    If you always do APQ you would know that if a player disconnected before stage 2 is completed, the run will be ruined. Unlike other PQs, APQ only can be done once every 6 hours, and it really feels bad for a run to be ruined by a dc.

    For stage 2, you need exactly 6 players to complete it. 5 to hang on the ropes and the leader to click on NPC Amos. The 5 hanging are not able to click on Amos because it out of sight, thus the leader is not able to double up when a member disconnected.

    While for stage 3, even with 1 member dc-ed. The leader is still able to double up to stand on a platform while clicking on the NPC.

    Currently whenever a disconnect happens, the party will try to @gm for help to hang the rope as the 5th person. This no doubt placed additional workload on the GM along on top of whatever stuff they are already doing. And most of the time they are not attending to such request due to the other more prioritised requests.

    So why not we solve this problem forever and give everyone a better APQ experience :D

    Easy Solution
    Overlay a clickable npc (same as Amos) onto the Star/Moon/Sun of the hanging rope, so the leader can double up as a hanger whenever a dc occurs.

    Reminds me of what official servers did for LPQ stage 8.-> enabled an npc to give you an etc. "puppy" item that you dropped which will act as someone on the platform.

    Interesting this is even early since it seems it still has the pre-bb timer. However, with the ropes hanging in the sky, dropping an item would obviously not work.

    unless.. there was a custom invisible platform small enough to support an item or player? or maybe the platform is made drop-downable so you can either drop an item while on the rope, or drop an item then drop down to be on the rope.

    I'm not OP but i would imagine it to be like that invisible platform you can find in the top rightmost street lamp in the free market. the ones only mages can tele onto (or with a well-timed flash jump).

    You can click on the sun/moon/stars on top of the rope and it will trigger the amos npc script so the leader is able to join the ropes now
