Ya that is what I have been doing the last days, queuing for ArcheAge. And I have given up too as I work and can only log in after work. When u log in and there is 5300 in queu… at least I give up ^^ But I managed to log in early morning 20 min before work and chop down some of my trees at least. Sadly, my progress is close to zero now as I cant log in much.
I have a subscription but so far patrons have been in the same queu as Free to play. But they promised to fix this tonight. The queues will go on, tho a bit lighter i hope. Cos as I understand it,they will let 1 f2p in after 2 patrons so the queues will still probably be a lot worse than in head start for at least a couple of weeks (guessing now). Patience….
A friend om mine managed to log in on release day and this is what happened to him. A total surprise (recorded automatically by his graphic card). Note the chat window, the person says “Welcome to ArcheAge”. He got a bit shaky, lol:
