Robert, will this fix allow us to come back to the dungeon? Or will it just “fix” the crashes and dc?

Some of us have unstable connection or GW2 is moody with our PC and randomly crashes(like mine when changing maps, or during a zerg ). Can you answer, so i can just give up of the place prematurely and stop having hope?

to be honest- the wait is making me angry too.

in my oppinion they should put all their resources on fixing this. (like stop working on the winterfest event, hire more people to work in this etc)
this is really game breaking for me and should be number one on their priority list.

i know that most disconnects are not caused by gw2- but not having the option to rejoin your party makes playing fractals a pain in the a**, especially in higher fractals when they get more time consuming.
i feel like playing a hardcore game where you loose all your progress when you fail.
just with the little difference that the fail isnt dying (so your fault) but caused by random issues you cant control.

but probably people like me arent the majority and therefore this issue is not the top priority…

We’re aware of the problem and are working on an active fix. Very sorry about this, hopefully it will be fixed soon.

You were able to fix exploits in a matter of days, but when it comes to making a dungeon not disconnect, or at least open it up like the other dungeons instead of the “no rejoin” policy? I’m quickly losing faith in your programming abilities.

Well lets be honest. It doesn’t seem like this “emergency” path (as devs RUSHED to fix exploits) was tested in any serious manner. It is clearly evident by the gamebreaking bugs the path iteself introduced.

Seriously? You bugged jumping AND the fractal that you fixed an exploit that allowed easy completion.

For real, the most pressing issue is not the number one issue (to players)… it’s taking the extra 5-10 minutes to down arch-guy three more times than normal.

Think of it as an Extended Diminished Returns Experience (EDRA).

EDRA is FUN! Since EDRA is based on RNG in Fractals of the Mist we can be sure that it is fun. Anyone can DC at any point and is then unable to come back – something which adds an additional flavor to this new form of dungeon.

EDRA protects the economy. Since Fractals of the Mist is intended to be done by 5 players, EDRA offers players a safety net against too cheap Globs of Ectoplasm and rare weapons, and/or armor.

EDRA adds challenge. Have you ever felt the frustration of Fractals being too easy? EDRA adds challenge to Fractals by adding the potential experience of experiencing a 4, 3 or even 2 player Fractal of the Mists run. It is impossible to not be excited with so much RNG around. Also, experience.

EDRA is ever evolving: being unable to reconnect after a DC in Fractals of the Mists is not the only way that EDRA will be implemented in the game. To combat the rarity of EDRA, it has been introduced on trial in the Cliffside Fractal where the final encounter becomes unfinishable on a RNG basis.

I can say that I am very excited by the introduction and expansion of EDRA and I hope you are too.

Good news there is another issue because of this and the group leader thingy who can’t kick, cannot be kicked.

Because she got dc during the boss, we all got dc… Please give us some update about it or anything because this is starting to be really annoying and just prevents us from playing.

Nope, the most common will be the senseless update where everyone can rejoin, so organized abusers will kick players at last boss of 3rd/maw fractal inviting guildies. 7 minutes, all dailies 8 10 20 30 40 done. Like dungeons’ abuse.

As bug, obiouvsly , players going inside splitted or moving to fractals no more together, duoing. Wanna bet?
QA and testers? WE are the testers of this funny post i wrote , and well, was truly online playing dungeons until a few days ago.

I’ll admit right off the bat that I don’t have a clue about programming but if one works for a major company like ArenaNet and is working on a salary (paid pretty well I assume) to fix bugs, shouldn’t they be able to do it within days..even hours? It’s been 3 weeks and counting…plus Mr. Hrouda just pretty much admitted that they have no clue how to fix this bug “give us more time please/working on a fix/not ready yet”. As another person in this thread said as well, I’m losing faith in your programmer’s abilities.

i don’t have a clue about programming/coding, either. but from what i’ve gathered, there are (substantial) differences between the dungeon systems and the one they implemented for the fractals. i think that might be because of how the difficulty levels/scales work, but i’m not entirely sure.

This needs to be elevated to a level of actual importance. I know that ANet only fixes stuff that benefits players and couldn’t care less about about stuff that kitten on players.

You said that you don’t work on the d/c issue, only on fixing exploits. Guess what. Go join the kittening team that’s working on d/c and make yourself useful.

I REALLY hope this is fixed by the 14th, by then it will be 1 month after the issue the dungeon was introduced and this issue has been present. I don’t care who’s working on what this is a MAJOR issue that hasn’t been corrected, if this is not fixed by then then I will probably quit this game and move on to another one where major problems are quckly addressed.

Just here to leave my rant about that issue…
Happened to me twice the last three days, one time at the bonus fractal boss, one time in the third fractal.
It was my fault one time because I could have prevented that dc. It was very frustrating nevertheless (I almost rage-uninstalled ^^).

I really hope for a fix soon (and I mean the real soon).

P.S. love the game nonetheless

Bumping this!

This is a pretty detrimental issue, as people are really doing nothing BUT Fractals now, so getting a group for anything else besides Fractals takes significantly longer than it used to. Because of that, people with this recurring problem are pretty much SoL in-terms of general gameplay options.

Especially me, where I’ve already crafted, explored, and whatnot.

As someone with limited play time – I’ve basically given up on FOTM. I’ve had so many runs aborted due to people getting DC’d that it’s just not worth the investment of time.

The thing that really sucks is that I see a lot of people still chugging away at it, and the levels people are asking for just keep going up. I guess others have more fortitude for the DC problem than I do (or more free time) but the end result is the same – FOTM was already not a great thing for less hardcore players, and issues like this one are just making this issue worse.
