Hello everyone!

We've seen a lot of discussion recently about the updated timers for the NA region and we want to have a centralised place to gather all of your feedback about it now that the bosses themselves are spawning on their intended schedule.

Feedback for this should be constructive and to help with this, please be sure to be detailed and include things like the reason for the change, why something should be at your suggested time than another etc.

If you have a different timeframe in mind for events, be sure to let us know which timezone your suggestions take into account.

Should you have a lot of feedback to give for each area, please consider listing each thing separately so it is easier for all of us to review it like so:

Charybdis:
Kraken:
Leviathan:
Black Dragon:
Golden Plains Battle:
Fall of Hiram:
Red Dragonís Keep:
Kadum:
Lusca Awakening:
Abyssal Attack:
Delphinad Ghost Ships:

Days and times are nice. I like that ALL wb content spawns on Sundays.

I'd like to see a sooner spawning of all content. I'm Currently on CST and summer spawns are later than I can play. I have a "9-5" job that doesn't allow me to play this late. Winter hours are more manageable but I've found myself only able to go for limited time on content without losing sleep for my job(which I won't be doing for long).

Charybdis: one hour earlier
Kraken: one hour earlier
Leviathan: one hour earlier
Black Dragon: one hour earlier
Golden Plains Battle: one hour earlier
Fall of Hiram: one hour earlier

World boss timers for events are way late in the evening for a large portion of East Coast North America and Central North America. If these spawns could be moved to an hour earlier that would be great and allow a larger number of players to participate. Thank you for your consideration.

I do agree that boss timers and siege timers should be one hour earlier for the central and eastern coast NA players. For NA west coast and pacific players, these times are okay. If daylight savings never happened, the time of bosses would been manageable. As a East Coast player majority of these boss spawn are around 10:00 pm and sometimes don't end until after midnight. Only reason these timers are okay for now is cuz of the quarantine situation.

Charybdis: one hour earlier
Kraken: one hour earlier
Leviathan: one hour earlier
Black Dragon: one hour earlier
Golden Plains Battle: one hour earlier
Fall of Hiram: one hour earlier
Red Dragon’s Keep: one hour earlier
Kadum: one hour earlier
Lusca Awakening: one hour earlier
Abyssal Attack: one hour earlier, and shorten to only 1 hour. 2 hour contested abyssal is exhausting, plus if the crystal is channelled,
that's another 1 hour added to abyssal.
Delphinad Ghost Ships: stay as is. i see no reason to change DGS.

As an east coaster, I have to agree with everyone else that has posted so far.

There is one thing that wasn't mentioned in the original post however and I believe this is also very important. Naval arena is currently up for 9 hours and with a minimum entry requirement of lvl 30 and no gear score, maybe people and guilds (looking at you Aria people) have been rigging their games to have virtually no competition to boost certain players up on the leaderboard for the insanely overpowered figurehead rewards at the end of the month. I suggest we go back to the old timer on naval arena (1 hour, 3 times per day) instead of the current 9 hour availability and increase the minimum level and possibly make a gear score requirement to enter as well.

Charybdis: one hour earlier
Kraken: one hour earlier
Leviathan: one hour earlier
Black Dragon: one hour earlier
Golden Plains Battle: one hour earlier
Fall of Hiram: one hour earlier
Red Dragon’s Keep: one hour earlier
Kadum: one hour earlier
Lusca Awakening: one hour earlier
Abyssal Attack: one hour earlier
Delphinad Ghost Ships: one hour earlier

Naval Arena:1 hour, 3 times per day, add a higher minimum level and add a gear score requirement to enter

With all of the content centered around NA Ďprime timeí nothing gets killed. People get excited that a new World boss is out, but then the raids just end up going to do Glenn and Meina instead ( sometimes DGS). I believe you need to take older content such as DGS, Kraken, Abyssal and spread them out throughout the 24 hour Archeage day. Only have the newest Bosses during prime time, and players can better focus on defeating them.

Drizzitxv
03-31-2020, 05:02 AM
That's an interesting idea. But they've already kinda done that with RD and Kadum. I don't know if that's a wise suggestion considering what's happened to "older" content already.

