    Issue with Volge Swarm at Bathhouse

    Just trying to get some sense of how this battle has been going for others since the update. I have had frequent issues with this battle and the game basically locking up when it gets heated but today I had a situation that really was a bit dumbfounding. On two seperate fights several hours apart I have been engaged in this fight at the bathouse with the Volge and around stage 7 after getting the " game freeze" and doing the all to frequent restarting from Glyph server window I find that within the few scant seconds of loading the game ( like 10 seconds) the entire Volge battle is now missing and the mission with the Scrappers are now going in its place. there are no score totals from the Volge battle or anything - like I joined a different server or at an entirely different time. What caught my eye was other people standing there after rebooting looking for the Volge battle they were engaged in as well. I think the servers have gotten Alzhiemers or something - completely forgot the fight altogether. Soooo, yeah what is up with this?? Why...This??

    I had that problem a few days ago. Lost connection, logged back in and had to complete a mission again, ended up doing that mission 3 times before finishing it.

    I did receive some very nice loot drops from doing it though, lol.

    It happens in any game that uses multiple instances or server shards of a game to handle the amount of players on a server.

    It's supposed to do that players are divided into different servers to help lag.

    dumping people out of the battle must help lag alright. anyway if the fight is being split among several servers for a particular battle then wouldn't jumping to another "shard' still be the SAME battle?

    Think of the shards of being different dimensions, you are in the same place but different things are going on within the same place.

    Different shards have different events going on in them, that's why its good to have friends and clanmates to go to, while in a shard zone chat consists of only people in your shard, clan chat consists of anything your clan mates write in clan chat, regardless of which shard they're on, so in clan chat an event may be called out that isn't on your map and you use the go to clanmate option to get to them and the event
