    Who says there will be no update, hotfix or patch... These are the usual prolonged downtimes we have from time to time, and sometimes we get some new program data packages via updater afterwards. Since not every hotfix is discussed into details (and Cordo even had to swing the "stop-or-be-banned"-bat last time, I would guess we will not get too big an information on what they are hotfixing together with the general downtime this time either. But it would be nice to see some less expl*bannable word* afterwards.

    Cu online tomorrow after the downtime!

    They are taking it down to fix bards.

    Um yeah...
    Advocating repeated nerfs in the name of "balancing the game" then complaining about how DDO is moving away from D&D, is a direct contradiction in logic - D&D 3.5 (what DDO is based on) is not a balanced game. We can either have a balanced clone MMO with homogenized classes, or we can have a D&D game. We cant have both.

    That made me laugh. Thanks!

    Probably more to do with fixing some random cheat.

    It shouldn't take 6 hours to remove that shadow cloud effect from the new gear, but if that is what it takes please do it. it is well worth the wait!

    another downtime... for 6 hours... to fix bards? Sure they are the best class in the game, but how much nerfing do they need??

    Forgot to add that in March alone we'll have 18 hours of down time... and the month isn't over yet folks.

    It would be awesome ...
    If turbine for once fixed some off the broken / bugging stuff.
    Maybe even nerf the black cloud on new stuff / nerf the pink shadowside in mirror darkly.

    But servers probabaly go down to fix some random exploits like always.

    I am so old, that when i started gaming ddo - the bugpaige on ddo-wiki was only half a page.
    Nowadays it takes a full hour to read the bugpaige on ddo-wiki ... sadface.

    If I bring down the servers for standard maintenance, I would make sure to roll out and include every bit of fix that has passed QC until then. Downtimes are good for such things, because you do not have to put up a long "fix" list and do not get annoying questions on what is fixed and why other things are not.

    Maintenance is such a beautiful word...

    Since myaccount is down, I think this maintenance has nothing to do with the game side, but more on the login server side.

    Maybe they discovered that the account login servers were dropping connection and making accounts invalid during gameplay.
    Maybe the login servers just needed the three finger salute because of memory leaks.

    Better than the one-finger salute before shiping them to the fill, I would say... Anyway, if they have to have downtimes, it is logical to assume, since DDO is no newbie company in the business, that during downtime they will try to do maintenance on the game servers as well as putting forward any update finished so far... Just good old data economics, imho.

    Hopefully they can get the hamsters running again and finally find a way to bind the lag monster so it does not raise its ugly head like it did the last days...