Starling

Please change the timers back to what they were. As an east coast player content is way too late for me because I work. My guild leader can't even come to content any more and has had to quit the game because of it. Anyone who didn't like the previous times would have quit the game ages ago. The people who are still left playing liked the times the way they were. Changing it now only makes you lose players, not gain them.

BRING BACK OLD BOSS TIMERS. When everyone started playing AAU it was based on the old timers. The playerbase that liked or could adjust to those timers are your CURRENT playerbase. The playerbase that didnt like them or were unable to adjust havent just been sitting around waiting for something to happen, they have quit and they quit months ago. Focus on your current playerbase and stop driving them away.

Old timers were doable and/or people were able to attend content late but wouldnt miss it all together.

Not a fan of the new times once daylight savings hit.. its super late for anyone on the east coast. If you have a full time day job you cant make most of the events because you have to go to bed at a decent hour. Would really like to see the times go back at least 1 hour for the east coast at least..

EVERY SINGLE TIMER:

SET IT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS BEFORE

Holy crap. There are SO MANY Things wrong with the current timers.

Change day spawns back to the way it was before. Zero content on friday? The most popular day to play? Are you for real right now?

Everything spawns on sunday? AT LIKE 11 PM EST? The day everyone has to go to bed early becuase of work on Monday? AGAIN ARE YOU FOR REAL?

SWAP timers back to old day schedule.
BUMP timers backwards (INCLUDING RESET) by a MINIMUM of TWO (2) hours. Content starting at damn near midnight for EST players is probably the dumbest, biggest goofball mistake i've ever seen a publisher make in my 18 odd years of MMO gaming. Simply absolutely the most ridiculous thing i've ever seen in forever. Ya'll garbage.

You have lost over half kaylin east players due to timer swap and world bosses not spawning. Fix it ffs.

Please revert to old timers. In my opinion, it was the middle ground accessible to majority of the players. New timings made things worse, good for half the playerbase while the other half are left in dirt unable to attend most or any at all. 1/3 of my guild are contemplating on quiting due to the new timers, they cant get any progression done without these events.

Charybdis: Previous Timer

I'd say the first thing that needs adjustment is to allow events to run without being affected by daylight savings time! This will solve the "one hour earlier" problem people in the East Coast are posting about currently, and will prevent future fallout when Daylight Savings Time eventually ends.

If that's not possible, then yes I'd like to see the following:

Charybdis: one hour earlier
Kraken: one hour earlier
Leviathan: one hour earlier
Black Dragon: one hour earlier
Golden Plains Battle: one hour earlier
Fall of Hiram: one hour earlier
Red Dragonís Keep: one hour earlier
Kadum: one hour earlier
Lusca Awakening: one hour earlier
Abyssal Attack: one hour earlier
Delphinad Ghost Ships: one hour earlier

In my opinion you currently have to many things stacked ontop of each other, granted this forces a choice in content but some things we miss that were never issues before. So I think that all the major world bosses should keep their current timeslots forcing people to choose which loot they want. (By major world bosses I mean: Charybdis, Kraken, Leviathan, Black Dragon)
Delphinad Ghost ships should be one hour earlier than world bosses since they aren't technically a world boss.
I feel like these have perfect time slots (unless DGS would overlap them then move them back an hour): Golden Plains Battle, Fall of Hiram, Red Dragonís Keep, Kadum
Finally I think Luscas Awakening and Abyssal Attack should be placed back before reset when nothing else was, this gives heroes or aspiring heroes the option for leadership and the faction the option for pvp and gold. Spreading these apart promotes more activity than stacking them with world bosses.

Leviathan: Make it 1 hour earlier (Also fix it why on Sunday the boss still up for 2 hours after all other 3 despawn)
Black Dragon: Make it 1 hour earlier
Golden Plains Battle: Its kinda ok, but u need to make schedule longer so we can enter 3 times (instead of waiting for the next schedule)
Fall of Hiram: Doesnt do this one so i dont really care..
Red Dragonís Keep: Make it so it doesnt stack with dailies like Jola Meina Glenn
Kadum: Doesnt do this one so i dont really care

Lusca Awakening: Same as Abyssal, but after abyssal spawn
Delphinad Ghost Ships: Make it 1 hour earlier or before/after boss spawn/despawn

Well to be perfectly honest, in my humble opinion, of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view, but also by looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one's view's and by trying to make it objectified, and by considering each and every one's valid opinion, I honestly believe that I completely forgot what I was going to say.

