    Access into all content. This is insane now tbh! Over 2 hours queued for a duo. TWO HOURS lol!! The Eu server population is dead. It’s not because the dlc has ran its course etc. When the new dlc comes out, numbers will pick up for 2-3-4 days. The whales will come in and spend their mortgage money getting all feats, elite gear, collections etc. Then leave. The game will be right back to where it is now.

    The Eu server is done. Because there’s people still playing it doesn’t mean it’s not a dead server. Most people on it now are there to stand and socialise in the WT. or just there to stand outside LB talking crap.

    After running all content at end game... trying to run lower content for style feats, or multiple run type feats etc is becoming almost impossible. Paying for content that can’t be ran on a weekly basis - not just a slow few days. This is permanent!

    As devs - will you even have the curtosy to respond to this as being acknowledged?

    I’d like to know if there’s any plans to combat this? - and allow ppl access to lower tier content. Portals etc.. I don’t know how it would be implemented. I want to be able to run anything want or need to run per week before it resets. If I can’t consistently do that - I’ve np taking another very long break from the game.
    That’s not some silly threat etc. I’m not conceded enough to believe the game will go into meltdown over one player leaving lol! the game will obviously still go on as people leave. But it just simply means daybreak lose one more paying (a LOT of paying! a LOT) customer because its failure to accommodate.

    P.s. this is directly aimed at the devs to respond. Not turn into a ******** thread about how ‘you’ have np getting into content and joining empty leagues, or what time you play at etc. This isn’t the US server! This is the UE server. If you can do all your content - fabby for you!

    Begin rude isn't going to help you. People trying to give you solutions. Not all leagues are "Empty".
    There are good leagues out there that will help you. Are you on villain side? then yes, villain side is a problem.
    It's not very populated. Hero side is the most populated. And yes it is about Time zones. People have work
    and kids go to school, so yeah they aren't queuing at the times you are on, probably.

    Edit: Also it is weekend, so no devs are around to answer you.

    In all fairness.... The OP acting the way he is in the original post is kind of justified and that's because responses like these are given all the time.

    The OP isn't the only one who's been having issues running older content in attempt to grab more skill points, there's plenty of other people who've had this same issue.

    But per usual, we get these responses that in my eyes... are just telling people to shut up and keep quiet about this when it's actually something that the Developers messed up and should fix.


    Everyone who types this kind of response that "Get a League, using LFG will work, don't pug." I'm sorry, but not everyone shares the experience that you or others who type this response have had. People insist on telling others like the OP to get a league or to LFG is a lackluster response. You guys aren't recommending the OP a league that you know will run old content, you guys aren't recommending OP to friends or folks in the game that you know will run older content. It's one of the least helpful responses you could give to someone who's wanting the devs to fix a problem that they literally started.

    These responses insist that Leagues and LFG will always do the trick, but I know from personal experience.. That's far-fetched. When people are completely finished with feats in the content and have no more rewards, LFG becomes a pain in the butt to use. This applies even more so for some leagues out there, not every single league is entirely willing to put newer players and old content feats first. Most of the leagues out there towards end-game, will result in players wanting to do end-game content and only end-game content.

    It's a mixed bag, and PEOPLE(Not just you.) Need to stop treating the lack of old content queing up as a select few player issue, it's actually bigger than that. But more of the voices here on the forums are players simply running end-game content, the people like the OP who are running the older content is getting shut out by responses like these.

    Newer players also don't know about LFG because as some folks like Fatal Star mention from time to time, LFG isn't enabled for newer players.

    With all due respect, the OP is also justified in asking if the developers will ever respond or acknowledge this. They caused people to stop running older content with the release of game update 47 and cr relevancy, and they never once offered an incentive for players to turn back once they were completely done with everything that they needed from the old content.
    The devs made this mess, they need to fix it.

