I've been getting queues of similar length (in terms of position) but the time taken was much shorter! I haven't timed it, but it certainly felt quicker...

Oh, and I spend the time enjoying how awesome my character looks :)

Well... I usually end up not waiting at all.

When it happens i just alt + f4 and try other game. I don't wanna wait, c'mon, no ones like it.

But it would be a really nice initiative to make some puzzle games in theses waiting screens, just like happens in some ps2 games. (and that was a tip, mister developer!)

But if I really have to wait, I usually gets bored and count the pixels on my screen .-.

I spin around in my chair until I get dizzy, pass out, then when I come to the game is usually on, or I have been signed out because I was out to long.

I find a less populated server. And stay there.

@dudes

This. Life is too short for login queues, especially since server transfers have become so widely available in the genre. I'd rather play for 6 months and then transfer than to spend a week waiting 15-60 minutes to get into the game.

@dudes Let's see, we have PvE US. PvP US, PvE UK, and PvP UK.

Not counting the PS3 servers which are probably the same.

In the past I've either watched the queue number slowly decrease or watched television to pass the time. Come a new monitor, I'll able to browse the internet while waiting on the god awful queues. Not that I expect queues for a game anytime soon. It's been a while.

I don't wait in queue, I play something else. If the problem persists, I put the game in my On Hold folder and try again in a few months. If I still have wait queues then, I just uninstall the game.

I look for other MMOs to play that are more stable.

Actually, DCUO's login ques last week were only taking about 3mins for every 1000th place in line. So if you got 4000, you wait 12 mins.

NOW, after the newest patch on Tuesday - ALL Legendary and Premium players get priority access. And over the last two days, during primetime, not one player with Leg or Prem access had to wait - AT ALL. Only the free players had login ques, and even then, they were a lot shorter than last week.

I enjoy your posts, but if you are going to talk about the state of DCUO's login ques, the last time you attempt to login shouldnt be 5 days ago.

As for the time wait, just hop onto the forums or for DCUO, watch a few minutes of any DC superhero cartoon to get you in the mood for kicking butt.

GL! and TRY OUT DCUO! Its amazing!
