    Hmm, 16 years still can't get the bugs out . Play like its 1999 Lag, Login errors, Link dead etc. Have fun.

    Yea, I'm burnt. I've been trying to get on since 7pm PST... it is now 10:30pm PST... servers are full. Foolishly, I subbed for a year to get the "discounted" monthly rate, I was that excited. I was able to get on yesterday and make my characters, then the whole 50s situation and wipe... and now I can't get on.

    I'm just dumbfounded. This is ridiculous. I feel slighted.

    I can't even connect to the server, let alone login to Ragefire. WTF is going on? I haven't seen any notices, as far as I've seen everything is supposed to be up but it's just hard as hell to get on the Ragefire server?

    "A connection to the server cannot be reached" bla bla bla

    You need another server!
  5. Kainam New Member

    I've been waiting 5 hrs to get in, how long do we have to wait before you realize we need another server?
  6. Wesleypipes77 Journeyman

    Nope it's from the main login screen that I couldn't even get past. Well must have been something on my end a reboot fixed it. Now I'm back to being locked out of Ragefire.

    "The server is at maximum capacity" bla bla bla
    Was so looking forward to playing EQ again and it's been nothing but .

    Couldn't agree more, there are a lot of people locked out and it's going to stay that way. If the server cap can't be increased any further then start a new one. We'd like to play too

    They should add code to kick AFK players, pretty obvious that tons of people are just leaving their characters logged in overnight so they can play tomorrow, it's after 11 pm west coast and still cannot get in to even make a character. Server full.

    I guess I can stick up a crowdfunder page for a server and put my instanced classic up on it, then work on instancing kunark. Prolly get that off the ground before DB gets their shiz together.

    If I use the Beta client to login ... I only see "Beta locked" in the beta client server selection, do you need another client ?

    There really needs to be something done about the boxers. I know y'all see it as another subscription, but it creates an unfair playing field as they're taking up 2+ spots that other potential players could utilize better.

    I know the reason the server is capped is because it's shiny and new, but boxers need to be kicked off.

    If the boxer payed for each account he can log in... thats his right, thats why they blocked the server off for free players. I'll make a bet that they will have special ragefire member access soon on top of the All Access members so extra money flow in ... imagine that an old timer brings more cash into the cash register the the current one. ;) and best of all you only can play it online.
  13. Leifen Augur

    Boxers pay for their accounts just like everyone else. If they pay they should be able to play, period.
    If there is a problem with to many on the server they need to up the cap that's all.
    So this ragefire founders chest? totally useless 10 slot zero weight reduction crate that weighs in at a whopping 50? What a joke. Give us a 10 slot 100% weight reduction bag that weighs 0.5 then we may thank you. This is pathetic.

    I logged in mostly to reserve character names. If we could have reserved then without logging in, some of you could have had those slots.

    Yes, you need the Live client

    Still issues this morning at 8:30 cst, although i did get in about 10 mins later. There are at the entrance of neriak alone 12 AFK flagged toons and several more just sitting there not moving whether they are AFK for a while or just grabbing a drink I dunno.

    I call BS .. start adding some more server clusters AND/or add a login queue ffs ..
    This shouldn't be a problem. It takes less than 30 min to set up some more servers to handle the amount of players.
    People are paying to play on these servers, so start add like you care about our business.

    I don't care about how it is if I play as a freebee, then I can live with that I can't log in because a server is too crowded, but dishing people and have them press a button 750 times for half an hour and still not getting in when you PAY to PLAY is BS !!!:mad:

    ADD a login QUEUE !!

    This is ridiculous DB! WTG on not having enough server space. WTH did you think was gonna happen when you started RF up? You need to Ban Boxing. People pay to play the game and not every paying customer can play because 1 paying customer is using 2-6 accounts? Be fair, ban boxes. It not only will allow everyone a chance to play but will make finding groups easier, the way it was meant to be.

    Should probably edit the title to state that the "Ragefire Server Now Available... to give you a message that it's at max capacity for hours on end - you're probably not going get to play much this holiday weekend...but the server is up!!! Cheers!"