    Posts like these only give them(the devs) a reason not to fix the lack of old content being que'd. And while I do understand that DCUO has been geared plenty towards getting people to end-game as fast as possible, it only means that as content gets older and more people get the stuff that they need from content; the harder it is for folks like the OP to get feats on their toons if they absolutely need it.

    To the OP.... Hate to tell you but I am siding with Skyy on this one. You are having issues finding players to join you on teams? Well

    1) you are on the European server which never has had the population the US server had and there is just about nothing anyone, including the devs, can do about that. Want a larger player base... I KNOW this is possible so take your character(s) and switch to the US server.

    2) Hate to turn right around and rub your nose in your own comments by not only does the time of day but the day of the week play into how many potential team mates are out there. On the US server... there is always going to be a bigger population in the evenings (between the hours of 6PM and Midnight than any other time because school is out and dinner is over so the kids playing the game are home and available to be on line/in game until bed time. The Adults playing the game? Schedules vary of course but more people work between 9AM and 5PM so of course in the evenings, after supper, the population will always increase. NOW of course that is no help to anyone from Europe since at a minimum depending on which time zone your in there is at least a 6 hour time difference... HATE to bring it up but there is the really big thing called the Atlantic Ocean that messes with you fining anyone from the US on when you may be.. Your waking up for the start of a new day about the time most here are headed to bed.

    3. As Skyy brings up if you only play villains your situation is even more messed up because for years the game has had a much larger hero population than a villain population. Now the Devs did make some efforts to help with that by starting the cross faction team ups. If YOU are sitting for an hour waiting to find a team and at least part of that reason is because YOU don't want to be teamed with a HERO cause you are a VILLAIN ... then suck it up and change your settings. You are a human being playing an on line MMO and using a controller o to move a bunch of pixels around a screen to shoot at stuff, you are NOT "the Joker" To be perfectly honest I seriously doubt the Joker would waste time on an MMO unless there was a way t make a pile of money or KILL a whole bunch of REAL people by doing it,

    4) is based on Priorities.... Check out the LFG on the US server some time. it is almost always showing nothing but players/leaders looking to build/join END GAME content. And this gets even more pronounced in the evenings. If your job or in your case you time zone prohibits you from even thinking about being on line earlier in the days chances are there are a lot less folks out there looking for older content. They are doing the end game stuff while the population makes it easy to build/find teams.

    Now Lets get into some of the other things you ask about. I can not even recall when it was said but a year (or 2? ) ago when stat clamping was being screamed about Mepps came out and out right said they had no plans or intentions to add any more walk in portals because the ones they have now are among the reasons for some bugs/glitches. So short of a huge shift in company policy forget about that ever happening. Stat clamping? not a solution all that does is makes the content harder for the higher CR that are ignoring the stuff you want to run. And since they have all that content set up so those Higher CR only get an alternate reward box for their efforts making it harder for them to even complete that content would only drive even more away. UNLESS they do away with the current currency set up and go back to having everything available to purchase using MOV there are players that just are not going near that older stuff even without clamping because it doesn't help them increase their CR a bit.

    Did I say he can't ask? I sad he shouldn't be rude if he wants a reply. From the Devs included. I am not, but there are plenty of solutions for it. One of them is fighting a proper league. Or - finding other players with the same described issue to run with you. Hell, even use the forums to get to know other players to be able to play with them. You can't blame us for what the devs don't do or are doing, we have as much right to give our opinion as well. Begin rude not going to get anyone anywhere, and I trust me I know from personal experience.

    P.S Devs AREN'T around on weekends. It's a fact.

    Will you have the courtesy to ask them on a weekday, during the day, when they're working, rather than waiting for a weekend where they won't respond until at least Monday?

    Demanding courtesy is a two-way street. You can't ask for it without giving it.

    And being courteous means not making accusations about hypothetical futures. It means not making accusations about anything. Hostility isn't courtesy.

