Overflow Servers Achilles’ heel
Were you in a party? I think they have it so that they attempt to put you in the same overflow as your party. I remember being in Southsun overflow. I logged out and logged back in and was automatically put in their overflow. Although I guess if you were in a party, you could have tried joining them back in the same overflow.
With all the server stress and/or the fact that you were booted, they might have caused that functionality to fault.
My party ended up on three different servers (2 overflow and 1 regular). You would get the “full server” message.
I was not in a party – but I wasn’t aware that I really needed to be – till after the drop and /map chat started talking about it… So it’s true that being in a group keeps you tagged to a server? This is good to know for future events…
