Logging in early this morning, I was able to play the game that I've enjoyed playing since it first came out. However, since I've been playing for that entire duration, I've come to notice a pattern when new content is released. When I saw this morning the in game announcement that the game was going to go down for an update, I jokingly thought, again, "Oh great, an update. I wonder what the Devs are going to break today in the name of trying to fix things." Little did I know how right that thought was. Today was one of the most frustrating days of Planetside. 1.) Upon trying to log in after the update went through, the game would let me select a character, load to 100%, show me a little bit of the map UI, and then crash. Or, load to 100% and black screen until a message popped up telling me the game crashed. 2.) Upon checking the forums, there appeared to be problems, but it didn't look like many people were having the same one I was having. 3.) I updated my graphics cards. No change in game behavior. 4.) I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. Taking an hour and a half. 5.) Uninstall did nothing. No fixes available, so I did other things and came back later. 6.) Saw in the forums that others were having some issues, but that there were lots of people who were testing the new MBT/Harrasser weapons, and checking out the new changes. I was sort of upset that I wasn't able to be a part of that group, as my game was entirely broken. 7.) I checked in every now and then to see if any progress was made on fixing the servers. Low and behold, the servers apparently went down and the result was signing in lead me to the character creation page, making me think my character may or may not have been deleted. 8.) I tried to sign in to the forums, and was getting error messages and having trouble posting a topic 9.) Half a day after your update, and I see that lots of people have been having the same problem I'd been having, there is no fix yet, and the game is still down. Ok DBC, It has been 12 hours after your patch, and the game is still broken. Your incompetence is clearly off the charts. When a customer KNOWS A PATCH IS GOING TO DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD, and is proven right, then you clearly have garnered no respect in your ability to handle this game. So many Devs have left, the CEO stepped down, and you have a game that gets utterly broken when you try to fix it. Please get your act together. If an update isn't ready, don't push it through anyways and think that you can fix up all the problems it causes later. That is not the right way to handle things, and it's incredibly rude to your player/customer base. You have done this so many times that many of us see it coming a mile away when you announce an update. This is frankly unacceptable. UNACCEPTABLE. and in case you didn't get the message that time, this behavior towards content release is UNACCEPTABLE. Please get your act together. I wouldn't be posting this if this sort of occurrence was a one off. I wouldn't be posting this if I trusted your ability to add content to the game with smooth transitions. This post may be a tad long, and I know people will say that it's nothing but one long rambling complaint... but I am truly frustrated. Truly frustrated, and finding myself with a lot of time on my hands that I wanted to put in to planetside, but will instead put in to the planetside forums. Please get your act together. Please show more respect to your player base.
