amazon at their best, making sure everyone get the New world experience.
their big solution will be to add more servers, instead they could just increase the capacity. would save a lot of time and hassle of server merges/ transfers etc later on down the line. but that would be too easy for them.
I’m not expecting anything from the game, it will most likely flop like new world but i do agree queue times are ridiculous and need to be fixed. they still haven’t gotten it into their minds that people coming from other games will be coming with their guild members who want to play together, not split over the 5 servers with little queue times
Yeah - started with 21k+ queue at approx 1.20pm UK time. Now at 15k+ as I write this. At least I am in a queue - people are now being kicked to join the said queue as servers are bursting at the seams. Cannot even queue for the queue lol.
You seriously don’t think they’re trying to get the servers up? Please tell me you don’t honestly think they’re purposefully dragging their feet.
Those 21,000 people in queue are unable to access the shop and spend money. They have an financial incentive to get everyone into the game. Heck even if you aren’t spending money directly, they want you in the game so you can farm the gold and sell that gold for the blue crystals to people who do spend money.
Amazon isn’t sitting around twiddling their thumbs. They’re working on it. They want your money/time. They’ll fix it. It’s in their interest to do so.
People could spend at max, $200 on founder packs. People can spend way more than that on the cash shop items. Please don’t be so ignorant to think they only wanted folks to spend money on the founder packs.
You’re right, publisher is what I really should have been written. That is Amazon Game Studios. This kind of excellent publicity tends to stick to the name. I will remember and associate the name Amazon with smooth MMO-starts for the rest of my life. Kinda helps me when making decisions like choosing between Amazon services and alternatives from other companies
