    Hey UO. How about giving all of us on Chessie free character transfer tokens for the characters we have here so we can move them to a shard that fails a lot less often.

    This being unable to play a game I'm paying for is getting tiresome.

    At least this time the "server going down in 2 minutes" message preceeded the down time, so maybe they've identified and are fixing the problem. And I incorrectly assumed it was all the shards and the Christmas publish!

    Actually I've started characters on Atlantic & Legends to play during Chessies crashes. Started during crashes of course. :rant2:

    Problem is, I really don't care to rebuild all the characters and replace all the stuff I have on Chessie. I did come real close to a move to Atlantic a few months back but moving twelve characters would be a tad expensive.

    If this inability to play keeps popping up as often as it does, I may wander back to Gemstone for a year and then wander back to see if EA has Chessie fixed. I've got close to 15 years experience with Gemstone and it's not been there to play maybe a half dozen times over that period of time and normally those were pre-announced required service times.

    EA posted a notice on the shutdown while I was doing the last one. After the fact, but it's an improvement in service.:thumbup:

    No such luck, never so much as a "sorry" on dear ole Chessie. Somebody else once did receive something, forgot whom and what :)

    You don't seem to undersand. Chessy has been having issues on an almost daily basis for .. oh.. hmmm.. 12 years now? If it crashing doesn't kill you then the lag will!

    We can't seem to get anyone at ea/mythic to even acknowledge there's an issue. This is one of those annoying little things that makes people want to stop paying and quit. And don't even think of suggesting transfering cause I'm not gonna pay $20 x 12 characters because of this and I think you'll find that's the general attitude.


    Now.. if they gave all of us on chessy free transfers and just shut the server down for good... I'd be at the head of the line.

    Chessy has not been having daily issues for 12 years.. I seriously don't know where people get these ideas from. All shards have issues from time to time. It happens.
