    This is pretty much my stress over the servers being down because i expected to do some fun stuff today THREAD.

    Seems like they basically just rolled out a update that was borked from the start.

    I wonder what the big issue was that caused such urgency.

    It couldn't possibly be a patch to stop the onslaught of Gamma Quadrant Neko Borgs from invading Alpha/Beta space, could it?!:lmao:

    Is this sort of downtime normal?

    I can't imagine they did not know of this before the update.

    After the last update we were getting odd disconnects, often, and server no response timer, etc.. So surely they simply carried bad code into the update which may have exacerbated the pre-existing issue.

    I'm in the wrong profession. I should been a PROFESSIONAL PROBLEM SOLVER.

    Usually after any new content its safe to say up to 3-4 hours is rather normal in addition to the promised downtime. But with a new season, these usually are a one time thing...*cough* waiting next weeks maintenance already.

    this is a major update. we normally only see an update of this magnitude every 4-6 months or so.
    i dont think i have ever seen one go smoothly.

    4+ hours to identify a "possible cause" of the problem. HAHAHA!!!!

    Seriously. That is a major freaking oopsie-daisy. Update the game and have no clue what broke.....

    Maybe it is time they put up a *permanent* test server with new content and some ZENcentive for people to log in and load / function test it 72hrs before they drop it on Holodeck.

    This is so absurd. When i see all the poor grammar, mis-spelled words, and weird silly bugs and glitches all over..It makes me think a very unprofessional group of people are playing with uncommented code they got off Github titled: "Awesome_MMO.gzip"

    Update: We're looking into what we believe to be the cause. Once we confirm, we'll update you again.
    ----------------------

    Edit: Now it is a "couple of possibilities". Hahahaha!

    i can see it now... Somewhere in Shangzhou Province, on the 28th floor of a skyscraper a bunch of PerfectWorld code-munkies are gathered in a circle playing "Rock - Paper - Scissors" to decide whose "fix" they are going to go with to get the servers up.:cry:

    Bri, none of the original developers of the game still work there. PWE fired them all. So no one there knows all the code, where the duct tape and caulk is ect. At least when the Cryptic originals were there they sort of knew what not to push lol

    Do you watch, "The Strain"?

    I don't know of Wayward Pines nor Extant - I will look them up now.

    I just downloaded episodes 1-4 so i could watch them. Also made a cocktail. Speaking of cocktails..

    WHERE THE HELL IS CLANCY.

    I *may* grab Extant to watch..

    I have a bit of a thing against 2-Hit&Run-Halle, and any people who "hit & run"

    Why would they fire all the original devs & coders?

    Wow that was so not smart.

    I strongly suspect they already knew this bug existed and expected the behavior that was reported after the update was finished earlier and simply was hoping it did not get worse. Which it did.

    We've isolated the issue and have a fix that appears functional. We'll be doing one more round of testing.
