    If it was on the PvP server, I can't see it as happening for "a long time" unless it's something that could happen on any of the servers. :-/

    If it's unique to the PvP server, when people ask why we can't have "good things" like PvP servers, that sort of thing might be why. X-P

    who realizes that PvPers are being tarred with a wide brush, but that could be used as an excuse... :-/

    I personally think it was a bad idea to make Kronos available on the Broker...on the one hand, it was a way to let folks who are real life cash poor but "wealthy" in-game to be able to be Members for a month; on the other hand, if they're F2P, how the heck did they get the kind of plat required to buy a Krono from the greed-heads cranking the price way up from the 1795 DBC (if 2000 DBC = $20.00 RL, stands to reason) it should've been in the first place? :-/

    who wonders if this sort of thing wasn't responsible for breaking the Broker via hyper-inflation on the rest of the servers... :-/

    Progress is definitely being made from what I can see.

    Y'all owe us a day of pro-rated play for this. This is crap. This is to fix an exploit??? That's a programmer screw up not a player screw up. Making US be the ones to pay for your mistakes is crap.

    Y'all owe us a day. Half a day at the least... If we added up all of the emergency downtime, it'd be WEEKS at this point.

    There was a time back in the Vanguard-split days where, it was rumored (by those who had reason to know) that there were grumpy goose programmers at SOE who were dissatisfied with like, everything, and deliberately put in a ton of spaghetti code to ostensibly hold the game(s; it was pretty much throughout SOE, but especially in their most popular games) hostage until their demands were met. Otherwise, they wouldn't straighten out the spaghetti code, and it could never be unraveled without their "help." Apparently, the Powers That Were basically went, "Fine. Please let the door hit you in the tuchim [probably the only term the auto-censor would let me get away with; plural of tuchis, though I'm not sure how accurate it is ;->] on the way out. You're fired. We'll take our chances."

    They might've de-tangled some of it, at least, but it might've also been a case of, you undo one tangled string, and 3 more get snarled. It could also have been that even the cyber-terrorists couldn't've de-tangled it, and it was a short-term bluff, or they were far more confident of their de-tangling abilities than they had any right to be. :-/

    EDIT: My bad; the plural of tuchis is tuchuses. ;->

    Oh, no, you don't want them doing that prorating stuff; I remember what happened the last time... X-P

    I'll settle for another day of the Oceansfull holiday. If it takes them through Friday, then two days. That's a lot less complicated.

    And if it weren't for Richard-head players poking at a bug deliberately and maliciously, a lot of these "screw ups" wouldn't occur. This was intentional and selfish.

    I would think they aren't any happier about this then you are.
    But it happened so make the best of it and be patient
    Personally I don't think I am owed anything. If I have to work late because of downtime no one says oh here
    is a reward sorry about that.

    Well, if it's the part of the signature, then I'm not sure how it got translated, and my [square brackets] everywhere probably didn't help; my apologies. :-/

    As for the rest, it was mostly me being silly. :D

    (Though I will be more than happy to decorate a house for someone willing to Gift me a new character slot from the Marketplace [on a US server or Thurgadin; I have more than enough on Public Test for now]... :D)

    The "This space for rent! ;)" line was from a line that I had back in the day, that got somehow removed for whatever mysterious reason, and I wanted to keep up the height of the signature, just because. ;->

    From what I was told people on pvp server are exploiting for plat to buying up dozens of Krono to sell on other servers any truth to this? Then why not lock pvp server until it is fixed.

    There are probably less demanding customers at your workplace. ;->
