ArenaNet On Guild Wars 2′s Grouping Issues
Guild Wars 2 players have been reporting issues with grouping; when traveling to a different zone, parties are inevitably divided amongst different overflow areas and unable to regroup. ArenaNet claims this is a bug rather than a feature and are working “around the clock” to find a solution.
RPS received the following statement from ArenaNet:
“We currently have a couple serious bugs with one of our important back end systems. This error is causing the loss of trading post, players to sometimes be separated and unable to travel to each other when switching maps and entering overflow servers, and numerous guild errors. We are very sorry for this inconvenience and are currently working around the clock to try and remedy this error.”
“When this bug is fixed overflow servers will keep parties together and players will be able to travel to the same overflow server as any friend or guild member who is in an overflow.”
I’ve personally experienced the trading post issue — by which I mean I’ve been unable to access the trading post entirely. At least ArenaNet is aware of these issues and is working to resolve them.
