Duty Finder TrollFollow

Have you guys experienced this? Your duty finder keep appearing and cancelling every 5-10 secs or so because someone is withdrawing, and this keep happening like 10+ times before you can actually get started on dungeons. I'm pretty sure it's done by the same person.

This happens a lot especially if you are waiting to do high level dungeon or primal battle hard mode. This is really annoying.

This happens with any dungeon finding system. It gets even worse when you get the kind that just sit there forever until the timer runs out. Just something to get used to really.

However they did post about there being issues with the duty finder today so people could be DCing from it and causing your sudden loss in party memebers.

I've had it go off, and then the 45sec timer runs out, so it reQs.
Is it a troll? Who knows. Maybe at the other end, that person was doing something else and would rather have finished that before the dungeon, so the declined.
I notice it is more often DPS, either they AFK (45sec timer goes down) or they decline.

Do consider that lately dps queues for anything but the first three dungeons can be over an hour long. My normal wait for a Haukke Manor queue has been 70-80 minutes.

A lot can happen in that amount of time. By the time the queue pops, you might not be in a position to accept it, you might not want to do the dungeon anymore (and forgot you were in queue for one), you might have gotten up to go to the bathroom, any number of things.

I wouldn't expect someone to sit through a 70-minute queue just to ***** with 3 strangers by declining it.

Happens to me all the time and I also noticed is always DPS/DD (Pick your flavor). Go figure, the ones that are always complaining about not being able to find a spot in Duty Finder. :|

DPS/DD are everywhere. Last few dungeons for Story quest line, I've ran out and sat at the dungeon... people try to put groups together but it is always the same: never any healers.

I may change my plan and level a healer 1st, can't go wrong with having a "wanted" class/job to get stuff done :D

So very true. I'm a GLA/PLD and the longest I have ever waited is probably less than 5 minutes.

This happens to me all the time and its always 1 of the dps that refuses to join in. I am a healer and for the lower lvl dungeons its great but once you get to the higher lvl dungeons even healers get a long wait time. I waited over an hour yesterday for darkhold only to get the 90k error once inside. Then I waited another 30 minutes once I got back in and luckily finished it with 2 minutes to spare.

A lot of the time for me personally, I'll find myself just starting a FATE or absolutely having to complete something else before randomly veering off to do a duty.

And yeah, everyone and their dog always goes DD, but really and truly leveling a healer or tank is NOT that horrible in terms of time spent compared to DD. You may get a few less points in FATEs here and there, but you'll be guaranteed a spot no matter what. They really should expand the Duty Finder to start allowing 'odd' parties, such as three DD and on healer or whatnot, to alleviate some of the trinity lock. Dungeons is one thing, but you really don't need a standard setup for a lot of the Guildhests.
