Brother Vataro I would love to sign your charter and join the ranks, but my queue time says I can't. :(

I'm in pos 352 with about 2 hours left. I'd say given the progress, I'd be in within the hour.

Yeah...it's in to late evening and I'm still looking at a 2hour-ish wait anytime I want to log in. I think I'll be waiting until there's more servers and the load gets spread around more before rolling a character on Lotham, sadly. =/ Hopefully it'll ease down in a day or so.

Haven't had luck logging into the server so far so I just temporarily rolled on another server to get some playing time in, then hopefully get on Lotham tomorrow.

Y herro thar gusy!

I wonder if I can log on to NA servers. It did ask me what area I preferred when I first started the game and mentioned I could change this preference in the Options thing.

I think you are referring to posts, in which case you have the requisite 5 and can hit up Allegory or me (and maybe even Bamf, aka Kturner) in game for an invite.

You should be able to play on NA servers.

Grrr! I was in the queue today for like 55 mins then my comp crashed and am waiting again. :( been 30 or so minutes now with 20 left. I think ima really QQ if I crash or reset the timer somehow.
#74 Mar 01 2011 at 9:45 PM Rating: Good
when I came home from work, I started the Q..I must have bad luck XD
After almost 2 hours I gave up :3
Maybe I should log in before I goto work..and hope there is no server shut down for anything..and when I get home I'll be good to go!

Do none of you have work computers? Remote desktop and get in the queue before you leave :P

I guess I've been fairly lucky with the ques. Today I got about a 20 minute wait.

I'm thinking the queues will die down as time goes on, but I've been trying to think up a few temporary solutions until then. Remote desktop is one of the easiest ways. Even if you can't install much on work computers there are still apps for phones that let you use remote desktop.

For those of you finding the queue especially painful, let us know what you have to work with and we'll see if we can't find a workaround.

When I got home yesterday near 6 CST, I only had to wait in the queue for 20 mins. I find that reasonable, and I know that within a few weeks the queue should disappear entirely. Like Al said though, if some of you are hitting harder queues we can try to figure something out.

As much as I love Warhammer, it's just one rattling gasping breath away from death. So, I think I'll try rift (pvp games require some peeps to battle with).

This thread is a fricken mess! From skimming it I've been able to surmise that the Alla guild is playing on Lotham and that the que times are long. Is this about right?

A couple quick questions:

Is Lotham a pvp or pve server?

What's the Alla guild called?

Are there requirements, or complicated application procedures to join the Alla guild?

How long are the ques?

Are there any other Alla-like guilds about?

PvP.

The Fifth Star

As you should have read, there is the initiation involving yak's blood, but other than that no.

How long are the ques?
Varies based on when you're joining. From what I've seen in this thread the longest queue times as of late (meaning yesterday, 4th/5th day of the game) was 2 hours. It can be lower, and probably will decline as time goes on. Additionally there are options to help you managed the queue.

Are there any other Alla-like guilds about?
The staff have rolled another Alla guild on a PvE server. I'm not sure if that is what you're asking.

the queue when i get home is around 200, and its been on a decline. It's also not that queue that causes me problems because i can log in and then take care of stuff around the house while i wait. its getting up for dinner, getting the kid ready for bed, coming down to play for 1.5 hours and seeing a 1 hour queue that causes me problems.

Do you share a comp with the wife? If not, you should hop in the queue / stay logged in before going to dinner / etc.

As Al said, it's PvP. We are <The Fifth Star>, and the requirement as stated in the OP is that you must have at least 5 posts on Alla. Congratulations, you qualify! Queues range from about 150 people (20-30 minutes) around 6pm CST to up to 400 (1.5 hours) during more peak hours (weekends, later in the evening). However, I fully expect the queue to be almost completely gone within a couple weeks. If you want to monitor the queue to see what it's like at a given time, go here: http://www.riftstatus.com/index.php?region=NA . There is some other guild on a PvE server that a few of the admins here are in, but they are unimportant.

There are ways to deal with that. A simple circle run might work, because the gmae might be detecting your corner run as standing in one place.

A slightly more complicated way is to use a program like AutoHotkey to set yourself up a slightly more varied loop of running forward, running backward, opening up your bag, jumping. That should pretty much guarantee you stay logged in.

If you'd be interested in trying that let me know and I willI'll have Electroxity write you a simple script for it.

Why does the Alla guild thread not get shuffled off to the guild forum?

Cool that I got the post count requirement met. I was worried about an age restriction;)

Weird. I've only tried it once myself (2-3 days ago) and it worked fine... maybe I got lucky? Or maybe it just extends the time at first and not indefinitely (I was only gone for ~45 minutes)?

So I have more than 150 heavy leather. Electroxity has already outleveled it I believe, so I wanted to see if there were any other outfitters in the guild who could use it.
