I'd rather have daily downtime than unexpected bugfix downtime just as I manage to tackle that mining battleship in my Rifter.

Sorry, I'd rather have a functioning game than shortened daily downtime. This does not impress me.

QFT

If this impacts on performance or playability in any way, I would rather have the DT tbh.

If it genuinely is a win-win situation, then well done.

the consistently shorter DT is one of the few things that CCP is doing right, as long as it isn't linked to the massive number of bugs we have


i would prefer a 2 hour DT to the current state of the game

Well, I guess you will need to pay someone to invent a computer chair with a build in shower. It will need to be made of water-proof material or tile, then just throw a coushin on it. Simply remove coushoning before showering, either wrap shower curtain around chair or install sliding circular glass with door as well as a drain or hose to neareast drain.

Umm... in my experience with DT, it never really lasts even 30 mins to begin with. Then again, I'm usually asleep at that hour.

It's called a sponge bath... it's refreshing and gets the stink off so you can keep going Embarassed

You just need to invent a RL pod. Once you are in a self cleaning fluid sac you won't have any need of a shower, nor will you have to waste time getting food or relieving yourself (though it is recommended you hire someone to replace the nutrient tanks and empty the waste tanks from time to time)
It's the perfect plan.

What if... just hear me out here... if you ****ed off the person that was suppose to change out the tanks.. and put the wast tank where the nutrient tank went... then you die..ugh

This can't end well. I bet you the day we have no DT is the day the old bugs start coming back.

Just think, the day (in the future apparently) when there is NO DT at all !

There will be massive whine threads from people who plan their activities around the normal DT periods (i.e. bathing, conversing with the spouse/kids, doing actual work or just restocking the {Giant Secure Snack} container). Macro miners/ratters will rejoice in the extra time they have to do their thing. AFK CLoakers will never have to worry about logging in and warping to their safe spots once a day !

I wonder how the 'roids will respawn (and other items like plex sites), if it will change when NPC standings are updated (which normally happens during DT) and how will it effect things like outpost construction ?

It will be nice to not have to panic and try to finish something off before the DT timer ends though. Been caught too many times trying to get those last couple of jumps in, or finishing off a mission before getting booted. Sad

I wonder how plexes respawning around the clock (presumably how it'll work) will affect exploration and FW. I'm guessing removal of DT will coincide with making asteroid belts part of the exploration mechanic.