I'd like to leave my feedback about this as well. Not to be rude to non-EU players but my argument is very solid in my opinion, we're an EU server and these timers have a huge impact to majority as they are far too late. While I understand people might have work or other stuff to do during the day, this should not be a reason for the game to have these timers. I'd highly suggest that at LEAST boss timers get changed back to how they were. Instance timers arnt great for me but i can live with not doing 3 halcy's per day.

Longer timer player, first time forum user!

Iv never had to use the forums until now and i felt like i had to make a forum account and give my 2 cents on the event and boss timers. Timers werent great previously but for most of the players they were manageable. Poeple were able to and did change up there schedules to meet content needs. This sudden change in timers hasnt done the game any benefits and from what i can see has driven players away. Dont change something that isnt broken. Focus on improving the game and take feedback from players be it good or bad.

I agree with what most people are saying on this thread and that is to change timers back to what they were

Ima from the WC and I aswell thing the old timers were better. I changed my work schedules around the old timers to attend content. I do like the halcy / RD changes etc, keep them the same or as close as you can but id like to see old boss timers return.

Also, who can tell me where my names from? do we have any old school gamers in here? :D

I think most east coasters and players from South America would agree that events need to start earlier, so here's my feedback:

Charybdis: 2 Hours earlier
Kraken: 2 Hours earlier
Leviathan: 2 Hours earlier
Black Dragon: 2 Hours earlier
Golden Plains Battle: Keep as it is
Fall of Hiram: Keep as it is
Red Dragon’s Keep: Keep as it is
Kadum: Keep as it is
Lusca Awakening: Start it 15 mins earlier than abyssal attack
Abyssal Attack: 2 Hours earlier
Delphinad Ghost Ships: 2 Hours earlier

West coasters will still be able to participate with these hours even if they work a 9-5 job. 2 Hours is enough of a compromise so that everyone can participate.

I agree, it is sad. Im ingame currently and i see a couple of people with alts, thats it. Yes its early but its the weekend. I remember a couple of months pack and austera would be packed with people doing stuff and dueling. Now its a ghost town all because of one patch. People dont login anymore, so many people have left and will prob never return. Hopefully Gamigo and XL dont take too long to bring in new timers and hopefully people will come back. I forone would like to see old timers return ASAP.

No idea why timers were ever changed, everyone who was currently playing were sticking around because they could play on the current timers. Those who quit were the people that couldn't make the old timers. Now that they've been changed you've ruined it for the people who stuck around and forced a massive chunk of the player base to quit.

New NA Content Timers

Majority of players on the NA servers work a 9-5 job.
People need sleep.
Majority of players on the NA servers live within the PST - EST time zones.


The idea is to keep most content starting and ending at the same time everyday to reduce confusion, while at the same time having decent times for both west and east coast, and to spread content throughout the week.

Instances
Golden Plains Battle: Everyday
PST 2:30-4:00 AM -------- 10:30-12:00 PM -------- 6:30-8:00 PM
CST 4:30-6:00 AM -------- 12:30-2:00 PM -------- 8:30-10:30 PM
EST 5:30-7:00 AM -------- 1:30-3:00 PM -------- 9:30-11:00 PM

New NA Content Timers

Majority of players on the NA servers work a 9-5 job.
People need sleep.
Majority of players on the NA servers live within the PST - EST time zones.


The idea is to keep most content starting and ending at the same time everyday to reduce confusion, while at the same time having decent times for both west and east coast, and to spread content throughout the week.

But they are nowhere near as bad as trion was with there P2w BS. Anyway this isnt the place for a Gamigo and Trion debate, lets get back to event timers.

Abyssal Attack & Delphinad Ghost Ships

considering these are two of the most important pvp events that reward awards worth thousands upon thousands of gold, having them start around 11pm EST is kind of horrible.

having them start around the same time as the castle siege event would be nice! or at the least an hour or two earlier from the current time this way its not around midnight or 1 oclock in the morning EST when they end.

