Staying logged-in is a d1ck move... and you know it. Selfishness son, selfishness.

You know it's true. At least I have Tetris... and college football.

They should modify the exp bonus you receive from staying in a "resting" area to only come into play if you're logged out. Would provide a bonus for those who don't leave it idling.

They simply need a Idle log out timer. Its a no brainer. There is no reason to not already have one in place.

Yoshi's recent letter addressed that. It's on the back-burner which makes sense....but I am curious as to why they didn't have this very standard function already in-place.

I think there holding off on it due to them thinking after there fix everyone will be able to log in no problems....Unless they add alot more servers (which there not) this issue will last untill people quit and make room.

There are always way's around idle kick timers. I personally don't stay logged in but know people that do, just by adding an idle timer is only going to enrage a bigger portion of the player base than the ones that can't get on. It seems that in the early morning it's easier to get online with no que or server full message, try then or keep trying during peek times.

SE could place a reason to actually log out, decrease the amount of "rested" exp you gain while being in an inn/sanctuary while logged in. While increasing the amount one could gain while logged out for so long... something along them lines. Make logging out the norm.

Go to Inn. Place controller upside down against shelf or sofa so analog stick is pressed. Character runs constantly into the corner of the Inn room.

Even then, I'm sure most afkers would say "Playing with little or no bonus exp or not playing at all? [sarcasm] Tough choice [/sarcasm]".

You obviously have no idea on the whole development process of this game or any other game, **** even web site development would escape you. Putting the blame on the developers is just bad form. As a software/web developer it's not our idea on how the game/site is built. This comes from the higher up, who put faith in us as developers to accomplish what they are asking us to do. Obviously the developers did what they were asked to do, other wise there would be tons of patches/fixes thrown into the game.

Stop and think before you go off on a tangent only to make yourself look like a fool.

This is what Doc Brown was talking about in Back to the Future when he said, "Obviously the time continuum has been disrupted, creating a new temporal event sequence resulting in this alternate reality." So basically for SE, "only chance to repair the present is in the past, at the point where the time line skewed into this tangent."

Simple enough. Who's got a Delorean or train with a flux capacitor?

Personally I think they should make rested EXP available only when you're logged out. I see no reason standing around for hours on end in a town should give a player benefits of any kind. Logging out in an Inn should be the only way to get it.

I think they should add a FATE with NPC's named BobThePukeSlinger and Prophet Vahlmyth. Their NPC's would run in circles complaining and your goal is to do specific emotes like /taunt, /laugh, /cry etc. If enough people emote at them a rage meter above their heads will fill up at which point their heads explode and everyone gets xp and seals.

Realistically though, we should feel bad for them. Especially Bob. That level of animosity for people you don't even know is pretty unhealthy. You're going to get an aneurysm or give yourself cancer or something. Maybe you should settle down, put on your big boy PJ's and try to get some sleep. We all know your just cranky because you missed your nap.

As in FFXI we could stay logged in as long as we wanted, mostly to sell items from our own inventory. It would seem they left this ability in game for a reason and maybe it is going to come into play at some point, To change this would require much more than flipping a switch and would take a lot longer than just fixing what is broken, it's probably is a lot simpler to just wait until the beginning of the week when they have stated the fix would be implemented.

Yes, it's a **** move, but i havent been able to play for more than an hour since last wednesday. Why? Because no one logged out to make room. I doubt there would even be a problem if everyone simply logged out of the game.

I finally got in yesterday night before i called it a night. No way i'm going to play the login lottery again in the morning.

I'd rather be part of the problem than not be able to play the game at all.

I do not think this "current wold is full try again " nonsense has anything to do with the actual amount of people on a world. I've gotten the message several times right after I hit the start button and before any of the world information populates. How can it register my information before I have picked a world to load a character from? Unless it is a blanket mechanic identifying all worlds as being full, which begs the question: how many people are on a server? There aren't that many NA/EU players to fill every single world. The population caps must be really low.

5000 for each server. After that the server just refuses the connection and you get the 1017 error.

But there is also the log in server that handles every server's characters, so that's the one that is having issues when you get errors right when pressing start and trying to get the server list. It handles traffic of all the players, not just those on a single server.
