Question about servers filling up?

So Most of my guild mates are getting in the game now and they said the servers are filling up.

"Two, our plan is to continue to add servers - but carefully, and in response to demand. We need to monitor that demand and roll out servers accordingly. A long-term recipe for MMO failure is to add a lot of servers early on, and then when population decreases, have to close those servers and merge them together."

 

So what happens to us people who get in later? Can we play on servers already full?

 

How can we hook up with out guild-mates/friends if the servers that are live now are already full by the time us late comers get in game?

 

Then that leads to the next questions.....whats the staggered start like this...when will server transfers so I can play with my friends.

Servers are NOT full. The player limit is throttled way back from actual capacity so that they can expand the capacity as they go through the EGA process. Rest assured, you will be able to get on the same server as your guild.

I heard the same thing for beta test weekends.....never played with them....server was ALWAYS full with the 250 people they let into it

I've been thinking about the same thing after reading this.

We all know how long it can take mmo's comp to implement server transfer (and ask payment for it!) and some games have restrictions on what servers you can move to and from also.

 

But the industry must have learned by each others mistakes by now, so I have faith that they know how to solve this in a fast, easy and free way.
