Who does maintenance in the middle of the day?

Recommended Posts

And for 3.5h on top of that. Have you guys never heard of proper maintenance schedules for MMOs? 

 

This should be done at 4-8AM not noon to prime time, ensuring 30+ min queues even for premium members.

It's an American focused company, and game. We share certain servers with America at a guess so all have to come down at the same time.

 

It's a shame that they haven't learned to do zero downtime patching though.

I don't have an issue with the queues because I don't wait till prime time to log in, which everyone will be forced to do today. And I don't really see how more servers will help anyone, considering no one will abandon their character to switch servers at this point.

 

And to top it all off, my point still stands. Why not do this early in the morning instead of in the middle of the day?

Silly European, the servers came down at precisely 4am in Alaska.

America is all that matters.

There are these things called time zones. They are bringing them down in PST time which is at 4 AM, they can't magically make it 4AM around the world. Every MMO has this happen, just go outside and get a coffee.

This isn't just a patch, they are adding 4 servers.

It's 6AM in the central US.

Sure, that is the problem. They are just plain too lazy to work on different regions at different times.

 

Even bloody Trion could get this right...

It's a methodology that would mean adding in new servers would also not be a problem as this is already solved by zero downtime patching

And that is why every other MMO schedules separate maintenance times for NA and EU.

I have no issues but new servers won't help anyway since most people already progressed on their characters. Others could use that, since they barely logged in at all.

I bet you guys haven't paid a cent to Blade&Soul yet you're all up on their forums crying about downtime.

I say...

 

Blizzard did maintenance better than all other developers..

 

They did for the Eu servers when we were sleeping or during the morning or night, not in the frigging middle of a day.

The same goes for NA and the other servers.

 

Its sad that developers just stick to NA times and do maintenance only when its night in NA(which means they are sleeping).

Honestly it would have been better if they just made a different schedule for both NA and EU servers.
