# 1 Tholian Red Alert madness
04-09-2013, 08:51 PM
Spending 30 minutes trying to get in to the Tholian Red Alerts and switching instances is crazy. It's pure luck getting in to one. I clicked the Red Alert button half a second after it popped up and it was already full and kicked me out.

You REALLY have to do something about this so we can actually play it. Have it spawn more instances or have different ones pop up in more then one sector instance.

It is getting really annoying.

Agreed. I've only been able to do it a handful of times, but more often than not I end up warping into an empty zone and then forced back out. It's been like this for as long as I can remember.

What I recommend they do is convert it over to a PVE queue mission.

I find it quite hilarious that after all this time, it's still not fixed.

Yes, the Tholian Red Alert system is broken and the devs don't care enough to fix it. Unfortunately this is well-known, and it is sad how unprofessional such glaringly broken features are allowed to persist without an attempt at a fix.

They need to stop the alert when the instance is more than half way done unless a new one will spawn. I cant count the number of times I've entered an instance only see that it is finished or lost. Such a waste of time.

I think we can all agree that something needs to be done. Be it making it a mission that we can queue for in the PVE queue for or fix it so that it spawn more instance when more then 5 enter it.

I've never played a Tholian Red Alert.
