    Greetings,

    Thank you for the feedback in regards to instanced zones in the Stormblood areas.

    We understand that these field instances can make it difficult to group up when running open world content or gathering as a party, and we apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused.

    Due to the specifics of the programming, many of these requested features such as being able to choose which instance to teleport to or having the system prioritize whatever instance your party members are currently in would be very difficult to implement.

    While we are aware that this is not ideal, we ask for your patience and understanding as these field instances are tentative measures intended for congestion relief and load reduction as we try to make the game as smooth as possible for all players.

    it isn't something they've put aside. You now what is the role of instances? Right, splitting player between different maps for the server to not crash. You know what happen when people can choose their instance when teleporting? One hint: Ixion. if you can choose your instance when teleporting, then just delete instances, it's the same.

    How difficult would it be to pop up that same instance selection menu that pops up when leaving one area as an extra dialogue when teleporting?

    More difficult than you realize if the foundation of the game's programming was never coded to have such a feature. It's not just about adding an instance pop up, it's about how the game treats information when teleporting opposed to zoning. There must be a significant difference and that difference would require reprogramming a vast amount of code to make the change. The problem with rewriting a bunch of code is problems caused by doing so. Changing one thing could break ten other things. It'd be a hell of a lot of work when instances are a temporary measure.

    ... Why would y'all program it in such a way that we can't do any of these things? It doesn't take a lot of foresight to think about how certain features would be fairly critical to the QoL of instanced zones.

    Couldn't an instance variable be added for a party that would keep the group going to the same instance number unless the party leader changed it manually by going between zones for the pop-up? Something was coded to sort people into instances, surely it could check for such a variable.

    Get Yoshi and his team to form a party and teleport around so they experience first-hand how unacceptable and amateurish this "limitation" is. And please, enough with the apologizing. Get in there and fix it. Jfc.

    They should really start working on that now then since this same exact issue will pop up again 2 years from now with the expansion.

    This...right...here. This is the only change needed.

    But the way Ixion is implemented could be changed so that the instance measures wouldn't be unnessecary.
