what a joke - GREAT game but you programmers need to release less often
even companies with years of MMO experience still run into weird issues that get triggered by a new patch... but yeah there does seem to be an imbalanced prioritization as to how critical some of these updates are ... unless there are other issues that aren't being communicated.

I agree OP it is... and a sub losing problem especially when they book an 8 hour slot for it then muck something up and have to pull another 4 hours.. then a further 2...

Sloppy very sloppy all that's being fixed is what they've broken... considering there are still bugged class quests and bugs that have been around since beta...

I could not agree more. I come on at night once my work is done to enjoy some star wars, and lately it seems I only can play one day a week with downtime every night almost. I love this game, but this downtime is a waste of money.

I can't stand all the people who defend downtime, or act like it's no big issue. I know for a fact if the precious east coasters had downtime during their prime time, then half these defenders would be upset also!

Take the Op's advice if you are east coast and think we have no right to be mad. Then your a hypocrite, because you would be upset also if you were affected!

And to the people saying ITS ONLY 15 BUCKS QQ......Its more then that. The price of the box, for me the CE. Not to mention the collateral money we pay just to play..Internet, electricity and on and on.


Thats alot of money. Period. And in this economy?


I bust my butt, and I want service for it. No service/no money...simple

The trick is to find hilarity in some of the more ridiculous things people say. Many complaints are valid, but some are just too funny.

BiowareMythic doesn't count as Mythic shouldn't be part of Bioware.

I'd just like to point something out to the common response "its only once a week and a couple of times they had to do something during the week".

Game launched on Dec 20th. There have been 20 patches since launch. Never have 2 been applied the same day. For us that can only play during patch hours that means in 44 days this game has been unavailable to us about 45% of the time.

In other words no, its not once a week, its 3 out of 7 days. Love paying for things i cant use half the time... feels good.
Cheers!
