I would love  to see Joe actually making a rant about this new Game, well is not new it came out in 2011 and until now was released to North America and Europe in January 19th, 2016.

This a Martial Art, eastern style MMORPG and it was advertised as Free To Play. However since release NA/EU as expected every new plataform to be released is going to have some difficulties, errors, etc But what is occurring to the game is beyond wrong. And it looks like Corporate Make his return with this franchise and here is why. You have the "option" to play the game for free or be a Premium. In this game for some reason servers are limited to a certain amount of Player at one giving time. Which mean in order to enter to Play the game you are placed on a Queue. That is assuming you were able to install the game in the first place since i myself was able to install it in my low-end computer and not in my newer one for that ungodly launcher that can install its own dll.

So even if you are Premium you have to be Placed on a Queue and Non Premium player were placed on a secondary queue that is corrupt. It will tell you there are 1000 people on queue an you are 150 and you have an estimated wait time of 15 min and you will have that message for another 2 hours since Premium are getting Priority and they kept signing in and since its a new game everyone is having disconnects. You read that right DISCONNECTS which if you were in queue good luck getting back in to it. 

Now that does not mean Premiums are getting all the good stuff. Here is an example of what i mean:

Obviously not every server has the same wait time but the problem is that you already have your character in one server and even if you change what is the guarantee you are not getting in the same problem. Oh and wait there is more oh no! Corporate want your fucking money!!!!! hahah There are 4 option for premium. 7 days, 30 days, 90 days and 365. Now you know what is funny the 90 days is like $35.00 which at this point is must to have Premium just to even think about getting in the game. 

 

Now Congratulations!!! you thought you made it to this Booner creator and god damn nice looking ladies, booby dancing! junk shaker female characters well no. Due to the amount of player getting into the game and the restriction of # players the servers keep crashing almost every day since release. Its expected? yes it is, Are they doing something about it? They are adding more servers that should be there in the first place. Is that improving queue times? no because everyone is Premium and this is getting worse by the day. 

Quite long isn't it? well i have more. Since the only people in this game that are truly enjoying this game are the gold sellers and spam bot! The spam in every single Chat, Normal, Faction, Party Finder chat, Region and you know what is the worst you can only block a maximum of 50 character. I'm already at maximum because this game is spam heaven!

Here is why people are so exited about this game:

They do have an amazing art style and graphics, The gameplay is wonderful! Heavy clases like the Destroyer block attacks passibly and they are the only class in game that can actually grab a boss and do as you wish with it, Blade Master is the best blocking/defense class in the game. Kun Fu Master can dodge attacks passibly and by skills Q and E for example, Force Master is like your Wizar/Elemental Class, etc. every single class seems to be balance and this game has one of the best PvPs however if you look at the forums you will see a lot of people complaining that is to easy or too difficult since people can one shot you. Well duh! some of us have playing this game for years and we know what soul shield to equip and we know the class perfectly compared to some one who just got in to game, please!!!!

I love Joe's reviews to the point that if he doesn't approve a game I wont be buying because i agree with his point of view. I would love to see he reviews this game because there is a ton load of people upset about the current situation.  Anyway my suggestion to you all of you are interested in the game. Just wait and do not purchase Premium account as we are all facing the same problems at the moment as non premium player are. 

 

Thank you all! Have a nice day/night!

 

PD: I'm sorry for my grammar! ESL

Um... This isn't a new concept. This is also a new MMO. In this part of the world, anyway. 

There's queues in every MMO that has servers. This is not new. It's also not new for premium members in any MMO to get priority in the queues. Because they paid for that privilege. If you're playing the game for free, you pay your price by having to wait longer in queues, having to deal with freemium bullshit, ect. Nothing is truly free. 

As to the long queues? There's lots of people playing, because it's new and it's novel. The same thing happened with Wildstar when it went free-to-play. It'll die down over time, especially since Blade and Soul is pretty painfully mediocre. I don't expect the queues will stay long for very long, if you'll pardon that double use of the word. 

You're either very new to playing MMO's or you get angry easily. No offense, but this is all pretty run-of-the mill stuff for an MMO on launch week/month, especially if it's F2P. I'd personally be more upset over the lack of a coherent story and the lackluster gameplay.

Yep pretty much the truth and yet i didnt even mention much of gameplay since that is a different topic. Then thing is i get the F2p model however if the queues are going down eventually what is the benefits to get premium in the first place? And i totally agree with there is a lack of coherent story and they gameplay could be improved. I'm not new to MMOs is just watch GW2 for example is a F2p that does not have any queue times, server bots, spam (it does but not as bad). Now lets check other client, when  BnS was launched in China they were overload by the amount of player but they increased the server cap and added more server immediately. In a matter of day the game was settled and i was able to play with no issues other than ping of course. But my point is they released the game is so many regions but here in NA/EU we were charged a premium fee and at this point in the game you either a pay to play or don't get to play at all witch is unfair for a game advertised as free to play. At the end of the day you might be right! i might get angry very easily but pardon me is just upsetting to see a game that is 4 year old to go right for our pockets! well being angry is what make me follow Angry Joe hahaha!

They're not going to increase server cap, I'd wager, because they know that outside the initial surge because 'Oh hey new MMO" they're not gonna have a huge fanbase in the US of A outside of people who eat up eastern culture stuff like candy. That's my guess. 

Outside that, it's just a case of shrugging and going "Well what can ya do". NCsoft isn't the greatest company, but there's other companies much more deserving of hatred.

SWTOR has the same policy, but I've never in my time playing seen the servers get so full that it's an issue.  Also, GW2 even got swamped when it went F2P, but since anet has the megaserver thing, they don't need queuing.  ArcheAge also had login queues, and that game I did walk away from partially because of that, but I didn't like that game enough to endure the queues.

 

And yeah, as Demonbane says, you pay to keep the lights on = you get to login sooner.
