Question for CCP Hunter:

Good info, and I was just thinking about this the other day. Right on and looking forward to 'no daily downtime'.

So, does this mean there will be some type of weekly or monthly maintenance instead?

hmk

Someone asked in thread if cloaky *****es will be able to stand indefinitely in system

i think this is a valid question, whats the answer? If you don't yet have an approach to it why not a auto-logout due to inactivity

oh right that'd hurt the macros :/

Sir,

Your trolling abilities are close to level 0. You might want to learn that macros aren't affected by inactivity since they're ...hmm ... macros. And thus sending commands to the game every few seconds/minutes just like a real player would Rolling Eyes

I recommend that you biomass this alt (and your main if possible) and never come back. That way, you won't also be tempted to afk cloak in high sec to grief mission runners.

If a macro glitches out and stops sending commands, I would think the macro user would WANT an auto logout due to inactivity.

Tell you what I will take your 7 x 30 min down times and exchange it for 2 x 1 hour down times a week. Just an idea.

But this is a giant step for people who are time zone dis-advantaged.

Awesome! But a quick question, will there still be DT? like a weekly or monthly thing?

There will not be a weekly or monthly "fixed" DT. However, there will be a patchly and a fail-ly DT.

Why is it im not so looking forward to having no downtime? surely this would mean if things are going wrong we will have unsheduled downtimes rather than having a down time each day which we all know is comming?

Im all for a shorter DT but none at all?

And as said before how would downtime reliant things be done, is it possible to do them while the server is running?

i know occasionally now we have major issues that force a server reboot etc but im just talking in general issues that can wait till DT to be solved etc

Pretty much every other MMO in existence is up 24/7 with downtime only for occasional scheduled maintenance or problems. EVE culture has actually grown around the idea of a daily downtime, which means that even if the technical reasons for a DT are eliminated, artificially created reasons remain.

That said, if certain problems such as 24/7 cloaked ships or macros can be dealt with, then having the cluster up 24/7 would mean a more consistent gameplay experience without being interrupted on a regular basis. I think I'd like that.

Is this what triggered "Test" Alience's exploit attempt then? TPTB at Test saw this devblog and thought; hey, if were going to use this cunning plan we'd better get into it before CCP bins downtime.
