I'm glad it went down. The load times were horrendous and a lot of us were hoping for a re-start to get around one bugged quest (AD in Reaper's March - part of Queen's quest line) that was not fixable by re-logging.

 

Yeah it sucks that it's down during prime time but it was a pretty shitty prime time tonight.

I wish all players had this attitude - but the reality is a bitch - especially when it comes to P2P games, gamers expect perfection for those $15 a month.

If this were F2P - almost everyone would give them a pass - but every outage ZOS has - costs them subs - that's reality.

ZOS is their own worst enemy right now - players are liking the game, but when you can't play - it's not good.

 

This is cutting an hour out of my planned play time. By my math that means I've been cheated out of  $0.02 at the rate of $0.50/day. Quit acting like $15 a month is a lot of money. It's a new MMO and it's got more uptime and less bugs than most launch MMOs I've played.

I just hope now that it's back up soon - as we're coming up on 1 hour now - was really hoping for one of those quick 30min outages.

Oh well.

Not all play time is the same - that's the problem.

Sat night - guild night - you should hear the vent chat about now - folks are just pissed - rightfully so as many have ditched plans with their loved one for this.

That's what your math doesn't take into consideration - yes every hour is the same as far as $$ - but it's NOT the same in reality.

Sat nights/guild nights etc.. are a hell of a more valuable than an hour in the middle of the week when everyone is soloing.

So what value do you give it? If it's the only night you play per week and you play 4 hours each weekend then you're paying about a dollar an hour. It's a video game, how much pain and suffering are you being caused? I went and curled up on the couch with the wife and watched old X-Files on Amazon, not really the worst night of my life by far.

Yup, 2 hours of minimum wage earnings to pay your share of O&M, overhead and profit per month. Not exactly a big chunk of change.

Growing pains =/= really bad coding.

Their servers get more and more unstable with time and this wasn't a too many players issue because we're still only barely if ever seeing overflows appear. And the last time we saw overflow was because their servers were crapping themselves all on their own.

But ya, sure, the issue is they have a billion players all trying to log-in and crashing the servers because overflows don't exist on completely separate architecture and we've somehow outstripped the stress test parameters... which is next to impossible.

Again - your perspective is singular - as in "how does it affect me"

It's entirely different when you are in an active guild - it affects a large pool of people that all had an expectation of playing together, again - Saturday Nights are the most common "guild nights" for many games - having downtime during this is a lot worse than having it on tuesday morning when majority of players are working and not playing.

Consider it from a guild perspective - it's not the same.

"Shutting down threads sense 2004"

4/13/14 12:04:10 AM#55

For me it's not about the money, if this is a one time deal or only here and there I won't have a problem, however if it is like other games I have played that have weekly weekend downtimes I definitely wouldn't sub after the free month, why? Because my interest will be peeked elsewhere when I have game time I want to game then, not on their time sorry.

Shit happens no doubt and this is not the first MMO to have this happen nor the last I am sure, but for me I know this is how it goes so it's probably safe to some what say others feel the same. In the end it only hurts the company not me, I can do something else (as others have said on this thread)  and would most likely if this becomes a weekly event for more then 3 weeks.

It sucks but it'd probably be healthier for must of us if there was alot more downtime to keep us out of the game lol.

With all the giant bugs in the game, this is required. banks disappearing, items gone, login problems and still....all kinds of quest bugs.

I hope they keep it down until they fix some of these bugs.

Lots of pissed of guildies right now.

Sort of sad.

Zenimax does not seem like they were ready for this - their apparent inexperience/unreadiness in running a AAA MMO is showing right now.

Sorry to sound so bitter - but I am pissed off, as we had grand plans for tonight, and it's just been miserable.

/VENT_OFF

I believe this is a case of the PvEers ruining your PvP experience again.

 

They're probably trying to fix the main Coldharbour story line quest as it has been buggy as hell the last 5 days leaving a huge amount of people in the upper 40s-50 range unable to progress as all the VR content is gated behind that story quest.

 

And yes I agree they do appear unready to run a AAA mmo.  If you're going to gate a huge part of the game behind quests, you had best make sure they aren't bugged.
