Okay Hotshot, 

You've infiltrated the office and taken down some bad guys. But let's get to the real challenge. Which elevator do you use? Which is the 'correct' one? And why?

I almost always hit number three, more out of habit than any strategic reason.

Usually 2 or 3.  I tend to keep towards the back, plus I've found that some maps have debris that causes...issues with clipping/getting stuck on the 1/2 side.

I default to the right more often than not, and the far elevator will be the first to come into sight on that side, so ...

 

((Edit: also, the far elevator means my pets will be dragged further into the elevator room before I click, when playing an MM ... less likely to have problems, that way.))

It's interesting that 3 seems to be pulling ahead.

It's the one I use myself because back in the day we'd sometimes run into mobs right there as you come out of the room. So you go to the back to avoid aggroing them before you loaded fully into the new floor. I used to run with a regular group and we developed a protocol where half of us would go left and half would go right. I was always on the 'right' team. So 3 it was.

2 or 3.

Always pick the "back" elevator ... so as to arrive at a location farthest away from potential aggro upon exit.

This is why in tech labs with the "pneumatic tube" elevators I will always pick the center elevator, because the tube will block Line of Sight against anything beyond the elevator room, so you're safe(r) upon exit than using either of the other elevators.

melee toons always use 1 or 4, ranged use 3.  Had a horrible experience using 2 recently will never use it ever again.

Should've added the option: I don't care which/which ever my character is standing closest to once in the vicinity.  :P

#3 95% of the time.

 

I learned early on to always take the rear elevators to help prevent unexpected aggro from mobs who may have spawned in close proximity.

 

Why on the right-hand side? I dunno, might be a product of being right-handed or our driving system xD.

 

 

Interestingly enough when I'm driving down a parking lot, I prefer to park on the left hand side. Assuming I have a choice.

4 because the faster I change floors, the faster things die are arrested.

I RP Super Cutes1 on Everlasting2. Also I footnote sometimes3.

1 That is to say, characters that are both superheroes and, in my estimation, fairly cute.
2 The unofficial roleplaying server.

Approximately 2 to 5% of all of my posts, not counting those where all footnotes are the result of this signature.

Always 3.

Because agro and because compulsion.

 

Arachnos maps with their elevators always mess with my OCD too.

there was a mission where elevator 1 was out of order. go figure. I kept pressing and waiting, I thought it was due to rubberbanding, but tried 3 and worked right away.

2, and before reading all other answers (but after voting and seeing the post results), I was about to ask whether right-handed people were more likely to pick 3. 🙂 Interesting...

As likely an explanation as any IMHO.
