What was 24 hours downtime starting with 6AM Thursday with completion estimated at 6AM EST Time Friday is still "ongoing" at 37 hours.

 

Turbine doing the right thing and giving credit and TPs to VIPs.

The "issue" with MMO development is that there are TOO MANY suits and not enough gamers making games.

I wonder what's up with that?  Restructuring a data-center maybe.

 

Is a major patch expected?

Not even "gameplay" related, that's the kicker.

LOL Billing.  To err is human, to really foul things up requires an accountant.

 

TY for ithe info,  Never even considered that side of things.

Still down and closing in on the 48 hours down mark which must be a record for an MMO downtime.

They have said VIP's will get a day extra VIP time for every day they lose plus 1 extra day on top of that plus 250 TP.

Premiun players will get 250 TP as long as they have logged into their accounts within the last 30 days.

Sounds like decent compensation better then what SOE gives which is nothing besides hampster videos.

It does and they are keeping everyone up to date via Twitter which is good.

Billing might possibly be the most important system.

Or not :) It's pretty common, at the f2p transition there were 1+ day downtimes, at the first Update after f2p again, and somewhere around Isengard launch too (though that wasn't continuous, they tried to gave back servers, only to switch them down again a few hours later... that lasted more than two days :) )

And of course the server migration to the US, but that doesn't count I think. And in Turbine's favor, they always give extra days when this happens.

Yes big downtimes are not unusual during patches, transitions etc... but this is scheduled maintentance. Maybe something has gone wrong that they didn't forsee.

 

I have faith they'll get it sorted though, they do listen to players and customers and keep this 5 year old game running.

One thing the downtime has shown me is that I am really keen to get back ingame and start playing again which hasn't happened in a long time.

I'm glad I started playing again as I have found a new vigour for MMO's again and LotRO in particular :)

I'm getting really annoyed at Turbine to be honest. It's been down since the 14th.

Well Scummy I hope it gets back up for you and you enjoy youre time there. I enjoyed LOTRO until I was just daily grinding at max lvl but it is a decent game. Miss my warden and hunter there.

But for those whining they are at least giving you something for it and keeping you informed. Far more then most do.... like SOE.

Yes, it's a fun game! I'm glad i started playing, too, and that Turbine is comping us for the downtime. Sadly, I just bought Asheron's Call because I wanted to play that and AC2. I made the purchase, right before the downtime and I still haven't been charged or got a receipt from paypal. It's funny that just when i wanted to play AC and AC2 this would happen.

 

Now it makes me want to get in game even more. Human psychology is funny that way. Back to Civ V, I guess, till the servers come back up.

Doesnt beat EQ2 Maintenance fiasco. SOE brought down EQ2 one friday for a quick server side patch and was supposed to be back up with in 3 hours. Unfortunately there was a huge crash, to top it off majority of the devs called in sick so they could play. To make a long story short they could not get the servers back up until wednesday the following week. Their apology for this screw up was 2 weeks of double exp.

"Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

Servers still down, beginning to think that there maybe some major issues that what we are not being told about.

surely if it was the patch they added they could just do a rollback...must be server related or maybe i,m wrong i know very little about how mmo's work..i have a hard enough time understanding them.
