Yeah it’s the issue with MMOs. There are rushers, to be sure, but even for people who do not rush, there is the issue of “staying with the pack”, because if you fall behind, you generally get left out of things down the road.
In this game, though, because of the queues and the fact that so many people can’t access well at all right now, it’s not the case that if you’re in that boat you are falling behind generally. There is a huge amount of players in the same boat with you, so you aren’t falling behind the “pack” of players. You are falling behind the vanguard of players (and some of those may be in your company or in your friends group), but the “general pack” of players is not ahead of you, so you shouldn’t be worried about falling behind of the pack. You’re behind the vanguard, but that can’t be helped at this point – the fact that lots of players (most players) are in the same position you are is comforting in that it means you aren’t falling behind the pack.
