Login Queue - Explained

  • Recently, there has been an increase in conversation about the login queues experienced on the PBE. I’d like to take some time to explain why you are experiencing these longer-than-normal queues.

    The PBE server is a test environment used to collect feedback and bug reports for content before releasing it to the live servers. We intentionally keep the server much smaller than our other environments so that we can ensure the PBE does not become a place for people to come to get free content. However, when new content is released, people naturally flock to the PBE to test it out. This causes a login queue to form when we get more players attempting to login than what we have space for.
    As long as people aren’t logging off, the login queue will remain stagnant and this is why many of you get stuck in a specific position for extended time periods.

    Additionally, you may have noticed that the timer on the login queue is not accurate. This is because the timer is designed for predicting how long the wait would be on a live server which is significantly larger. It is not tuned to reflect the wait on the PBE which exhibits different login behaviour.

    While I understand that this may be frustrating for many of you, please continue to be patient in your attempt to log in. We may choose to grow the server in the future but we currently believe that improving the quality of the PBE is a higher priority. With the large number of complaints about leavers and trolls, we’d hate to simply increase the population on the PBE without doing something to curtail the problem.


    TL;DR: The login queue is large because of increased interest in the PBE. The timer does not accurately relay your wait time.

    I have replied to a couple of threads about that. We know about the issue and we are looking into it.
