    6pm on the west coast, kinda late on a friday night for them to take the shard down. Must be something half big! Typical winter event! Tomorrow will be an automated script of the ban hammer lmfao

    Prime time on a Friday night - because someone really knows how to make a business profit! And keep customers happy. :D

    This was pretty HAMSTER' short notice. I was taking an alliance mate through FBI - his 1st time. Got to Drufi and it just cut off at 50% health. Not nice :c

    It must be something related to some bug or exploit that makes you win big amounts of AD, only in those cases is that they do emergency patches and at this time of day. :D

    I've seen this hashed out before bit for some reason they think Facebook is a better place to announce then their own forums. Well, I for one HATE the Book of Face and use it only when absolutely necessary. Thanks for letting us know the details. The launcher doesn't even say anything about the maintenance, I wonder what was so important they had to take it down now?

    Nothing to do with the game.

    Apparently emergency hamster replacement to keep the servers running.
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    Maybe someone forgot to feed the hamsters
  • rjc9000rjc9000 Member, NW M9 Playtest Posts: 2,404 Arc User
    Are you guys replacing the server hamster in preparation for the Christmas holiday?

    If so... that's a lot of hamsters you guys are replacing...

    Lol, someone forgot to dump the entitled garbage. This probably has to do with the server lag since last patch- perhaps they had a server fail to start, or just running slow. At 1.5 hours this is more likely an emergency reboot to keep it from crashing without announcement, with a much longer downtime.

    But please. HAMSTER some more about how you should be compensated for downtime in a free-to-play game.

    They say it's not related to the Event but people are getting 1,2,3rd place in events and getting 0 rewards, purple and blue mount with only 2 insignia slots? Zen gift box may be glitched too. Drop rates seem bad. This happened last year and they gave us 2 extra weeks of Winter Fest. Not sure if similar issues of what the deal is this time. I guess we'll find out. I agree bad for EST people but if they fix the problems then worth it :)

    Great community communication! Facebook/Twitter will be our first point of contact they say, nothing posted. Totally ignore the official forums, @strumslinger we miss you!


    Edit: Thank you for posting it, sucks that you waited for the game to go down first.

    I wish he'd come back too... so many issues he'd have been right on top of... new classes would have had their deadlines met too. I miss him also :neutral:
