So... you did Maintainance on Tuesday instead of Thursday, hoping to avoid having downtime on Thursday, only to have to do Emergency Unscheduled Maintainance on Thursday anyway?

I'm reminded of an old saying about "If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans"...

Like many of us, I'm sure, I am becoming increasingly concerned about the hardwares ability to cope with the predictable surge in connections on LoR day.

The many outages we've experienced lately, both scheduled and unscheduled, do not inspire confidence.

However, I'd be far more sanguine if Branflakes was able to stop dancing around the issue and speak plainly.

It seems to me that Cryptic made an error recently when they launched NW and did not predict that the increased traffic would overload their systems.

There has been no real acknowledgement, or even outright denial, of that.

If these recent maintainances are designed to massively upgrade the capacity of the hardware in preparation of LoR day, then come right out and say it. Be specific, not vague.

A comparison of how much traffic the hardware can bear after these maintainances, as opposed to how much the server was able to bear on the 3 year anniversary launch would be instructive.

We know that on the 3 year anniversary, hardware was unable to cope with the demand and massive queues resulted.

Telling us precisely how much better the hardware will be, compared to that day, would go a long way to calming peoples fears for LoR day.

Yeah it's bad timing but here something you need to know as well: Life isn't fair. This isn't Buger King, you don't get it your way. If you don't like what's going on then quit the game.
While thats all well and good Ive got a sneaky feeling that this has something to do with neverwinter, seems funny they have a regular 1 1/2 hour maintenance then suddenly
not 30 mins after its done they have to take all cryptic games down for a so called
"emergency maintenance" just all seems a little fishey to me........

That is very smart of you. Downtime is downtime. Scheduled or not.

Will this fix the issue with people not being able to join fleets as well?
