    Default Airship Amenities and Restart

    I want to be nice about this but you know when you say a restart will take 20 minutes and then it takes an hour. Then you say airship amenities will return an hour after the restart and after 2 hours they are not back. It gets a little hard to take.

    So I place a in game help and get told:


    I mean really? Submit another ticket and have it instaclosed with generic text?????

    Come on turbine FIX THIS!!!!

    Kind of tough when you are in a large guild and people are logging in often to make sure to keep it clear for 5 minutes, especially after a restart.

    i dont know if Turbine can do anythin about that. sience almost every downtime/restart/whatever the ship buffs have to load allover again, on EVERY ship, this can take a while. i dont think there is a team that manually loads the buffs... i wont say that '' be glad you have the ship buffs coz there was a time they didnt even exist'' because u might have spend some real money on them. but still, we know this issue quite a long time now. ships buffs have to load in all server(s)..

    If the servers didn't crash every weekend and then also get restarted every Monday I'd be a lot happier. This is getting to be irksome. And yes we do spend money on some of the buffs which the clock ticks on when they are not usable. So it is also a monetary issue involved for some of the guild.

    Plus having to spam guild chat with explaining why the buffs aren't there yet after a restart.

    Turbine needs to figure out the issues that are causing the crashes and fix them! I won't even start with the hits to renown every restart. Welcome to the life of being a larger guild on a server that is probably the least stable server.

    agreed in everythin there, even if i know that the crushes and restarts and lag and buggs wont be resolved any time soon... i totally understand that, this is kinda unacceptable for ppl whopay to play the game, but...

    and last thing, there is the Messege of the Day, if u want to say something to the guild!! hehe!

    Message of the day is full of other good information for guildies and directing them to the guild website which we have posts about the delayed amenities on the guild website. But still it wouldn't be a hassle if Turbine fixed all I have mentioned which are starting to become game breakers for me and I bet a few more of my guildies.

    They always take an hour to repopulate. Turbine announced the reboots days ago. It even shows up on the window where you logon. And usually a large guild = experienced players.

    You should know to gtfo the ship for the buffs to repopulate.

    However, I do agree that the servers crashing as often as they have been is an issue, and needs to be resolved.

    But bashing on Turbine because you don't have your buffs yet while you haven't reset the ship is total poo.

    Let me get this straight. Every time a guildie logs in during the time we have spent off the ship before the 5 mintues is up. We have to wait an additional 5 minutes for the ship to reset after they as you so eloquently put it, GTFO the ship. And you don't see a problem here with larger guilds?

    Oh and before you say everyone should prepare for the reboot by logging out off of the ship, You tell that to the someone who has over 20 characters on an account, they aren't going to alt around to all 20 and move them off the ship just to make the repopulation of the shrines easier.

    I'm only bashing Turbine now because this is becoming a bigger issue with the frequency of the recent server crashes and it's an issue they have known about for long enough to make a hot fix to deal with this.

    This is probably only the second or third time I've posted a rant bashing Turbine on these forums since I started to play the game the day it hit stores. I'd think I shouldn't get told to just GTFO of the airship or else it's total poo.

    Odd, all of our buffs were there right away.

    Just cause it didn't affect your guild's airship doesn't mean it didn't affect my guild's airship.

    That's not quite how I put/meant it (referring to the last sentence.) Yes I am aware that it can be a major PITA with a large guild.

    The comment you said about someone with 20 alts needing to login to each one and get them off the ship, makes no sense. If the toon isn't logged in, then it doesn't matter. The ship can still be reset.

    Did I even hint toward that?

    Agree to disagree to what?


    Thanks to Mem, I can give this to you;






    Have happy joy-joy day and make it be all fluffy pink ponies with sparkles and marshmellows!

    I have 2 accounts with 15+ characters on each. So just follow this for a minute...

    I log in and notice that I am not going to be running that character on even though it was who I hoped to run, since guildies asked me to help them with something with a different alt. Now I log out and grab a different character. Based on time it takes to maybe log out and swap accounts I could cause 10 minutes of delay in the buffs now if that happens again a few times through the delays it adds up. Or someone else logs in after we've been clear for 4 minutes?

    Today it happened for 2 hours our buffs were gone. Maybe airships should take less than 5 minutes to reset. A simple fix to an issue that Turbine has known about for long enough to have done something about it. I am sorry but I don't want me or any other guildie having to be the guild ship police just so it can repopulate after every restart.

    Plus if you read what the customer support person said for me to do you'd realize that their suggestion was just assinine as it would have led to me being told the same thing by the next support person.

    You may not have hinted toward that but it's a typical refrain on these forums. Just cause I don't experience the Lag, Missing Ship Shrines, etc... it doesn't exist.

    I was having a happy happy joy joy day. Thanks for your additional wishes.

    Curious. I wonder if we can come up with any kind of stats for how long Amenities come back relative to size/time/server?

    On Thelanis, with a small guild. There was only 1 time where our amenities took longer than 10 minutes to repopulate (I think it was after the first amenities fix) Since then, it was back almost immediately.

    I'm assuming Hendrik is in a large guild, so it surprises me that they come back sooner than an hour for him.

    Yes, Large.

    There were there when I logged in, not two minutes after server up and people already on the boat. Also odd, that this was the only report about amenities that I have seen.
