I can cope with the server downtime in Australian prime time - although very annoying when I'd been looking forward ALL week to coming home and being able to relax and play SWTOR until late and not have to get up for work the next day!

What annoys me is the description as "scheduled" maintenance. This is UNSCHEDULED. "Scheduled" would imply some sort of advance notice to customers.

What are you talking about, then american players wouldn't get to play at times convenient to them.
lololol


But seriously, I agree with you. I'd prefer if they varied the time so sometimes it was when I was asleep or at work.

i live in the US i'm with the aussies on this one


if they can't bring the servers down in groups then something needs to be done about taking the servers down at the same time of day every time they come down
rotate the down time patch to patch (and no not at US prime time i'd hate to see the QQ treads)

some of these nerds we encounter need to get a bloody life.
the issue isnt the servers going down, the issue is the time they go down. i know why maintaince is done. I know why patches are done. I question the logic of taking servers down during prime playing time of a certain group of consumers (when a more appropriate time could have been worked out). I work full time I have a family, and do many other things. if I wish to invest some time into a product thats constantly not there in hours when it should be, why dont I have a right to be annoyed?

Im paying for it.

Im whining about time they do these things not the action itself. Was I not clear?

The scheduled maint is usually on a Tuesday - and clicking on the 'patch notes' redirects one to the post from Tuesday 3/20...not tonight. I don't have a problem with a schedule, but this UNscheduled patch is an annoyance. I just hope its back up earlier than projected....
I see your schwartz is as big as mine.

having less people in a nation doesnt mean they should be treated any differently. they both pay for a service, they both want it provided. there needs to be a well thought out compromise. thats all we want
