Tranquility will be undergoing a hotfix from 1100-1400 on Friday, March 14 so we can resolve issues arising from the deployment of the Trinity 1.1 booster patch.

As reported in our earlier News Item new player missions have been disabled for 24 hours and this hotfix will eliminate the issues with them. We will also be fixing the problem with Civilian Codebreaker/Analyzers and Archaeology.

Please remember to get your character our of harm's way and set a skill long enough to cover the downtime prior to logging off.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Hey Mitnal, any chance of getting someone from CCP brave enough to comment in this forum thread that you set up?? What is the problem now? As a 'community representative' i would of thought you would be capable of finding someone who can communicate with the 'savages'... Evil or Very Mad

5 mil says it will still be down at 15:00:00 GMT. Any takers?

I'll take that bet on the condition that I don't pay if I'm wrong.

Then I guess it would be safe to recommend everybody to avoid doing business or coorperating with you in general ;-)...

Dear players, today's Downtime will be extended further due to deployment taking a bit longer than originally announced. We expect to have Tranquility up and open for business at about 15.30 GMT.

Any chance that we can play more than 2 days without huge downtime ?

The whole idea of this patch is super. It's stuff I thought about too. How to reduce lag etc... Give some breathing room for those nodes (servers).

It's a damn splendid idea.

The implementation, however, is as were used to.

EVE developers should really consider a few things. How much is their fanbase going to accept. And how much can they shove down their throat.

EVE needs to stay alive, that's the prime concern of the DEV's. They crunch numbers and they see what is needed.

But really, what IS needed. You have a playerbase of thousands of people, that have been playing right from the start. They now are flying motherships, titans, dreads and carriers. And they duke it out with those ships, sometimes.

And, newsflash, it is BORING !

We don't play EVE to be bored. Do we ?

Hm in the meantime is the server longer down than online. That is no funny its boring

Hmm i chose a skill that ends training at 1600cet (1500 gmt) ..I almost start praying to the amarian gods the downtime ends before then (and I am gallente can you imagine ?)

But dont curse on the devs they cant help unforseen issues that arise on a full server (hard to ask 30k friends on to test before release Laughing

But maybe a training que would help with theis issue lets say you can put in 3 skills t train and if one is trained the other starts ..Time = isk in this harsh universe

ow btw anyone know why i can only see an ! where my picture is supposed to go on the forum ? I want to show off my handsome image Razz

I totally agree with the training que... surely that would stop everyone complaining when we lose playing time, safe in the knowledge at least our char is still getting trained (however god damn sloow that process is)? Is there some reason CCP have for not bringing this in?

or have we all gone completely mad? Shocked

well I can think of one big reson why ccp would want not to implement a que. the thing is that players who reley on game time cards for the most part, have figured out that skilling of long term skills will continue even if the game time runs out. At present most players dont have skills that take more then 30 days or so to train to next lvl so its not that big of a deal. But if you could que 3 long term skills you could set your account to train for 3-4 mounths for free. This would be werry bad for bussnes, becouse this would shurly become werry popular espicialy for players who own more then one account.

that is why u impliment an exception along the lines of "if <player> has not logged on in <insert time window> pause training" which would then stop the que from operating for such a long period of time and would require them to keep their account active durring training

oh and they updated their DT quote:

Just a quick thought... ? Even if they added a training queue, I would be willing to bet dollars to donuts it still wouldn't move your skill training during downtime.

The devs have posted before that the way training works is they record the time you start training a skill, and then they use that to figure out when it's supposed to end. Well, if a skill completes while the server's down, there would be no server up to record the start time of the next skill in the queue. I mean, they could maybe add some trickery to get around the problem during downtimes, but I have a feeling in a large, distributed database system like the one they're running they probably wouldn't want to give it a shot.

Just my 5 ISK...

that is because the MS bugs are not dramatically that big of a deal. and MS tests thoroughly requiring their entire company to find a minimum # of bugs every testing cycle. and when they release a patch it rarely (and i cant remember a time it ever happened) causes huge issues that require them to say "we're sorry but u cant use ur computer for a few days while we try to fix the problem"

Well i think there should be at the very LEAST some sort of emergency que - just one skill you want trained during periods of extended downtime which occur through no fault of our own. Surely its not that difficult to work out which charcaters are not being trained while the servers down? Its obvioulsy not down for CCP as they are 'supposedly' testing it...

Wouldn't it be great if we did not have to pay fo the down time that CCP takes from our play. But then again, I doubt that CCP even reads this post. They just put it up to make people think that they care.
