Peak Hours Connectivity

Is it normal for Friday evenings for it to be virtually impossible to log-in and play this game or is it just because of the new class?  I tried for an hour to play tonight and I was disconnected within a few seconds every time no matter what channel I tried.  My internet was staying connected so it must be on the game server end.  I guess I will just wait til a less busy time to play.  Does Black Desert always have overloaded servers?

Today were events where special  bosses spawned. That exploded the servers. Normally you won't have any issues. We havnt seen queues for ages. Certainly, the new class also brought lots of ppl back. It will calm down very soon again.

Cool!  This is the most unique and interesting MMO I have started in quite some time.  Everything has been great so far except the getting kicked from the game over and over during heavy traffic hours.  I am a late night gamer anyways though so I should be ok.  Cheers.

(Update 1135pm pacific time) I am still getting disconnected instantly every time I try to log in on every channel :(  bummer!

I have spent literally 2 hours today just trying to get on my horse and leave the town of Glish... disconnected EVERY SINGLE time before I even get on my horse... this is quite ridiculous...  100% unplayable like this :(  I like the game I wish I could play it.

As xMovingTarget said, those events have had a huge effect on the servers. Time wise, I'd say from 5am-1pm (CST) is when the least amount of players are actively playing though.
