maintenance

Unread post by Cooker » Fri Sep 19, 2008 8:07 am

why does it seem mmos like to take their servers down to work on them during the day instad of in the middle of the night when there are most likely less people online. im not actually asking, just venting a bit while i wait for servers to come back up. on another note, already, warhammer is far exceeding my expectations. yesterday i discovered the bliss that is public quests, such a great feature. what are you enjoying the most? scenarios? sieges? PQs?

coz the ppl they pay to do maintenance would be paid more to work during the night than during the day

i wasnt actually asking ;p but one might think that with all the money these companies make, they could afford it . make alot of people happy, however, im sure there would be the night owls that would get pissed too. no win situation.

I like to log on aand alternate between scenarios and PQs with the occaional field trip to the city or w/e while waiting for enough people to feel like going to go attack or defend a keep heh. This has been my night for the past 3 days at least and I'm having a lot of fun.

Because most gamers will be at work/school when it occurs. Closing the servers at that time minimizes the number of people who can not play. And it fits in with the standard 8-5 work day.

If they did it late at night, it would end up closing when the Oceanic people are on. Either way, you are going to shut down the servers when one group of people are on. Might as well let your workers have a regular shift.

Morale: get a job? :P

Sieges are the most fun I've had in an MMO since pre-BC WoW.

Edit: Possibly even since SWG cantina brawls.
