I'm curious if the actual login's have the same info or if they collect data differently.

People have been saying the server status page is the total pop and the game login screen is the starter area pop.

 

All the servers were full earlier... this even has the crashed server and 2 servers with a heavy load... it's very accurate. Yes it is total server pop because most players moved beyond the starter choke point. I doubt 95% of players decided to log out for a 3 hour dinner all at the same time..

or they all hated the game so much so many got bored and quit:P pretty sure your explaination is more correct

 yup pick your poison... either I'm right and BW douche bagged it up by not understanding how servers work or this game is an epic fail and 90% of the players already quit.

So, your idea is that, this game which cost millions of dollars, and probably some very experienced programers and hardware guys doesn't understand servers OR the game is epic fail.  Doesn't pass the common sense test.  You've been spending a lot of capital on this thread in critizing, and it seems like you're trying a bit too hard.

Since none of us are on the inside, its mere speculation for speculations sake (and sowing the seeds of distrust) and all for naught.  Why do you care what the initial server populations are.  They are phasing in the players, so to expect everything to be maxed out is a bit naive.  Just enjoy it (If you have any intention of it)

 

They are coming for you!

Me too.. but the game tech doesn't launch till the 20th. I think they are being pretty cool and smart about everything. Its not just the servers they said. They also want to give people a chance to explore and level a little before letting more people in.

If we all logged in at the same time.. even without a queue it'd still be way crowded. giving them some time to explore and move out of the starting area so we can come in is pretty cool IMO.

But of course deep down i want to play lol. hopefully i get in tomorrow.. i preordered it awhile ago.

I thought they had solved that issue by structuring the physical cpu servers so that multiple ones housed a single game server.

Or does it rededicate more resources to maintaining the begining areas to compensate until people are spread out more?

 Are you trolling me? Lets say a server has a 3k max population (Faction based) 1.5k per side the start zones in every game are tiny compared to the game itself... end game you have 3k people running about across the game world or doing instances... so they are spread out. As a protective measure most theme park game servers protect the populace from crashing by limiting the amount of people that can be in the "Starter" area of a game world due to how small it is, linear it is. So earlier it represented the "Starter" load. As players moved beyond the starter zone the server load began to go down because the actual server can support more than say ... 500 people. Now basically Bioware could let 500 x 130+ servers into the game and it would go back up to Full.

Everything I say is my opinion or personal preference. You may or may not find it useful to your cause but regardless I am entitled to it.

the system is completly dumb.

when a game launches, mmo type, everyone needs to be on the same ground so they create the names they want to / reserve a few for alts and so on and on.

furthermore, for a pvp server is important who goes ahead.. hell even for pve is in some sense.

giving acess to only a part of the players to start the game earlier, using the date when the game was bought as a way to line up the players while every one of them has paid the same price and bought the same product, is completly retarded.

So again, my point is that they are not represenative of the total server population, they are in fact represenative of the server "load" which is weighted for the starter zones CPU servers, due to protect from critical system failure and crashing etc.

Thank you for explaining.

So much rage. Isn't patience one of the earliest things we try to teach our children? Sharing, patience, taking turns, not throwing a fit when thugs don't go their way.

These are all basic concepts that our parents teach us before we get into school even. We should remember that and settle the crap down. In a few short days (which is nothing compared to the amount of time we will sink into these games) we will all be playing the game.

We have been told over and over again how this staggered launch was going to work, from the very beginning. If you didn't like it, why did you preorder? Did you really think you were going to get in on the first day if you didn't order right away?

You will get your turn. Until then, live your life.


dont panic! It's going to be OKAY!

Sorry if it came off that way, I just was a tad confused because different folks keep claiming different things on how the server load status is handled.  What you are saying makes absolute sense.

 Actually most parents don't teach their kids anything, they expect T.V., Internet and school to do it for them. Thats another discussion though. It's my right as a paying customer to point out that a company made a mistake and the only part that bothers me in a way that makes me a little angry is the cheaters who won't face any punishment for exploiting the low population for free 5-10k experience every couple minutes by queueing pvp mini games.

The low population that would be avoided... if Bioware actually understood their servers instead of taking the day off after seeing them "Full" at 2PM when they are basically Empty at prime time.

At the moment, 9:52 pm EST, they are all standard except for two that are heavy and eight that are light. Not going to count how many are standard as there are sure enough of them.

And if one think about it there are more waves coming as well as launch.

So really not a bad idea this staggered launch. However, I do feel a bit for people who want to play but didn't get their invite.

agreed.. .. most MMOs that had terrible launches misjudged how many servers they needed, had incomplete game at launch, or just had no clue what they were doing... its not really a hard concept.. you have a stress beta to see how you need to handle your server loads and how many you need get them ready and then launch to everyone who pre-ordered.. It worked fine for rift I waited in at most 20 min or so que at most.. never had any other issue besides that..

Anyone else confused by these odd obsessions with watching a game die. I will be the first to admit I am not a fan of TOR, but I am no fan of it dying either. This was well unexpected, so either the thing is not tracking number correctly or they SEVERELYYYYYYY limited the number of people able to playt he game.

Dexter already gave an explanation to the numbers.. at least 8 times now? in this thread
