    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.

    So now I have to wait for however long it takes to get into a game I pay for? It certainly isnt the 30 seconds its says on my screen as I have been waiting almost ten minutes now. Seriously if this company expects to keep people paying for this game it needs to upgrade it servers urgently.

    Happend too with WoW. Be glad they do it this way, instead of letting the server crash every 2 minutes. Pc masterrace eh?

    This is absurd. Massive influx my ass. I have never encountered this in my 5 years of playing this game, and the population now is certainly not the highest it's ever been. Please stop feeding us ***.

    By the way, great way to celebrate your 5 year anniversary. Cheers.

    Though there is really no way to tell with the flexible instance mega server system they have, it does seem unlikely to me that this is the highest population. The game certainly felt more populated at a few other times in it's past. Launch, Launch of console / 1.6, Summerset launch, and all the folks that came back for Wrothgar all spring to mind as times that were seemed more populated than this. For what it is worth, I'm sure Jessica is telling us what they have told her. Gina and Jessica do a great job, I just often think they get fed less than accurate information to pass along.

    Perhaps, there are more folks coming in now than the last few months and they had massively scaled back the servers. Certainly, the ever increasing load times of the game might suggest that. The computer I have now is many times as fast as the one I had at launch but I have timed the load times and they are much longer.

    It also seems likely to me that this is just all the spaghetti code catching up with them. I don't even think ZOS keeps an accurate master list of variables for the game as they keep accidentally reusing them and things like headless bodies running around in vMoL instead of orbs happen at exactly the time the hollowjack stuff comes out.

    Maybe ZOS should just handle this problem like the cheating problem and delete the threads that reference it with actual screenshots or videos as quick as they can, pretend those that mention it are having isolated issues with their own rigs or internet connections, and that this is all unrelated to ZOS's servers or code.

    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..

    subscribers shouldnt be put in queue

    No one should - we already pay for the game, for dlc in it. And for many other sruff in it. It is more better not to say who should and who should not - but problem must be removed. By the way i am eso + and want compensation too. I buy for time, to get better play and could not play. The same fir all players. We already buy the gameand could not play it. It is not working like it have too. It must be fixed !!!

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom
    Are paying ESO+ members prioritsed over non-paying players? I ask as surely they're the ones paying for your server capacity upgrade.

    If I have to guess at the answer, I would say "No". Seems to me that they said, at one point, that ESO Plus was not going to be a privileged thing.

    Granted, now they have exclusive and discounted Crown Store items, which would seem to challenge that statement.

    Anyway, my reason for thinking "No" to this is that this queue feature has been in the game for a long time now. I suspect that it was implemented at a time when ESO Plus would not have been a queue jumping criteria.
    Team Rigurt!

    Wow sorry EU player's. I know this just sucks and is really unacceptable by ZOS. I find hard to believe a sudden new number of players just appeared. Maybe over a month or so at best. Poor planning. A pattern has formed to where we do events and the servers are always not keeping up with demand.

    Good to see the game growing. Again just wow that that ZOS has allowed this to happen. I know after a few minutes of waiting I would just quit for and awhile and try later. If this become a pattern then I would stop playing for awhile. To the tune of months and cancel my sub in the mean time and maybe try again later if the urge kicked in to play again.

    It does not affect me on NA side but I find this truly acceptable.

    Yeah, I also find this hard to believe, especially when we've been reporting these issues since JANUARY and received no acknowledgement until this half-arsed panicked "fix". It's sad to think about it, but the plain honest truth is that I'm now convinced ZOS are lying or grossly misrepresenting the facts, e.g. the influx of new players has been going on for much longer and they've done nothing to address it until now.

    Being Xbox na I can't help but wonder how much of your population are bots(we're infested with them it seems but I don't know how bad it is on eu servers) We also had several issues with logging in, getting kicked etc before the crown store release that were put on a backburner for said New feature, so hopefully you'll get a fix before elsewhere. Be a shame though if bots are logged in while players can't.

    Well the queue limiting number of players did nothing for the guild bank and guild store issues, so clearly the issue with them is not just the amount of use!

    I suggest all EU players create characters on NA and see how the server handle it by creating a big prime time on NA, we would at least have a good idea of where the issue is.

    Sad indeed my time is precious and I don't want to waste it queuing for a game I have paid for and supported these past 5 years. Guess all I can do in protest is cancel my eso+ until this issue is resolved.

    This is a joke, there shouldnt be any queue. if you introduce one on the ps4 you will loose at least one loyal customer. I hope eso+ members will at least get a priority queue. Seriously, this is an all time low for the game, cant believe it.

    So, two thing :

    1 - It's a pretty good news for ESO to have a new flux of fresh player, most of MMORPG just don't have that anymore.
    2 - Server in EU are a problem since a long time and it should have been fixed since awhile !
    Now, you can just blame yourself if player, no, CUSTOMER, are pissed off to pay for a very bad service during many month.
