    Greetings,

    Today at 1:00PM EST all shards will be brought offline for maintenance, additionally at this time we are working to improve stability and encourage players to jump on Test Center 1 to assist us in forcing it to crash. With the exception of Oceania, we anticipate all shards will be back online by 3:00PM EST. Oceania will be migrated back to Australia, this should resolve latency issues players in the Oceanic region have been experiencing.

    Furthermore, the following fix will be deployed during this maintenance:


    • We have fixed the issue with Scalis’s corpse disappearing.
    Thank you, and as always stay tuned to the Herald for updates during this and other future deployments!

    I suspect that's related to the stability they talk about. :thumbsup:

    this should help with the question


    and this needs really big letters:

    I really hope this works out in the best way for our Oceanian folks. And hopefully this will lead to having their guildmates and friends that quit, come back to be a part of that community once again.

    Congratulations to all my Mates from " Down Under" !

    I know you are all glad your server is coming back from it's walk about.

    Even though I am on the US east coast, I sometimes come down there to play in the early morning hours while the US shards are empty.

    Hours of downtime massive lag, great pc's with the game locking up for no reason. No word from any developers EVER about anything. What end of the year? What middle of January? What by the end of the week? Middle of the week? End of the week? Middle of February next? In game support is a joke 2.

    Good job... Thumbs up :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
    Great work Cal and crew.

    If, as they say, they are trying to get more people onto TC to force a crash, one way to encourage people to go there is to make it the onl available shard to be on, during primeplaying hours. Devious Devs they are!!!

    A good size one at that.

    *just for the conspiracy theory types*

    This patch is a program that cross references ip adresses of those that post negative comments on Stratics with those that actually log into UO. This is an attempt to ban you all not only on Stratics but also from the game entierly.



    *disclaimer*
    Yes, this is a joke... laugh a little, get the foil hat off your head and lighten up :D

    While the devs still have a lot of work to do, this was a great update in terms of actually answering some of the big issues players have been asking for. Hopefully the next few updates from them will continue along those lines. Great job.

    Oceana was a big issue. They have fixed it. Be grateful. :thumbsup:
     
  30. Joins frodo on initial response :thumbup:
    Adds a little native broccoli dance :danceb:

    Rates the chances of "success" : conditionally "fair"

    condition one: "recent latency problems" ... From the >move< ...
    (some number before the move ~60 >jumped to> ~180 some number after the move)
    Extremely likely, upon "migrating back" for latency to FALL dramatically ( ~180 returns to ~60)

    condition two: "original latency problems" (conditions prior to the "migration")
    meh!
    remains to be seen ... "tested" ... remains "unresolved".

    overall *shrugs*

    Well, I'm not saying it was everything that has been asked for, but the Oceania issue and Scalis issue were both questions people have been asking about on here, there have been active threads asking about them recently so that was where I was coming from on that.

    I'm a little surprised by how many people are taking this negatively.

    It's an inconvenience to lose the game for a little over 2 hours but for stability, or at least for them working on it?

    I find it hard to take it as a negative sign, save unless you take the existence of problems as a negative sign itself.

    And, surely, there are problems. But once their existence is established, how is it negative that they are working on them?

    Sorry Uriah, people defend them way to much sometimes, while everyone is getting shafted.

    Doesn't it seem like they think it's okay to take advantage of this community?

    Well I feel robbed .. say what ya want, whatever. It's a free country but I still pay 12 bucks more a month for a game that I could play for free and get better service.

    The developers need to pow wow, smoke some good **** & listen to good music right... & video tape so they remember and make the best shard they can freaking think of to give the game some life again.

    FWIW, they seem to have fixed the awful lag spikes on Sonoma that came up after the "hardware upgrade".

    It may just be me, I dunno...
