There is an actual queue, but it's limited to like 50 or some really small number, which in this stage of the game might as well not be a queue. I'm not complaining they opened up the server to non-legacy players, but I feel a bit annoyed pressing through all the selections at the Start screen every few minutes.
There are so many good things about the revamp i'm ok with tolerating a few congestion difficulties during population dispersal. It's far better than logging on three weeks after launch (1.0) to search Ul'dah and see 75 people, and only 400 online. Lol.
