The fact that predicted finishing time has shifted from 21.30 to 23.30 should be of little consequence to most eve players - except school children in Europe who wanted to have the patch installed before bed.

The fact that ccp have simply ninja edited the original front page post from 21.30 -> 23.30 and have left the link in that front page post to a post stating that they expect servers to be on line at 21.30 - show how arrogant and incompetent the company is.


So, you're saying they should remove all previous updates to their posts just to make it appear that their magic crystal ball was correct the whole time? It makes sense that they would change the original post that would be seen from the main news page to reflect the NEW expected time for those people who do not constantly troll the forums.

Wow are you guys over-reacting... like Omg, CCP has wasted 12 hours of your time and now you have to be in the real world, that must be so traumatizing for you. This happens like once or twice a year, not like it happens daily, and you try putting out something like this, It's hella difficult, and even if you get it perfect during a test, there no way to tell what will happen when the server is under stress of 50,000 people. And be honest, the majority of you would just be spinning your ship... or now avatar around in circles anyway.


wow how i wish all this kissasses to stop posting those comments... would it be soo much better if you could actually think before posting. Only in the last 30 days CCP had over 40 hours of downtime during EU tz alone. The standard reply would be "yes, you lost 2 euro, go cry". Multiply that 2 euros with 45 thousand accounts ( yeah because, as much as CCP would like us to think, they dont have more than 30 thousand players, with an average of 1.5 accounts each ), and youll see how much they are paid just to mock you. Or multiply with the 36-48 months of the dedicated players subscriptions to see how much they pay. Another standard reply is : "read the EULA". There is a law in EU which mentions the liabilities of the service provider in case of long accumulated interruptions in service. That law invalidates the entire section of the eula. And a third standard reply : "the accounts are paid with isk not RL money". This is hilarious, do these posters ever think long enough to realize how the GTCs are paid ?

I think EVE is a great game, despite the latest *really* bad development decisions. But the respect to the customer is close to non-existent for CCP. In fact, is the worst i have ever seen in the MMORPG business, and, if they dont start to do something about that, they will lose all the players to a not-so-great game company that knows how to keep them.

As did I, without explanation though.

I put in a 25 hour skill yesterday at 16:00. WTF CCP

I demand SP and also a longer skill queue!

Shouldn't you be accurate about patch times after 11 years? That's what I thought?! Thanks for ruining my skill plan. I might just unsub tbh

Except UTC does not take into account daylight savings etc, so GMT is +1 hour on UTC. Until the clocks go back later in the year.
GMT does not account for daylight saving either.

Furthermore GMT is not really a correct term. It's a generic term and an historical term that is still often used, but it does not precisely identify a specific time scale.

The correct name for time as determined by astronomical observations exactly at the 0 longitude (that is Greenwich) is UT1.

Since UT1 does not advance uniformly, several smoothed versions of UT1 are in use and are called UT1R, UT2 and UT2R depending on what kind of periodic variations are smoothed out.

UTC is a time scale that advances uniformly but approximates the real astronomical time with leap seconds. It is kept to within 0.9 seconds of UT1.

When sub-second precision is not needed it is customary to refer to any of these time scales as GMT. For historical reasons GMT is also used to refer to UTC when speaking about legal time and time zones. All world legal clocks are in fact based on UTC with a (mostly hourly, but sometimes smaller) offsets applied according to longitude.

In England winter time is UTC (but called GMT) and summer time is BST which is one hour more than UTC (and expressed as GMT+01).

Older users were telling people in Help to set long training on several days before the downtime.

Your bad. No sympathy. Evil or Very Mad

Correct me if I am wrong but have they EVER been right on a patch day? Why the **** not just give a more realistic estimation from the start?

Wrong "you're" <-Not a simple grammatical error: you have in fact, used the wrong word entirely. Bad.

Also he is not bad for knowing ahead of time to look in the help channel to get advice he did not know he needed. TL;DR: You're* a douche.

this extension of downtime should be expected folks. its normal.

its absolutly NOT normal.

We migrated whole Networks from NT4 to W2K with exchange and active directories over different countries in less time and that is ALLWAY much more pain in the ass than patching a ****ing game!
Ever...and for allways.



Any IT will know that they are using Microsoft.... like these forums... its called Sharepoint.... nothing with microsoft ever goes according to plan :) Oracle would be a better choice... but too costly :) (hire me?)


Originally by: octahexx Charante
its not like the server gonna be stable the coming week anyway with more extended downtime because of "database problems".
more downtime!!!!! i demand it!


Again, have you ever worked with microsoft? I have and click the wrong button.. BOOM!

Use linux, WebSphear and oprcale... a lot less problems... but more $$$ where your trade off?

To all the freaking idiotic whining maggots in this thread - they're deploying a massive patch morons! It's going to take as long as it takes. Did any of you honestly expect to be playing at all today? Anyone who didn't stack their skill queue to cover at least the next four days is either a ****** or simply hasn't been paying attention.

Let them work - if they take the time to get this right there will probably be less downtime/crashes/bugs in the days and weeks ahead.

Never seen so much ass licking in my whole life, you expect ccp will hire you for this, or maybe give you a few bucks to spend in the new vanity stuff?

To those who say "quit whining", quit licking yourselves.

No, it is not.

UTC in international atomic time with leap seconds.
GMT is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

For the sub-second precision we need to determine when the server will be open there is a difference yeah...

What a bizarre little freak you must be. I want to be hired by CCP? To do what exactly? I work for one of the world's biggest law firms in London - what the hell would I want to go to Iceland for/to do?

Maybe it's you who should go work for CCP - I'm sure you'd have this patch up and running by now. Utter tosspot!
