sooo... a whole day of gameply gone and the recompense is 25 people who happen to notice first get stuff... really? Glad I was unsure and picked one month at a time. Unsubbed. It seems its the only thing that counts.

Good luck!

These codes were a joke. I would be less mad if codes were never brought into the equation. Now he was all "here are some codes, PSYCH!"

My guess is their main goal is to get the servers up before that time hits.

Here in the EU we're screwed for tonight and we know it. No amount of shouting will change that.

Hey folks,

Quick update. The team has a possible fix for the issues that cropped up this morning. To get them in place for testing is going to take approximately 2 hours from now, and then we can begin running that patch through testing. It is likely that over the next 2 hours I won't have much in the way of updates until we get into testing. Should that change, I will let you know.

When devs will understand that such code idiotism are only making people more mad, and they needed just to give 450 CC to everyone who tried to log in during the period of game non-working, it will be too late, people will go playing guild wars 2

Dear Dev Team & SWtoR peeps,

I know you guys are hard at work trying to get this all unciphered and fixed and I appreciate y'all's hard work for the amount of people you have, but can I make a recommendation. 25 codes got posted, that means 25 people just got whatever, and literally the entire rest of the fanbase lost out. With the downtime being so long, could you guys just give out the cartel coins to people's accounts, or with in game mail, so everybody gets a piece? I recognize this is going to take forever, but that's also time people generally have spent money to play, and that's money they're losing out on.

To the rest of the fanbase, instead of asking every five to ten minutes, what's the ETA? Just go outside or play something else for now. The more time you spend bugging the developers on the uptime of the game, it's time they have to spend looking at everybody's posts, and less time spent trying to figure out the cause of all the issues with the hotfix, like we can talk general discussion, but leave the developers in peace for now, until they can give us a timeframe in which they'll have everything working again.

Much love, and much concern, die hard Star Wars fan, Irrazius <3
