Let the QUEs begin!

I guess I should have expected it to happen. Back when AQ opened up and raiding sparked a whole new life to the game, our ques were sometimes 10 minutes long. We're a medium pop server so we're just not used to having ques. After the raiding game kind of died, the ques died with it.

Now that BC is only 12 days away, the ques are starting back up. This Saturday when we tried to log in, I remember hearing Taint yell "WTF!!!??? There's a que!!!" Since then, every time I have logged in, there has been a que. Luckily at this point, they don't last longer than a 3 minute wait. I suspect this number will grow as the day between now and BC grow shorter.

I don't blame the renewal of log-ins and account activations. I'm already getting that headrush I got in November back when we all thought it was coming out Nov 28. It's odd really. I used to kind of have this feeling before Christmas when I was a kid. That subtle stir of excitement in your heart..the anticipation...the last time I felt something like this was waiting in line to see Star Wars Episode I, Phantom Menace. AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT TURNED OUT! :P

I'm hoping I won't be disspaointed like that ever again.

So, how many of us will be standing in lines (late for work or class) at the Game Stop, Best Buy, or Fry's on the morning of the 16th because we all PRE-ORDERED our copes of BC? :D I know I will.

Oh, and don't try to fool yourself into thinking you won't be waiting in a 400 que to get on your server that day. This is going to be huge!

12 more days!!!

I don't think I am even going to try to mess with it that day...I will probably amuse myself with the items in the LE package that night and then mess around with the fllowing day...

Of course, it would take a chinese gold farmer to get my lv 38 butt up to 60 by then...so much of the new content is out for me, unless I roll a new toon...

...not that there will be any lag in the BE and Dranai starting areas...oh no...

I'm playing the odds big time, I haven't pre-ordered it yet...ugh...I'll be the idiot that gets it on the 18th...figures...work all day and no wow makes jason a dull boy.

Maybe I'll go tonight, if it's not too late...nooooo!

I am on Kael'Thas and we have been having queues as well. I blame it on folks who got the game for Christmas.

I started when my realm was just a few days old so have never had problems with queues.

Fortunately, as you said, they are very short. But it still surprises me to find myself on a "high pop" server.

Scarlet Crusade already has a 500+ queue now.

Phantom Menace was not THAT bad...check out the Holiday Special if you really want to see the franchise at its worst...

Leia messed up on Ludes...and SINGING...I'll take Jar-Jar...

In fact, DON'T watch the special...you might miss some paint drying...
