    Any news on this? Will there be a revert associated with it this time?

    Just posted on the Herald, being taken down to fix the 6th char deal. No mention of how long a revert, but would imagine there will be one. Would be shocked if not.

    I'm going to be more than miffed if there is ANOTHER revert. Seriously Cal, can you get your team of "developers" to do something correctly? This is past ridiculous.

    I second that, we got bounced on Origin all the way back to yesterday morning!
    That's a whole lot of work out the window on that shard. :thumbdown:

    Whatever happened to people assuming that there would be problems after a big patch or change and not doing anything significant until things shook themselves out?

    I lost the same tower a few times during one of LS's really bad times.

    This was back when towers actually meant something. Like, back when people would pay several hundred dollars for just a tower.

    Does anyone know when peak time for players ingame?

    I would think that weekends would be the most occupied. To do things like this when most people would be playing just is not right.

    I know I only get to play on the weekends, and to me this was a waste of my time.

    In fairness to them, the plan was for them to do this all Thursday but that Murphy dude always seems to creep up....

    in all real fairness they should have waited until monday to make this change live and then they wouldnt have had to rush things just to fix bugs later.

    If it's true that half of UO players are Japanese, then when you factor in European players, evenings in the US are probably not the overall peak times for UO, especially when you scatter American players over four time zones (Hawaii and Alaska don't count :)). Plus this migration was also for Camelot and Warhammer, and they have quite a few Europeans playing as well.

    It doesn't matter though, because I think they managed to hit the peak times for everybody :gee:

    back when UO was fun?

    I rem Daily reverts (or seemed so, on LS)

    Some of the old timers on Atlantic probably remembered the LS daily crashes and reverts as well, since we started using Atlantic WBB as our base when LS would crash or revert :)

    Funny how when so many of us started logging in to Atlantic and heading towards WBB and lagging it, we started getting a lot more attention on the official forums and started hearing more devs talk to us.

    I didn't do anything that significant. Just didn't want to water the same big batch of cross-pollinated plants a third time today. Or go out and tame another set of beetles and swamp dragons to put on a pet vendor. Although maybe the second time around I wouldn't end up losing part of my suit to kleptomaniac Siege monsters.... What the heck they want with a dress and half apron is beyond me.