WitchyWoman
05-28-2020, 09:20 AM
We have discussed timers on bosses, but I think we also need to discuss transport timers. Castle transport can not be started until midnight EST so most of the castle transport time is when most NA people are going to bed especially after states are re-opening and people have to go back to work. By the time most NA players are available there is little time left for completion which makes it highly challenged.

Deni West is mostly Sea players so the time for castle transport is their prime time. They do theirs between midnight and 3am. Since East who is mostly US players we are all asleep and unable to contest until West US players are online. The old transport timers were still early, but due to restricted times both factions struggled to pull large groups so contesting was equal. We would contest theirs and they would contest ours, but on an equal level.

It would be nice to pop the quest and allow castle transport to happen at reset. That is still a bad time with dailies followed by content until midnight but at least we would have a choice.

Since returning to AA the timers seem to favor non NA players. In Legacy the timers were changed to fit the prime time playing of NA players. The SEA players were upset, but this is a NA server. EU timer should fit EU times. During the time of Chinese players come building large guilds and zerging we need to focus on the players who the game was targeted for NA/EU. There are other versions of this game for other countries. There is a KU version, Russian and there is about to be a SEA version. Let us have our times and if someone outside plays they can play on our times.

Oh. Right. Sorry.
I only read your message and didn't really check the name of the thread and confused NA and EU timers that way.
Sorry again.

Are the NA timers really that much of an issue? Based on the answers in this thread it seems like they are off by a little but not much.
At least compared to EU timers where a lot of events take place in the middle of the night e.g. Sieges at 11pm (1am server time).

Its 9 pages of people asking for a 1-2 hour change over the course of 4 months because the timers are really bad for the majority of employed EST players. Then posting on the discord that NA timers are not even in consideration after 9 months?

Why ask for feedback when you decide to ignore it and not even give a reason? You can't be bothered to spend 60 seconds replying in your own thread explaining why..

If we cant get timer changes for NA id also like to know why. I saw the comment on Discord where Cosmo explained the feedback was there and thats why i was so suprised when he said NA timer changes werent happening. We have almost as much feedback as EU has. After being led to think there was a chance for NA timer changes, all Gamigo has done now is make more players quit by saying it wont even be considered. Game ruined by a useless publisher again.

It seems Cosmo, Gamigo and XL dont seem to understand how much these timers effect Employed EST players.. When timers were first changed about 50% of our guild decided to quit, we had to merge into another guild to keep going to content but most of the people left were staying based on hopes that timers would change either back to old timers or by at LEAST 1-2 hours. Since Gamigo has decided to not even CONSIDER timer changes for NA the rest of my guild has decided to quit bar 1 or 2 people. As of today i have also decided to follow and we are moving onto other games. Archeage has lost 32 players today and thats not including people from our alliance who will also follow once they realise a big group from the alliance has left.. Well done Gamigo.

I see everyone is posting just an hour earlier
But would it still be fine 2 hours earlier, when DST hits?

I'm all for things being at least tolerable, but even just an hour earlier is enough to catch the start of events, but to see them to their finish is still devestating to sleeping habits for the East coast players.

I think there should be a stagger.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays could instead take place 2-3 hours sooner,
Mon, Tues, Wed could remain as is, or at least -an- hour sooner

This should allow more players to get a chance to get to participate in content.

Staggered is a nice idea but i cant see it working for archeage with the way bosses spawn. Its been hard enough getting XL to maybe look at NA timers again, cant imagine a whole reword of boss spawns and days etc is on the table.

It seems the feedback is mounting up daily for NA timer changes? any news on when we'll get some info on this @cosmo

i'd say at most 1h earlier if there was to be a change, as anything more will conflict with the daily reset raids and (although i'm aware this is NA) would cut out the availability for OCE players to join in content which there seems to be a large number of as well

I would also say 1-2 hours would be perfect for most people, at least people could get back from work and take part in half the content instead of 0 like we have now.