    Something needs to be done, honestly. I can't bring friends into the games ecosystem just to have them unable to progress gear wise or sp wise because nobody is in que.
  13. DaPhun48 Well-Known Player

    show me the rudeness. Which exact part did ‘you’ find rude? Then look at the bottom part. If ‘you’ found it rude - I’ve no interest in your opinion! I don’t care if you found it rude. This isn’t a post looking for friends etc It was aimed at the devs. I’d like to know if they plan on making content accessible as the player population has dwindled to such an extent - CONTENT CAN NOT BE RAN CONSISTENTLY.
  14. Caesar's Lion Dedicated Player

    Imagine how populated older content would have been this weekend if there were no mark restrictions, with everyone needing more catalysts.

    Unfortunately I don't see relevancy windows being removed, in part due to seals.
  15. Wade Spalding Loyal Player

    As I already said in a number of threads: player dependency has to go. Static group sizes need to be replaced by scaling content. STO can do it, Neverwinter can do it, it is time DCUO makes their new content that way, too, and starts working the old content over tier by tier. DCUO features a totally outdated game structure that no longer furthers the approach of gamers nowadays....
  16. Zoe· Loyal Player

    I suggest you read the forums rules.There is a constructive way to put on the table what you think in this subject,
    but you choose to attack everyone instead of accepting help. And again - this is the weekend, the devs aren't around
    to answer you.
  17. DaPhun48 Well-Known Player

    To the OP.... Hate to tell you but I am siding with Skyy on this one.

    hate to tell you this - but I’ve no idea who you are. Why would i be concerned who you side with? I’m not in the slightest bit concerned with anyone else’s opinion. Only looking an answer from the devs.

    I KNOW this is possible so take your character(s) and switch to the US server.

    I’m PS4! So that’s that out the window. I made an American account once also - too much lag to play it properly. And I get consistently around 100+ mbps.

    3. As Skyy brings up if you only play villains your situation is even more messed up because for years the game has had a much larger hero population than a villain population. Now the Devs did make some efforts to help with that by starting the cross faction team ups.

    Honestly - I think you just lost yourself in this rant. I felt like a was on acid by the end of this section.

    Truthfully - i just cba to even go into your madness about clamping etc. Why does clamping have anything to do with accessing a duo? The problem is player numbers. There aren’t enough players playing now for queuing events. LFG is almost useless you want to keep running end game content. Sit and shout out on shout and LFG, get no response. Ask league - no response, or... sorry bro - busy atm. Which is fine - ppl are doing their own stuff. So please...no more talk about the US side and how awesome it is no-matter what time of day or night. As stated in the beginning. EU SERVER!

    My apologies! You’ll have to excuse my spelling mistake, and my lack of knowledge regarding the devs working hours. See - i don’t live one these forums! And thusly - Was unaware that the dev team did not work at the weekends. I’d have assumed they had different staff members on different days. Totally my bad!

    I don’t leave after a few days. But I wasn’t being critical of whales! I was stating that upon release of the new DLC... that this will happen. Then the game will return to a handful of socialites.
  20. Wade Spalding Loyal Player

    Since the PS3 version is no longer supported, stuff bought on "EURO" accounts cannot be claimed on the US side anymore. Also, at no point in DCUOs history the subscription carried over. The OP would have to start over with a complete frash account, buying everythign he already paid for again to play on the US servers. It also does not work vice versa (US account on European servers).

    You can play cross-zones (log in, have the welcome screen freeze the game, restart, and the welcome screen does not show up again; do not open marketplace ever to avoid freeze), yet with none of your goodies for your toon.

    (Technical issue, the marketplace leaves the UI in DCUO non-responsive when called up "cross-zones", and since the welcome screen brings up the newest featured sales, even the welcome screen causes the non-responsive UI. BTW: I have brought up this issue myself several times in several threads over the past years, even before the PS3 was discontinued, and the devs never did anything about it. The freeze did not happen in the PS3 client).
