Waiting for Rift to get back on track, I decided to tackle my remaining zone and IA achievement quest(s). Problem is, I find myself still waiting (worse than the dungeon queues), for many of the zone events never even show up (at least on the events channel on any server during the times I play, i.e., anywhere between 9am - 11pm GST). I know the zone events are tied to data (i.e., number of players in the zone to trigger a non-unstable artifact event). Many zones across Telara (from PTW/NT on down) are quite simply void of players. I was wondering if you could tie the zone events to a schedule (non-rng), e.g., say each zone event will start at a given hour, so many times a day? a week? or month?
Same goes with IA's, we seem to do the same zone over and over again in the random queue. Kinda miss the old system where you could choose which IA to do, but I am sure that will never come back, so maybe they could be broken out once again, as they once were, but this time on a schedule?
Just thinking out loud. Thanks for reading.
