ArenaNet President Mike O’Brien posted a collection of charts showing the queue size of each map for a given world. These charts are for the North American and European worlds (this data was collected from 8:00PM Sept 14th to 9:30PM Sept 18th).
We thought these charts would be useful information for people to see, as it helps illustrate why some worlds have much longer waits than others. Hopefully it will also help some people decide to leave some of those higher population worlds for one of the worlds with smaller (or no) queues, which would reduce the queue pressure on the overloaded world and help provide more manpower for the smaller world.
Some other information we gathered from this timespan:
– Almost 30% of the total players who logged into the game queued up for WvW
– About 3% of the total players who logged in and queued never got in.
We’re completely ecstatic about the first number and not happy at all about the second. We’re looking at a number of short term and long term solutions that should help make that second number go down even if the first one goes up. As we make progress on those solutions we will keep you updated.
