We're working on improving some of the percentages on some backend tasks that currently aren't yet as informative.

This is a problem with the droplet timing. They will look into and fix the problem
Yes the service is actually deployed in 60 secs. but that was a tech error..
My instance creation has also paused at this point.
I have a same problem. After that, I got a message:
"There was an error while creating your droplet."

Right now, I have a droplet being created from a snapshot on ams2 (with larger disk) : progressbar is at about 5%, message says "Approximately 57 seconds remaining", it has been like that for at least 30 minutes already. Hope it will end at some point, would be great to have a more accurate progress information.
