Seriously folks, Get over it. They're fixing important things and making the game better.


And to any of you who dare say "They should refund this day, Rarrrghh!"

Here's a fun fact:

Most of you are playing off their FREE month that you got on the 25th. They don't owe you jack for today.

Keep going, Bioware. Doing awesome so far!

They may not be good at talking to the community, but they're very skilled at listening. Most things don't last weeks without getting fixed, which is why the downtime doesn't bother me. Because it wouldn't exist without a reason. For example, if this fixes the sound issues I've been having as of late I -really- don't mind a few hours of Xbox love.

If that was the case, they wouldn't be afraid of showing us the patchnotes.

I paid for today (I renew on the 30th) but no, i don't want a refund. I just want to be able to play my friday nights. Is that too much to ask?

the reason for some patchnotes not being available till after patches is that they are there to fix loop holes and exploits that have ppl making billions of creds and if they tell ppl about it before hand they can go and do it.... not always the case but it is part of it

I'm playing off my month that I got from buying the game after cutting my seven day trial short because I loved the game so much.

I loved it so much that I talked my roommate into buying it. Guess what happened after he bought it. Unscheduled maintenance.

It sucked for me when I accepted my trial and ten a few hours later maintenance was posted but it wasn't a big deal. However... I've only been playing for three days now and there's been two days of maintenance...

Am I really suppose to just drop my other game for this?

cant say Im upset that the servers are down, for another patch, Im more like anctiously waiting to see what they fixed, what they say have been fixed, but have not, and what new bugs are in the patch, but upset that the servers are down? naah

The servers are down. Theres no way to exploit anything now. they can at least give us the patch notes.
