    It's a hardware problem, not a patch problem. sorry to burst your bubble.

    Hm, and how long has the hardware been a problem? Probably longer since people have been crashing hardcore on our server for at least 3 weeks?

    Listen, your fixing our problems and we are grateful but what YALL fail to understand is we are a pvp server. We are naturally competitive people.

    ARENA is the primary time where we can flex our competitive side and you choose to "fix" your problems during our, the customers, favorite time.

    No, thats not ok and not intelligent.


    Thats like CBS shutting down for "emergency situations" during primetime... it doesnt happen. You know why? Because its flipping primetime.

    How do you know this issues hasn't been going on since the last maintenance, oh right you don't know and PWE maybe have just received patch notes today to fix the problem. So it was 77% chance for the whole to crash since last maintenance, if that was unknown problem. I'm sorry if you don't do PvP that why I play this game.
    It's a hardware problem, not a patch problem. sorry to burst your bubble.

    What was that now?

    And silv3r, if they were "choosing" to fix it at that time, then it wouldn't be an emergency late notice maintenance. You don't know when they found the issue. You're just making assumptions. Sure, people have been crashing, but the SERVER is at risk of crashing, not the people. That is a MAJOR difference.

    On a side note: Will Lycan's be getting their own Racial fashion?? O:

    I mean, the Tribal fashion is cute and all, but each race as their own fashion unique to each race, so do we Lycans' get one too?? o: *simply just curious about it.*

    ^-^ Keep up the good work!~

    Again; Ty for catching this issue. o: <3333


    We do love you. Just some of us are more dense than others. :3

    Ok lets say my car broke down, it is necessary for my line of work. Do I choose to put it in the shop at 6pm after I am out of work or at 7:55, 5 minutes before im suppose to be in work?

    You always have a choice, they made the wrong one. Customer complaints are the way companies learn from their mistakes. Thank you very much

    Christ I have to get a translator just to read that ...

    As Kraken already stated the issue is in fact hardware related. Now anybody with half a brain and three days of experience with a computer knows that hardware failures can happen at any time and with absolutely no warning. So while the issue may have been an encroaching crises for the last week, it likely did not come to the attention of the tech team until just within the last hour or so. So once again you label yourself voluntarily ignorant and blind to the reality around you and seek instead to sequester yourself in the pseudo-reality you've created in this virtual environment.

    And just to put the record straight I do in fact enjoy PvP combat on a regular basis. Sadly however Arena is not my preferred choice for a productive and entertaining envorinment. If I wanted to fight somebody in a fish bowl, I would play games like League of Legends instead.

    1 NO ONE I REPEAT NO ONE IS MAKING YOU BUY SHEET :rolleyes: hell the same money you CS with can be used for all th other games they host instead -DERP- why would that ake a difference on problems they just found

    2. ok lets say you buy a car pay it off... now the cops come up saying they just found out the guy you got it from stole it... now they have to take it back, all the money to pay it is off gone the car is gone and you cant get it back because it is now used as evidence in a hot car... essentially thats what would happen if they dont fi it now with the characters all the cs EVERYTING...

    back to last patch? psh if its hardware it could be rollback to beta :rolleyes:

    Those are two completely different scenarios due to a number of reasons. 1) When did the car break down? 2) Is the car breaking down causing you to lose weeks worth of data? 3) What hours are you available to take care of the car?

    To put it simply, you can't compare the two. As I stated before. Who's to say that 5 minutes in to arena the server crashes, thus preventing any logging on. Then because of the crash, everything, and I mean everything, the players have done the past week or so is gone. That purple weapon someone obtained? Gone. The triple acc ID on said weapon? Gone. Your arena score you obtained? Gone. All of it, in the blink of an eye, gone. Say they let that happen. Next thing you know, the forum will be flooded with "WHERE IS MY STUFF I DEMAND COMPENSATION BOGOS PROMOS QQ". Plain and simple.

    So instead of running the risk of the server crashing within that time and all that data being lost, they take it down now when they come across the issue so that you only lose 2 hours worth of playtime rather than however many weeks.

    Problem is some players don't care about crashing or losing thier items, they just want to run around and PVP the **** out of other players.....they are upset that arena is being taken away instead of fixing the issue....I'm 99% sure that these are the same players that post about the crashes NOT getting fixed, and now that it is getting done they aren't happy since it's not on "thier" time but yet on the companies time

    The crashes are a client side software problem, nothing to do with a hardware issue server side LOL, you people :)

    Who cares, the servers are down, go play Pokemon for an hour, or angry birds, something.....

    Oh really? My question still remains

    1. When did the hardware Problem Surface or become a problem?
    2. No i wont lose "data" idiot, I'd lose future days of WORK. Another use of "Data"
    3. Why couldnt that have done it earlier or later? Because obviously they could have if it was such a horrid emergency.

    Frankly, I didnt read the rest of your post because it seemed like random correlations of " oh you could lose this and that" and its only a CHANCE! ITS NOT GUARANTEED!


    So if its not a guaranteed fact, its void in my mind because even if they DID reset someones data it can be easy compensated.

    The FACT still remains, they could have delayed it 1-2 hours. The end

    they have a point i guess... but fixing is priority.

    i literally just got home from work and cant play.

    some of you guys have had all day and i believe at least one arena opportunity.... i got to wake up at 6am, collect daily attendance (lucky i did it in the morning i guys) then be out of the house for 13 hours to find i cant login... yet im not pissed.

    count your blessings guys, how many times have we laughed at the PvE guys rage about their servers going down.... while ours was fine.

    VagueAngel: if I was unable to play the game for 2 weeks I would just find a different game because there is not much special about this one other than some people I've met playing it and, of course, the occasional satisfaction I get from burning people with my phat flamethrower gun.

    1. Today, a few hours ago, about when we called for the emergency maintenance.
    2. Yes, you could lose data, the whole friggin server could be wiped. I daresay that VASTLY outweighs you losing one arena out of the week.
    3. See answer for 2.

    Easily compensated? no, if the whole server got wiped, you'd all be boned, there's no way we could restore it.
