    With the recent "downtime" of the GL server (Again) i was just wondering, what is your approximation of Game Time lost due to "emergency" publish's, log in server issues, unexplained downtimes etc.

    If we can keep it down to just this month and yes this is just an estimate but please think carefully and try to give as accurate a response as you can.

    I can't remember what time I've lost, But if you think about it percentage wise, Say your told UO will be up 99.8% of the time, Which is a really good number, Thats still 17 hours a year it will be down for maintenance or upgrades.

    I'm quite happy with the uptime for UO.

    I lost nearly half a day, one day after Stygian Abyss release. Europa Shard was unstable and down for around 10h...

    okay but this can happen, overall iam happy with the availibitly of uo no long downtime periods, also the publish are available faster now. :thumbup1:

    I have lived through the launch, t2a, Uo:R, 3rd dawn/LBR, and AOS. and to me UO hasn't run better than it has these last few years. No complaints.

    You should ask, how much fat did you not gain, sitting on your keister.
    Sorry, too many players looking super uber or super sexy.....when in real life, they can't get a seat on a plane.

    Too much UO is too unhealthy.

    Lots...log in servers have gone down probably 3times this month. Sometimes for short stints of 30mins or so...others alot longer.

    Entire shards have been taken down.

    All servers where taken down.

    In the last month there has been more downtime than i remember in my UO life!

    You must be pretty new.
     
  12. Are they doing reverts again? I used to lose tons of game time when they would revert the shard after a crash. I had gmed skills and found wonderous treasure and the worst of all harvested tons of resources only to have the shard reverted and all that time gone. At least if you are doing something fun then you still have the memories.

    Sleeping at night does that count towards my game time lost?
     
  14. I've lost 13 years of my life...only to see UO disintegrate into garbage.

    Sorry Rich, looks like you're the only one that's kept track of their down time. Might be time to take a hard look at the amount of time you play UO, no?

    Please, compared to the patchurdays of '97-'98 you have lost NOTHING.

    We used to lose multiple days a week, just to have what little time we could play reverted due to bad publishes. :stretcher:

    Spare us the indignation of a few missed hours for emergency publishes. When you can't play for a day or more then you can complain. :sad2:

    I started playing on LS back in 2000.

    I quickly found a new server because it was UNGODDAMNEDPLAYABLE 9/10 of the time.

    It is kinda sad to see that UO is changing for the worst to most people...I Wish i started back in '97 to see the REAL UO..But what can I say. I Love Ultima, and i started 2004...:hug:

    Funny. People who started 2003+ seem to still like it.

    I wonder what happened in 2003 that caused this divide OH RIGHT AOS

    Clearly most of you were not around in the early days of UO..... Imagine daily reverts, Unannounced down times, More bugs then I care to remember!

    The state of UO now compared to then is night and day different! Be happy that most of the downtime is limited to a few hours. Imagine gm'ing a skill 3-4 times(this is pre golem bashing when scores of players would spend hours on end at the bone wall) over the course of a week due to reverts and server crashes!

    I think our current UO team has done one hell of a job keeping things up and running! So cut them some slack, not everything can be fixed in 30 seconds and takes some time!
