So Neverwinter, the MMO, not the awesome D&D game, just entered open beta yesterday. I'm not a big MMORPG player but since I love the setting of Faerun I decided to check this game out. I've played for like 2 hours and it seems like your standard MMORPG.
Anyway once I was done with the character creation I attempted to play the game and I had to wait in queue. Since I didn't spend a single cent on the game yet I didn't really have a problem with it and even if I had I'm still a patient guy and I understand that the game is F2P and in open beta so a lot of people will be trying to play it. But who knows, maybe I'd be just pissed as hell if I had. Anyway the people did not take the waiting well. And the waiting can take quite a while, I've waited for around 40 minutes or so with some people saying that they've waited for hours.
The people who are complaining about the queue are the guardians who payed 60$ for the guardian pack. They're complaining because the people who bought the Heroes of the North pack for 200$ get priority when waiting in queue. The guardian pack has nothing in it for the priority in queue.
The guardians proceeded to complain about everything from freeloaders such as myself to the people who payed 200$ and get a queue priority.
So again, are these valid complaints? Guardians obviously payed for the game and I think they should get to wait less than those who didn't pay a dime, and yet the guardian pack offered nothing that would make them wait less.
And seriously, give that queue thread a read. It exploded from like 7 pages yesterday evening to now where it has 170+ pages.
