    It typically is about 6am in whatever is its primary time zone, I believe. I know my shard usually comes down for about 15 minutes around 6:15-ish.

    But this ain't regular maintenance.

    This is a login server issue, not a shard server downtime.
    At least the client doesn't 'black hole' like it used to long ago

    I believe (don't quote me) it's just the log-in server maintenance. Its usually on Tuesdays around this time, but I wouldn't be surprised if things got moved around or changed. :)

    Wait about 30-45 mins (8:30am EST at the latest) before we cause an uproar!

    (Either that or the janitor unplugged the log in server again to plug in his vac cleaner :lol: )

    This is normal play time for me and I've never seen this happen regularly on tuesdays so... it's just a downtime.

    We'll probably have to wait until after the VA crew has had their morning coffee and then taken the time to read these boards, LOL.

    We did once go a whole weekend with the dev team thinking they turned on an event on Friday and not catching it until Tuesday (true story).

    You know what I miss?

    The days when shard(s) were down and they actually would, you know, put on the main page they were aware of the issue and working on it. *sigh*

    There might be a 'Problem Communicating With Origin' but I'm more concerned anymore that there are ALSO 'communication problems with Bioware-Mythic' (or whatever it is the are calling themselves this week, lol).

    It is in VA, so yes, working a typical office day they should be around. Not that such a thing means they are, you know, aware.

    Like I said before (not that I think it'll last thing long, of course, LOL): at the end of the 2008 Magincia Arc, there was supposed to be an event turned on for the weekend. Well, they forgot, and no one even bothered to read the forums and notice until TUESDAY. And no, this was not over a holiday, which means the entire office was oblivious the entire first day back from work nothing was going on.

    To me, that screams there is a problem communicating somewhere. Just as I'd like a 'heads up' that shard(s) are down, like they used to do years ago. Just as they had 'In Concept' and 'In Development' so that, yes, you know they were working on SOMEthing and had some insight where they were taking the game.

    Some of the old timers may remember a time when the shards/servers went down every 10 mintue or so and sometimes reset until the day before...

    Everyone just take a deep breath it will be back soon, But I aplogize for making the servers crash , I recently hired a friend to clean up my 2 castles and I believe that put the hamsters into shock:stretcher:
