"ZONE PROGRESSION / POPULATION

Current Raid Zones

Due to an exploit, raid zones now have a hard 2.8 day [ 2 days 20 hours] lockout timer. Timers will expire naturally and are no longer able to be reset. This will include all Velious and future Raid zones.

Plane of War is now a hard 4.8 day [4 days 20 hours] lockout timer."

Exploit or not, this is an absolutely terrible idea. Because of the lack of content to clear is this expansion, this will hurt middle and lower tier raiding guilds because many of them will set a zone such as Underdepths, then run it, reset it and run it again in one day. With the change, you'll only have that zone for 3 days, so if a zone was being set on Wednesday to be finished on Sunday, it wouldn't be available. Also, with higher tier guilds and Plane of War, many guilds in Plane of War will take more than 5 days to clear as much as they can, so this will be hurting them too. Fix the exploit, don't use this heavy-handed "fix" that is only going to negatively effect people.
