Citadel of Flame accessibility...

Can any dev explain to me why, in 2020, we have a dungeon that is blocked behind an old-world meta that takes ages? A meta that resets in LESS than 30 mins?

Not only did we have to finish the meta before we started our P1-P2-P3 run, the event then reset and blocked the entrance after we came out of P2 - less than 30 mins after we went in for P1. Needless to say the group disbanded immediately.

It's no wonder that the game is losing players, when there is outrageous BS such as this still in the game. (when it's no longer relevant)

    You can reach the entrance gate to CoF and thus initiate the entrance dialogue even when it is "closed". Just saying.

    How exactly? I once tried doing that like I do with CoE but I can't get the pop up to appear and stay.

    Is from 2014. This still works. Otherwise experimenting with mounts works too. It's all about getting the entrance pop up.

    This also works on CoE but is significantly harder there.

    We have asked for over eight years now, that Arenanet moves that gate.

    Arenanet just doesn't want it to change.

    It’s the same with CoE only that that meta is significantly longer.

    The best change would be to make the dungeon's entrance area open world and move the waypoint there. Just like the Arah dungeon.

    The gate would still require the event to finish before it opens, but once you're inside you can run all paths.

    Go further, add a nice QoL change with a minor gold sink to help economy too:

    Add account service upgrade to eye of the north: make all dungeons available under a new list option a the portal.
