So I'm not complaining about the servers coming down alot, as this is a game in beta and all. That said, I really wish they'd stop this "Server will be down for one hour" stuff. I'd prefer that they assume it's going to take two or three hours, and if it takes less it's a nice surprise.
Either way, I like seeing regular downtime, it's re-assurance that they are actively fixing stuff.
My in-game warning worked as well. Good job with the pop-up windows that need to be closed to make them go away. Thanks for the advanced warning.
Yes! I liked the pop up warning.
At first I was wha...? then I saw it was the server going down again message. I often miss the system message that flies by onscreen, but not pop ups. That worked great. And I had time to finish my transaction and go log out.
Thanks for the warning! I got the admin warning 5 minutes before shut down this time and was able to finish up a mission objective. I have to say, every time we have one of these downtimes I'm sad that I can't play but I know that my experience will be that much better on the other side because we've got great devs working on it!
