    Tried reading the idoc thread but no new posts there in forever. I have heard that recently the IDOC timers have been off..can anybody confirm this? Is it still only taking about 7 hours from IDOC to collapse, or am I way off?

    Yep still 7 hours with the very rare one taking 8 hours. The timing that has been out is the fall time window which goes back however long the shards go down for publishes and breakdown.

  8. do they go IDOC before server up or after server up?
  9. Depends.

    If its the "normal" way, it will go IDOC after server up, averaging about an hour-ish from server up to actually go "IDOC" then begin the anywhere from 6 hr 53 minute to 8-ish hour timer for the "poof".

    If it was set in motion by a player cancelling account, I have seen them go IDOC before server down, and was still IDOC after server up for several more hours before the "poof".

    Now, if they take server down for any reason, it will throw off the timer. Sometimes its weird cause they take it down for like 30 mins, yet the house falling may take hours more to happen.

    Yesterday, on atlantic, the house status updated in Fel, yet in Tramms it took like 4 hours later for the house status to update. I couldnt find any reason for such, posted that their might be an issue and was called an "idiot". :coco:

    Then, a "somewhat" went poof like 3 hours later.
    I decided to NOT add to my thread! :D

    The actual idoc timer is still the same for me that it has always been.. 7hrs and 15 min. The actual idoc timer would start between 2am and 5am cst, leaving the house to fall between 9am and noon. After hitting idoc's for more than a year... all of a sudden it changed... recently. The same 7hr and 15 min window... but it wouldn't move to IDOC until after 4:30am sometimes as late as 7:30am and would fall between noon and 3pm.

    That said.. today I had two fall around 11:30ish... so maybe it's going back to "normal"? I sure hope so... best of luck to you!
  11. 7 hour timer.. only way it takes longer is if server was down.It hasn't changed in years and prob won't ever change.
