Better Block Organization?

@Kos said in Better Block Organization?:

Designated blocks on JP DO work though, when the content specific to them is actually relevant and worth running. Whenever there was a ult quest boost, the ultimate quests block would be full from people wanting to run ult quests, for example. Even just designating by difficulty, something incredibly basic, would go a long way to help.

Still hurts the current population who made block X their home, and if Block 1,2,3,7,8,10,17, 34 or 50 of Ship 1 was designated for 'anything' useful, it'd never be able to get people for that content since those are where stragglers usually end up and communicate filling the block with no purpose other than to socialize in mind or get people for random groups XD.

definitely agree with adding this in

I dunno what ship the rest of you people are on but it'd go a long way in helping out mine, even if it's as basic as just a designation because at least it's SOMETHING, a foundation or a stepping stone. Even multi-block searching is a crapshoot half the time on my ship and that's not even mentioning if I wanted to play stuff in the casino, there was barely anybody in B1 or B34 even with the game boosts yesterday.

I can relate to that as my alliance's homeblock was 34 before B51-80 were gutted. Now it's full to the extent that half of our members can't even get in anymore because they're not prem, so we just decided to move two blocks down and set that up as our new point. Hell, my friend's alliance who I hang out with had their home in B77 but that got nuked. But there's no harm in adapting imo, especially if they decide to mimic JP and cut our main (PC/Xbox) blocks down to 39 in the future as well or god forbid even lower at this rate.

I do agree that nothing will likely change in B1, B2, B34, etc but I wouldn't really mind, in fact I see that as a good thing if people are still congregating there in spite of the recommended designation. But it wouldn't hurt to have the more currently-desolate blocks in the 20s or 40s to have designations for casino and stuff.

@Ephemiel thanks for your thoughts. I dont think it will separate the playerbase bc people can still go into whatever block they want to do. I just thought labeling would just make it better than just having all of the blocks say the same thing. In JP, getting into expert block wasn't even difficult, all you had to do was beat the Heaven and Earth Extreme quest. Again, clearing that gives you access to a block that bots wont be able to get into. Just my thoughts tho. Questing with people within expert block would just mean they have decent gear for good runs instead of doing slow runs with people with a wide range of gear. I liked how it worked in JP bc it didnt feel as restrictive as the way I'm making it sound I suppose.

I'd much rather have a designated block that you're able to log into if it's not full each time you sign into the game.

So you can log into your alliance block, right? that sounds like a good idea too.

I dont think that it hurts ppl who make certain blocks there home. I only want the blocks to have better names. People can still go wherever they want but they might have a better chance in finding a party for a certain difficulty if blocks were renamed. I guess I should have said it like that LOL. Youre not gonna be jailed into certain blocks because of your level, but you can go to blocks where ppl in your level range would hangout or do quests.

Absolutely agreed. I didn't even know this was a thing, having never played on JP before—until a friend told me very recently and shared an example screenshot of exactly how they were laid out. It'd obviously help a ton with populating more of the ad-hoc content with likeminded people, such as the Casino games (ESPECIALLY Blacknyack or Mesetan Shooter), recruiting additional members for trigger parties, or Rideroid quests without having to sit at the Quest Counder tediously refreshing the party search menu or start one fr

This is the aforementioned screenshot my buddy showed me. For the record, he told me that most of these are quite simply designations, they're just normal blocks with a recommendation catering to a specific piece of content in its name—as the poster above me stated as well, with the exception of Expert, which was also very clearly pointed out in the OP.

Thanks for sharing this! I think I didn't describe it well enough and people are misunderstanding what I'm saying LOL
