Remember that ultra-casual MMO that just came out? Hey turns out more people queue up for the PvP in that game than the number of people who raided in WoW (by % of the population). Who could have predicted that? Answer: Not Anet. Whoops.
And hey, it’s not like a queue of 300 or 400 people is that bad anyway. Oh right, only 100 people get in at a time, so a queue of 3x or 4x the total size might be a problem. From personal experience it makes setting up a guild night of WvW a blast…
That said, I’m sure it will get better once everyone hits 80, because at that point you have access to the wonderful world of GW2 dungeons. Wait what? Everyone hates your dungeons and is doing anything possible to skip them while you do everything possible to stop them, even while at the same time you acknowledged that the rewards suck? Whoops x2.
The good thing is Anet planned ahead, and allowed anyone who wanted to bandwagon on the winning side to do so for free, which I’m sure is making everyone on HoD really happy. But hey, please transfer off a server with coordinated WvW and derp around with the derps near the bottom. Instance derp access everyone!
I’m sure tons of guilds are going to take Anet up on that offer, especially considering the amount of effort that went into setting up servers like HoD and JQ in the first place. Silly us for thinking Anet planned ahead for people playing their endgame in a game that almost instantly puts you at endgame and gives you basically nothing else to focus on (playing Barbie is not doing it for PvP players, weird).
