Say goodbye to those long and boring queue times say ArenaNet, their new overflow system will allow players to enter the game whilst they are still queueing.
ArenaNet’s Martin Kerstein took to the Guild Wars 2 Guru forums to deliver the message that queue times will be almost, a thing of the past.
“Let me explain what an overflow server is and what it does. It is a technology we also use as our version of a queuing system. When a map or a world you want to log into is at capacity limit, the game will ask you if you want to play on an overflow server – so you can actually play while you are in a queue.
Once space opens on your world, the game will ask you if you want to join your friends on your world. And you keep all the progress you made while you were playing on the overflow server.”
Guild Wars 2 is currently in closed Beta testing and is expected to release some time in 2012.
