Since 2 days the chain seems to be broken :

They don't follow up anymore.
Bridge->lieutenants->overlord.
Or the time inbetween has been increased significantly.

Anyone noticed this? (or on other events?)

I understand they want to tackle stuff when it goes to fast (karma/xp/whatever) farming.
I would have expected a "reward" nerf. Not a fun nerf. Waiting aint fun. Traveling cost coin. Besides the event chain i have no reason to go kessex. :s

Any info on what happened? The chain was still good till a few days ago.

I've actually noticed a drastic increase in time myself since before December. I used to do that chain of events to very quickly get my events daily done for the day. Or monthly. I don't even remember anymore. My brain turned off during the daily achievement farming.

But yeah. What was once my fastest method of getting them out the way is now actually the slowest. However, you said you noticed the difference a few days ago? Has it got longer still or is it a bug that's affected only certain servers?

If this is the case, this makes me sad.  I am just getting ready to head into Kessex for the *mumbles something about a number that is way higher than it should be* time and I was honestly looking forward to being able to run this particular event chain and get a nice reward for a *relatively* small amount of time.  I haven't been back to Kessex since the last time I ran through and completed it, so I will have to check once I get around to playing again.

*crosses fingers and hopes its not true and only a server bug* :)

I'm on seafarers rest (eu). Befor past few days (2 max 3) :
Bridge->lieutenants->Warlord   followed up eachother with no delay, as soon as one was completed the next started. After warlord however there was a short delay for the bridge to start again. This delay has always been there i think. I have done it for the daily too (laurels).

But yesterday and today I find kessex abandoned ander after the bridge nothing happens for a while (havent timed it yet).

So I am wondering indeed if its bugged or nerfed. Therefor asking if anyone else experienced this.
I'm not planning to get into the wp goldsink to travel for events, neither do i plan to wait.
It leave me no reason to do these events anymore for my max levels. Less choise in what to do.

In my experience, the more people on the map (or maybe in the vicinity of the events), the faster the events respawn.

Hmm. Not so sure about the number of people changing the time. Its possible. It just seems sporadic these past two weeks. Sometimes its quick but others its slow. I've done the chain like three times back to back with only ~8 people. And I've seen it wait for 15 minutes when there was 20+ clearing it.

Plus the server transfer change made a whole lot of people move, and i see alot less overflow servers in general maps now. Maybe they were like everything else and being in an overflow borked it and made 'em respawn faster than normal. So maybe your server just cleared out.
