Last week we chronicled the issues of the Aradune progression server, which faced some massive queue problems at launch. About a week’s worth of time has seen things get a bit more stable, however, according to some community responses to a Reddit post about where to hop in to the game from level one.
“Aradune just came up a week ago and restricts people to 2 characters (you still see 6 boxers though, but a lot less),” reads one reply. “There are thousands of players leveling up at all level ranges right now.”
Another reply to that same thread actually warned to stay away from Aradune and join in on Mangler:
“Many of us have been doing the TLP server thing for a while. I myself am tired of the rat race, as I am sure others are as well. Every time a new TLP server comes out, it becomes exactly this. You miss out on what made EQ so nice in the first place. It’s every man for themselves, you’ll see the mass of Krono farmers that transitioned from Mangler to Aradune, cut throat style.”
In any event, it would appear that queue issues are all but forgotten, with players now setting up Aradune raid Discords. That said there are still at least one or two weird crashes happening. If you’ve been having a better (or worse) experience, feel free to share it with us and our readers.
