Did Anyone Get Presents After Server Up Today?

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Connor_Graham, Dec 17, 2008.

  1. I've checked multiple shards after server up today and nothing. Regine did say the presents would be given today, yet I'm not seeing anything. Does anyone else?

    Nope, not even on Europa or Oceania. Maybe they'll start showing up as each shard hits their next maintenance period. Or maybe all shards get Publish 57 today after a whopping one day stop on Origin to check for bugs. I'd say be prepared for a good one-hour down-time sometime midday today.
     
  7. Regine said they would be today, not next week. I've got plenty of patience, but when someone says something is going to happen and it doesn't at the expected time, that usually means something is wrong.

    Next time don't be so quick to troll, or at least try to resist the urge to. I know how hard that can be for you.

    My understanding was it was implied they would be active on Origin today.

    AKA the public live test shard.
     
  11. They didn't show up on Origin either.

    *puts GM runner shoes on*

    Well... I did say you would get them today assuming I didn't mess up...

    I did :blushing:

    So no gifts today. I just submitted the fix, it will only be available tomorrow when all other shards are published.

    Rotten tomatoes and rotten eggs are ok, please no stones and especially not in the eyes. :sad4:
     
  13. That where I was checking.

    Stop! Stop, will you?! Stop that! Stop it! Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Jehovah'.

    We got SNOW last night all over Sosaria, and I'm happy for that.

    We can wait another day, it just makes it that much more Special.

    * Gives Connor_Graham a Big Bear hug * Good to see you my Friend.

    Peace be with all of You

    Ooooh, I like that idea! Regine's punishment should be that she has to log onto test and let us all pelt her with snowballs!! Massive snowball fight on test center!
     
  24. *wonder if its possible someone could trip and unplug the servers today*

    Well at least we all get to see the Christmas tree they were talking about tomorrow and have Presents under it :) Happy Holidays to all!

    Why is it.....mr. op....when someone participates in a forum discussion, and comments in their own way, with their own beliefs....and you don't like what's said, you call it trolling.....weak sauce pal.

    I agree, christmas is a week away....chill. regardless of what what said.

    * Stands up and APPLAUDS *

    Darn right, Regine could have blamed it on anything and none of us would have known, nice to see people takiing ownership for things and not passing the Buck.

    * Gives Nine Dark Moonsd a Big Bear Hug and continues to keep Guard of Regine *

    Peace be with all of You

  30. Maybe because it WAS trolling.


    If I'd "chilled" it wouldn't have been brought to Regine's attention and she wouldn't have known there was a problem. Seems to be simple common sense there. If I'd waited until Christmas, as you and Rico seem to think I should have, then there wouldn't have been anyone at the office at EA to fix it, then nobody would have gotten anything for Christmas until after that long weekend, and there would have been pancakes and complaining for 4 days straight. This way it's no big deal and it's taken care of right away.

    So I guess it would be you that needs to "chill", regardless of when Christmas is, which date has nothing to do with the current subject at hand. Something in the programming didn't work, and it was brought to the attention of the person that needed to know it was broken. Over and done with.
     
  31. Good to see you as well Caeser. I hope you and yours have a great holiday season.
     
  32. Regine... which shard do you line on? And who did you say your character is? heh
