Wait around about half hour, repeat lfg and the number and get nothing.
Well that's your problem.

Change that LFG to LFM.

something like this really needs to be in the game, this site is always open on a window of chrome (with other tabs for gw2spidy, guru, a forum for my server, guild website, guru, etc.)

anyways, I decided I'm not going to do the monthly this month.  Spent most of the day doing fractals and still having DC issues within my groups where 1-3 people DC or crash, and I still can't get out of level 1.  I'd do the WvW, but its not even worth it anymore to me because of all the issues I keep finding with FotM.

People seems to think that they can cater to everyone with the Achievements. They can't, so they decide to cater to those that plays the whole game.

If we are to take those into account that does not like Fractals, we would have to take those into account that don't like Dungeons, those that don't like DEs, those that don't like WvW and so on, and we would quite soon find that there would be NO possible combination that everyone would agree with.

at the very least dungeons, DE's, WvW, aren't as buggy as fractals right now

I haven't even done one fractal yet. Looks like I won't be getting this monthly done.

Maybe this Fractals monthly is one of their solutions to get more people trying it for the lower difficulties. Or maybe they couldn't be arsed thinking of something else so it was more "We'll just do Fractals again!"

I actually think they should have done dungeons instead to get more people back to more of the game.

They could have incorporated dungeons and Fractals imo. Fractals is a dungeon anyway (or series of mini dungeons). So have the achievement attainable in either regular or fractal dungeons... simple fix for everyone.

Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!

I really think the monthly needs to be redesigned. I don't really care for WvW nor do I for instance runs. I might do one or two on a whim, but I usually never do 5+ in a month. Not my thing anymore. So I feel like I just ignore the monthly because too much of it is stuff I don't want to do. I can't be the only one. I'd rather see them just add in tons of "goals" for the month and each time you complete one you get a reward. That way you still get a reward for completing some of the monthly instead of nothing at all. I hate all or nothing. Which is probably another reason I dislike the instances rewards are basically all or nothing.

You're confusing this with "gaining rewards because I demand/expect them".

There's NOTHING stopping you from playing how you wish, ArenaNet isn't obligated to reward you for how you choose to play, as oppose to their idea of involvement.

except there are only 2 ways to get mystic coins....$$ and monthly/dailies! Kind of like how you are forced to do one instance if you want an ascended ring....even anet admitted that was not a good idea on their part. Why is it suddenly a great idea to limit another item?

Play however you want, you don't HAVE to have the monthly quest completed there is noone holding a gun to your head. There's plenty of other things to do if you choose.

As for LFG....go get some friends. Social game, be social, play with same people...hell...and I know this'll be controversial...join a guild of likeminded people I mean there's at least 8 of you in this thread moaning, PM each other and you can start your own guild and do all the stuff us sociable people have been doing since day zero with MMO's.

Grouping up, doing stuff and having fun....

Good luck in your endeavours.

I honestly believe they should have a separate WvW monthly and PvE monthly. Like PvP is separate from PvE.

I think they should put anything that requires a group into some 'dungeon monthly', and only have soloable content in the PvE monthly; As someone who enjoys WvW I'd also love a WvW monthly. IMO they should just add a separate monthly for PvE (solo), dungeons, SPvP and WvW - they cover all their bases that way.

But /shrug... whatever, as people say the rewards not good enough to force me into doing it when they fill it with forced group requirements; still irritating though.

Edit: I would also make the monthly rewards mutually exclusive so you can only complete one of  four per month; that way players don't feel forced into farming the rewards from all four, but always have an option that suits their playstyle.

Fractal is fine, I am just worried that I may not be able to complete the monthly this time because of the wintersday event achievement.

I'd love to see this done. As it is, this will be the second monthly I won't touch.

Tbh, all the bugs in fractal arent a bad thing, considering most of them just makes the runs go faster.

no they don't.
as my previous post...

- but had lots of problems with people DC'ing halfway with no way for them to get back in.
- just this past week had several guildmates who were getting kicked off the game
when they play fractals for some time (only time they had errors before),
then they can't log back in a 'security error messages' for half an hour.
- had experienced lots of progress blocking bugs in the fractals as well, like hammer not respawning
  even when all of you went back to a checkpoint, end ice fractal boss not returning to the fight area
  after going up, ect.

even though have gotten rings from it, experienced the most
bugs from it than any other dungeon/de/gametype.

I don't mind content I don't like if there are other ways to achieve something. I had 4 fractals and 3 dungeons by chance last month and I decided to not fulfil the rest of the fractals and dungeons although it would have been possible (with my guild) because I hate dungeon content. Period. I can get karma with the dailies. Not as much as with the monthlies, but I hope enough for the fortunately coming ascended-per-karma. If ascended will not be available via karma or will need ridiculous amounts of it, I will quit anyway, wether monthlies are easy or not.

In all honesty, "play the game how you want to play it" is a poor excuse to complain about achievements. Because, if you want to play for the achievements, you can't really complain about said achievements.

Fractals are ok, I've enjoyed them so far and the leveled content does suck pretty bad (no one is ever on your max level when you need them), but with a guild it's doable.

however monthly achievement is more then just an achievement, it is 30 mystic coins and 10 jugs of karma 4000-5000 karma each. this is alot of money or big part for legendary and a whole lot of karma.

I just would have like to see them put dungeons instead of fractals to bring life back to old dungeons.
