    Well, with the release of a big patch today that includes a new land and other various major tweaks, I'll take a bit of downtime. I don't recall ever getting major patch changes like this in UO without a few DAYS of downtime while they tried sorting it all out.

    Only recently have they gone back to the long downtimes. Fora while it was a brief 15 minute window on Tuesdays. Normally when there is a major patch upcoming, the servers are down longer for a few weeks before and after then it goes back to short maintenance windows.

    Unfortunately, I've noticed an increase in server problems (crashing etc) in the last 8 weeks...normally right in the middle of a fight hehe

    I played UO for 9 years and i dont recall major changes taking the game down for a few DAYS as you claim.

    I think WoW has more down time then UO really. And yes i also miss Recalls and houses. How ever at least for the most part when UO had trouble they gave out in game gifts like all the AoS crap.

    Wow having 8 hour down time is kinda lame but *shrugs* i lived through 9 years of UO and will live through wows downtimes.

    Were you around for AOS? The servers didn't stay up for more than a few hours and often times reverted majorly.

    AOS the servers were actually down for a day and a half (thinking two) then with all the errors it was up and down for close to two weeks.

    yes i played when they brought out Trammie eye candy with AoS still dont recall the shards being down that long but then again i did have my times of being gone for a week or two around the AoS lunch.

    Not sure which Exp was worse AoS which totally turned the game into an item base game vs skill or SE which allowed for super gimp pvp temps.

    AOS.

    SE wouldn't have been bad if it wasn't an item based game.

    When they introduced housing in Tram I wasn't able to login for nearly a week.

    BTW, when WoW has trouble, they give away free play time.

    EDIT: also in the years I played UO we never got anything at all for downtime. I quit after pub16.

    Yar. PotBS gave away 2x XP books and other stuff for their downtime last week. Very nice.

    I was there for the Tram housing thing and I didn't have *that* much problem getting in. A week?? Did you try once and give up each time immediately? [​IMG]

    I kept at it and placed a tower which I sold later when I quit for $800... Patience pays lol.

    Once again the realm I play is down. This time they are working on the 3rd delay of getting them up so we can play again. OMG! I still play UO as well and I have to say, this game has been down more since I started 6 er 7 weeks ago then UO has been in the last 2 years.

    I know they had some problems this weekend. It happens from time to time, but I think that's true for all MMOs. Take a look at any of the major ones out there and they have sporadic downtimes due to screwed up routers, servers, etc.

    Welp they just updated again! Now its gonna be 4PM EST before we MIGHT get to play! Sporatic is one thing but every week is something totally on the other end of the spectrum and this is or has been pretty much an every week ordeal.
