U.S. server just went down again. No mention of an estimated amount of time.

2. You have the right to a opinion just as soon as I tell you what it is.
3. You have the right to die quietly or kicking and screaming. It doesn't really make a difference because you're dead either way.

    Yeah - I freaking JUST logged on and boom - server down? That's the 2nd time today.

    Not to sound pessimistic but this is reminding me of Defiance launch - yeah it was rough.

    Yeah - that's the point - 3 days, two unscheduled server outages.

    New game - yes, it's Zenimax first time doing this - yes. But it's affecting the entire US megaserver.

    Other games would do rolling shard updates - so it affects much smaller % of the players, as you would down a single or few shards at a time.

    But with one large server cluster when you bring the whole megaserver down you affect an entire US or EU playerbase - which is why it's reminding me of Defiance - as it has the same "megaserver" technology (server outages at launch there affected entire regional playerbases)

    So yes it might be a short update but it's for the ENTIRE US playerbase heh.

    I hope it's a short update, the first one was very fast!

    This has probably been the smoothest MMO launch I've been part of.  A small amount of downtime to fix a few bugs is completely reasonable at 2am.

    Loving the game so far.

    I said "AGAIN" because it is my understanding they were taken off line this morning also. If they weren't, then sorry for ruffling your feathers...

    I wasn't hating on ZoS, just posting this to let others know the server is down atm.

    They were taken offline this morning - both EU and US megaservers were down (and forums too due to getting overloaded)

    I was playing about 3hrs with my Khajit Nightblade Tues. morning when I was just about to search a cabinet and -poof- back to login screen with error I didn't have permission to be on that server..saw the maintenance memo & decided to log. Everything was smooth up to that and has been really good for me so far. You need to expect unscheduled repairs especially now since we're getting so close to Fridays official launch.

    Lol - yes - the updates have been fast, but again they have to be as when you bring the megaserver down, you're blocking the entire US or EU playerbase.

    I'd rather take the outages and have the game bugs fixed, that not and have a broken game - so no question there.

    You didn't play other MMO's much then?

    Yeah. The bad news are that there are still quest phasing bugs...

     

    The good news is that I've been able to get through them all by one or two re-logs into a different phase.

     

    All in all, compared to all the other launches I've been involved in, the down time (and I include queues in other games in that) as a % of total time has been stupendous.

    I am yet to run into a phased quest bug since the first maintenance from this morning - the rise of brothers quest (this one was just busted - not a single instance had working NPCs - confirmed on official forums) was fixed for me, and 3 other broken EP quests.

    /fingers crossed

    ESO - very fun when everything works, and SOOO frustrating when you do a long quest chain and then the last portion - the damn quest is broken.. GRRRRR!

    And then you play the "logout and log back in hoping to hit a working instance" game  - not exactly fun.

    Seen that lag bug again, on a few instances while instance hopping for mining.  I think they are probably fixing that right now.

    OK if everything is just a guess, I'd say they are fixing bugs (with a buggy release),  or cash-shop issues when buying the horse.

     

    The horse is important to some, so don't even try to pretend it isn't :P

    it's just launch, all these issues will get worked out.

    still a pretty good launch overall IMO

    Really? Hmm I haven't seen that one at all - maybe it's something that started creeping up again tonight - havent gotten on tonight until a minute before the server maintenance :/

    No, not fun at all. I agree. But then again having a work around is much better than the quests in other games that were just broken and couldn't be done at all until ether a patch or a full server restart (as in the broken things in GW2.)

    Same here.  I've also fallen through the world twice,  something thats never happened before.  One I had to die as a relog didn't fix it.  Also 'The Lady' shrine for armor buff needed three logouts for two characters before it would work.
