    Final maintenence before launch.  It was announced a while ago.  

    What he said.

    I played for a few hours today, got tired, so decided to take a nap. Just woke up and noticed server downtime. Thought to myself, hmm. Guess I'll take a shower, get dressed and go watch Sherlock Holmes. Since I thought I wouldn't get a chance to see it till Janurary. Movie is a lil over 2 hours, so figure I'd come home and only have about 30 minutes before official launch. Just enough time to take the dog out for a run.

    Downtimes are our friends. They give us the chance to get back to reality during these MMO launch hard times. I don't know why everyones so pissed. Its not like only YOUR server is down. Just relax, take a break, do something else and come back to having no life like me for the next 2 weeks.

    The downtime was expected but what is becoming inceasingly annoying is their habit of always bringing down the website at the same time as the game.

     

     Even their tweeter announcement links to a page on their site where the details apparently are... that can't be accessed image

    For me it's the perfect time to catch-up on my laundry, decorate the tree and drink rum and egg nog....lots of rum and egg nog.

    Yes downtime is a bummer - however it seems like the perfect night to shower my wife with attention, something I've sadly been negelecting since EGA =)  when I found out servers were down I got a little wine, MNF about to start. No worries here.

    I agree.  That is why I married a French-Canadian!

    I was hoping to play some more tonight as well, but you have to consider they are preparing for release.

     

    We played a few days for free, so I am alright with this.

    Yes...free, right.

    I'm guessing that $5.00 preorder fee went to charity :).

    This is the millionth time I ve said this. The $5 is in the total cost, it s not $5 plus $59.99 for  a standard edition. You get charged $5, then $54.99. Why does everyone think it s $5 extra dollars to pre order. lol.

    Let's stay on topic and stop the baiting. Thanks!

    Honestly everyone should have expected this.  They would obviously want to check their list, maybe check it twice before they get the flood of players.

    Concentrate on enjoying yourself, and not on why I shouldn't enjoy myself.

    Well, we can't say there was no warning (right there in the client login, and on the boards), or that it's not a good idea.

    If I had N thousands more customers arriving irregularly over the next few days, I'd certainly do everthing possible to make life stable for them.

    Yes, but they could have done it at a better time. It's not like the "Launch day" is going to get this huge flood of people. Everyone who has purchased the game is already playing.

    Er, no.  Some people are standing in line right at this moment, or tomorrow, to get their copy.  Others have one waiting under the Xmas tree.

    Ahh, was wondering what happened:) Came here and saw the flood of SWTOR posts.

     

    Have to play RL for a while:) Enjoy.

  • HamrtimeHamrtime o''fallon, MOPosts: 200Member

    All the gaming stores are opening at midnight to sell swtor. And yes, there are lines to purchase it. Lets hope that this maintenance period has something to do with upgrading their servers to allow more people on. If not, the ques are really gonna suck tomorrow.

    Nevermind, I think I understand.  The $5.00 is to reserve your copy of the game.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?
