This is my first time playing a Cryptic game - but it's SO like SOE and the Everquest series so far. Hopefully they will be a bit more accurate with their times. Unlike SOE who couldn't understand timezones OR estimate how long a patch was really going to take.

Under promise and over deliver like Mr. Scott Always multiply your repair (patch) estimates by a factor if 4 to protect your repuation as a miricle worker!

Cyptic are really good for their patch times/ maintainance etc.

Comming from the City of Heroes games when then owned them all those years ago.

with PM (project management), we always add at minimum ~20%, sometimes 40% on top of any quotes or estimates... just to be safe and not go over budget. Should be standard practice with everything.

The main problem i think is that fx steam didnt list that the game wont be open till a specifc time, only the date!
So LOTS of people expected that it was as a unilaterel time standard GMT zone.. As did i untill i started browsing like mad searching for that error message..

It's also a pretty poor error message, "You are not allowed to log in at this time" implies an issue with me or my account only, rather than a maintenance period.
