View Full Version : Connection message when servers are down

If servers are down for maintenance or whatever, this should be the message received when a logon attempt is made. At the moment players get whatever spurious message from the server. Players then do not know if the problem is with DDO or the internet or their own system.

I suggest that if the servers are down, that the account logon module returnes a meaningful message to the player, e.g.:

- This server is down for maintenance until 10:00am 01/01/2010 (-5 GMT) and will be up in 3 hours 22 minutes.
- This server is down. We are looking into it and will have it up as soon as possible.

This saves the player from wondering where the issue is and then searching forums or websites to try and find out what is happening.

The more people that reply to this thread saying that they agree, the more notice DDO will take of it.
