At 5PM PDT we will fix the issue with NWPC's invoke timer. This will result in a 15min. lapse in service. Thank you for your patience.

NWXbox will not be affected.

    Servers,

    I have never hot-fixed you before, I do not know the UNIX commands for it. Nothing, not even you, will store it in your memory, if it was good code or bad, why we patched or why you crashed. All that matters is that bugs were fixed, that's what's important. Patches please the Servers. So grant me one request, grant me non-extended downtime. And if the Servers do not listen, then TO BETA WITH THEM!
    Don't Panic.

    ...let's wait 24-30h before we cue in the Hallelujah chorals, and, having witnessed its timely reset after that, rejoice...

    ...shall we?


    Thanks to the dev team for the priority action, nonetheless - and hopefully a nice weekend!

    and what about the crashing, disconnecting, freezing, server not responding, rubber banding, delay in using your powers as you watch mobs pound you to oblivion and the disconnecting and hte freezing?

    is that going to be fixed to

    however to not get off topic or present just a complain front, i really do appreciate being able to invoke again - however what I would really appareciate is being able to play your game. I can't invoke if i can't get in game and stay in game long enough to do anything - like invoking.

    Most time I cannot load the map. When I can, I can't talk to the postal courier, can't raise the mount, the invocation show empty boxes. It shows the 'Ready', '+15 min', etc but there is nothing else in the box.

    So, now we have MAJOR lag and rubberbanding and we cannot spend the celestial coins or ardent coins (bugged)....system restore to before this 15min fix. I would rather not be able to invoke than have this lag and not spend my coins.

    game design devs are very different than network devs. it's even common for an mmo to employ multiple people to do multiple things aT THE SAME TIME!

    NW-DC9R4J5EH - 'The Black Pearl' - Spelljammer! Phlo Riders and Space Orcs
    Thanks for all the fish.

    Thank you so much for this fix! It's worked almost flawlessly for me.

    Out of 29 characters, 2 of them logged in with it not reset and the timer saying 0:00 but the moment I did anything, I got booted to the login screen. When logging back into that character, they were fixed and able to invoke. Another user told me they had the same experience on one of their characters, but in the end, after relogging in, all was well.

    And what's ur point, Dave? They fixed invoking and now we can't spend the coins...so what's the use of invoking? Guess i will "Invoke Anyway?"...lol. No lag issues before this upgrade fail.

    Late post is late. My apologies.
    If you haven't already gathered, the invoke issue is fixed and the servers have been up for quite some time. Looks like it only took our guys around 5-10 mintues.

    So here's a thought.

    To placate the ruffled hackles of all the Dragonborn, Drow, Dwarf, Half-Elf, Half-Orc, Halfling, Human, Menzoberranzan Renegade, Moon Elf, Sun Elf, Tiefling, Wood Elf (and who knows whatnot I missed) from the loss of Invoking.......a Coalescent Ward for all. Each and every Character.
    :rolleyes:
    Well, maybe one per account at least.
