Dystopia DPandaren CastagereShaikura No slight to TESO, its a solid game but you didnt see near the volume of hits on the login server due to the business model. TESO is NOT F2P is B2P. You still have to buy the main game to try it out. This alone will cut down the number of curious folks. Granted I like this payment model far more. With F2P you get a lot of sure why not lets check this out as there is zero barrier to entry thus a whole lot more folks trying to log in and hammer the login servers

ManastuUtakata In Thayd there is a female Mordesh standing under the tent by the rune machines up in the crafting area. :)

It’s weird, just like people complaining about poor performance of the game client in the months gone by, I never experienced it and always had a nice, steady 50-70 FPS with decent latency (240ms). In comes the patch, my FPS has gone up, averaging 90+ FPS in most zones with 60 odd in the cities and my latency has dropped to 210-220ms and I haven’t seen a single queue or had a disconnect or anything.
Oh, and mouse look is amazing, so is the absolute tonne of cosmetic stuff and the boosts given to me. Love it.

ManastuUtakata Check your mail, a lot of my gear got mailed to me due to the changes.

Since I have been able to get in straight away, I assume these queue issues are only for non-subscribers?

DPandaren CastagereShaikura TESO had maybe the best F2P trasition I ever saw in this genre. Apart from Cyrodiil everything was running smooth from the start of F2P.

DPandaren ihatevnecks Yeah I’ve definitely got plenty of other things to play in the meantime, so not in any real rush. Just find the connection drops whenever I start running that patcher to be really odd.

Actually Mr. wolfyeyes was telling ingame about these armor token thingies that come with the mats sent back to you, that you can turn in somewhere to get comparable armor back. Unfortunately, he was to look into as to where to turn those in, and I think his internet decided to have a meltdown. So I never got to know which NPC to approach. :(

annoyedbadger Robert80 So you log on the one time you know will have servers being swamped and come here to get all superior about only giving games one chance.

I give people only one chance to impress me….We can see where I’m going here.

ihatevnecks I would probably either run the update super early in the morning for your region or wait a week or two to wait for things to settle a bit. It’s just rough right now because they’re getting hammered in a manner that’s similar to a DDoS attack. Which is just a thing that happens sometimes. 

I mean, remember Health.gov being garbage? kekekekek.
