No one can get into instances on the midgard server currently... I'm waiting with a bunch of people at Lord of the Inferno recieving all sorts of different error messages. Anyone else seeing this on the other servers?

Ultros, spent 30+ min trying to join as a party. I'd say that's not working as intended lol

While that on its own isn't unheard of if you're a DD, the problem is this also extends to basic quest instances. Some people are currently getting stuck interacting with NPCs because the server won't error out.

I queued for Ifrit right after the servers opened up and and had no problems, well except for the new people not wanting to get it through their head that they have to ignore Ifrit when the nail spawns so you don't auto-lose... 4 tries later... lol

Well the problem for us is we had a full "light party" (me as the healer) trying to queue but would get various messages saying "unable to join" or "a party member withdrew." Also, before we could even try again we had to re-log. But yea, big problem if you won't open the normal entrances to the dungeons and force duty finder, and even worse when its halting people trying to get through the main story. Sounds like they may have a couple different issues going on with it.

Edit: fixed typos bekuz gud tiper me be

Well compared to the wait you might would need if it was server only, that's probably a good number and don't forgot ppl still need to be listing themselves up for it anyway.
When I did Ifrit I had to wait like 5 mins I think compared to the less than 1 minute finding a group for other dungs and I was a Tank.

Oh, we never got in. The entire time was spent just trying to get in the queue or getting everyone to accept. We had a fully "light party" so none of that should've been an issue. Looks like they just gave us a system message about it, so I'll just assume that my bug report was the one that pushed them over the edge to decide to get started working on it Smiley: grin

Just taking this as a hint to catch up on some sleep. Aside from this, server stability seemed okay once the log-in issues died down. Having queues in 2013 still sucks, but that pretty much lies solely on their server architecture and I wouldn't expect overflow servers with how the DF is messing up right now.

The fact that it's only happening to the NA/EU servers, much like last time, worries me. I'm not sure the devs are giving enough weight to their western playerbase to make this game enjoyable. At least in ffxi there were shared servers... so there was less bias.

I formed my own party and was able to defeat Ifrit before the servers went down. Was quicker than waiting for the duty finder.

You still have to used the "broken" Duty finder to enter the instance is the problem. Even if you make your own party, it doesnt solve that stitch

Wow so the duty finder broke? I guess I got lucky since I used it right when servers went up to kill ifrit. I had no wait at all even when I cancelled it the first time so I could turn in my level 20 conj quest. Right when I hit join the confirmation window came up.

Player DDOS essential is my first guess. There are a lot more people in EA then there were in P4 I bet.

Yeah! I'm kinda getting aggravated since there's not much I can do. I can't level any combat classes since I only have access to ACN and their first quest is an instanced battle, and I can't level up my crafting classes much since I need the retainers to free up my inventory.

If you find yourself on the fuzzy end of a loading screen because of this, you can usually just alt+f4 out of the game, log back in and you'll be back before the loading screen.

I know it doesn't help you get on with your quest or dungeon, but at least you can do SOMETHING.
