apologize for the yesterday's tantrums, i finally managed to get in and i should say i loved the game: didnt like the idea of different characters having different abilities at first, but now i can say theres no op characters (maybe nyx but thats what others say) and you can successfully own on both ranger (def character) and anarki (75 default health); there are some sound bugs here and there, at times the game may freeze but apart from that performance-wise everything was fine; all in all really enjoyed it so far, now i just gotta wait 3 hrs for server maintenance to be over and ill be back on grind

Couldn't play when the beta started because I'd get a client error. Can't play now because the waiting list is 1500 people. Thank you Bethesda.

I wouldn't know, 1600 person queue. then 1-2 hours later when you get to the bottom of the queue, you get client error

This type of thing (long server wait time + "client error" bugs) is very common now, unfortunately. Alot of Blizzard/Ubisoft AAA games I've played have the same issue on beta or launch, so much so that many people don't even try to get on the server on day 1.

Examples:
-hearthstone gets a big update, no one can open packs or even log on for several hours
-day 1 of The Division no one can connect and those who manage to are kicked off the server
-Assassins C3 is free for a short time, no one can even log on due to server traffic

There are more cases of this for sure, I don't know how betas can be launched without enough servers to handle the incoming players, maybe they don't calculate the number well enough?

yup most mmo releases have been plagued with issues like this, im used to it, but that doesn't mean its the way it should be.
if the queue actually served its purpose as a line, instead of this client error stuff, it wouldn't be so bad. but yes ik its just beta

honestly if the queues are this bad today imagine how awful it's going to be during the weekend when more people are going to be playing it. Hopefully this sort of stuff doesn't persist because I'm not about to drive an hour and a half back home to wait in line to play a closed beta game

lmao this is already a disaster on launch. if they put this little to no effort in getting people to play their beta how much hope do you have for the actual game.

It's the first day of the first closed beta test. Stress-testing the servers is a huge part of beta testing the game, even if it's seemingly only the login servers. Chill and have an ounce of patience.

It's a long beta, with this weekend being dedicated to making sure their queue system works fully under bigger loads and works properly at manual expansion (happening tomorrow morning).

People here going "omg I can't play during the first weekend of this beta I get for months", if they don't do this you encounter the issue you're complaining about already where when it launches the entire queue system crumbles under the load. It's better to get it out of the way during a weekend or two of a closed beta than a full wide release launch.

Lunacidehow is this surprising to anyone, this is what betas are for

Because most people, despite playing video games nearly their entire lives, don't have the slightest shred of understanding or patience when it comes to game development, alpha/beta testing, or the work that development (QA, engineering, etc) does on even the most basic level. Over time, the concept of alpha/beta testing has become glorified 'early access', so it gives players a warped perception of what is really being tested in an alpha/beta state - one of the most significant being the game's stability, which in this state, is naturally going to be unstable. The entitlement and quick write-off of the game based on these issues is both troubling and amusingly petty. Like yeah nigga I wanna play too, but damn.

As part of the Closed Beta, we are testing many of our systems, which includes our queuing system. Due to overwhelming participation, we're working to expand our queues to allow more users in at one time to alleviate wait times. We appreciate your patience!

Like DarkNecrid mentioned, the fact that they're having these issues now is actually a good thing, because that means they can adjust whatever it is they need to accommodate for the influx of players going through the login authorization servers, among a host of other factors that go into developing and improving that system and other systems associated with it. If they weren't to address those issues now, they would almost certainly crop up later - there realistically isn't a way to internally stress test a server load of this magnitude, hence why stress test betas and such exist.

Apologies for the rant. Hopefully the ClientError thing is resolved - at least the queue times seemed to have diminished somewhat.

Also maybe it's just me, but V-sync appears to just be an FPS cap to refresh rate, I can't tell any input lag on the mouse anyways, will help make the game run better until they optimize it.

(also will help your temps, considering without it on you're sitting in a queue at like 500-600+ FPS rofl)
