I played it for a little bit earlier today, it's fun - I like the combat, it's the kind of combat I enjoy in MMO's nowadays.

I don't agree with all of the changes - they did americanize/westernize a fair amount of the games mythology, when I really wanted to play more into the wuxia/asian style fantasy and different origins for mythology, i've also noticed they changed the overall story quite a bit in an attempt to 'simplify' it, which I think was a bad decision.

That queue though. If you don't have an elite subscription you are waiting upwards of an hour to play.

Game is awesome at times, but I don't like waiting and I'm saving my sub for Black Desert.

Oh, is that what the queue priority is? I thought it was for dungeons.

I logged in yesterday morning for maybe half an hour to design a character and see if the English story translation is as bad as I've heard. There wasn't any wait. I'm not sure if maybe I was one of the first, or picked a server without wait, or what.

B&S holds little appeal for me on its own. If other people were playing I might join, although with two hour queues I don't see how that could work.

I would be pretty salty if I paid for the game, and then had to queue to play it. Seeing as how I got it when I was getting a humble bundle for the reason of getting certain other games anyway, no biggie, but still...

I'm told that last night at 8 PM CST (2 AM GMT) Iksanum had a queue of around 2200 people.

This morning at 9 AM CST (3 PM GMT) there was no wait. I did a few quests and tanked Stalker Jiangshi for about 3-5 people at a time.

But the game launched just yesterday, right? Wait times will go down.

Last night at 8 PM the Poharan server had a queue for 4k people, 300 premium people. I waited 5ish hours just to log in and play.

I would definitely expect queues after 5 PM on weekdays.

ahahaha timing confuses me lols.
+8 GMT for me.
keep forgetting that US is a day behind and UK is about hours behind as well.

well there will be a queue until people stop rushing to level up. Just within two days for the closed beta test people already reached level 45.

Meanwhile I am here slowly running around at level 26. Ahahahaha.


Surprisingly even with the wait, no lag. I always assumed crowded servers means more lags.  :-[

I shouldn't have logged out yesterday night. Now not only am I last in queue but there are 900 over premium members waiting. The numbers are moving slower than the stock market. Now my wait time is 218 minutes. It is 11:11am here and it'll be the same like yesterday. To wait until like 2pm or 3pm before I can play. :'(

I have been in the process of logging in since 2 PM today, it's 11:30ish now and i'm in the same queue.

Not fun! The numbers are not going to last this long forever, but a 12 hour queue is painful.

When I first joined World Of Warcraft in 2004, there were wait queues sometimes of over 300 players, and I thought that was bad.  I've been trying to decide whether to pay for B&S or Black Desert, and I'm going for Black Desert.  A wait that long...ugh.

Thankfully we have subs now, so we get a super awesome dash animation and priority logins <3

The queue died down after the first week. Most people are in their cap level and doing E Fleet Supply and raising the market prices with their farming. X_X

But since I have a lot of assignments, I cannot play as much. On my second character now. Class: Summoner. A lot easier than my Force Master but I love my Force Master cuz of her attacks.


And I noticed even guys create female characters so the game is filled with female characters. :o WE NEED MORE GUY CHARACTERS!!!
