According to the Dauntless community team and their post on Reddit, this Memorial Day weekend (a holiday for most U.S. based businesses) has turned into a massive push to drive down the queue numbers for their open beta. Since open beta began just a few days ago, Slayers looking to get in on the behemoth smashing fun have been facing some SERIOUS wait times with queues extending into the tens of thousands. Obviously not happy with the situation, Phoenix Labs has been working hard all weekend to alleviate the situation.
Hello, Slayers! Thank you for your patience this weekend. After some long nights and about 40 gallons of coffee, we are proud to announce that Dauntless matchmaking and servers are stable! At this moment, we are at “zero queue”, a record-setting number of active players, and all Slayers are in the Shattered Isles. From everyone at Phoenix Labs: thank you for your patience and support.
That doesn’t mean things will STAY that way though and the team does warn that if a massive amount of players try to login then queues could rear their ugly head again. The team also goes on to post a number of updates to some common issues, some bug status reports, and a few other things you Slayers may want to check on, so make sure to visit the Reddit post!
