I just want the game to be up so we can play STAR WARS. But, now I feel like I deserve compensation after that little antic.
He, Eric, later said the codes were not compensation but rather a little something for whilst we're all haunting the forum. If you click on the "B" at the header of the thread and "next" through Eric's messages, you'll find it.

My ISP compensates you just have to have a brain and know how to talk to them in order to get it. I actually pay more for the sub here than i do to my ISP so a few CC to compensate isnt asking much. Especially considering the over priced cartel market

I'm sure there will be some kind of apology for "Sorry, no Star Wars today," but I'm not sure what form it will take.
There had better be something, otherwise I really am going to rethink supporting this game further...

First they add a stronghold we can't even use because of the conquest cap/stronghold cap, then they bug the holy living hell out of the game because they didn't do proper testing of the content before releasing it, then they add insult to injury by giving a very tiny group of super fast internet users free things right in front of the whole community, and then after all that...

They refuse to make fair play to the rest of us that are literally being screwed right up the tail-pipe by not making those things available to everyone that is being horridly affected by their incompitant job...

Talk about one giant steaming pile of....

It does happen from time to time. Usually when something major breaks. You do not see compensation for scheduled down time. You see it when things like the server had a total melt down and had to be completely reset to a previous condition and it took about a week. That got me a month of subscription time on a game I played back in the early 2000's. You rarely see it for a one day downtime sort of issue, but if it turns into an all day unscheduled downtime and then morphs into multiple days you might see something. Though what is anyone's guess.

Heh, you are likely not in the software business, and neither is the one you are quoting. Of course we SW developers hate buggy releases, but we are much ashamed when they happens and we add more tests for the next release. That is one sour spot BioWare has not learned yet, to test ahead of release.

Let me guess ...

Someone tripped over the power cord and now they're trying to find the power socket to plug it back in. Or are we beyond that step?
