    - External player = You, me and a few thousand others.
    - EU servers are locked because they are high pop right now, makes sense since all the major updates are done on EU prime time.
    - The servers will probably become unlocked at 4-6am CET , so they have all the big bugs resolved before the US servers hit their prime time and high pop.

    They will have to put them online to test if the patch of the patch works ;) So, most probably it wont be till 4-6am

    Are the servers also locked for PSG users?
    I am from EU, installed the game via Steam, and I am forced to use the US launchpad. Is there any way to transfer my account to PSG?

    So cool to experiment this at a period of high traffic. Why didn't they wait a few hours ?

    So let me get this right, they ask you to pay premium for priority logins, yet servers are locked, and me a premium player, can't get in, but those who are there can still stay there? Dont make sense...

    Long story short, an external player is anyone who doesn't work at or for SOE. Anyone who does is an 'internal player'.

    I think they've locked the servers so they can throw the CPU power saved at sorting out the player database - if I read into codeforges comments right, this update added some extra fields to the database and it needs to be rebuilt. Trying to do it as people were logging in was killing the servers (see all the posts from people stuck at 98%). This way, they can run the rebuild and get the servers running normally faster.

    Yeah, it's a pain to be locked out, but it's less frustrating that thinking the servers are up when they're effectively not. And if this gets us playing sooner, then it's the right course of action.

    yeah... several weeks ago they merged servers because of low population. Now they are excluding an entire continent due to overpopulation... I do not want do get a ban from the forums, so please try to imagine what kind thoughts I have for the ones responsible.

    'Locked' means the servers are empty, normally. Read 'locked' as 'offline', it's a truer picture of what's going on.
