Been here a long time. This ******** is nothing new. It's either online and barely working or offline. I remember when they ran out of server space at the end of beta/start of live. Had to order new servers that took 3 weeks to arrive. Tons of people cancelled because they had to wait in 3 hour queues to play 15 minutes before the servers crashed. Again, nothing has changed in 2 years.
I should have known this would happen. You see, every time I finally get something to work in game, the game crashes. I had finally gotten the foundry to let me purchase slots and thought "Yeah! FINALLY I can go make some missions!" But no, as soon as I hit the log in button to set up my DOffs before delving into the foundry...blamo! Game down.
Firstly, I appreciate that right at this moment, you guys have more important things to worry about than forum outrage and I'm thankful that someone is working on fixing it, on a weekend no less....but maintenance isn't scheduled if you didn't inform your users about it in advance.
What we have here is at best emergency maintenance, at worst an outright server crash. Please don't treat us like fools.
