I'm curious why CCP, as a progressive company, has downtime EVERY day, often extended downtime. Most contemporary MMOs get by with one downtime a week. I think CCP should take a look at what Blizzard and Funcom and mimic that downtime behavior as a courtosy to its playerbase

Eve's architecture is completely different to Age of Conan's and World of Warcraft's.

If you are tired of all the people on the same server you could go start your own. As far as I know that is the primary difference...

Incremental backups, stealth server-side changes, history database trimming, etc.

often extended downtime.

Additional server-side changes that can't finish in the jiggle room granted from the time the daily "mandatory" upkeep routines finish to the 1 hour mark.

Good for them.

I think you need to understand the HUGE differences in server-side architecture.

EVE: Online is not like most MMOs. I thought you would realize that when you SIGNED UP FOR THE GAME!

Question for you. Does the WoW which you so seem to love, give all its bigass patches, for free? No? then stop complaining. Each game has its own benefits, get over yourself.

Or we can keep a system that will not:

1. Result in the veldnought eating its way through all the veldspar in the amarr system and moving onto the moons in a day

2. Result in jita forming a black hole after 2 days that would suck in the rest of the galaxy over the next week before finaly imploding.

Haven't you raised this several times already and been beaten back with a big stick each time? Bored yet?

The extended downtime today was necessary for the deployment of several server side changes to Tranquility.

Details of the changes can be found at Empyrean Age 1.0.1-2 Server side change, released 10 July 2008

There has been a 1 hour downtown everyday at the same time since the start of EVE.

Either get used to it or quit.
