    24 hours of bonus exp, followed by 12 hours of negative exp. It's the reward we deserve...

    Up already? I feel cheated out of complaining.

    This is horrible. Just horrible.

  7. Metanis Bad Company

    Yes, it was a pleasant surprise this morning to find the servers were up and running!

    Underpromising and overdelivering is definitely the way to go when it comes to these long outages! Appreciate it being up so quickly!

    Much faster then expected great work. Always better to set the expectations properly and that was done in this case. Suggesting it could be a 36 hour downtime was the right call in my mind.

    I too was impressed with the early uptime..... Until I got to character select and everything took 12-29!! seconds to load characters. Then logging into the game can barely turn around and zoning is running 3-5 minutes now. But yes, nice job on bringing the world back online, somehow with more lag than it started with. Let me know when the patch to patch the patch will be.

    Edit- 24.78 seconds to turn around once, in a guild hall with no one in it.

    Not normal.

    LOL , all they did was add more time then it was really expected to take. anyone in IT knows this trick...we learned it from Scotty in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

    If it's that obvious, then why have they never done it before? :)

    Oh yeah, also Scotty in the ST:TNG episode with the Dyson sphere
  13. Cicelee Augur

    The happiness and positivity in this thread leads me to the conclusion that all monthly patch announcements should state that servers will be down for 36 hours.

    Darn it DBG, you ruined my well laid plans to buy some limes.
  15. Sobmre Augur

    because they are probably more of starwars fans "the new Disney starwars trilogy" that is
  16. Accipiter Old Timer


    Trick or not, it's smart.

    Good job, DBG on completing the maintenance within your window. :)

    Thanks, darkpaw team! Great work and it was a pleasant surprise being able to log in last night and take care of a few things.

    It's your computer. Undoubtedly. My EQ experience is the same as it always is.

    Another reference to this is in the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Day of Flux" where B'elanna Torres does the opposite: Captain Janeway asks Torres when something can be completed, Torres replies tomorrow, Janeway says she'll expect it today, then Torres says that no she really means tomorrow, and she does not exaggerate like some other Star Fleet engineers might. Words to that effect.

    There's room for both methods! Exaggerate when necessary to appease someone or make them on-time if they're always late, or be more precise and get people to trust your estimates even if they're not always quite perfect but close enough.

    Either way, it's geat that the downtime was completed earlier this time! Thank you.
