Hello Albion Community,
Here is a more detailed breakdown of how the Skipping of Overcrowded clusters works. Just to make sure all guilds know all the details before the start of Season 11.
When a cluster is overcrowded the Smart Cluster Queue activates in it. If a player tries to enter the overcrowded cluster he gets a pop menu, where he get the following options:
[*]Queue for the cluster (See Manual Cluster Queueing
[*]Or Skip the overcrowded cluster and jump to a connected cluster.
Skip Overcrowded Cluster Basics
[*]When clicking on Skip Cluster, you get a selection of all connected clusters
[*]After you selected one of the clusters you will be teleported to that connecting entrance of that cluster
- Upon arrival you receive the regular shield bubble, like if you had moved to another cluster via an exit
- After arrival You won't be able to skip the overcrowded cluster again for 30s
[*]You can either Queue for a cluster or skip it. You can't do both at the same time. You can however Skip a cluster and directly Queue from the new entrance again
Skipping Multiple Clusters
[*]If the selected cluster is also overcrowded, you get a selection of all the connected clusters for that overcrowded cluster too
- This way you can skip two or more connected overcrowded clusters
- All the Basics from above also apply when skipping multiple clusters
