Wha~? Compared to any other MMO I've played (And that's a lot for an old man like me), the zones here are tiny with not a lot of downtime at all.
Is it more than PSO2? I dunno, I'd argue it's the same once you arrive in an area. I just see the run to the fast-travel node and the teleport the same as the transition from ship to dropship to world in base PSO2. And it's far quicker than that actually.
Once I'm in moving round in zone the travel time is about the same as low level PSO2 - Which is what we are in this, too - low level.
