    This should be GU 132, no? :oops: I thought we already had GU131 here.
    Will the bonus stabilizer week start after servers are up?

    CET 14:30 (2:30 pm) or 15:00 if it'll be delayed again with 30min as usual nowdays. Guys, when you get home from work in EU, just forget about playing on reset day and we'll meet on Friday. :(

    I remain optimistic. They said up to 10 hours last time and it ended up being less than 6.

    Indeed. But I still don't get why these maintances are supposed to be on reset day and in the most populated period in EU.

    Devs don't care about EU server/players. It's on life support with almost no players, and look how often we get lag spikes, disconnects, etc.

    I don't get why you think an American company should cater to your time zone?
  10. Kickback New Player

    If it's on life support with almost no players then it makes sense that they wouldn't cater to doing maintenance when it best suits you. But in reality, they just do it because that's when people go to work in that time zone in that part of America.

    Mepps stated the other day that they'd identified the recent lag and disconnects on the EU server as being caused by DDoS attacks. Apparently it has been addressed, and I haven't had any lag or disconnects in the last few days so fingers crossed.

    Game companies are just frustrating and I just don't understand them.
    Why don't they just use servers similar to test server and just call it live servers #2?
    They could update one while the other remains live and just switch them to update the clients like flipping a light switch.
    It wouldn't take ten hours it'd take ten minutes.

    But they won't.

    When you start a question with "Why don't they just..." the answer is almost always money. It probably costs too much to run properly. That said, I have no idea. It would be a fine thing to have multiple versions of the server running so there's never any downtime.

    I mislabeled the previous GU #. Will go through and fix at some point.

    That's not much time.. Server downtime is pretty normal in MMOs.
