Weekly server maintenance EU times?

Their whole maintenance process was probably built around the fact that all servers are offline at the same time and that there is only one valid version of the client and the server at the same time (so there can be no version conflicts).

I think in another company offering services in Europe, disabling its service at mid day and it make me laugh.
And the worst of all it's that BW is selling it to us like a favor to us.

I don't know what kind of drug are smoking in Austin, but It's high quality for sure.

A certain group of users from a certain particular country not having any consideration for others? What a shocker.

(I can't name that country as they get upset and complain)

Well then they need to realise they made a mistake and rectify it.

Yeah, I'm paying for a game that is apparently still in beta testing, and I can't even play it during daytime. Nice.

They could atleast give some free days or something to compensate.

Good to see someone try to use logic and not be hateful, thank you


Now one small thing to consider: Trion (Rift) have worked around this issue and found a way to have 2 seperate M times and still allow players to play both EU and USA servers or both if they choose to. So I am sure BW has devs who are equally smart and could also do the same should they decide to be a real global company.
Does anyone even read these?

Logic is; That I'm paying for something. Something that I don't have or get to use?

How's that a logical?

You know what it is.
Back in the days the Eu customer service and patching was horrible.
In fact quite some times there was no Eu service.

Blizzard is a good example of a company that raised the bar and showed that it's possible to give the Eu player base the same quality service as the US.
How did it paid off well, WOW has more subs in the Eu than in the US.


So what does Ea/BW do?
They put the servers in a horrible location and go back to the stone age.
That's why Blizzard remains a better company.
Stephen Reid - 9:02a.m. - January 11th 2012 - because in reality, there was never supposed to be a 'Medium' choice - that was a bug.
