hello,

Yesterday was pretty cool with the server restarts (dont care about the reason). all afk hanging idiots got kicked and i came instantly into the game! seems like its a fair way to all players. the afk auto kicking system just dont work, so pls keep restarting the server, so other players get a chance to enjoy this awesome game!

Thanks Scapes! I must admit, my opinion of you and your community team is rapidly changing. You're now posting multiple updates every single hour, and responding to threads even as small as this one. This level of publisher-community engagement is pretty unprecedented, so I have to raise my hat to you guys.

Please do it at random times, so that the AFK players can't "plan" their relog for one specific time ;-)

thank you for your response Scapes, but Dragonskull is right! just do randomly server restarts, its just needed in this beginning of the game, because "normal" people, with "normal" work times, don't even have a chance to play.

thanks for your efford!

Hello Scapes,

Is there any plan to make it impossible to stay connected in char select?
Right now everyone and their mom just put themselves in char select for 6-12 hours a day so they wont have to queue.
Also I see people everywhere running into walls or doing other repetitive things to stay online, very obvious if you just look around.

I agree too that more server restarts are needed since thousands of players are just logged in but not there.

Here is a perfect example from Orchidna. They are macroing every min with a jump or some rubbish signs in the chat to keep their char online. So randomly server restarts would help a lot.

These Pics shows Gold- Seller Bots, just as an example. Unfortunally the Chat-Window don't show up their Spamming.
You are right with your point. But i hope Trion will make a difference between Gold-Seller-Bots and other real Players.

We still need server restarts!!!!!!!

It's still a break of forum rules, either way round ;-)

And no, if I got this right, it's a pic of AFKing (alts?) that avoid the idle kick by random jumps & moves every now and then. To collect labor points (as these are bound to account, not only char) - and not of Gold-Seller-Bots.

Grr, you did it whilst I was at dinner, curse my life.

I really don't think a daily restart is going to anything at all, all that will happen is they relog in and just abuse to avoid being afk kicked. Bring in 15 minute afk kick timers and then you might actually start getting somewhere ^^

Sry dragos, just seeing it...:

As you may see in the announcement, he said the servers will be restarted on monday(!) the 23rd. But as monday (tomorrow) is the 22nd, you can assume it to be a typing error, meaning monday the 22nd instead of 23rd.

So tomorrow morning 5AM GMT will be flushing restart.

And TBH, a 05:00 is kinda useless for EU since there is none or minimal queues at that time (actually none). Best thing to do is do random restarts, one during the day and one around peak/prime time.

Dragonskull

That's what I have suggested in the announcement thread... making it 5PM instead of 5AM would make ALOT more sense... And most sense would be random with short time InGame announcement for every non afk player to prepare... I hope I'll get some official feedback on that suggestion...

yeah, i hope Scapes will response to this thread again, just because its the easiest way to keep the que at a "normal" level! just restart the server every 2-3 hours with an announcment, so the active players are able to log in again and the afk bots will be sorted out!

in best regards, Shibu, LmiR

give 10 LP regen while offline(not only online) for patron status and it will remove some players from game in "afk" = low queues on this amount of players. They willn't leave character online to receive this bonus.

Agreed. Restarts wont help you and kicking people at character select no. Just no. The reason as to so many people idling in the game is because we are -forced- to idle in order to do something else then kill for hours on end because you decided to craft 1 - and only 1 full set off tier 1 - tier 2 armor.
If they changed it so a Patron earned 10 LP online AND offline - idling issues would disappear.

LIKEWISE. Think a bit guys. That queue is several hours long and does NOT give a specific nor a just slightly accurate ETA. What you are asking people to do while sitting in hour long queues is to sit and ♥♥♥♥ing stare at the queue for hours instead of doing REAL LIFE STUFF while queuing because afk can and will lead to you having to requeue because you went off to do meaningful stuff.. Would you like that - hell no you wouldn't like that.

I just feel as though EU is on the backseat.

Why are there no restrictions yet on the EU servers, NA has had them for a while yet and Scapes you said your self its the most populated server you have.

I might be missing something but it seems strange
