Cross server queuing - Enable/Disable by server group!

This came up in the Q&A of this week:

Gabe Amatangelo: Not until we introduce cross server queuing.

 

Now, my suggestion is very simple:

Enable cross server queuing in some server groups, but KEEP IT DISABLED in a few others. Allow a single free transfer for each character to a group with or a group without cross server queuing.

 

Want to play WITH cross-server ques? Fine, make sure you transfer to a group that has them.

Absolutely HATE cross server ques? Simple, transfer to a group that doesn't.

 

Cross server ques are NEVER optional when available. As soon as a segment of a server starts using them, the pool of players available for server-exclusive becomes smaller, effectively FORCING the rest of the players to queue up cross-server as well, whether they like it or not.

 

So vary this feature by server, allow those who do NOT want to play cross-server to form their own full pool of like minded people on servers that do not have this option available.

 

Given a vote, this subject always gave a 50/50 division. So let the players actually decide whether they want to be part of this.

Yes, lets make an option for players to opt out and make it intra server. Just make sure there is a reason for players to use the cross server from big populations as it's intended to help low population servers amongst other people
