Cause I am completely confused about the way it's handled. It seems that my little rag tagged group of ark hunters are always getting out of phase from one another and I don't understand how to keep it from happening.

I am aware that time trials, rampages, and hotshot events take you into a single player scenario.

I usually play in a group of just 2 or 3 guys, and I have found that we sometimes get out of phase if one of us runs off too far from the others. I'm not sure why that happens exactly, I am starting to think it might have to do with going from one region to another, but that's just a wild guess. As long as we stay relatively close (just outside of the minimap range seems to work fine) we never have the issues.

Sounds like you are having the same issues. It's not so bad that's it's happening? It's more a minor inconvenience, but I really want to know WHY it's happening.

It may be built into the scenarios. It would encourage people to rez their friends instead of them self rezzing to wherever during a fight. Makes you stay close and work together. Of course the developers would have to confirm this. I'm only guessing.

why not just auto phase you in?

In my experience episode missions, few story missions, and end of act story missions are done solo... At least in my experience. If I join my friends phase and it doesn't do a loading screen I just teleport to him and most the time it puts me in the same phase he is in.

It's a great feature just not well explained...

I use the "Go to Friend" feature quite frequently in the game. Makes it easy to join up and it puts you in the same phase as well.

what is auto phasing? Is that in settings?
