Well they accidentally made one of the conquest rewards repeatable that wasn't repeatable the last 2 times we did this. And CZ198 has pretty much nothing going for it too.

As for APAC players, no APAC players should have Tuesday night as raid night - after 10pm, lockouts reset, and Tuesday is the night that is always targeted for maintenance.

But when they decide not to do maintenance on a Tuesday night and do it instead on a Thursday night it annoys me. Cause Thursday night is a reasonable night to pick for raids.

But seriously, 8-11pm maintenance?
COME ON!

Could at least do it 2 hours earlier (1AM - 4AM PDT) and that way we get servers back at 9pm and aren't completely screwed over.

Personally, if it means a more stable game...take it down as much as you want.

Look, I love you guys, APAC players. But... Is it REALLY needed to complain that your raid is interrupted when the game itself is lagging to hell and in some cases, unplayable? Because I'm pretty sure that if they don't fix the issues, your raid won't happen as intended anyway.

Is it that wrong to want maintenance to happen 2 hours earlier? :P

They're probably fixing the Czerka area conquest title.

I'm glad our suffering is such a joke to you.


I'm sure downtime on the servers though during USA hours and everyone throwing a fit about it isn't karma =P

Haha, that is just laughable. We are now at the fourth unplanned maintenance following a patch, which makes 2.9 the most buggiest release since 1.1.5, where we got five unplanned maintenances (up to 1.1.5e). You'd think that they would have taken a closer look at the upcoming conquest events to make sure there are no bugs left, but it looks like only the players are capable of finding the exploits.

My guess on what they are fixing:
  • Increasing server stability
  • Adding a title and achievement for conquering CZ-198
  • Adding the Economy objectives, with bonuses when invading CZ-198

But why even do a hotfix - the damage is already done, and all they are doing is angering the APAC and graveyard shift players even more. Guilds already picked their planet, so they won't just go to CZ-198 just because the devs magically added more objectives to it. And the guilds that already picked CZ-198 will all be affected by these objectives equally. Fixing the objectives won't change much of the scoreboard positions, just increase the total points of all guilds.
Oh well, I am sure the higher-ups will soon put a stop to this when we continue to get an unplanned hotfix each week, and make sure that we get more QA testing.

6 hours? One of the Pub side guilds had over a million points within 6 minutes of the event starting, and only 8 players online. I guess they queued up a heck of a lot of crafting?
