    If a " OMG shut that server down before all is lost" is a planned down... What is needed for an unexpected server down?

    server info page still showing server (mine anyway) still up. which it very definitely isn't. So some poor souls are bashing away at the patcher thinking they have a connection issue because not even the info page is accurate :(

    People are fired for much less than this. It's a problem when you need to bring lawyers in to receive a service that you have already prepaid for a year in advance. It's time to start a petition and/or close all of our accounts. Just my opinion. Please feel free to ban my account for having an opinion I'll just do like all these Chinese farmers you can't seem to control and start a new account.

    I agree with you, but they will shield in that we have paid a suscription to several games, not only eq (even its the only reason). So as long as the other work little can be made

    you can still play for free

    There can always be unforeseen problems occurring after a huge patch. I have been playing EQ on and off for the past 20 years and it has always been like this. It will happen in any online game not just EQ. Just chill out, do some studying in between server down times or breathe into a bag so you dont hyperventilate :)
    Then again I have never found a forum or information why they took down the servers unannounced in the 20 years I have been playing. They have ALWAYS been very bad at this. A simple minute explanation for ex. bug found - "Warriors turned into elf healers" emergency patch or something would be nice.
    You figure they would have learned this after 20 years :)

    I stand corrected, after searching (Twitter) I did find


    All EQ Live Servers will be brought offline on now for an update. Downtime is expected to last approximately 3 hours.

    This is due to finding an issue shortly after unlock. We are actively working to address this and apologize for the inconvenience.

    I have cancelled my accounts. There is no excuse. I will play the remainder of my prepaid subscription if in fact there is a server available. If you think this is ALWAYS something that's excuseable you are wrong. People evolve as well as systems etc .., you can stay stuck in 1999 when it was acceptable. Here's your bag back and I put some nuts in it. ;-p

    the 3 hour "Planned" downtime yesterday wasnt planned. The servers crashed, like today, then they put "Planned" up, just like today
  18. StinkyVetWarrior New Member

    I think they are adding in a 75% xp bonus due to the quarantined state we are all in, and to make up for the unexpected outage.

    Shouldn't we run the patches and hot fixes on a standalone of the game first ? I know everything can't be foreseen. Specially with our hodgepodge of coding. I know the "test" server is THAT server. Not quite the same thing unfortunately. /sigh Jeff of Tunare BTW, Miss Tool backaway, slowly from the ledge....

    im telling you its planned in the secret darkpaw dev only forum ohh wait your right now its

    Status: 4/16/2020 9:08 PDT - We are currently investigating a potential issue with server: All Servers

    so mabye it just went from a 5 min plan to ohh wait it isnt planned mabye they found out they didnt post a down time but its kinda funny that they delayd t3 release 30 days i wonder if they are gonna do it again after peopel took another day of to enjoy a well planned release of T3 that they had 30 days to plan mabye its not a plan but just a toss of a coin
