There seems to be a much larger queue on continuum lately. Maybe it would be a good idea to bring back the newbie server. People seem to not want to play on pickled or other servers that don't have games most of the time. The newbie server where you always get an 8vs8 game and the skill level is lower is more fun for newbies. I'm not talking about the stupid versions like everyone is an admiral or limited numbers of bots that were done to get people to leave because newbie was too popular. But the original version that attracted lots of new players.
