I haven't made any, but I have played enough of them to know that weekend maintenance generally makes players very unhappy. I was expecting the servers to be taken down on Friday in order to avoid annoying the weekend players, but that obviously didn't happen
As much as I welcome that you're working on the game, I'd still prefer if you did so during the week and not on the weekends.
As for playing, I guess that's it for me, this weekend. I got exactly two hours that I could have played. Now, it's down to one and I don't think I*'ll bother logging in for just one hour. Makes no sense.
(Note: If the down-time is due to a server crash or server problems - in other words, something that needs immediate dealing with - then disregard my comments. However, if it isn't absolutely urgent, I'm wondering why it couldn't have waited till Monday ...)
most MMOs have regularly schedualed downtime where they restart servers , apply minor updates to server side software and basicly do little tidying . have you tried leaving your pc on for a week without reboot and see how well it runs ?
best not to whine too much about server downtime ... its a result of playing MMO`s . and glitches do occur during maintance ... the bit that should be focused on is .. they fixed it didnt they ... try playing second life where they have problems that have existed since beta and its comming on to what almost a decade
