lol, the current implementation is causing serious problems. Also I've never even heard of what you're talking about, delaying the placement algorithms. I don't really believe that. I certainly believe they're not working though. And you all can defend this system all you want, but ArenaNet's utter silence on the issue since release and their limited dismissive response during the announcement of the feature when concerns were raised is deplorable. There is no reason for any of the players to give them the benefit of the doubt right now. Trust needs to be earned, and you don't earn it by being utterly silent while your players clamor over the most controversial update you've added to the game. Regardless of its effect on the game, this whole Megaserver issue is an abomination of PR with their customers.
