I'm sorry but there is very little difference in 12h or 4h it won't fix anything. Also the reasons for having timer make me cringe 😂

Of all the options, A) is the best.

That being said, a 1 hour timer is more than enough to prevent crossrealming of any kind of importance.

As it stands, there's enough cross realm transfer of information happening in real time through services like Twitch, the community discord, and other channels.

Realm pride should be second fiddle compared to health and happiness of the server. Logging in to level something Albion while you kill some time waiting for your friends from Midgar to log in should be an option.

Compared to 12 , 4hrs is great. Thanks Phoenix team. Give people to do RL stuff, sleep, groceries, etc. BTW Uth said in game vote. This is just my opinion as people complaining already.

12 hours and 4 hours are the exact same thing.

Doesn't allow to balance realm mid-evening or fill more groups with people stuck on their timer.

Easy fixes :

To balance the number of groups already out : Allow people that have been on /gvg list for 30 minutes to instantly switch realm via a custom command by the group leader (/gvg switch group <realm>.

To allow for groups to fill : Create new command /gvg switch invite <account name>, that allows a group leader to send an invite to a player logged on another realm. On acceptation by the player, he is logged off and his timer resets on the realm on which he was invited.

Probably voting 4 since it's the shortest option. All about preventing fairweather realm hopping, but 4 hours is more than enough to accomplish that.

B) 6

this is just under a full days work and is only a 1/4 of a day lock that isn't bad at all. You can find 6 hours worth of stuff to do around the house before coming back.

Could you please add a "less than that" option just for the sake of it? Even if you won't go forward with it for whatever reasons.

While a shorter realm timer would make the opposite possible as well, people switching over to the less populated realm, the majority of people will not, instead they are more likely to switch to the dominating realm of the evening.

On what data are you basing your argument? Most people don't like to do PVE vs keeps guards, I'd say the complete opposite would happen, especially with the bonus xp/rp for underpopulated realm.

4hr or 6hr it seems reasonable, and a good option to play different realm .
Don't need to have less than 3hr on server like this
