They were down for the maintenance like usual, but as soon as the servers came back up, so did the forums.  That is when all the drama began and now they are viewable, but you can't post anything to them.

 

Good Times!  Too bad too, the game was ok'ish, but this kind of stuff just isn't a good sign.

    Heh why people expect any company to run 24/7 365 with no issues is just not going to happen.

    And a new company with a new game, and new equipment and ISP and all?  Been a miracle so far with the few down times:)

     

    WOW and CCP both long term companies with massive exp on running games has more down times than i have seen for SWTOR so far:)

    Love em or hate em, can not really bash them for how the game launched and has ran so far from my perspective. Seems they are doing better than average if you are really honest on how hard it is to run something as huge as a MMO.

    so EA in all of their money and glory are unable to have forums that can withstand the load of EU,AU, and a little of the early morning US players?

    because I was on them right when the forums reopenned for posting and general EXPLODED with anger threads and the site was fine and dandy

    Theres a huge drop off NO isues to what we have seen with this game though.

    And a new company with a new game

    Eh? New company?

    This is EAa nd Bioware pulling from the combined experience of Mythic and others.

    New?

    I despise the MMO community forums so much.

    Too much PASSION.

    The game isn't worth raging over. The patch isn't worth raging over.

    Yeah, but it's misplaced passion. It's like people open up their Veins and let their Id spill out.

    It's not passion. That's giving it far too much credit.

    True enough however once you go down that road you eventually reach one other inevitable conclusion. I'm glad I came to it before the 20th of this month.

    No, they are not raging at the patch really.  More at the down time, and then them locking the forum from posting to avoid it either being clogged up with rage posts or crashing completely.

    Yes new, new servers, new ISP, New game that they just built from scratch.. that defines new to me:P

     

    You said new comapny though, and they are not. They are an established well funded corperation drawing on the experience of BW, EA, and Mythic, at the least.

    What you say, and the reasons you suggest to give them slack, do not wash with me, sorry.

    Yea new game from scratch, lmao... No it was not made from scratch, they used someone's elses engine. But this is off-topic and has nothing to do with the heavy moderation being done by BW. There's a big thread on the official forums about it as well, my post was removed twice for only commenting on how strict their moderation is with no bashing or insulting mentioned in my post. Goes to show how open they are to player discusion and suggestions.

    Raging about server downtime is the funniest thing to me. Welcome to every MMO ever made. Are these people serious?

    Thus was a gamebreaking issue for many. The emergency patch was warranted.

    Insanity over there on the official forums. It's really saying something when I think that these forums provide better discussion and community than theirs. I can't even stand to look at the official forums except for stickies from Bioware.

    These people, they set themselves up expecting the impossible and the. Flip out when they don't get it. Give me a break.

    2 large downtimes in 1 week warrant abit of rage I think. especially when they could of waited 3 days for the regular maintenance.

        Actually, as one of the people getting booted regularly, I am glad they did not wait.  Now granted, you didn't see me going on the forums and complaining about it in every single thread I could find, but it was annoying.  Maybe more people raging over the downtime need to just grow up a little and learn to relax.  Maybe read a book or walk around outside in the fresh air.  It would do them some good.

    I really don't understand the rage towards Bioware.  I cancelled my sub and peruse these and the official forums waiting for them to get their act together.  They have a solid foundation but released about 6 months too early and had poor prioritization.
