    CEST:

    EDT:
    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converted.html?iso=20150813T06&p1=283&p2=263

    so 3 hours and a half would put it 5:30pm BST, 6:30pm CEST and 12:30pm EDT when the server is expected up.
    i stopped trying to ask trendy to add other time zones, i dunno whats going on there but nothing has ever come from it.

    what angers me about this maintance, was the 5 minute warning, and, then, mere seconds after it was posted, the servers went offline, talk about 5 minute warnings :(
  • nero#6673 nero Member Posts: 49 Arc User
    5 minute warning on a global game seems a little short - however if it is scheduled maintenance then that would mean that it could be anticipated as happening at the same time, same day, every time - so technically we should be able to know when it is before it happens - as in planning ahead.

    Just a thought

    i stopped trying to ask trendy to add other time zones, i dunno whats going on there but nothing has ever come from it.

    Why should she convert all the different time zones in the world? They invented this thing called the internet, it has this thing called Google, it will convert times to any particular time zone. It will also point you to a time converter if want one.

    Not all time zones. In the past she posted a link like this one

    and then she stopped, and it never returned.

    It looks like they are pushing lot of changes for lag in this patch.
    Let's hope it will realy help instead of making things worse like each last 4-5 patches.

    I now have SNR each 15-20sec even on EU time, geting DC 5-6 times in 3-4h,

    then around 2-3:00am (GMT+2) constantly under SNR, DC each 4-5mn at best.

    a few weeks ago my US fleetmates didn't had that kind of trouble but now I see some complaining too.

    I have doudts those changes will completely fix it since it's quite obvious it's hardware issues (servers/lan)... we'll see...

    It takes all of 5 minutes to seek the answer you need, less if you bookmark a time converter. You don't even have to leave the forums, download a time app on your phone, do the math in your head (doesn't always work for me, I admit.)

    I apologize, though, I keep forgetting that the internet has also made people forget how to do things on their own, and rely on others to do the work for them.

    I think the term goes all the way back to Ultima Online.

    oh? and your post is just as helpful as not posting relevant information when its required like just posting some basic details on timezones. in the past they used to post timezones.

    thats the problem, your not adding anythig that hasnt already been stated, if you wanted to be of some help, maybe you can be the official time and date poster for us? its a valid question even if it reads as a bit absurd.

    It does - I always chuckle when I hear the term being used in corporate IT by people who have never played an online game in their life.

    Keep an eye on the Status of STO (and several other Cryptic/PWE games with my Server Status forum add-in

    pwe_game_server_status.gif

    The Game Server Status Add-In was constructed to provide an at a glance status of several of PWE's game servers on the new vanillaforums. Once installed a traffic light panel will be added to the top of the page near the forum search box. Each Game's Initials are displayed together with a status light. A Green light means the game server(s) are online. A Red light means the game server(s) are offline. An Amber light on the main panel indicates that some of the game server(s) are offline. Hovering over each game's initials will display further information on the state of individual server(s) where application, split into east coast, west coast and europe. The add-in automatically polls the server status ever 5 minutes and updates the icons. As of current version (0.7) you can now select which games to show as shown in the above animation.

    Information and Installation details: https://github.com/Eiledon/PWEVC/blob/master/README.md#game-server-status-add-in

    Requires Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey or equivalent. Additional Installation help can be found on the linked page.

    My bookmarked time converter is set for my clients' time zones, and I'd have to pay to check any additional ones or delete those important, money-making ones. Not doing that.

    BTW The fact that I would appreciate courtesy doesn't mean I'm too stupid to use Google. Actually, I'm smart enough not to use Google but a better search engine instead. But considering your rude answer, you don't know what courtesy is, so we can drop this subject for the lack of common ground.

    Every time I did, people posted saying that due to their confusion over the time conversion website, they thought maintenance had been late past its regular time. Inevitably, while I am still more than happy to due so, I stopped because many people when given the tool still couldn't tell time.

    Also maintenance is done! Unlocked!
