I guess I am in the minority though, I don't care if they bring the servers down during Aus prime time as the game is there no matter what happens. I mean you don't get to play tonight, come back next week. Or tomorrow. Go out and enjoy the night. Or read a book. I don't know.

I don't get all the hoopla every time they do this.

Yes i agree the rubber banding effect is a pain in the bum BUT who's to say they are fixing this issue. Just look at the past few patch notes and some of them are things that can wait till the Tuesday maintenance time slot.

I get home from work just as the system is going down so I'm not at all happy they are doing yet more maintenance--why weren't the servers restarted on Tuesday as part of the regular service window...?? In any case, it's only 2 hours, and hopefully less, which means I can reinstall winblows on my other box

can u guys really work on not taking servers off line 2-3 times a week. i know the hours u do are due to least amount of volume but im sure im not the only one. I work second shift and my prime time to play is 1-5 am est and u guys taking servers down at 3 am est tells me why log in when servers drop in 1 1/2 hours. can you guys please try to get more done on tuesdays so we dont have servers going down so often.

I do want to thank you guys for the hard work that is being done but this is a bit of a turn of to those who may be less patient than I and in return help with a better view toward the game over all.

a caring player

P.S. for pointing me here

I enjoy playing this game, but I have a life outside of the game. I mostly work nights so I am not on much. Yet when ever I do have a chance to be on. I end up having to cut my game short because of the random server maintenance. I can understand a few quick fixes and a fix a week, all MMO's have those issues. Yet I am playing this game. Why, because I have always been a huge Star Wars fan. I enjoy the stories. I am slightly annoyed at the fact that every time I am on and I just get into the game there is a maintenance issue. I apologize for my agitation but, as a gamer who has played just about every MMO there is out there. I have to say if I'm paying for a game and loosing servers and having 75 ms lag. Then having issues with respawns along with some boss battles like the glitch that was on the black talon flashpoint.
I understand that these issues need to be handled yet these issues have been going on since the game came out. Then there is the server lock and transfers. I just don't know what to do when I am told/ forced to leave my home server Ajunta Pall, the only PVP RP west coast server. Loosing the west coast sever hurt a lot. Considering many of the people on that sever where friends of mine that joined after the fall of CoH (City of Heroes) Now we are all dust in the wind so to speak. Now more than half the servers are locked.
Then there is the heavy load for Begeren Colony. Which is now my new home server.

I can wait for the servers to be fixed and all I would just like to play the game, considering I am paying for it. I support the tech people completely. Its just that having multiple days a week when the servers go down is kinda sad. It hurts the gamers and keeps us from doing what we want to do. We may be in a flashpoint, Warszone or even an operation. When we get the 15 min. warning. Which holds us back as gamers. So please, please. I beg you admins and tech people. Fix the issues so that I and others like me can enjoy your game. That many of us have waited 9 years for. Please, regulate the server fixes.

Especially since we had maintenance on the 10th, then scheduled maintenance on the 12th, and then again today on the 13th?
Pain is life, and life is pain. May the true Sith prevail.

That is the worst is not. Every time BW "fix" something, they break 2 other things. When was the last time we only had 1 maintenance day in a week. 2 days is becoming the norm....some recent weeks has been 3 days.

I'm all for "improving game experience", and accept that (if) today's maintenance was to fix the loader, it is warranted....however, there have been rediculous unscheduled maintenance to fix such game breaking bugs such as the incorrect version number displaying (I did not even know it was displayed anywhere!)

To me it just seems BW are inept at patching, most of the unscheduled maintenance days are certainly not for game breaking bug....and even then, almost 100% of unscheduled maintenance is to fix something that was broken by the last patch.

Couple that with the annoying fact they take the forums down every patch as well, just to stop the QQ...and you have a game that cencors you, and just generally does a poor job. (and to the fanbois out there...there have been occasions (twice I think) where the forums have stayed up during maintenance, so do not try and make crap excuses for BW about forum and game servers being linked)

I have no problem with the once a week scheduled maintenance, having experienced this in many MMO's over the last 12yrs. Yet the continual unscheduled maintence almost 2 weeks after the major patch is the problem. One can be expected but we're up to 3 or 4 that I know of and i'm willing to bet on another.

How about you thank the majority of EU and Oceanic players for paying for your "bug-free" experience, they're the ones paying for the frequent unscheduled server down time.
