    I meant more 12 hours or so notice compared to planned mainenance that you can predict a year from now. I should add devtracker to my favourites though.

    I didn't say it was a personal vendetta, I'm just saying that in light of a total dearth of information regarding any kind of emergency fix they're just making themselves look inept and pissing people off. It takes less than ten seconds to punch out "Hey guys, we found a really ugly exploit that needs to be fixed ASAP, sorry about the downtime." At that point, the number of angry people shrinks by several orders of magnitude.

    EDIT: Oh good, it's been extended.

    If I wasn't so annoyed by it, I would probably find it very comical.

    Extended.

    Only problem is, with Bioware's track record so far with patches and "fixes" they end up breaking more shit than they fix. Seriously, I've been more frustrated AFTER a patch or fix than I was before it. And no, it's not because I was exploiting something and they took it away from me. It's because something that was working perfectly fine is now broken ON TOP OF the fact that what they tried to fix is STILL broken anyway. And the fact that they more often than not cut their down times short, and then have to have MORE down times in order to fix the shit they should have fixed the first time. Add all of this to the fact that they brought down servers on a FRIDAY night (when a lot of people stay up late to play games) instead of just waiting a few more days until the scheduled maintenance time. And when they bring servers down, multiple nights in a row, during my play time (I work evenings and sleep during the morning and early afternoon), I get little opportunity to play some weeks. And I call BS when people say that 2 AM isn't peak time. I've seen just as many, if not more people on at 2 AM as what I did at 3PM, 6PM, 9PM, etc, etc.

    Yes, I know this is an MMO and MMO's have these kinds of problems. But come on...it's 2012. Some of this shit should not still be taking place. At least not at the levels that it currently is.

    @SWTOR We'll be extending the #SWTOR maintenance, no current ETA. We will let you know when the servers are live. Thank you for your patience.

    It's like they are trying really hard to demonstrate how having EU and US maintenance at the same time is a terrible idea.

    Funny how their forums are pretty much always offline or in read only mode when maintenance is happening.

    That's hardly what I mean, they missed so many things that other games have gone through. Item duping, PvE and PvP exploits, billed customers multiple times first month, engine is completey unoptimized, server populations are heavily Empire, very little end game...

    I don't think BW avoided a single problem, every MMO for the last 10 years has expirenced. It's all fixable now, but at the game's peril.

    Regardless of their reason they could have handled this entire situation better. My friend likes to refer to this entire game as a beta still, saying we all just bought this game in its beta with all the bugs it has :|

    To be honest when people say the game is still in beta it just makes them sound like a whiny child. However when Bioware chooses to run maintenance seems less than desirable.

    -Operations will no longer allow more than 16 Operations Group members to enter concurrently.

    -In Karagga’s Palace, G4-B3 Heavy Fabricator will no longer respawn more than once if players have not defeated Karagga.

    -Fixed an exploit that would allow players to repeatedly loot the chest after defeating Jarg and Sorno in Karagga’s Palace.

    -Fixed an issue that could cause graphical inconsistencies, which most often manifested as random screen "flickering."
    It is all about that chest which was being farmed and farmed and farmed and farmed

    You need to decide, do you want them to leave exploits in for long periods of time; as in they become general knowledge; or is it better to fix them fast.

    They had the split stack bug for so long it was hilarious how many people had over a million credits, worse they let them keep them.

    How hard can it be to disable one chest or lock that zone out or disable looting that chest etc. I'd rather see that single boss/chest disabled and let the few thousand people affected by that wait until Tuesday than see the entire playerbase prevented from playing, especially during all Aussie and most EU players peak times.

    Retarded. Regardless of how important it was for them to patch and fix these so called "issues" right now, it is beyond stupid that they chose to do it on friday night and now into saturday morning. It's the weekend. You know...when people are off work and school and want to play video games. I HIGHLY doubt that these "issues" couldn't have waited till tuesday to be addressed. Another strike against Bioware in my book.
