What's funny is they get this post, when they did not in fact do more than make a simple announcement that there was no downtime.

Every MMO I have played has had daily or weekly downtime, so frankly, I do find it unusual that a company would be able to not require any.

It could mean that 1.2 is near, so they are going to be pulling the servers down for that any ways. *shrug* doesn't hurt to wish.

This..

From the posts I have seen there is maintenance going on just without the downtime. Some niggles from a few servers but going well. I wonder if this is what the hot fix to increase server stability was about.

No reason for downtime for regular maintenance other than performance concerns of the server with the right architecture.

One of the things about the hero engine I believe was that it could do things like this.

One of the things I always noticed in FFXI was that the week before a patch went live, they didn't pull servers down for maintenance.

There was no DT this week as a lot of staff have been pulled over onto ME3 to make a better ending.
