30 second timer on logout doesn't wait?

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a dumb question. I searched the entire forums for the answer, didn't find anything related at all.

 

I've just started playing the Homecoming server, after some friend told us these unofficial CoH hosts existed. It's great to be back, but there are a few things here and there that are different from what I remember from the original owners. Most of them are just little changes in the mechanics (e.g. enhancements appear to no longer be sold by contacts, but rather are now available even in dual-origin and, I presume, single-origin, from the trainers), but one of them just seems odd: when I logout of the game, even though the prompt says the client will exit in 30 seconds, it winds up exiting immediately. I.e. the timer starts at 0 instead of 30.

 

Is this intentional? Is it something I can adjust? It's not really that big of a deal, but I kind of liked that 30 second window that gave me a chance to interrupt and respond to a last-minute chat message or something, if someone else standing next to me wrote something just as I was logging out.

Some locations are "safe" locations where there's not going to be any combat (or even a chance of combat) so the logout happens immediately.

Huh. Interesting. Thanks!

 

Is this one of the things that have been changed in the new game client, or did I just somehow never realize (or have forgotten) that the original game was always like this?

This is amusing that no one here has fully put 2 and 2 together for you. If you are logging out in a Day Job location you will exit instantly. There is a small handful of other places that have a super short log out time like 5 seconds. But I also think the old standard 30 was reduced to 15 as well.

There's at least one exception:  The Crey building in Nerva.  I'm parked in the lobby to get the Day Job badge, and it still gives me a 10-second timer to exit.
