There has been other suggestions to improve the GRB. To be fair, there is one suggestion, which is easier to implement then yours ; add a portal to GRB in guild houses.
This way, you have reduced latency problems, but also avoid additional problems because the portal is already there. They have to create a new instance and place that portal in guild house. That's all
Eh, some would still QQ and cause drama about it being given to Guild houses only. I mean 4 servers and only 30 max ranked guilds. Some guilds come to GRB with only a handful of people, some have a full raid or barely half full. Yet, still there is so many in the GMO before the merge, other then the ranked guilds.
So many people in GMO who have never ranked, or were 1 hit wonders and still try.
Sure taking away the 1-30 ranked guilds would have caused less lag or no lag if it was in lailah before the merge, but now we are merged and even beeing outside the GMO , is enough to cause DC or running into walls.
If they did add a GK in Guild House, then why can't they add one in apulune too?
Personally I always say my new PC never lags, but I'm selfish if I was to expect everyone else to put up with the lag that I don't get anymore. This computer is made for skyrim with HD mods and Guild Wars 2.
And.. yet it has only just managed to overcome the lag I used to get from shaiya.
Atleast with the button option, it is a simple 3 step plan.
1. Click and confirm your GRB attendence.
2. Join a raid or party containing only guild members before GRB is due to occur.
3. Be ported into GRB when the time comes.
