    Hi folks,

    Filling in for Dreamweaver today while he takes some much-deserved R&R, your regularly scheduled host will be back later this week.

    All EverQuest II Servers will be brought offline on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at 7:00 AM PDT (14:00 UTC). Due to an additional database maintenance, downtime is expected to last up to 4 hours.

    Update Notes can be found over in the Game Update Notes Forum.

    Four hours! Holy crap! So much for wanting to play, freshly returned to EQ2, on my day off. You suck. Canceling monthly earlier than I figured.

    Not sure if you are serious or not. There has ALWAYS been maintenance on Tuesdays, sorry you didn't remember that. >.< You should be nicer.

    Yeah, Eldarshar... I know it's tough when you have plans and something like this comes up, but they didn't do this to you on purpose. They didn't know it was your day off. As Punmietz said, there's always been maintenance on Tuesdays. It does have to be done sometime.

    This might be a good time to peruse the forums, look for answers to any questions you might have about how the game has changed, and that kind of thing.

    And Smels? That's not really very helpful, either. Hmm. Maybe we all need a chill pill.

    And welcome to jgolenbo - thanks for giving Dreamweaver a break!

    And - YAAAAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!! NO MORE BATTALION BUFF!!!!!! WOO HOOOO!!!!!

    :D

    er... that is, no more fireworks surrounding the battalion buff. I have no issues with the buff itself. :rolleyes:

    Welcome to the bear pit, jgolenbo! It's brave of you to face the horde!
    Good to hear that there's some database TLC being delivered (an oft overlooked aspect, so very positive hearing it's being taken seriously; sign of a a team of professionals who know what they're up to).
    Thanks for the comms that this'll be a longer outage than normal. Hope all goes smoothly, and the sysops get their "post maintenance treats" (donuts, chocolates, random nice stuff). :)
    As the old quote goes, Operations is 99% boredom, 1% sheer screaming terror. Hopefully this cycle fits in the "boring" category.

    I can't believe they did this to you! This has to be personal. What do you think you did that made them so upset to ruin your day off?

    Sweet Jesus. Its 4 hours. I'm not sure if thats enough time for you to gain some perspective but give it a try at least.
  16. Xenogenetic420 New Member

    All I know is I want to get back to building random **** out of Tinkerfest materials. :p Also, when its back up, please take the time to go look at Builders Paradise on Massive Homes :) And anyone who can make the materials, I need thousands of Tinkered Carbonite and Gold Dividers :D Will work out a deal with you if you want too make a stack, even if it's only 20 :) All help is appreciated while I build more tanks, submarines, helicopters, and other neat mechanical devices!!

    You gotta tell us which server, LOL. We're already 30 minutes past when we should be back up, so I imagine a lot of us are hovering over our keyboards...
