    I am sure the devs don't like these maintenance as well but it got to be done to fix important stuffs, as mentioned in the patch notes.

    I don't mind these maintenance, usually down time is not long at all.

    Yes, it can be the busy night but if they don't fix it, it won't be a busy night at all.

    Very glad y'all could work a patch up this quick. Have really liked the changes I've been seeing and how the company has been behaving during the C19 disruption to normal life. Thanks.

    Um, can you really call Emergency Maintenance "scheduled maintenance"? And, right in the middle of Friday night in your biggest market? Yeah, whoever thought that was a good idea should probably not make those decisions in the future. We've had an entire day today to do this. Poor, poor, poor planning, even for "Emergency" work.

    I would much rather they do the maintenance now than for them to wait for it to be slow. The fixes are very much needed so players can actually play the new content.

    Well seeing as how it's Friday night I'm sure the employee's want to get it fixed and go back to their lives for the weekend. I'm thankful we're not waiting until next week. These same people would be here throwing a stink if it wasn't fixed till next week anyways. People be people...

    The work on Hell Pit is much appreciated. I did not get stuck in mid floor and the fight while a challenge was acceptable. Thank you for fixing and for extending the days by 4

    @nitocris83

    Here's my idea, how the Rage of Bel thing could work for all.

    We start with a clean instance.

    1. Bel is on cooldown for 30 minutes.
    2. While Bel is on cooldown, Insurgencies are open and can be done indefinitely.
    3. When Bel cooldown reaches 0, every Damage in the Insurgencies fills the rage-meter.
    4. When rage-meter reaches 100%, Insurgencies close and Bel can be challenged the next 30 minutes.
    5. After 30 minutes Bel goes on cooldown for the next 30 minutes and the Insurgencies open again.
    6. While Bel is on cooldown the Insurgencies can be done intefinitely.
    7. see nr.3

    Right now the Insurgencies are open for 5 minutes or so, and that is definitely not good.

    I mean, the new content was completely broken--so yeah, please go down and fix it.

    An addendum - having waiting around for the insurgencies to pop, i jumped straight into the portal once available, i managed to move my magic absorbed just 3% from 20 - 23% before Bel emerged and the insurgency closed down around me. It turns out the charge is accrued by killing Mobs, so Tanks and Healers (i main a Paladin) are absolutely up the creek here. Surrounded by DPS players we can't compete with their kill rates (you designed us that way).

    3% every two hours, if im lucky enough to catch it. This can not be what you intended. I have multiple toons, there is no way i can or want to run them all through this debacle as it stands.

    I had no issues getting 20% on my Paladin, what's your build?

    Ok well, I had an hour to play today, and totally missed the insurgency.

    Please change the timer on insurgencies, it's very inconvenient for people who have lives.

    Maybe make insurgencies and bel per instance instead of server wide? That way we can at least zone hop like we do with bhes. Idk, but this current model of expecting players to be waiting around for hours so as to not miss that 5 minutes of activity, well, it sucks.

    I'm on a hybrid Tank build when i solo, 187k power and all other stats capped with optimal companions, legendary mounts etc., i think it very much depends on who else happens to be in your instance and how many instances are running. On day 1 I got my 20% easily, but of course the insurgence was up pretty much solidly. Today I found myself in an instance with perhaps 15+ other players who all seemed to be DPS and were one shotting mobs constantly. By comparison when i solo Bel himself its a walk in the park, with me needing either 2 or 3 catapult rotations to take him out in the runs ive done so far.

    In the insurgence I was trying aoe to hit as many as possible, and smite to try and one shot mobs myself. The 3% i got seemed to come from when i engaged a mob alone, and manged to kill a few before anyone else arrived. Joining an already engaged mob was pointless, or even one near an already engaged mob didn't give me sufficient time.

    All that combined with the fact i was being generous with my 5 mins above, in reality i doubt i even got a full 3 mins between managing to get into the portal and it ending, im not sure i could have got 20% with no else in that instance in the time provided. - How long was your insurgence up for?

    Now we have to compete against one another to get our percentage for the day.

    What are the requirements to get a percent? Is it really based on what enemies you hit, or defeat? It sure seems like the latter.

    Instead of the asinine way that was introduced which limits players to have to use damage-focused load outs (mind you, I prefer playing Cleric Healer), why not have it track based on participation? You participate once a day to get 1/5. Next day, 2/5, and so on. Was the thought that it would discourage folks from not doing them to raise the Bel meter?
