Request: Unfair spawn times?

Postby Decay » Mon Jun 05, 2017 6:04 pm

Thanatos has been seen spawning between 1-4 AM European time
Crimson Drake has been seen spawning around 1-6 AM European time
Refinery bosses has been seen spawning around the same times as well

Not sure about exact spawn times but during these times, most European countries have very little chance to participate, but if they really only spawn during those times, I am sure we can make it more fair. I'll start with two suggestions.

1# Completely random spawn times throughout the 24 hours of a day, fair to all.

#2 Pick spawn times that would work for most European countries and US states, then randomize these or have set varied spawn times. This would be a bit more complicated and not fair to countries outside Europe and US, I guess.

Please don't just shut down this suggestion, help think of ways to make things fun and fair.

Also, ok. Some things like reset may or may not be fair to Europeans, and also mini bosses that drop keys, but I am sure most or lots of people would prefer to be able to participate when the big bosses spawn.

I've seen the dragon spawn all throughout the day, not sure if that was changed but i've seen it in the morning, the afternoon, the evening, and the middle of the night (US central time).

Thanatos I believe is supposed to spawn at night for lore reasons? Undead, graveyard, night time, all that.

Refinery bosses - not really sure to be honest, never tried them in the middle of the night before reset.

I do get what you're saying and I think a lot of consideration has gone into spawn times. Truly random timers is shit too because there's no mechanic in place to tell you if a boss is up or not (excluding world walkers), and as you are probably aware blowing keys just to find things not up is pretty crappy. If anything I would say a rotating schedule, aka spawns every 25 hours, could be a thing.

FYI reset doesn't affect any boss timers, they are independent of that.

Guess we need to know what the spawn times really are before we can proceed

Crimson dragon is all day, starting 4 hours after DT.

Random spawning for OADs though is a bad idea, we do need oads that occur through out the day but we are lacking OADs really at the moment. I don't like random spawning because it focuses people to check areas constantly, which seems okay at first, but it is repetitive and boring as hell. It's already been proven to be pretty bad and alot of people get frustrated when no mob is there etc etc.

Things like crimson dragon is ok to spawn all day, which he does.

Generally we need OADs that have set times through out the day, really.

I thought some of the refinery is spawned an hour or so after DT?

Oh ok, that is great then. I guess we were just unlucky with the spawns so far.
Thank you for your quick reply, as always =).

refineary bosses spawn from 7-8am server time (all and most keys)

archfiend (dreads) spawns at 7am

Flame sally spawns at 9am.

I believe this is prime eu time correct?

Eu peeps have it hard for sure but also almost all oads and game play is around the east coast time zones. so alot of the states have a hard time as well. Dreads for me is 4am and 4pm and since i work it is rare to ever be able to do them. Not everyone can be happy and everyone will not be able to do every oad. But it would nice to see things spread out a tad more then they are now. I honestly liked how the dreads keys where spread out during the day and everyone at least had a chance to get in on the fun.

Well with a proper auction/trade market It would help with this too. And ensuring good oads are able to be run at set times.

I.E. Best shield at 8pm server time, and best helmet at 10am server time. You'll probably have to trade between people who run it, but both would be needed. etc.
