    I'm messing around on Yamato and just a minute or two ago needed to recall from the hedge maze back to the house and had the problem of not going anywhere after casting recall a few times. Just as I was deciding maybe I would need to walk/run to somewhere and log out, recall worked and I got home. However, I noticed that it's exactly the same part of the hour as yesterday when the same problem happened on Yamato, except for being a different hour in the day. This has happened now two times within less than day that you can't recall on Yamato shortly after the "top of the hour." So this happened just now on Yamato at shortly after 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, i.e., at approximately 11:03 a.m. to 11:04 a.m.

    Is there a connection? I wonder. It used to be, when we still had guild/faction info posted on the website, that it was updated several hours after shard maintenance. Perhaps that program is still running, although we don't see the results anywhere and is causing too much stress on the servers at certain times of the day.

    Could we maybe start posting the times when we notice this oddity of "travel" spells not working at all or working, but with a noticeable delay between time of casting and time of "traveling"? Maybe there IS a pattern to when it's happening for each shard and it's connected to predictable but behind-the-scenes activities.

    Have you noticed it happening consistently at any specific time of day, or even any specific time during any random hour of the day, e.g., almost always a few minutes into the hour, 20 minutes after the hour, etc.?

    Its not about travel spells, its about changing subserver. Next time try to mark a rune on your position, move a tile and recall to the rune, or gate. It will work because its the same subserver.

    Yes, I completely understand this and I'm sorry that I forgot about the problem that happens at the same time where you can't use moongates. Stupid me.

    However, what I'm wondering about is whether or not there is a process that is running on the server at specific times that is causing these problems. Clearly, it doesn't happen on every server all day long.

    So, what I'm asking is whether or not people remember what time of the day or hour they noticed this happening. Maybe if we all put down our observations we might see a pattern.
