UPDATE: The DDO game worlds have reopened! Thank you for your patience, and we will see you in the game.

The DDO Game Servers will be offline for maintenance on Wednesday, February 11th from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT). Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

We're doing some maintenance work on one of our fiber channels, so no game changes are being made.

I never know if I should be happy or sad that there are no game updates when the servers are down anyways. Hopefully this will help with the lag monster. :)

They've moved away from Cogent networks. That's helped tremendously from what I've see so far.

yeh I am definitely the lucky one today: it went down half an hour before I have to go to work, and should be back up when i am on my dinner break :) perfect timing, for me, at least :)

too get xp from snow you need to chop some trees, too

shovel snow
fill snow into snow melter
chop wood
light fire
melt snow to water
chop more wood
make fire hotter
make water boil
use steam to power xp grinder
/rinse repeat

if you have a tier4 twist free can just position the xp grinder mid air above you and spam energy burst fire...

mhhh I dont have any numbers on how much steam power is needed to generate 1 xp, and I havent done the math yet on the snow shoveling and wood chopping but I think the bottom line is

nvm, keep grinding quests instead

For those that don't know, the Boston area has set a record for snowfall in 30 days, 61.5 inches or 5 feet and 1 1/2" of snow in the last 30 days.

For you metric people, if my conversion is any good, that is 156.21 centimeters, or 1 meter and 1/2 meter of snow.

Personally, I don't mind the wait. I just headed over to the Hall of Fame to check out a few of my favorite threads. The band albums, yet again, managed to make me chuckle.

Yes, some ppl forget that DDO is only a game, and that there is no reason to make a huge fuss over it when the maintenance is quite obviously a necessity. But my input certainly won't stop them from whining and demanding compensation. Granted, it is still my favorite game of all times, but just a game nonetheless.

Btw... I believe I pugged with you a few times within this past week.

I feel the Turbine team deserves appreciation. DDO wouldn't be here without them and their occasional down times for server maintenance, which is present in every online game. If they are doing their best on the matter is only to be determined in the office, but I trust that they are doing fantastic.

I'm thinking that when the plugged the new fiberoptic cable in and ran their diagnostics to make sure everything was ok, several errors popped up which they are now running around frantically to locate and fix. So please stop bugging Cordovan for an update. Let him and the other techs do their job which to find and fix the problem.

I'm sure there is a good explanation for the extension, whatever it is. What reason would they have to not have the servers up as soon as they can get them? They are not keeping them down just to frustrate us.

since I missed it at start ( and since I spent my day fighting something called BGP i didn't have time to check the forums until now )

- Fiber channel is not Network. It's a Storage Interface. ( as is Sata, IDE/ATAPI, SCSI, ... )
Ok, it's carried on fiber, but that's because usually there's a lot of disks connected to it, so it needs the bandwidth to feed all those disks with data.

- The routing towards Turbine is now carried by both AT&T and Telia, so depending your location you will use one or the other.
From my experiments it's a bit smoother ( but I'm in Europe and we European never had the kind of Lag lots of people complained about when the Tier 1 carrier was Cogent. )

Maybe Turbine is laying fiber to everyone's house via drones to improve the lag. It takes time to get to everyone's house.

They would use the hamsters, which makes sense as to why the worlds are down. They had to take the hamsters off the wheel so they could burrow their way to us. They don't have burrowing drones yet, that's a hamster thing.

The only assumption to be made is that since the updates have stopped, and we are 1 hour and counting passed the last updated time, is that they do not know at this point when it will happen. Or, everyone went to grab lunch real quick.

I've noticed that when the maintenance folks (mechanics, IT people, etc.) are working on something, the first time you ask them if the repair or maintenance is done yet they are polite when they tell you not yet. The next time you ask them, they are a bit snappish with their reply, by the third or fourth time you ask them the answer is "F*** U, It will be ready when I tell you it's ready!!!" They also begin to work slower the more often you ask them if it's ready yet. This is from personal experience of having a supervisor telling me to go ask the mechanic is working blindly with one hand up to his shoulder underneath a machine to replace a broken gear.

Man, if you're going to chastise someone, it helps if you use words in a way that makes some kind of sense.

Man, if you're going to chastise someone, it helps if you use words in a way that are constructive. Remember that intelligence is better found in understanding than criticizing. I'm pretty sure they meant "Stop crying like a child." In case you didn't understand :rolleyes:

UPDATE: The DDO game worlds are currently down to resolve a hardware issue. We'll keep you updated.

The DDO Game Servers will be offline for maintenance on Wednesday, February 11th from 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT). Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

We are breaking some uncharted ground here, at last it is admitted that it is not our hardware that's the problem!

ugh.... turbine....

so i get this:
i can finaly log in, after having having to wait an extended maintenance period that wasn't anounced well in advance to begin with.
i get to play a shortquest when the following messages about the game stopping and finding a safe spot to log out pop up:
30 seconds
19 seconds
20 minutes (this time in red world chat)
9 seconds
16 seconds
all within a second or two of each other
then the game shuts down

with this kind of failure in timing and planing, it's no wonder Updates come out in such poor shape and require so many patches to function (assuming you call the current state of the game "functioning")
You're not even able to do a proper countdown?
If i would do my job in this poor fashion i would be kicked out years ago.

Hardware issues sound serious. When I have those sometimes I have to buy new equipment. Better make alternate plans for the day. Thanks for keeping us in the loop Cordovan. I hope snow is not putting too much of damper on your day. I also hope Sev does not have to drive to Best Buy for new hardware to fix this :)

Man, if you're going to chastise someone, it helps if you don't roll your eyes after your lecture. Smacks less of guidance and more of passive-aggressive tendencies. ;) Geh... now you've got me chastising... please get the servers up and bring an end to the endless chastisement!

Wonder how long its going to take.... I've been patiently waiting at my computer since 10:47 AM eastern, hoping maybe we would get lucky, and Turbine would have finished early....But seems they working a little overtime lol, maybe they're fixing some of the lag issues.

In the grander scheme of things it is no biggie if you didn't find a safe place to log out. In the old MUD words that could be an issue - and could really be an issue if you had died. For those unfamiliar with MUDs - you die someplace in the world - then you had to go back to your corpse and loot the gear from your corpse. If you failed to loot then after corpse rot ( a pre determined time when your corpse (read storage device housing all your gear) would cease to exist and your personal effects would hit the ground for anyone to loot. -- THAT S*cks!!

You die in DDO - no loss of exp, no loss of gear no loss of anything really....go back to your quest go back to your grind.

For most of us as power players (if you will) all we are losing by their down time is grind time.....do you really miss the grind time that much?

It is always great to bash the techs doing the work right. . .

Problems in IT never have anything to do with staffing problems, poor management decisions, corporate mandates, hardware problems, provider problems. . .

I just want to play some darn DDO already. I've been waiting since like 1100 this morning lol. Which I guess if you want to get technical, thats just as much as my fault as Turbine or whoever it is that is working on the servers.I could get up at anytime, but I am addicted to this game. Hopefully some servers will come back up soon, I don't even need my main server I'll roll some 28 pointers on other servers just to play lol.

Bah! Turbine just sent their hamster necromancer on vacations this week and the "create hamster zombie" wand went lost and has not been found so far. They are trying to get some Cannith Artificer to build up a small adamantine steam hamster force, but so far they could not resolve the problem of where to find a competent artificer.