I'd like to see a lot of the timers change, including reset time. Having everything reset in the middle of prime time is just... short sited. I think it'd be better to have daily reset mid-morning so people can get on when they get home from work or whenever and do their dailies without feeling like they need to try to cram it in before bosses start spawning. That said, bosses spawn way too late for most people, and the instanced bosses are in the same boat. Half the time they only give you one opportunity a day to go and its either competing with world boss content or the middle of the night! These, along with halcy and luscas, need to have more options. "But halcy is 3x a day!" Again though, the first one isn't bad, but its right before content, the second is middle of the night and the third is middle of most people's work day. Another halcy idea: stop the auto raids. Let people form the raids when they get inside so we don't have 2 raids of 75% of afks.

Im wanting to return to AAU but with the current timers I see no point in coming back because i cant attend content. I understand reset time cant change because its server locked (so iv been told) but everything else needs to go back by at least 2 hours, not including daylight saving. This way alot more people can actually play the game and im sure you will see alot more players returning.

World boss timers for events are way late in the evening for a large portion of East Coast North America and Central North America. If these spawns could be moved to 2 hours earlier that would be great and allow a larger number of players to participate. Thank you for your consideration.

IMO with daylight savings happening soon i think bringing content timers back by 1 hour for now is enough but that doesnt help the situation later when daylight savings happens again. My suggestion is to bring timers back by 1 hour.

I had quit the game back when timers first changed and we were told over and over again nothing could be done. Iv now been told EU timers have been changed which is good to see. Im hoping the same can be done for NA timers because what we currently have is way to late for most people on the EC due to IRL. Looking at the suggestions so far I would be more than happy with bosses spawns being 1-2 hours earlier.

+1 from me for Hippos and Merkedd's suggestions and reasonings.

Here we are still waiting on a reply, if only Gamigo and XL listened to there community... :sigh:

Andrew, Gamigo seems to have this really bad habbit in telling us nothing until it happens.. the amount of players they have lost due to lack of communication is unreal and someone they cant seem to get there act together. Timers need to be changed back by at least 1 hour (2hours total if you include DLS). This would bring back so many players, me and my guild included. Its bad enough people will need to try and catch up again but the MMO market is dead atm and Archeage is the only decent pvp MMO out there.

Large portion of East Coast North America and Central North America still getting cucked.. imagine cutting your playerbase down by half and spending 8 Months + not listening to that playerbase and thinking everything is fine. Bring back old timers and if thats not possible bring them back by at least 2 hours like EVERYONE else has suggested....

I think the timers need to be earlier and more spread out around reset. Currently reset is at 8pm EST and content ends around 2AM EST. Its very hard to stay for the entire time if you have work or class to be at in the morning. As a west coast gamer I would suggest this these times for reset and the content following reset.
-PRE DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME-
Reset: 7:00PM EST
Special Event Quests: 7:00 PM EST
Charybdis: 9:00 PM EST
Kraken: 9:00 PM EST
Leviathan: 9:00 PM EST
Black Dragon: 9:00 PM EST
Golden Plains Battle: 7:30 PM EST
Fall of Hiram: 7:30 PM EST
Red Dragonís Keep: 8:15 PM EST
Kadum: 8:15PM EST
Lusca Awakening: 8:30 PM EST
Abyssal Attack: 8:30 PM EST
Delphinad Ghost Ships: 10:00 PM EST

-Overall I think Golden Plain battles should be only 30minutes after reset because the daily raids are completed within 30minutes and then people just simply wait another hour to que for golden plains.
Because of this red dragon and kadum should still begin after golden plains but they will also be earlier because golden plains would be earlier.
Allowing 30 minutes between kadum and red dragon and the spawn on content bosses allows the players attending the content bosses to actually que for kadum and red dragon.
Having luscas and abysal spawn 30 minutes prior to content would allow heros to get their leadership dailies completed and still go to content. Currently heros skip luscas and abysal because they are during content. With this change they would still be able to attend.
DGS spawning more than 15 minutes after the other bosses means there is more time for players to keep actively playing the game. It would allow the players to focus on the bosses that were spawned without having to rush to DGS with 5 minutes prior to despawn. Because of this the players will end up with more time to pvp over content.

I agree with this.. These timers would make it possible for both east, west and central would be able to attend some content.
