No event? I thought we were supposed to have 3 (or 4 with Daeva Dash) events. Make one a 2 week event! 2 weeks with no event is not that fun.

"My buddy didn't get into this Evergale.. kick kick kick kick.. oh! There he is."

"I don't like that guy.. kick."

"That guy has no gear.. kick."

"A level 69? Hell no. Kick."

"This alliance is only 75s with gear. I don't know you, you get kicked. Kick kick kick."

You asked for it. You got it. Let the tears begin.

Per usual and similar to the Coalition guidelines, abusing the kick functionality outside of its intended use will not be tolerated.

And why does it have to be like that?? ive seen more active players with no gear, lvl -73, than top ranked and full geared players 

My point is that the "leader" is going to kick because they want to win. They will want 75s. They will want gear. That's what wins. 

@Hime says that the Coalition rules will apply. I don't think the leaders are going to care. Why? Because people are terrible.

Having a kick function is so horribly open to abuse that it will be worse than the afk problem.

Thanks for speaking to us Hime, we really appreciate it and hope you are much more active on the forums. However this issue will come with problems because there won't be an algorithm to determine who will be a suitable leader.

Leader could be afk and not use the function, leader could be a troll or a bad and kick people. AFK isn't the main problem though, its premades which are turning matches into total blow outs.

They need longer queue time so that leagues with premades with face against leagues  with premades. Its just so unfair when you have a premade alliance just demolish and have full map control in two minutes, afk barely has anything to do with that.

You gotta make it where you can only premade a maximum of two times per day, that way Evergale Canyon will be less sweaty and more of a casual environment where all archdaevas can contribute regardless of level and gear. We have other instances where premades have made those instances highly competitive like Kamar, Iron Wall Warfront and Idgel Dome which are not particularly welcome to anyone less than level 73.

Please first keep Evergale Canyon as fair and evenly matched as possible, you already did good by bring the instance back from the dead with patch 5.8 but there are improvements. As for the AFK situation, I would introduce a 2nd tier losing team award at 2500 mark which awards 1 artifact core fragment to help encourage participation and some sort of AFK check.

I want to see premades vs premades, and quick entries vs quick entries.

I for one would like to see the updated list. :)

Its most likely the same rewards we had in the past. The Shadow Pact weapons, +11 manastones and the mount.

To make matters worse there are Elyos hacker premades from Katalam side that run Evergale and ruin the instance, and the quick queue Elyos mentality has changes so much that they believe unless the have Mochigirl or hacker premades leading them they will give up and thusly refuse to participate and AFK, which is why you see a lot of Asmo quick entries beating Elyos quick entries quite a lot. When they do have such premades you suddenly see a huge swing in partipation rates for Elyos.

As for Asmos, the AFKers somehow just know if they are gonna vs premade before the gate opens which is quite the phenomenon. Clearly this shows premades are a problem to why theres AFK.

They can make it 3 premades, but points is we can't have people who premade always win and have dominant 90% win rates it ideal if they quick entry more often.

Yeah, because the all asmodians are saints, they dont hack and they dont log in to their Elyo alt and queue to EC. and because when they win is because they are better, and if they loose is because elyos are hackers, and dont forget the daily dc is because @Hime, @Cyan @Gideon are helping the evil elyos.
