Popular online games can sometimes get bogged down due to the sheer number of players wanting to log on, creating a server queue. Splitgate is no exception.
In layman's terms: servers only have a certain level of capacity for users. Once that cap is reached, active players will need to log off for new players to log on. This creates a queue where those who request to log in and play will be cataloged according to when they made the request. They'll then be placed in a line relative to other requests.
This is commonly measured and displayed by the game either as an average length of time users spent in queue before accessing the server or by providing the user's place on in line relative to zero.
We've explained the server queue situation with Splitgate below.
Splitgate Server Queue Time Explained
There is no queue active for Splitgate servers at the time of writing.
This is entirely subjective, however, and can change at any time. Therefore, we've added a few methods for fans to check this, themselves.
One way to check the server health and/or get updates on the server queue is by locating the game's official social media accounts—such as the verified Splitgate Twitter. There, players can find out if a new update has dropped, when the last server upgrade was, and whether or not a queue is currently in place.
Its companion account, @SplitgateStatus, is an even better indicator as it is solely focused on that very topic. However, it's not uncommon to see the two sharing tweets between each other to help announcements reach as many viewers as possible.
Players can also join the official Splitgate Discord server to stay up to date on the latest tweaks, upgrades, and news while engaging with fellow players.
