I hear that Hello Kitty Online doesn't even have downtime! Perhaps you should go join that and send me your stuff?

Was it just me or did I just lose all hope at the sight of yet another whine thread and troll?
I'm sure, that if you told some people to get a life they would just spend the rest of the day trying to find where they could download one!

Hey, look on the bright side....Nano's haven't been mentioned once!! Very Happy

I reckon nanos should get a boost. I mean, I spend money to get Nano Is, I should get my money's worth, right?

We can't have that, now can we?

Ahem...Dear CCP, I would officially like to register a complaint that I cannot hit a Nanofiber Frigate Class vessel with my Dual 1000mm Railgun. This makes no sense, as a round fired from this weapon is nearly the size of the frigate itself, and should easily turn such a vessel into a pile of smoking wreckage.

(Disclaimer: The preceding was intended for parody purposes only. I would not actually advocate hitting a frigate with such a weapon. However, I do fully recommend using frigate size railguns to hit frigate sized targets. While I have several issues with capital class vessels reaching speeds up over 3 or 4 km/s, anything smaller than a BS or BC seems fine by me. Merely opinion though.)

You could argue that EVE doesn't do it terribly well, but ****, show me any other one that does it at all. Laughing

Anyone who's ever worked with a large database will know that they require a lot of maintenance, and EVE is a bloomin massive database! If you don't offline them to clean them up regularly, they have a tendency to go nuts, slowing down and sometimes even randomly deleting chunks of data!

Warcraft and AoC only have to do it once a week because they're relatively tiny databases, but even so - how often do their servers crash and rollback? Almost daily, from my experience!

In eve, the average player has thousands of items which fill up the database. In WoW or AoC you have like max 30 items. In eve we have a market with millions of transfers every day, in wow you have the tiny Auction house which has maybe couple thousand transfers a day. We also have 30 000 players logged on to the server, not 3000.

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

Originally by: scott trade

Are you really that stupid? Last weeks Funcom AoC patch resulted in a 12+ hour downtime (originally supposed to be only 5 hours). Todays Funcom AoC patch has already been extended and who knows when they'll get thier crappy software working.

You have no idea on how good we have it here in EO, and when you compare them to Funcom as having a better downtime schedule, well you just showed that if we converted your brains to gasoline we still would not have enough to power an ant's motorcycle around the inside of a bottlecap.

The daily downtimes allow them to reset the servers and database to keep them running stable. There isn't a MMORPG on the market that runs non stop 24/7, get used to it.

From what I have seen AoC sucks ballsies so why bother with it at all. Eve for life (atleast until a better mmo comes out) Wink

Why I like eve:
Eve has the best market and industry of all mmo's, you can actually make a profit by selling items as there will always be demand due to ships getting destroyed and not just respawning after 10 seconds.

Eve has the best pvp with no respawns for ships and modules. I don't like to kill the same guys 100 times in row after they just respawn and come back with no real loss at all.

And many other things like 0.0 space and actually being able to be part of something..

Ok Scotty, why dont you mention a mmorpg with a persistent world where everybody plays in the same world that has one downtime per week?

Besides, you cant really compare Eve to other games. Have you seen anything like Eve out there?

Someone beam Scotty up.
