Blade & Soul plans new servers to combat queues

The good news is that Blade & Soul is turning out to be pretty popular here in the west. The bad news is that Blade & Soul is turning out to be pretty popular here in the west, to the point that the servers are straining to contain all of you.

“With such a successful reception of the Blade & Soul launch, our servers have begun overflowing with players who are excited to jump into The Earthen Realm,” NCsoft community rep Rukkiri told forumgoers this evening. “Our servers are reaching their maximum capacity and many players are waiting in queues at this time.”

The company says it has “significantly raised the maximum capacity of [its] servers” and “restricted character creation on servers as needed” to balance the servers. A round of server transfers ended earlier today as well. Idlers, you’ll be kicked from the game now thanks to a new hotfix, so if you need to AFK to pee, pee quickly. New servers are on the way too:

“Finally, we’ve been working to open new servers as quickly as possible, and the servers are expected to be available in the next 48 hours. For those of you who have yet to start playing, or those of you who wouldn’t mind starting over, it can be expected that wait times on them may be a bit shorter. We’ll have more details on server names and the downtime schedule as soon as possible.”

Necromonger Shamancard are you implying that either one of these two games won’t have gold selling bots?

KevinSmith11 I played GW2 at its launch and now I won’t do silly things like, say, pay a subscription to bypass a login queue that  shouldn’t exist in the first place.  Only if more players would call the devs out on this issue then perhaps we can get new games that don’t rely on outdated methods to deal with player congestion.

TrueGamer99 Styopa A Dad Supreme Fair enough, everyone has their comfort point.  Like I said, I’m basically stingy, but $5 is below my disposable point.  That coffee typically wouldn’t last me the time I’m waiting for the bloody queue, so that’s how I rationalize it. :)

Styopa TrueGamer99 A Dad Supreme That’s logical and $5 is really nothing to me as well, but at the same time, I’m not just going to throw money away for a game I probably won’t end up playing for very long, even if I could actually log in to play it. I’ll wait until the feeding frenzy fades and then check it out.

captainzor I don’t. This is typical for new MMOs. On launch there are a billion people and it dies off after a month or two. Because this is such a normal trend, developers hesitate to include too many servers because they know they will eventually take them offline or merge them.

Styopa I feel on you on the sexist stuff but that’s their culture. That’s what the men AND the women like so it’s hard to knock it really.

I regret updating yesterday since the game didn’t seem to want to force me to. After waiting for over 2hrs in the queue I decided to just go to bed. It logged me in at some point during the night and I stayed logged in all day while at work. Finally got to play some after but I rebooted my computer to fix some driver issues with my gamepad. I should have just stuck with the keyboard and mouse because when I went to log back in….2hr queue again. This is one of the few times I really don’t blame people for just going AFK. Nothing is worse than waiting months or years for a game and when it finally comes you’re stuck in queues for hours at a time, limiting how long you can play.
