I entered Chaos Hortail just now as 3x event started and the head didn't come out forever.
Now I lost a chance to get earrings during 3x event on a new character.

    The game basically crashes due to its graphic failure. Some parts during the Horntail exploration binks or disappear, then the dc happens. This issue came out again right after adventure release.

    Always change channel if you use the boss queue or is on the channel that the boss queue that.
    This bug occurs because too many people are trying to fight Horntail on the same channel. (The game at some point (after an unknown amount of people has entered) failed to properly prepare that particular instance of Horntail that is assigned to you)

    Yeah, this happened to me once in the past and I was told by guildies that it happens when too many people try to enter Horntail at the same time. It hasn't happened for a while now (knock on wood, pretty sure I'm jinxing myself by saying that), since I usually play at odd hours instead of peak hours now.

    Now this thing is really getting annoying and nexon doesn't do anything during maintenance about this issue. Wasn't really happening before v205 patch, and this glitch is literally happening everywhere. It happens the most during Horntail expedition, but I have seen it also happening in Hilla entrance and ardentmill.

    You say that this occurs because too many people are trying to fight Horntail, but I doubt it since I usually do the boss runs in the time when there are no people around. I also never use queue for any boss except magnus. I instead use the guide.

    I think you are confusing memory leak (graphical issue at 3GB of memory usage, almost no interference with game play except crashing a few minute later, last few patch has a highest occurrence of memory leak) with Horntail/Zakum giving people a completely bugged out map with no boss fight functionality (bug that been around here forever ever since they became instanced).
