source?

Where do I get my warlock a tinfoil hat so that "The Nerf" won't get to her?
Is the tinfoil hat +100 Spell Resistance, +100 hardness and +100 Nerf Resistance?

Forgot +100 Blunt Resistance... I heard the Nerf Hammer is a bludgeoning weapon!

You missed your shot at getting a tinfoil hat (http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Foil_Hat) during the Anniversary party... sadly, Big Brother shut it down after undocumented kobolds shot Severlin while he was faking a portal to Greyhawk.

Cut it out man.

Cordovan had to apologize for using the term/tactic in the past, so what makes you think it's okay for you to do it?

It's fine to disagree with people, and it's fine to defend the Developers, but it's not okay to try and troll the people who are unhappy with the game by using that term.


Not cool, think about it next time please.

If the game worlds are now open how come I cannot log in anymore? Loading screens just fail to load all the time, been sat on one for more than ten minutes and no activity. Normally takes less than twenty seconds. It doesn't even make repeated attempts it just sits on attempt 1 of 20, with a "Connection successful" I'd hate to see an unsuccessful one.

Same here. This needs to be fixed. I don't know why this is still a problem, It's 4:33 in the morning, I just got home from work. How did nobody notice this for what 16 or more hours? Please fix this. This is the type of thing that makes me quit games altogether. This is completely unreasonable.

Same issue. At first, I could log in to the game but not load a character - now I can't get past the first loading screen before character selection.

This persists through a reboot, a driver reinstall, and reinstalling DDO entirely.

Hmm, today on Thelanis it looks like Auction House semi-broken or at least; it appears that its semi-broken for me: Items never expire when down to '1 minute' remaining... The pages of '1 minute' on the Auction House are growing but the same items still remain even after 1-hour. It looks like something unfortunately didn't go to according plan during the last downtime maintenance.

OK...so yesterday extended downtime for maintenance....awesome...clean it up a bit..do your thing.

Today...stuck on load screens. was able to get in for enough time to roll a "1" on my daily roll....go to ship's captain to go for a Wiz King and get stuck in a load screen. Restart client. back on ship. Again, go to sands for Wiz king....load screen stuck. Go to log in. stuck in load screen "cleaning up old connection".

Funny...logging in was a breeze, but getting to the actual game....impossible.

So yes...I'm complaining. Here. Haters, go ahead and "hate". Don't really give much of a &#^@. The lag is ridiculous. Log in's are sometimes impossible. I like this game, I truly do, otherwise I'd not have spent so much time, money, and effort with it.

So...a bit more looking at this....I can get into Khyber and Orien (toons there that I never play) but cannot log into Thelanis...where all my main toons are. So...anyone else having the same problem?

Yes, I could login for a short while... Until I tried to get to House K. That failed. Now I'm in the same boat as those that are getting stuck continuously at the "Loading Screen...". The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men. Alas it looks like I won't be able to login until Turbine can find a solution to the login problems people are having. :)

Stuck on loading screens on Thelanis as well. 2 out of 3 Times I fail to log in for the first time, even if I succeed I get stuck after the second location.

I logged in, was running over to The Twelve with my ranger. Got a bit of lag, thought it was me so I checked everything on the pc. Try to log back in and getting the load screen.. When they do maintenance, you'd think that would mean they are "actually fixing bugs" not making it worse.

Some acknowledgement of the problem and reassurance that it is being worked on would be nice.
How are you guys posting in the future?

Official recognition of problems tend to come reluctantly if at all from the powers that be.

Same problem here on Orien. I was able to log in to the game but cannot zone anywhere without getting stuck in a load screen or a blank screen. I have killed the client and tried several times before finding these posts ...

It's ridiculous.. Guess they just noticed after some of us have not been able to access for hours.. been 3 hours myself. Can't be too early for them. They start maintenance at 6am my time so thought it would make sense they'd notice the servers crashed. Ah well.. hopefully they get it done soon.

Monkatopher
11-17-2016, 08:54 AM
Awesome. Argo back up ! All other servers should be good to go as well.
