Default Simulated Respawns 11/1/18 ->


It has been a little over a year since the simulated respawn system was put into place. I believe this has been a mostly positive change which allows smaller guilds and/or pickup groups access to content similar to what may have occurred in the 1999-2001 timeline due to emergency patches and downtimes. It also brings us more in line with the quantity of raid targets which should have been spawned due to the aforementioned patches.. because we don't have multiple patches per month.

Although the 2 simulated respawns per month worked in theory, late month occurrences led to players camping the timers. Starting in November, the simulated respawn system will work like this:

0-3 Simulated Respawns will occur each month; 1-3 being the normal amount, and 0 existing as a possibility if we cannot do them at all.

I hope this change serves to keep the simulated respawn system alive and random while reducing the desire to camp the timers themselves.
