I am very frustrated by one very annoying aspect atm of this game it seems that we have almost daily maintenance and I am wondering why must they do daily maintenance on the game like this I have never seen an mmo off line this much I pay my subscription to the game I want to play it on a daily not sit and wait several hrs almost every day just to play at a time I am able to enjoy the game the most can any one please explain to my WHY this game is down soo much
If there are patches, I am fine with meowntenance. However, if it's a hardware meowntenance one day, the other day it's suftware meowntenance and then the third day it's a patch ... THAT is what brings me on the palm sometimes. A bit of wideblick and this wouldn't happen. Proper planning and one meowntenance could sum it up for all three days.
I hate to rbeak it to you, but there are several mmo's out there that do daily maintenance... DCUO is one of them. with a major change in the game like F2P is going to be, they are likely trying to get as much bug/hardware problems as they can now rather than wait till F2P day... DCUO was flooded when F2P hit, it's best to get rid of these kinds of annoyances early so they can go back to the weekly maintenance/patching.
plus with every season theres usually a lot of patching and maintenance afterwards.
They just released a bug-ridden version of the game that will eventually be used to lure new players once the game goes F2P, so of course it's down for maintenance a lot. Expect this to continue to happen until and after it goes F2P. They're probably integrating new hardware for their servers to prepare for the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of new users this game is going to get in a little over a month. Also, they're adding new features and killing bugs. As long as they keep improving the game, I don't mind a 2 hour downtime every other day.
Like Tenkari said, DCUO has been down a lot. Global Agenda was down even more when it went F2P. Sometimes it was down for half a day or better, not just 2 hours like this game has been.
