After all these years .. are we ever going to see 24 hr uptime? 11 am - 12 GMT downtime is such a pain in the backside. I'm sure the original plan was to phase this out.

Meh wife always decides that she will go and do something on her own at that time .. but there's no Eve to play with *cry*

Sure I can amuse myself for an hour .. but selfishly I want the game to be up at a time convenient to me.

Shove the downtime period to the middle of the night GMT so the US can enjoy the downtime period during the day for a change .. after all, they're just as capable of amusing themselves for an hour as us Euro folk.

Somehow I don't see the folks in london who would have to do the downtime maintenance agreeing with your point of view.

Use the one hour the servers are down for something neccesary. Shopping, get laid, eating, showering, calling in sick, rest.. etc.

Honestly, its only one hour! The servers have to go down for some critical maintainance. I am sure we all will survive the one hour the server is down. At least now in the christmas time

They wrote this game to appease their London ops guys - or for the enjoyment of MMO gamers?

Seriously though - I'm not really expecting them to fanny around shifting downtime - but they were talking about 24/7 operation initially so I was just curious. The timing could be better from a European perspective.

Just think of all the useful things you could do though in that hour .. like pod Richard Phallus .. say - 20 times or so.

So when the game launched - CCP touted the idea that one day it would go 24 hr without downtime. What's the problem asking about that?

But no .... you have to launch yourself in there with the 'whiny child' spiel like you're important. Before I post next - remind me to cross reference the 'northwesten' guide to appropriate forum etiquette. I would hate to offend you again by posting a topic that offends your mighty stature - or post in a fashion that you find displeasing your highness.

May I suggest that by removing the corn cob from where it's currently placed - it would make your stay at these forums more pleasing?

I suggest you treasure that single hour and use it wisely. Personal hygiene and/or ventures outside your door is highly recommended.

I assume it's a choice between scheduled DT and the servers falling over periodically.

And really some of you guys need to get a book or something to read for an hour.

it is a common myth that the hours downtime is actually needed. It's there simply so people can load up eve mon and eve fit, and attach ever more expensive setups to frigate, create a ship template called 'mypwnmobiletitan' then worry porry over the 3.9 years their current skillplan will take.

I like the implicit assumption that always rises in these threads that people who want to play during what is now downtime are actually already playing the other 23 hours.

Rolling EyesYou have a point but the OP is specifically asking for 24 hour gaming.

The text of the OP actually refers to 24 hours uptime. Read more than the title.
