    There are sometimes full S3 trains but are rare. Best option is to get into a guild and asking them for help if you cannot solo them or using megas.

    Are you using Quick Battle (QB)? People will not see raids you created from the board. QB raids should fill within 5 minutes during peak times. Using a mega helps.

    Tres Things:
    - You're used to the obnoxious and outdated UI that this game desperately needs a revamp on.
    - If you missed a sentence while you're in the middle of playing ...it pops up in the chat/All tab folks ignore most of the time. Font for ants!
    - If you missed that then it gets shoved in that small/easily dismissable box on the right side.

    Also, users don't read and they're even less likely to complete tutorials/onboarding for an app/game (roughly 80%).
    So nah, it ain't really a surprise. Have some empathy for the lazy 80% Chonk.


    Sum solutions:
    Game forces you to go to the board to make battles for the first few levels. Force us to use QB maybe for the first "recommended" story boss like or Regina or something?

    It's really hard to ignore those slow ass "Blah blah is on sale don't forget to buy..." messages that are animated on-screen. Maybe use that for future recommended QB story-battles and not just random promotional messages.

    Another solution:
    There's a quest at like level 4 or 5 that teaches you about quick battles. They could move that quest into the start of S3's line and make it required. Would combine well with your idea of forcing QB on the first story raids.

    Like make it so when they try to depart for Regina through any means, it'll say:

    "Failed to create battle. You do not meet prerequisites. Complete Quick Battle subset story first."

    They'll then have to visit the cat who will then explain QB & give them a quest to create and complete a raid QB three times. These three times could be on Corrupted Queen, Twists in Time, and Light and Shadows. This should educate them & get them used to it since the act of creating/completing QB's is a quest objective.

    Or they could enable creating QB from battle board and make it default (if the host has the required stats). And players that don't want QB could just uncheck QB option.
