Last night, my guild proceeded through Underworld, then skipped to halls for 2 fame. Wait, it gets better.
After our win, we got a No Opposing Party. I've had this happen in halls many times before, though it is uncommon. No big deal, we just waited 12 minutes until the next match...and then
We got a second No Opposing Party.
And a third
And a fourth
And a fifth
Here is an unedited (cropped for size, nothing else) screenshot of my /age before the end of the last wait timer. You'll notice this is not PVE tombs because
1: There is a Ghostly Hero
2: There is a Victory Chest
3: There is a timer saying "Time until next mission starts" instead of "time until returned to outpost"
4: There is a score on the screen.
5: Nobody can get a paragon to level 20 and beat tombs in 2 hours 18 minutes, as my /age shows.
6: Nobody plays PVE tombs (kinda like halls I guess)
We did manage to get opponents after the 5th NoP, but lost because we lost one monk and we fought dual spiritway, which for some reason still exists.
I have permission from everyone whose name appears in the screen to be posted here.
In case you don't know math or are too lazy to figure it out, we were there 12 minutes for the actual battle, every 12 minutes after that = a single NoP. Computers round down when counting time, so 1h 12m = 72 minutes -12 for the battle = 60 minutes of no groups. 60/12 = 5 nops.
Good game anet, now do you believe people hate halls?
