Guild Wars 2 early access players encountered a slew of connections issues over the weekend, including a grouping bug. Developer ArenaNet has promised that a patch is being worked on as you read this. Read the full statement below.
The ArenaNet statement explained, “We currently have a couple serious bugs with one of our important back end systems. This error is causing the loss of trading post, players to sometimes be separated and unable to travel to each other when switching maps and entering overflow servers, and numerous guild errors. We are very sorry for this inconvenience and are currently working around the clock to try and remedy this error."
"When this bug is fixed overflow servers will keep parties together and players will be able to travel to the same overflow server as any friend or guild member who is in an overflow."
