I just don't understand why some people, specially high TCP ones, have to rush BB raid within 15-20 minutes at the expense of an entire squad or two not getting an SS reward (possibly only obtaining A/S or even E/F).
How can this happen? To put it simply, they put all the high tcp players into a single squad and proceed to obliterate everything much faster than the other 1 or 2 squads. Then they do 3-4 runs which leaves the other squad/s having insufficient points to reach SS. It also guarantees everyone in their squad to earn SSS. Not to mention there are some people who, for the love of god, do Core twice. This renders an entire squad wasting their time and effort because the former wants to take advantage and save their precious time.
I can understand if they do this if the other squad/s can't finish the run because they dissolve due to DCs/crashes or just not enoguh firepower/skill before they got wiped out by one-shot mechanics. But sometimes it's not like the 'weakest' squad can't finish the run or finish it fast enough. It's just that Squad 1 (usually) finishes the run SO much faster. They don't even care about balancing the squad and spreading high TCP players across the 3 squads so that runtime would be pretty much the same for everyone.
It's suffice to say that this is a very inconsiderate move. I don't want to create an issue and "rant" in the forum but being partied with these people for the last couple of weeks is starting to take a toll on me. I'm already sacrificing my sleep time just so that I can play this raid. I just want everybody to have their fair share of experience and rewards.
I don't want to experience this again. My solution? I'm just going to create my room from now on, or atleast pick leaders who I had good experience with.
P.S. If you're the leader, you can drag a player's avatar to arrange his/her placement in squads. 9/10 rooms I've joined don't even know how to do this. Please balance the team. Thank you.
I'm surely not the first person to have brought this up, but has there ever been any consideration for adding some additional overflow/BB raid windows into the current schedule? The way the times stack up currently, both the opening times for Beelzebub and Overflow are almost entirely overlapped with NA's working hours (Average 8AM-5PM). There is some space for those on the east coast of NA (3 hour ish window from 5pm to 8pm?), but this window progressively shrinks as you move west across the continent. Personally, I'm on the west coast and have pretty much zero chance to get any access to endgame content during the week.
For reference (Add 3 hours for conversion of PST to EST):
10-11 UTC 2(AM)-3(AM) PST
15-16 UTC 7(AM)-8(AM) PST
18-19 UTC 10(AM)-11(AM) PST
20-21 UTC 12(PM)-1(PM) PST
23-24 UTC 3(PM)-4(PM) PST
0:30-1 UTC 4:30(PM)-5(PM) PST
1:30-2 UTC 5:30(PM)-6(PM) PST
16 - 2 UTC 8(AM)-6(PM) PST
With the times laid out as above, hopefully its clear enough to see the time restrictions. Assuming those of us who have jobs have on average a 30 minute to 1 hour commute, that pretty much takes out all the available access times [for the west coast or anyone who's unfortunate to have to work long hours on the east]. I'm not asking for the times to be changed, but as this server does service both NA and EU, it would only be fair that access times be equally available for both regions. It would make far more sense if Overflow was open every other hour or even every two hours, while Beelzebub was open for a full 12 hours (16 or 24 would honestly be more accommodating, but I won't be greedy). I'd even be happy if a tiny 30 minute window was available between 2UTC and 8UTC was opened. At least that would give us a sliver of opportunity to get a little bit done...
First run 5 people crashed and were unable to rejoin due to the rejoin feature also being broken and returning users to the hub, it's unfortunate that a fun raid is being ruined by the massive amount of dcs/crashing people are experiencing.
If anything please hotfix the rejoin feature to actually work, it feels awful crashing only to come back and be forced to take the rank F rewards because of the rejoin feature failing.
Did you know that a Canadian server will be coming out?
Compared to the korean server, Enmasse AKA World server treats us like trash. few examples of this is World server being 10 times more expensive than korean server(1 gacha in world = 11 gachas in korean server and that's with the better bitna gachas), credit sinks being more, Korean server giving away +14 boosters like candy, full sets in the store for 15-25$, faster updates, better rewards on the events and way more.
Korean server got their first +14 on this current rice fields event and guess what we're getting: nothing. nothing worth spending your time on. we also havent been given a free awakened tiamat, they still give us only a +12/+13 box per month. closers world doesnt give you options of buying the full set from store like the korean closers, there is no private bm despite players wanting it for months and they delayed beelzebub to the point where it doesnt make any sense at all. You can only +17 lv85+ gear and we have lv83 gear aka purification. giving players the enhancement revamp that involves beelzebub gear before giving beelzebub raid is one of the most stupid decisions I've ever seen. Despite most of the active playerbase complaining about all these problems, saying they want content, better rewards, better sales these are the results:
Beelzebub gets pushed back to the point where its stupid
black friday sales are worse than last year's sales, there hasnt been any good things at all
gap between closers korea and closers world opening up even more
2 Months ago, Rockyroad told me that the gap between closers world and closers korea was 6 monnths. 2 months have passed and you didnt do anything. you have 4 months to release 5 raids: Beelzebub, Misook(A10 Chapter 1),Purification V2,Beelzebub V2, Maid(A10 Chapter 2). good luck
With this its been shown that EME and Naddic clearly doesnt care about their playerbase, what they want and they are just going to go on their pace until the server dies out. Despite the outrage on Task force Nata patch discussion and players literally begging for updates on discord, bear saying he is working on it, enmasse staff telling us Singlebear and BearShoes trying to work something out, nothing really changed.
Naddic shows us that they only really care about their own server(Korea) by releasing the Canadian server despite Canada being a part of north america, enmasse being the world server (EU and NA). there might be some competition on Canada VS World server.
on the bright side, Korean closers are giving away perma signature sets, +15 boosters, 300 washing machines and 5 character levelups. I'll just go there if enmasse keeps being like this
Mod's Note: Please do not mention private servers, thanks!
