Yes, ALL US servers are up, while most of the EU PvP servers (the most populated, actually) are down. And it's not early morning here (as is in the US), it's in the middle of the afternoon.

Figures, as usual. I really do not understand why they commercialized this game outside their country.

Starting to wonder that myself. Asian-Pacific servers are also up...

Would you rather have them shut down all the servers rather than just the ones they're trying to fix?

Really wish BW would do seperate EU server patching so they can do our servers not in the afternoon while everyone is trying to go on.

I am sure somewhere the bioware execs are happily rubbing their hands together at how efficently they have yet again screwed over the europians....because it is completely illogical to think that there might be a problem loading the patch into the eu servers....

As this is and has been the norm since the very beginning why is:

A. Anyone suprised?
B. Actually taking the time to make a thread about this?

Fact - Most subscriptions come from the US. So in every single situation they will get priority. Better maintenance times, servers up and running quicker etc.
This will always be the case here.

For anyone who remembers UO many, many years ago - maintenance was run in those days at a "convenient" time for the local time zone. So it was 6:00am GMT when really tehre was nobody playing.

Meh. It happens.

Sure, it would have been nice to play this morning, but I had lots of other things to do too. Yes, it's a genuine shame when maintenance sees unexpected issues, but this is an online game and it's not an unusual thing to happen.

I'm not being an apologist here, especially as a UKer affected by this, but in the grand scheme of things, I can always play another game. Besides, I'd rather they take a bit more time now to ensure that the patch works properly rather than have to take it down on another day this week to fix unresolved issues.

I just hope that the patch really does fix all the issues the patch notes claim to fix, as we've had a lot of issues marked as fixed in the past that weren't actually fixed.
