Server Login Queue Turned on for PC-EU - April 10

    Recently, we’ve seen a massive influx of players to ESO especially on the PC-EU server. This influx of players has resulted in some server performance issues for our players on the PC-EU megaserver, especially during prime-time hours. As a short-term solution to address these issues, we are turning on a login queueing system for that server.

    Set in place to create an optimal player experience for our ESO fans playing on the PC-EU server, this queueing system allows for a set number of players to be in the game at a time. Players waiting in the queueing system will be able to enter the game as soon as a spot opens up. (Please note that while your queue position is accurate, your estimated on-screen wait time may not reflect your actual wait time.)

    We’re currently working on plans that will add more capacity for our growing PC-EU community, making it possible for many more heroes to jump in and play simultaneously without hindrance to the overall PC-EU server performance. We’ll keep everyone updated. Welcome to all our new and returning players, and thank you all for your patience.

    More new players!?? How awesome is this?

    So the "Dead game" is growing so fast the servers need to be given a boost to keep up? How cool is THAT!! :)

    Thank you for the heads up! :)

    This is Very good for the game but also the server queue is unexeptable thing for MMO game 5 years old...

    Wow, normally i am not someone who comes up with crazy theories but i doubt that we got more players in EU.

    Its more likely they keep reducing server capativities and come up with this lazy excuse...

    I do not agree on this... yesterday when i logged in... i said to myself... wow, that is a lot of people online... and also, recently you can see players everywhere...

    So there must be some more players in game..

    well are there more players becaus emor eppl started playing the game, or are there more players cause the different instances get reduced, ergo playercount increases on existing instances?

    As a follow up, I don't think that deteriorating code base is main thing to blame for this calamity, but I also, like many others, don't believe the tales about "massive influx of players to ESO", that's just marketing embellishments. I suspect it's simply the anniversary time when everyone's in hurry to hunt for (otherwise expensive) motifs, rare materials, aetheric ciphers and other goodies from the reward boxes - so the peak load is much higher during the event as everyone's compelled to log in every day and spend more time in-game doing various kinds of dailies. There is a drawback to incentivizing people to do more daily grind.

    Also, to folks mentioning the on-demand scaling - nope, I suspect ESO server is a mess that doesn't support that. Sure, a modern software system would react to a spike of load by bringing up more instances and distributing the load between them, but I don't think that five years ago anyone thought about that in advance.

    This is incentive to keep subbing and buying crown store crap?

    If they would have spent the time to fix or upgrade the servers when people intially reported problems, would we be here now?

    Finally we will get an hardware upgrade let's hope is not just capacity but performance as well.

    Just got in after what felt like at least 15 mins of that "approximately 30 seconds" message staring back at me. The lag while doing crafting writs was at least as bad if not worse than it was yesterday.

    "Set in place to create an optimal player experience for our ESO fans playing on the PC-EU server"

    I guess your idea of optimal is a little lower than mine. -_-

    Also those are not just ESO "fans" these are Zos customers. Downplaying like that is an insult not only to the paying customers, but to the core business 101.

    I think this will just be the last nail in the coffin for many people.

    We have been complaining for months about EU server issues and nothing was done and no one from ZOS even bother to aknowlegde our concerns and now all of a sudden is because there are too many players? Really?

    What happened on that extendend maintenance in January and the day the server died? We got another long maintenance this week and another extra maintenance the day after and it seems they only made the server worse... I mean wth is happening? I don't really buy their explanation but whatever this is something we will never know for sure.

    Awesome way to celebrate 5 years anniversary!

    My account has just resubbed aswell, automatically, Expect a chargeback because there is one incoming from my bank, when i pay for goods i expect to be able to use them, your TOS means TOSH where the distanace selling act is concerned.
    Hi all, we've removed the erroneous mention of a queue position in the original message - thanks for pointing that out. We know you have questions, and we will have a more detailed (and technical) explanation for you tomorrow. As mentioned in the original message, the queue is a temporary solution that we've turned on (we've had the queueing system tech for years) while we prepare the more permanent long-term solution.

    The trouble is, everything that Zo$ does is a temporary solution, witrh no permanant solution. How on earth do you people keep your jobs? Because its clearly not performance related.

    Prepare to have your account banned.

    I find hard to believe a sudden new number of players just appeared.

    The motif giveaway (Anniversary box event) is the most popular of the events. Lots of people come back from hiatus to play it, and the crafting part of it is the most popular. Look for population to drop slightly for the next three weeks (especially PvP week), and resurge for the final week. Then after the event the game will look empty again.

    It only really kicks in when there's more than x players online. Check during prime time and you'll probably see it.
