First things first, the game’s queue system as of now is very atrocious. These queue times take a lot away from the overall gameplay experience. Considering the queue does not let the player even play the game, fans are bound to be left displeased. In fact, players have found themselves waiting up to an hour to get themselves in-game.

The USA servers have witnessed extremely long queues with over 140k players in a queue. Players who managed to load in the game refuse to quit, even when they are not playing. Why leave and wait for an abysmally long time in the queue again? While this practice is criticized, the feeling of a player doing so is understood.

The players’ worries do not cease when they have loaded up the game. There are several back-end issues that are rampant. They are so extensive that players are not able to stay in-game for a long time. Trivial tasks, such as moving items in the inventory, lead the game engine to crash.

Escape From Tarkov’s content creator took to Twitter to highlight his frustration.

Pestily is a streamer who has constantly been in touch with BattleState Games, the developer. This means that the issue is quite serious. The developers have taken control of this problem and are reassuring players of solutions to come.

Nikita Buyanov, the title’s lead designer, recently made a bold claim. He suggested that the game is being attacked by malicious entities in a Twitch stream. However, no further explanation was offered.
