Hey folks,

I wanted to jump in quick for some extra details, I know many of you will look a Tuesday's 6-hour maintenance with no patch and be curious what is up. Especially since we have had a few like this lately.

Over the past couple of months we have been doing a variety of hardware upgrades in our datacenters. Extended maintenances, like next week's, are specifically for when we are replacing critical hardware. We need to build in extra time as we will be going through extensive testing as a part of these upgrades. Having extended time also lowers the risk of having to extend the overall maintenance time as well.

We try to minimize long hours of downtime but ultimately these upgrades offer better overall stability to the game in the long term. We appreciate your patience and hopefully... we are almost through this round of extended back-end maintenance.

Thanks all!

Would you guys be able to share any light on these hardware upgrades, perhaps reasons for upgrade etc?

I just hope you realize how much this interferes with those of us who use the 9:00 am time to get screen prints for Conquest. Would it be possible to do this on another day? Perhaps change the hours for Conquest to give us time before you start the new planet selection at 10:00 am?

Thanks for all your hard work to keep things running, but sometimes it messes up things in other ways. Don't worry I still love you guys.

Why always do maintenance on tuesday? You cannot pick the worst day imo as it interferes with conquest so much. What harm would it do to move it forward by one day and always do maintenance on wednesday?

It was stupid and absolutely uncalled for (and ignorant regarding player's needs) to get rid of the 24 h downtime of conquest anyway. It was perfectly fine before. Whoever brought that change forward didn't put much thought into this.
Just the incapabilty to not mess up the conquest on Tuesday's downtime was not enough reason to make that stupid change.

Or maybe the entire game doesn't revolve around Conquest? I mean, the server maintenance has always traditionally fell around APAC prime time even when there was a significant community there- it also affects the European players. They choose the time easiest for them to the least harm and we all have to live with it, regardless how much you want to complain about how it 'hurts your conquest' for them to keep the game running.

That's one of the things I don't mind paying a subscription for- not for them to create new issues to cater to Conquest losing, like the rest of us, six hours.

Ok, thanks! Can you guys also end pvp season since team ranked died and almost all skilled players already got their ratings in solo ranked so it is full of mat farmers

Maybe return to mods and enhancements not bound to slot??? Maybe let people actually choose what they want from the weekly Ossus 252 piece instead of EA forced lootboxes???? Maybe let us upgrade pieces we dont need to actual pieces we want like the previous system???? Maybe say **** you corporate ******** ******es and get rid of lootboxes????
