I'd ask for your stuff, but you already gave it to me!


Can you give her stuff to me?


I would but it was my stuff that I gave to her when I quit a couple of days ago when the database last crashed.

Can I have your stuff?



My stuff will sit in my hanger to help crash the database on random occasions.


If you give it to me, it will still help crash the database when I take it into a fleet fight which brings down all of TQ Very Happy

Again with database issues?!?! Sheesh.


That's how it is with online games, the single biggest weak spot with any MmO is its database, i've played upwards of 20 diferent MmO's over the years and the single thing they have in common is crashes caused by database issues, it happens, all we can do is wait for the servers to return.

This is just crazy, why do we pay incompentent engineers to make this shat.

Really, the problem with software today is that it's "acceptable" and "accepted" and "expected" to be unstable and buggy and crash. I know because that is what is expected of us (Im a software engineer too at a very BIG cash cow "platform" house no names but enuf hints). Unfortunately this is a fact of corporate life, instability is expected and accepted. Yet on the other hand we expect to be treated like "structural engineers" that "build bridges" and so on and all that bullshat when infact we are nothing like them and wont ever be in the next decade (or the past decade too). Real engineers retired long ago in the 60s, 70s, 80s. It died in the 90s and definately the 00's.

The core problem isnt the fact that it does just that, the core problem is a social problem, acceptance that we ship low quality shat.

We can role play and pretend to be "engineers" when in fact we are nothing close to it. Myself included. We are just hacks.

Flame me all you want, You know deep down I am right.



oh stop your *****ing, it happens, jeeze. Go grab a cold Mt Dew or something. Go have a smoke. Go touch yourself, Whining about "incompetent" devs isnt gonna get the server up faster.



This is exactly the problem with software "engineering" today. Read my updaed post. I hold my employee's "Engineers" ACCOUNTABLE. I get much higher quality deliverables now. No egos, just quality work, if they **** up, they end up accountable. "It happens" yes, I had one engineer say that to me. He learnt his lesson. The quality of his work is now impeckable. He actualy spends more time thinking about the consequences of his work. I work in HFT (High Frequency Trading) his "ego" can cost the company MILLIONS in a day.

You know what might actually be a good idea?
Take TQ offline for a week. And have every developer actually spend time fixing what appears to be serious underlying issues with its stability and then allowing everyone back on (with a largeish pool of skill points as compensation!) after it's fixed!

And yes, I'm a bit annoyed. First time I get to play in two weeks and I get an hours play in before it dies!

While you're fixing the DB issues, could you mark on the next expansion's calendar a proper QUEUE?!?!?!?!?

I mean really! The crashes are a big enough issue only to be compounded with a queue that has no function and follows no logic. "You're #416 in queue" Followed by a second client that starts just mere seconds to be #25 in queue. Then finally being told status: ok to be told you're #125 in queue......seriously, for the love of God!

Hey CCP, Remove the cartridge from the database, blow into cartridge, replace cartridge back into database and push power on.

Works like a charm on all old NES systems...

Now we get to have the happy fun time of dealing with petitioning our losses and the wonderful CCP GM's who won't replace any losses because of company policy.

Hey CCP, get new equipment and new company policy. When you "f" up you "pay" up!

i try to avoid replying to these threads but seriously, someone made a good point earlier on - the new shineys are all well and good, but when the basics keep screwing up, the expansions become kinda pointless

i really would rather see an expansion focused on just stability issues, and bugger all the nice new stuff, just a game that's generally on 23/7 would do me down to the ground

um, the queue is based on what proxy server you connect to. thus, one proxy might have a 50 player queue, whilst another has no queue.

it works perfectly, just you are being load-balanced and every server you connect to has a different queue, thus you get diferent numbers =p


honestly, just restart and you usually get no wait
