Fix avatar spawn rates already! 85-90% of them are spawning within a 6 hour window, something like 3am-9am EST. How is it possible for an EST based guild to compete with a european or asian guild that is raiding on a US server? It's not like these encounters are hard by any means, so basically whoever can form up first gets the kill. Spawn times are supposed to random on a 24-72 hour cycle yet nearly all of them spawn in the previously stated timeframe, how is that random?

You are exaggerating.  Avatars do not have 95% of spawns between 3am and 9am eastern.  Our last Avatar spawned at 4:45pm Eastern, previous one at 4pm eastern.  Prior to that 10:30pm and 9pm Eastern.<div></div><div>If anything, looks fine to me.  You are aware of what random is right?  It doesn't mean everything will be equally distributed to 1 portion of time, but instead it could be distributed to any portion of the time with no care.</div>

The last 10 of 12 avatar spawns have been during the timeframe I mentioned earlier. So yea, it was a bit of an exxageration, to be absolutley correct it's 83% of the last 30 days.

Did you know that 83% of all statistics in the last 30 days have been completely fabricated?
