im not sure if im right here, but wa that a 15 hours maintenance just now?
you do realise that there are just as heavy free to play games out there, with no broccoli killing, who take 2-3 hours a week only, and actually do that NOT within the active hours of the vast majority of the world? or you think the world start and end with america?
thats ONE WHOLE DAY A WEEK thats your server is down! or am i missing someting here?
if you must have such a maintenance, do it every 2-3 monthes and only the minimum required in the weekly maintenance. and pick your maintenance hours carefully, PLEASE
i only been throw 2 maintenance times since i joined this game (the first one was 6 days bofor that one? i think) and i alrady put some money into this game. i must say your prolonged maintenances alone make me regret doing that
you have a great game here, its a shame to ruin it over low availability. 7x24=168 in 1 week, 15 hours maintenance is almost 10% downtime. as appose to 1% maybe 2% in other games. again, a vary NOT broccoli ones.. and i dont want to give names.

do review your maintenance procedure


EDIT:


before you rant and rave about things it would be a good idea to read through some things first. todays 15 hour downtime was listed as scheduled maintenance because they were moving their data centers. prior to that was an update where they added lots of new content and fixes to the game. most of the time maintenance is about once a month. i am fine with relaxing and not playing for a day if it means that they will keep up the good work


ok, that make a big diffrance, and i guess you right, i do needed to read more befor runt.
Hokiewa, however, to you i say you need to explore more. i did alot of exploring and can tell you of really neet FtP games that live up 100% to everything i wrote here..


ah another F2P person that cannot read... I bet you do the same thing on those zerger LFM's!!

Its a data center move, not a maintenance day.

Anyways, learn to read before you whine... also dont whine about something you dont pay for....

all of you epochofcrepuscule-like people who ganna get on my case for things i alrady apologized for - just dont, tnx

Yikes, I see an OP's head a'rollin. 2 Posts and already into the red. Nice try at sarcasm though; should probably leave that to the vets.

Anyone know where I can find the Maintenance procedures? I need to give Turbine a call to set this right.

not playing? o.O
only reason i dont play right now is because i cant log. the launcher keep tell me "service unavailable"
or did i missed your meaning?

and i dont think you understood my feeling here, im given a cool new game, leave my guild and friend to play it, then twice in a row i get a day-killing downtime. feels like showing you someting nice, and ask you "you want?" then take it away

Step away from the box...don't make eye contact. Not the end of the world. Only a game (a great one mind you).

Have you tried Hello Kitty? ;)

well welcome to the game....but I think you have no reason to gripe about something your not paying for. It's not like Turbine is taking your money unless the game is up.....never have I heard anyone gripe about not being able to spend real world money cause the game ain't up.....that's a first!!! It's up now.......so get to spending your money man......we like the updates your funding!!!!

4 hours maintenance this time.. a bit long but reasnble.

what about me not paying for game? you think i just gut myself a new hairstile and now im primume?
i get into this game about 1k points a month, and thats alot more then alot of VIP out there. or what, you think i dont disurve service becase i prefer one payment method over the other??
i dont know where this additude comes from, i know alot of companys this day give castumers a score and treat them better if that score is high.. but peaple, that NOT ok! snep out of it! you dont have to give a hand to someting as vile as discrimination, even if its done in a "politclly correct" way

What are you going on about?

The 4 hours of maintenance effects everyone. This is not downtime for F2P only. There is no discrimination in downtime.

qwebeast
03-22-2010, 02:39 PM
sry, u must have missunderstod me, the discrimination part is a replay to some of the posts here.
and for good order sake, that was 10k per month, not 1k, just now noticed i wrote it wrong :P

and i bet most ppl who read this just changed thir additude due to the change in numbers, lol. my point exectly
