    I do wargod on storm and I have a hard time getting my assists in 2 games before reset. Will after the 3 hours closed xserver will be open again for 3 more hours of wargod? for all servers? Storm has the most players from my understanding of all servers and these options aren't helpful for the east coast servers or lionheart.

    Sorry for the large text, it needs to be visible *beaten tigey*

    Croxe said events windows will be extended if need be, don't pick the option just because of wargod, you will have more time

    It's no longer possible to glitch, that's the whole point of this time change. All servers are now the same time as xserv.

    Only thing I can imagine is if server time gets way out of sync again. Storm and xserv were 10 minutes apart at one point, so exploiters can still get in a few hops--or at least hop to xserv and stay there for (presumably? I don't actually know what happens if you stay) effectively two resets a day.

    Technically, Lionheart could also have that same situation apply to them.

    No, option 1 means that xserv is closed for everyone 21-2400 PST (LH time), no matter the server.

    Ok....9pm west = 12am east.....ummm...

    Enough votes to carry through but I will not be voting.

    The fundamental issue here is xp gains from 80-90. Since this "fix" which really "fixes" nothing except to further kill x-server and a few events during certain times, does not "fix" our leveling rates it really is quite useless.

    Way to miss the point entirely. We want bonus xp back. Make a poll about it and see what the answer is. Play the game like a normal player instead of in GM mode and realize what it is we actually want.

    This is so tiring. I really feel like quitting.

    Due to the large gap between cash shoppers and "most" non-cash shoppers PvP died on Eyrda about 2 patches ago. So yeah cept for the big boys everyone else is now PvE anyway.

    Of all fixes this is the only three options that were conceived!? Seriously!? I will vote for option 1 yet I feel like these are just crappy options to have to choose from. As if hmm will you vote to kill your mom, or vote to kill your dad, or your best friend. None of these are the answer. I say fix the issue instead of giving us options that impact the serrver player base. Just fix it. nuf said.

    I voted for option number one.

    And while we're at it, bring back the fusion agents at the NPC.

    Thank you.

    So just because you don't like PvE, the PvP servers shouldn't get to have cross server? :rolleyes:

    People should have been asked about these options BEFORE any changes were made. Show some respect to your players and they will respond with loyalty. They are mostly working adults who bring money in this game so be sure set up professional relationships with your playerbase, don't muck us around. I never cared how much exp other people on other servers get as long as I can come in from work and enjoy well planned evening around family responsibilities and in-game events.

    Thank you,

    I vote option one, with the 1 hour late spawn on EB bosses I could never attend due to work, most likely id quit.

    why can't we have a option where x-server will follow east coast timing so that they cannot have the exploit.

    And the rest of us can have back our original timing.

    As for wargod event for Lionheart, I believe if u take the quest from the npc before the new day start in x-server, we still can complete the reward after 2 FF.

    no that is different to option to that allows the glitch still there but it is then abuseable for lionheart

    option 2 is eryda/storm stay at there new server time but lionheart goes back to its orginal time and xserver is closed for 2 hrs daily. same as option 1 but xserver is closed for 1 hr less , which is not fair to any storm or eryda people.

    we all picked a specific server for a reason. either for the reason it suits our time zones or because we wanted only pve or pvp . changing either of these at this point of time destroys the reason people choose a specific server and goes back on all pwe have stated in past about changing a pve server to pvp etc

    The server times being shifted is not ideal and we see this as a stop gap to hinder the exploitation of daily resets. We would like to get them back to normal in early July as these require heavy developer support.

    In order to do that there are other sacrifices that must be made to both close the cross server exploits and satisfy the most people. You the players are going to decide the final solution that works best for the majority of you and we will get that solution implemented. For those that asked if we could just closed down the cross server and return to how things were before, that is not an option as cross server is now fundamentally integrated in Forsaken World's core design and we would never get support for that.

    This poll will close tomorrow at 7pm PT. You final decision will be put into a request and sent to the developers for implementation so please spread the word about this poll.

    Option 1: We move home servers back to their original time. Cross Server is closed from 00:00-03:00 ET and 21:00-24:00 PT. This will primarily impact Lionheart as you will be unable to access cross server in your prime-time.

    Option 2: Storm and Eyrda would be moved to Central Time. Lionheart Would be moved back to PT. Cross server would be closed from 22:00-24:00PT on Lionheart. This impacts both East and West servers. East servers would have events and spawns trigger 1 hour later than normal. Lionheart would be locked out of cross PvP in the later portion of their prime-time.

    Option 3: We keep all servers on Central Time. Cross server PvP is open at all times. Events and spawns on East Servers occur 1 hour later. Events and spawns on Lionheart occur 2 hours earlier.




    I vote for Option 3

    I would like to thank croxe, that he did listen to valid arguments and put up this vote, I hope it will make to final remake.

    As with you said that the Wargod will be for them adjusted (while this doesnt affect me much, since I am not one of those server) I think the best option for everyone is the first one. I think people been just mad about Xserver thats why they wanted to remove it, but at the end of the day they would miss it.

    the logical choice is ofcourse option 1

    3 hours reduced from PvP time wont be felt,
    Everyone is busy doing PvE stuff to level up anyways

    the decision had been made long before the poll

    they just offered us the "priviledge" of choosing it

    So incase QQers decided to do their thing, theyll just say "majority decision"
