    Me either - was watching my screen for gains (figured I might as well train some skills while everyone was off playing in the abyss, heh) and just lost con.

    I only just jumped on to crank through some Imbuing gains, so I gather those are gone. I did a Big training session a few hours ago, hope I didn't lose those. :eek:

    *edit*

    We're back.. we lost less than 4 hours going by my skill.

    Less than two I think... I was working begging and lost about a whole point, but lost nothing to the fishing I was working before dinner.

    :wall:

    This is to be expected with expansion launches. So far this one has been much smoother than ML's, let alone some of the others. I would rather they get the bugs out of the way ASAP anyway.

    Wasn't that what the Beta was for? :wall:

    Yes but beta is on one shard with not nearly as many people playing it. Also what is to stop beta testers from not reporting bugs and once SA goes live using them to their own advantage?

    Now that people are actually seriously playing SA many more bugs will be found. It is unreasonable to expect there not to be bugs during the release. I think they have done a good job so far.

    If I had to guess I would say Retribution had more people than Oceania on it, even in closed beta.

    I must say, I'm enjoying my new invisible frenzied ostard..

    More than Oceania yes, but Oce is one of the smallest shards. Most of the shards would have way more than Retri did.

    ...and besides. Some of us had a ping of 1000+ to Retri during closed beta. I logged on it twice, could hardly move, and gave up. Partly my fault for having wireless broadband at the time, but even on my ADSL now I ping 500+ to TC1. They really should of started up a TC in Japan, it would of enabeled a lot more people to properly test it.

    Most of the stuff I beta tested was static sort of gameplay, but it was pretty laggy to move. I recently had worse lag on Oceania.. thankfully mostly cleared up!:thumbdown:

    I asked for a downunder server.. even one in Japan would have done. I understand a good proportion of players are in Japan.

    So.. these shard outages are because of fixes? Or because of bugs?
