First of all, a sincere thanks to everyone who helped me test login times for their various MMOs. We didn’t cover all of them, and there’s never *enough* data for this sort of thing, but I was curious, and I thought you might be as well.
So here are the results — how long, on average, it took readers to go from clicking on the desktop icon to being fully in the game. Take these all with a huge grain of salt — some of the games we had a lot more data, and some the “spread” (between lowest and highest) was more pronounced. So I’ve included how many samples and what the spread (low-high) was to help with the analysis:
- Lord of the Rings Online: 145.8 seconds (7 samples, 61-173)
- Aion: 140 seconds (1 sample)
- EverQuest 2: 129.3 seconds (3 samples, 78-175)
- Fallen Earth: 107.1 seconds (10 samples, 50-145)
