I probably should have mentioned that I'm not a new player since I've played PSO since episode 3 in JP, so yeah, I've already tried those... and still didn't work. Not a single player came in even after waiting for like 20 minutes. Everyone else had this same issue, at least everyone in the MPA that I've talked to. I'm like 90% sure at this point that this has to be the system's fault, not the player. The "Search for Parties on Other Block" gives the result of what I'm experiencing, a bunch of 1 player all the way to the bottom of the list. I'm not really asking for troubleshooting since you can be sure I've tried most if not all of them. I'm just asking if anyone else has this problem too, or was this just some shit that happens on those rare occasions that for some reason happened 3 times almost consecutively?? Anyway, I'll try to do the UQ again when it pops up to see if it still persists, hopefully not though.
Sorry if I sound ungrateful, but thx for replying.
Edit: I just remembered that this started to happen after that one run on this quest, probably about a week ago, where the boss and everyone else just freezes. I thought I was disconnected since that's what usually happens when you do, but oddly enough the disconnect notification never pops out even after 10-ish minutes, and the ping never when RTO. I was playing with my friend at that time and this happened to him too, so not the internet's fault, probably.
