Q: How do I play with my friends on Xbox One?
A: Use the D-pad quick menu to send tells or invites to group. You’ll need to know their in-game character name to do this!
Q: How do I bypass the free queue?
A: If you purchase a bundle or a character slot, or if you buy and spend Marketplace cash in-game, you will be placed in the Premium Queue. If you buy membership, you will be placed in the Member Queue.
Q: I bought Marketplace Cash. Why don’t I have Premium Access?
A: In order for premium access to take effect, you have to spend the Marketplace Cash in-game or at login on character slots.
Q: Why is the queue so long?!
A: The server is currently full. If you’re in the queue, you are waiting for players that are currently online to log off.
Q: But why IS there a queue?
A: The queue is in place due to the current size of our server. However, we are adding capacity as quickly as possible! Thanks for being patient.
Q: What’s the difference between buying the Ultimate Edition versus becoming a Member?
