    I sense there's always a conspiracy where the servers are down when I take a scheduled day off from work.

    Oh, well. Be sure that your team meets the Hamster Union Local #1324's current demands so we can play again soon. (I recommend the Cheez-It snack crackers and an I.V. drip of the Dew of the Mountain...always a winner.)

    Hopefully this maintenance will reduce the number of sudden game crashes. Started up pretty much with Cove and now that Cove is gone it's still happening :/

    That's exactly what I wanted to write here.

    I spend more time with rebooting my system and the client than with gaming.

    and that explains why account page and forum log ins are offline too how?
    it might be part of whatever is being done, but definitely not the only thing or even the primary thing, I assume.

    Maybe not an explanation, but there was a heads up. Server downtime was posted on the launcher on Friday saying it'd be down Monday. It's Monday. Servers are down. Go figure.

    For anyone else complaining about server maintenance... look here... it's a persistent, online world. Multiple worlds, in fact. It's not a console game, meaning, they can't work out every single bug before release, and they can't guaranty that new bugs won't pop up after release. So regular maintenance is actually a good thing, keeping the number of issues down. 4 hours now and then is a lot better than letting things go and having a 4+ day crash with no way of knowing what happened. Not to mention, does anyone know how easy or hard it is to defrag a server farm that's constantly running 24/7 with thousands upon thousands of people constantly coming and going, moving and shifting data around all the time? My computer defrags once a week, and it does it automatically while I'm sleeping. I set it up that way. Because if it defragged while I was awake, I'd be sitting here staring at the screen ripping my hair out waiting for it to be finished. I'd imagine defragging is a major issue for a server farm. Pop that into maintenance, and four hours is reasonable, considering my computer alone takes a half hour easily. Anywho, just my two cp.

    Great work Turbine! Appreciate all you do for us, and I'll be here waiting when you come back online! ^_^

    Could we please get at least a word on whether or not there will be client updates to download? You know, when you post a note that the maintenance break has ended?

    (Size of download, or at least a rough estimate, would also be nice to know in advance if there is a download.)
