Trouble playing with a friend
Me and a friend both want to get back into playing this game after giving it a go early last year, but we keep having trouble trying to get in the same instance. It's seemingly impossible to link up with one another because while he winds up in Earth Spacedock 5 I keep winding up in Earth Spacedock 13 or whatever. I'm certain there's a way to get in the same instance together because in Neverwinter, which Cryptic also made, you can just right click on your friend's name and sync up easy. I'm positive I'm just missing something obvious, can anybody help?

You can change what instance you're in. Click the title of the zone you're in, above your minimap.

Yes I know that, but the instance my friend is in is rarely, if ever, among the zones listed.

Try teaming up, that usually helps in getting you in the same instance. Since season 8, they cut the server max down to 50 for most maps, so try joining an low populated instance and have your friend join you then.

Maps like ESD are usually rather packed, so it can take a few tries sometimes.

If for some reason joining your friend's instance isn't a possibility (Just click on the zone name above the minimap to change your instance), then after you two form a party, just head to a different area, like say an area of sector space. The game tends to match up party members into the same instance of a zone when loading into it, so this is your best bet. When that is done and you guys want to head back to Earth Spacedock after a fine day of kicking butt, then it should load you guys in the same instance by default.

The fact that your friend's instance isn't listed is pretty unusual, most of the time the problem I have is that the one they're in is full, but still visible (Which of course is easily solved).
