the que for pvp for about 45 minutes not real fun. They are looking at the data from the weekend for the tranfers they did so they can figure out what to do with the people that they left out. This seems more of an oh shit than a simple oh.

Ahhh I gottcha. Sorry you have to wait longer. It is quite nice though after the fact. The transfer to servers are jam packed.

Let's just hope they don't overdo it. A couple of guildies who transferred yesterday ended up queuing to log on (only about a minute but still). Too much sometimes is worse than not enough!

Liking it so far; I'm on The Bastion, so there's still no queue currently.

This game will have some longevity when dungeon finder is released, IMO.

*sigh*

Looks like the more populated servers are actually making things worse because now we're facing really bad server-side lag while we're raiding.

Last couple of nights in Denova we got stuck on Kephess, a VERY mechanics-based fight, because we kept getting lag spikes which made it impossible to move to the correct locations throughout the fight.

This doesn't bode well...

Now that 1.3 has hit it's not getting any better. Lag is at an all-time high and we're getting logon queues in the evening.

It's like EA WANTS people to get pissed off and quit the game.

They added LFG and combined servers to fix low populated server issues and people still complain; imagine that. Give them time to balance out the lag issue with the huge population surge on some servers.

They didn't have to go from 500 servers to 3 in one week (exaggeration, but barely) after making us wait 6 months.

Proper issue management would go a long way in reducing negative feedback.

But then again, it's EA we're talking about here. Ignoring the issue as long as they can then overreacting when it blows out of proportion is par for the course.

This is not a complaint this is fact... that LFG thing is HORRID.

You can only Q up for stuff that is in your level range (which is dumb if I want to run Black Talon (or some other FP which is NOT in my level range at the moment)).

And you can't Q up for Heroics!!!!!! Just for "planet" Qs.

I don't know that's wrong with you but I can queue for hard modes. You have to be lvl 50 for hard modes and there might be a gear check involved as well.

...and what is it that I cannot read, pray tell?

Between your inability to use proper English and your confusion about the features of the game you're commenting on (there is no "heroics" in SWTOR) I do admit I had to make a good measure of interpretation but that's hardly my fault now is it?

play nice people....

Anyway what bigred is talking about is the heroic +2s and +4s. While this and issue to a point imagine if you qued for a specific heroic on balmora, I think there's about 8 of them, it would be worse. The way it is you que and quest on whatever planet and when you get a group if you don't have the quest for the one you got asked someone to share the quest.
LFG still has some issues but its a good start. There will be some level ranges that have longer wait times than others and dps will have longer waits than tanks and healers but it is a step in the right direction. The biggest thing that would make group finder better is if more people would start using it.

The problem is you can't q up for anything BUT for what your level is...

I mean I have done every quest and bonus series and that tends to make you overleveled for a planet so you can't even q up for the planet.
