    We are not rolling anything back, just fixing the expiration date on the item.

    7 PM to 8:30 PM is stupid early.

    Also, this directly conflicts with a possible Resource Wars time

    Why can you not run this maintenance at say, Midnight, 1 AM?

    Because then we have to be here until 2~3AM, and if something goes catastrophically wrong, even later.

    Good job on fixing this so quick, but it'd be really great to get the normal font back during this mini maintenance. The current font is a mono-spaced eyesore. b:surrender

    Usually it's for the reason you'd imagine; we don't want to inconvenience too many of you guys.

    However, this is a special situation, what with the crystals, so we want to get it done as soon as we can.

    Maintenance time. Please choose a line:
    - When is it over? OMG I need my fix!! *super spazzing*
    - Fix the damn bugs, dammit! I'm so angry! I'll quit!!
    - New codes out there? I like free stuff~ *wink*
    - When will we get new content? QQ
    - Will we get sales? I got a ton of gold to spend.
    - I'm bored, I'll create a useless thread to annoy Opkorock.
    - *Incessant poking on Sweetiebot* Fun~

    Pretty sure these have to be turned on manually by gms and unfortunately 9am is like right when they get into work. Morai had their Tuesday event likely because their own gms turned it on.

    If your doing maint to fix the crystals, what about our crystals we had saved from previous week? we don't get those back? i almost had enough to get an reward.. also the anniversary ticket thing, read you get it every 2 hours? that doesn't happen after you collect it once x.x

    so why would this maintanence happen now well knowing that in about two hours two weekly events start?

    Most goofiest timing ever, why not do the maintanence early morning or late at night when less people are playing or did someone at the office draw the short straw and had to stay late in order to do this?

    Ok so edit, reading previous threads someone did draw the short straw....

    Hi all,

    We will be performing an emergency maintenance tonight at 7:00pm PDT to fix the expiration date on Sparkling Crystals (see http://pwi-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1749471 for more information).

    We expect the server to be back up no later than 8:30pm. The Smoke Over Archosaur event that was scheduled for 7pm will be starting as soon as the servers are back up.

    3 times in the last week it's all bullshllllttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you refer to the link in the FIRST post.


    "UPDATE 4:30 pm
    I just heard back from the developers about the Anniversary Tickets. Unfortunately, it seems it ultimately boiled down to miscommunication; you're only supposed to get one ticket per day after two hours, not one ticket every two hours. Since this was the original design it's not something that can be changed, but I will be making sure that the text is updated accordingly in the next patch.

    We've also confirmed that the Scholarly Challenge is not giving Sparkling Crystals, and will be contacting the developers regarding a fix.

    Both of these issues are definitely being taken into consideration in our discussion about compensation, but we still don't have anything solid to announce regarding that yet (though I can definitely say it will NOT be war avatars. :P). I will continue to update this thread with more information as I receive it.



    UPDATE 2:00 pm
    We will be having an emergency maintenance tonight at 7:00 pm PDT to fix the expiration date on the crystals and stop them from disappearing. We will not be able to directly restore crystals that have been lost, but are discussing compensation options including extending the end date and/or running additional events. I will update this thread as soon as more information is available.

    Also, please keep this thread on topic about the anniversary. I understand there are other issues people want answers to, but it makes it easier for everyone if we keep separate issues to separate threads."

    Read the link in the first post. It was a typo. It was only ever supposed to be one per day, 2hrs after reset.

    Forget where it was mentioned, but the quest where you get a ticket every two hours was never supposed to be every two hours. It was more like the Lucidsilver/Lucidgold quests, once a day and must be on for 2 hours. Apparently it was a miscommunication between people.

    Hopefully they extend the event now that people know that, since I have no idea how you're supposed to get the orbs with it like that.

    I'm happy. Opened another meridan gate a few seconds before getting disconnected. (Since I take Screenshots of Serenity's gear now for the simplest shutdowns...since I do not trust PWI with it. I'm only hoping that gate stays open. We'll see. :D That's all that I'm hoping for from this maintenance...just let my meridan gate stay open...
