    People complain the game lost it's attractiveness... and now it has regained it (my guild have more online people than ever), we're complaining about the consequences... I'm not sure Zenimax anticipated this popularity boost. Should I mention that recent GW2 dark future perspective (due to Arena.net firing people), SWTOR uncertain, WOW getting old, ESO ever evolving with nice new content regularly and now a plan to have year long episodes...

    I'll only say they should have anticipated it... Maybe should they move on Amazon AWS or try to find another operator their current one? Not German but French maybe? :P

    I wonder if the login queue works as smoothly as the dungeon finder/bg queue.

    I have the same problem entering battleground is nearly impossible.

    Still congratulations to ZOS for the new record playerbase this is a good way to celebrate 5 years. The server need some serious power up at this point.

    Why cant EU have the same hardware as NA?

    Because who cares about EU

    I do. i like having people playing in different parts of the world. As for the answer to the person you quoted, pretty much the same reason why they have to upgrade the hardware for EU. Player capacity. Instead of a portion of the player base being affected it would be all of the players everywhere. Most companies can't support that many simultaneous users and have any kind of viable functionality, even your multinational mega corps. Millions of people are playing at any given time, and current tech would need military level hardware to support that many at one time. Private sector doesn't often have that kind of capital. So they break it down into smaller chunks of users that their infrastructure can support and still work. Welcome to networking technology basics in a nutshell.

    Thanks for the communication! Don’t play on EU but I for one do appreciate being kept in the loop! Glad to hear we are getting an influx of new players!

    Wait, so EU has to try get passed a (bugged queue) during the ENTIRE 5th anniversary event, probably till release of Elsweyr or so, because ZOS runs a mmo but doesnt have a clue how to fix hardware for more players??

    i bet if one account is created on US server, someone calls a tech dude downstairs and he plugs in hardware to provide for 2 players, just to be sure

    Additional comment:

    Governments can throw billions at military networks and technology and infrastructure thereof. Most private companies might be able to afford a few hundred thousand at the top tier. Often not even that. So funding becomes a limitation as much as technology does.

    The issue for me is it’s taken player reports of getting this for you to tell us about this. Why can’t this have been communicated to at least set expectations?

    Tonight we had 4 disconnects and then those people were stuck in a queue. That’s really poor!

    Will this make you re-think events in future as well? Whether it’s PVP, Dungeon related or crafting writs everything seems to break the game with EU being impacted the most. I’d happily leave events out the plan for a while and have a stable and usable game.

    Does this also explain Error 307 Booted from Server and then unable to login again as all you get is Error 307 Booted from Server?

    At the very least ESO Plus Subscribers should get priority in the queue (if they aren't already) until you guys can sort this out. This is a common thing other F2P MMO's that have multiple servers do.

    I'm not subbed. that would make me quit 100%
