    Mentioned it in general forums last year and again today. The One Who Waits alert is popping an inordinate amount of times. Personally...if I had to guess...its been about 98% of my omnibus alerts since it was added into the omnibus instances.

    Omnibus was a huge development waste of time they could have just gave us a whole new revamp with the amount of effort they put into that Omnibus crap. what a shame such a failure attempt at bringing back old content. They just have the worst ideas the game needs PVP not this crap

    I have noticed this too.

    Likely because it is broken in the sense that it does not require any Roles, regardless of Role Optional Alerts being On or Off. (I personally have it on and just either don't blind queue or (max once a week per Toon) don't accept an Omni queue that I can't worst case solo on the current Toon)

    I do not get it particularly often myself, except if I queue it. I have noticed that it never seems to have any assigned Roles, as opposed to all (possibly except PZn, at least when people were complaining about that too) other Alerts. Even with Role Optional Alerts turned off, every other Alert will have at least 1 assigned dps, heal, tank or troll and the other 3 "any".

    It does seem unlikely that 4 ungrouped people all queuing Omnibus gets put together in OWW instead of 3 getting in an Alert that a 4th has queued up, but I guess OWW seemingly bypassing assigning Roles and/or queue settings does make it faster and thus more likely to matchmake.

    I think I've only gotten that alert one time across all my guys

    It's not just pure random chance that's doing this. I ran grouped with 4 people the other day and was queue fishing to get a particular run (not 1 run...just any run that had something someone knew they needed for a feat). Out of about 20 pops, only 1 was TOWW. If anything I'd say 'Saving Justice' came up way more than anything else (got it like 3 or 4 times of the 20). Ended up taking a BIA run in the end as one guy needed the random iconic.

    So A) it's either not happening to everyone (sorry Ryll) or B) a lot of people are queuing it and Omni completes it or C) when it's 4 solo omni queuer's there's something about that run that pulls more hits...like the lack of need for roles maybe...but I thought that was only due to the person/group lead changing that setting.
