    Well it seems they are patching the fixes but all servers are up in eq2 but 3. Why just these 3 are broken is beyond me. It's now two and a half hours and still no update. Hopefully we will here soon when and if we can log in today.

    Eu players are used to not being a priority, it's nothing new to us. Just don't take the servers down during prime time. Please.

    Don't do it at noon PDT. Do it in the middle of the night (our night)

    Noooooooooo :(
    It is raid time on EU servers :(

    Please start at 2pm PDT so we can raid in peace? :)

    Good luck finding a Server dev in the office around that time, you all are about 9 hours ahead of PDT, so noon their time should actually already be about 9PM your guys' time 0.o

    Edit: At least 9 hours ahead, starting from England and moving to the Right :p My bad.

    I Don't want to bring this up but if you read the notes it says.

    All US EverQuest II Live Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 7:00 AM PDT.
    Estimated downtime is 1 hour
    All EU EverQuest II Live Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, October, 2014 at 7:00 AM PDT. (3:00 PM London Time)
    Estimated downtime is 2 hours
    so if you read them carefully they could take there time and patch the EU next Tuesday lol

    The problem with this is then EU servers would never get server discos and always be 17 hours behind on seeing new stuff.
  9. Daenys Member

    Yes. But 9PM for us, it's raid time/prime time.

    8pm. We are 8 hours ahead starting from England and moving to the Left lol. If we went the other way, we would be in tomorrow, you would be two days behind and you don't even want to think about that.

    If they can't be bothered to stay late to fix the issues they caused, they should fix it 7am PDT tomorrow. IDC that I have to wait an extra day for my first GM.

    That's how it's always been until quite recently. That's why it was changed. But the change clearly hasn't worked so the best compromise for me is to do it while we are (or should be) asleep.

    I understand what you are saying Feldon and all joking aside, I am not berating the devs, they should just know when to delay rather than push ahead. They scheduled our update for the same time as the US, they didn;t make it so in these circumstances, drop te update to 7am PDT tomorrow. As long as they don't stop endeavouring to coordinate future updates, that's fine but on the occasions it goes wrong, for me, 16 hrs and a raid is better than 8 hours delay and no raid :)

    The EQ2 team are between a rock and a hard place on EU patch times. One time affects primetime for guilds, the other means EU servers would miss server discos and always be 17 hours behind on playing new content.

    Going through...withdrawal...real world creeping in...employees looking at me like I should do something...I think they want me to finish a heritage quest...can't let employees down...Antonia Bayle where are you girl? Where are you?

    To be completely fair, I was playing GW2 a few months back when ANet was under DDoS attack. Most of us found out through other players, not through ANet. I get the feeling that most companies won't admit there are huge problems until they absolutely have to.

    Plus they might not have an estimate of when the servers that are having problems might be up, so all they can say is "we're still down, please be patient" which is pretty much what they tell us at the beginning of any downtime cycle <G>.

    I did notice this earlier and I lolled. I took it as a typo not an intention :)

    Nothing ever changes with SOE... Just give them your money and their happy! /sighs

    I am confused it said 1 hour it is now 10am 7-10 is MORE than 1 hour.

    Since you used the term 'Employees', they probably want some goddamn supervision :p

    I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

    My server is down. Spell checking is the only game I have to play right now.
