He look on the bright side… I planned to play PVE Conflict. Decided to let the servers quiet because as I have 400 hours in the game before launch I can level quick if I want, and I can build almost anywhere as I know the map and how to get around. Then I find out less than 24 hours after launch the play style I wanted is no longer on the official servers really.
In your case PvP players always swarm a server and then as soon as half them realize they suck (or other players are hacking, or they are spamming, or the combat sucks, or insert excuse here they leave) Leaving half the servers empty and that kills the game off. You can’t know who many servers you need at launch. And CE doesn’t allow for Migration for obvious reasons.
You’ve played on 422 great… then you know the game well enough that when they open up servers or the servers clear up you’ll be able to play and do well.
It sucks of course it does it is Launch. That is the whole reason I didn’t rush to get on a server because I knew based on my months of experience that it was going to be laggy and full and difficult to find a server with no sure bet that you’d get on one anyway. It was really obvious that this was going to be the case.
