It does suck ass, thankfully I won't have to wait anymore. You are correct about it being more annoying trying to follow friends on servers. For instance, last week Haru was fifth in the queue, while I was sixth. All of the sudden, he was in game, while I stayed at sixth place for another 6 minutes or so. During that time other premies were joining the server.
It's the queue jumping and new assignments that prompted me to buy as I wasn't super interested in the frenetic play style of CQ. It is much more fun than I was anticipating, though.
