Well atleast we are getting somewhere, hoping it will be up and running soon. Want to get my daily fix in and it's currently 11:38 p.m here but thankfully I'm not starting work until 12 p.m tomorrow and who needs sleep right?

Of course, that being said, I know Sith does happen sometimes...it just kinda stinks.

Roll the crap back for f*** sake, almost 6 hours late now. Solve your problems later and test them on PTS. This is getting beyond ridiculous...

All The Best
that is what we call in the industry a lie to the player base. They do have an eta it just might not be very accurate...I have never had a boss that took no eta as an acceptable answer...

I pay for a service. Honestly, I'm not even bent out of shape about this. I'm just pointing out that people aren't happy about the fact that they can't play right now for various reasons, some of them not even reasons one might consider stupid. (For some people this might be there only day off for the week and they were genuinely looking forward to playing. And when you bust *** at work all week and you wanna play the one thing you paid for and it doesn't work? Leaves a bitter taste.)

And also--because pointing out that 'we' don't have to like it is just as silly as pointing out that people agreed to hiccups when they signed on to play the game and paid the sub fee.

No chill in yall's game. You're out literally 50c. If the servers are still down tomorrow, you're out a dollar. Like, get over it.
It isn't the money, it's the lost game time. For some people, today may have been one of those days when they can devote several hours to game play, when on other days they don't have available time. Perhaps, this was the one day of the week when they have that time, and now it is gone. This "inconvenience" deserves compensation. And I don't mean monetary, I mean game time. At least extend all subs by 1 day. I know it won't be much, or make up for the lost time, but at least it shows that BW/EA give a rats behind about their subscribers.

EA: Screw them, give us their money!
BIoWare: We are working to fix this so players can play.
EA: Get them to pay more!

EA all about money.
