Then don't play at those times? Or perhaps make friends in-game who are awake when you are? Again, why is this hard?
And they don't disregard the issue. They outright solve it. Sure, you all need to be in the same instance to run fractals. Why? Probably has something to do with the dungeon being in a city instance rather than in the open world like the others. But that's besides the point.
You plan ahead and all guest on the same server. If it can't be with your "best" friends then why not other people you meet in-game? Or who are in the Guild you're in?
There are so many outside alternatives to consider that I stand by my reasoning that this isn't a problem and that the only REAL problem here is one's inability and/or outright laziness to go out and find some peeps in the world who (DERP) might share his sentiments.
One post on the official forums or even here dictating his timezone, when he would like to play and for how long perhaps and I can almost guarantee he'll get responses from like-minded players with whom he can group up with.
Problem, again, solved.
It's how I found my Guild for example.
Easy as pie.
Actually, it's ironic.
If so many people find this to be a problem, then maybe those people should just guest together on the same server for a day.
The supposed "issue", simply by existing, evolves into a "solution." lmao
And i'll flip my desk if this thread suddenly becomes a soapbox for entitled users whining that they shouldn't have to go out of their way to find a group to play with.
At that point I'll leave to go find my 2 year old nephew's binky cuz SOMEONE'S gonna need it. He'll cry, but it's for a good cause.
You are not even getting the point of this topic and are too busy arguing about your inability to think bigger picture and see thing from many angles than your singular and narrow view point of..."quit whining and do what i tell you" attitude....
It's not about server population, its not about timezones, its not about group with friends or not, it's not etc etc....we were all talking in hypothetical examples to explain our points of view.
Fact is no matter what crap you decide to spew out to try to backup your pointless argument...
Right now IF and it does happen IF there is no overflow in lions arch FACT you are unable to play with other players from other servers in fractals, that is a design flaw...
You do not seem to acknowledge this and try to push all the blame on the players...instead of the design mechanic causing the issue...
Are there work arounds? Yes, are there temp fixes? yes as has been said oh I dunno about 20 times now in this topic?
Yet you still choose to take the pig headed arrogant approach of long windedly saying " stfu whining qq newb and dont play at weird times and make some freinds loser!!!111!! its your fault there is an issue not the game....."
Dude seriously gtfo this thread....your clueless....it has NOTHING to do with lack of finding groups or timezones at the end of the day, it has to do with the game mechanics with fractals stopping some players from playing with other players....whether it be at 9pm, 9am in tim buk *ing tu or new york, with a zillion friends or no friends or any other ♥♥♥♥ eyes bullshit you want to spew out of your brain next....
If you still don't get it...then just grow a brain...your turning a general topic about a game design flaw and issue some players are experiencing into a personal attack about one person....
It has * all to do with me specifically....its an issue that can potentially effect all players...douche bag...
