Not that it's too harsh that we cannot play today (for us EU players), but as a just recently returned player and also a founder it is quite amusing that nothing's changed over the years. Patch day and everything goes south.
What i don't get is why they still don't hand out 'compensations'. Nothing big, just something small like 50 cc or some extra command stuff and it would smoothen all the hate some ppl seem to show

This really isn't that bad. This happens sometimes with the game. Either servers are still down or login isn't working. This kind of login happened before fore people with a physical security key and in the end they still fix it. All they need is time and less stress on there hands. I believe they are at least trying.

And I am from Europe too but you don't see me complaining.
Honestly I am not expecting anything in way of compensation.
After all we keep getting the same tired old astromechs every year.

You think they would be creative and do something unique like a unique crystal one year, a unique mount the next, a unique light saber etc.

But nope.

So much for coming home earlier from work today...

Sure, unexpected things can happen...but it's gone 4 hours now, almost more than the entire update was scheduled to take, (and no official news?!?).

Oh well, Im hooked on this game so will be back tomorrow for my fix...

Actually it's 7 hours and counting on the downtime in total. And yeah, unironically, it's pretty much time for Bioware to tack on a day of sub time for every European who couldn't play today because the service was down all night. People pay for 30 days or 60 days, not 29 or 59. Granted one day isn't much in the grand scheme, but 50 cents is 50 cents.

You guys are worst bunch of devs i've seen in a long time. From a 4 hours patch, which easily could be done within an hour you made it up to 7 and counting...

You better start to care about players in EU, not just be closed to USA playerbase... because at the moment you don't care at all about players in EU. Work on that, work on your team... You have a lot of things to step up...

You should really think about repaying us for our time on any way... because we pay you money for nothing really.

$15.00 for 30 days. 50 cents a day. 450cc for $5.00, so for arguments sake, lets say 50 cents is 50cc. So, lets all get this straight, every single entitled one of you demanding compensation for a whole day cause you lose 7 hours of gameplay, so basically you would like a full 24 hour 50 cent compensation for missing 7 hours.

boo hoo.

You don't like it? play at 3:00 am, no one forcing you to sleep, the only time you lose is your job, which you lose whether swtor is up or not.

I'm just checking out this game till Project Nova is in alpha to which i will certainly be invited to play. Created this account 2-3 years ago but computer at the time could not handle the graphics, just came back yesterday and decided to pay for a month, saw that game was going to be down today for update but still payed yesterday and i'm cool with just chilling till it's back up, downloading some games onto my ps3 and playing Dreadnought closed beta on my PS4, so i'm cool with chilling and being patient for the game to come back online.
I love Eve. But you don't just play Eve. You live Eve. Hence my issue with the game.. I ran out of time.

But I also hate weebs. Thinking of resubbing just to join the fight against them.
