They have been terrible about communicating downtime since release, I don't know why people would expect them to get better.
The game has its own launcher. I dont care for having another application to tell me if the game will run.
If they only want to inform people via twitter then they should make it that the launcher and their forums have a twitter updates showing on them, not that WE have to go check twitter to see what will happening in the game several hours later from now.
Its like saying, the power company will put on twitter that they will have power shutdown in your town and its your job to somehow know that, and check twitter before, to know that your power is out in 6 hours.
I love it. All EU-players get a 'deal with it' comment everytime they loose a day for maintenance. Now it affects US-players also and look who's 'whining'.
Sorry I will just say: Deal with it!
Soz for that.
As for WOW is concerned, i didnt mention it did I? Actually i think you did.
Anyway, the point is that whatever anyone says you will defend BW without saying anything of a valid point. Read my post again, you will see i stressed a few points people are upset about on that , but all you got from a whole post was the word "fanboys" and added yourself the word WOW to make a post reply flaming me
gj indeed you and BW
The problem is, most people click the "Play" button too quickly and miss it. But, it IS there.
If you started playing eight straight hours before the notification, that's why they have the other resources.
Uhhh... I logged on like 1 hour before the server suddenly said "OMG I DIE IN 15 MINUTES!". I always check too, because I know they usually announce it there.
Edit: As I said above, I'd prefer if they used my personal info and sent me a text message. I'm not going to make a twitter account. Ever.
Anyone found anything to download yet? 2hrs in and nothing, the material to d/load is usually ready in the first 30 mins..... be pretty mad if they take it down on saturday night from 7pm (aussie) and then don't actually do any patching.
The way you worded your first response was that coding takes alot longer now than 7 years ago, that's true but also technology as moved along, they wont be using the same shit Blizzard was using 9 years ago when WoW was in development so I dont get why people are trying to compare a ''next gen'' mmo having troubles with a games that was released over 7 years ago its a poor excuse.
Take a look at Rift, they never had anywhere near these type of problems and even release content 2+ faster than wow you dont see them making excuses, not bad for a unheard studio with a lower budget than Bioware and EA threw at TOR, people like you just wont take any criticism of the game and use the ''well wow was like this on launch'' excuse, pretty pathetic tbh.

Are you serious? Its down untill 1pm, unless it gets an extension. On a SATERDAY, how is that "my so called primetime". Its everyones primetime who doesnt have a weekend job! I dont know about you, but i get up 9, maybe 9:30, in the weekend. Thats already sleeping late for just about anyone who has a job.
And you seem to be rather forgetfull because this seems to happen alot, namely EVERY. SINGLE. DOWNTIME. They should seperate the downtimes so we can all have a maintence schedules at hours that fit much better.
Edit: Rift failed because it was boring as piss and it was a straight out-and-out clone. Not because they put out too much content. Get real. I commend them on their launch though, I thought that was to be expected these days but SW:TOR changed all that.
btw rift did not fail has still 1 mill subs and is pumping out quality content fast.
while instead there havent been any official announcements about swtor subs after the start... maybe because they took a nosedive?
Nothing like server downtime on a saturday (EU)
And then there's no word on what they're actually fixing.... But I guess that means if they fail at fixing it, they won't have to defend it.
"We have decided to remove Rogues from the game, think of it as permanent stealth. Passive ability. Very iconic."
"Changes made to fit class fantasy" sounds a bit like SWG NGE to me. "More iconic classes" Worked out so well for SOE.
