Small time people like me playing software developer by myself can just keep failing forward.. what they are working on warrants a fairly intensive dive into what is and is not working before turning knobs and flipping switches. Would make quite a bit of sense to get a working list of all things that were observed to be broken after the patch and then RB , while working out the issues, failing forward is only for me, not for them.Serious though, at what point do sit around and say ok something broke after the maintenance patch, then an hour later, ok something broke again, and again. Why wouldn't you just roll back to what worked until you figure out these issues. I thought the test server was suppose to be the testing ground for things before going live. This is just unacceptable for a company that makes it's living on paying customers.
No, managed by the government would mean the servers would continue forward like nothing is wrong. All the while the server is on fire. It would go on like this for years and ultimately they'd blame it all on one person who was in the building, but played no significant role in the fire. It's very well possible they also didn't know the fire existed.boom... jesus.. its like they are managed by the government..
How True! Also, don't forget... it was the last guy's fault... I inherited the fire due to the last administrations blundering. I'm trying to put the fire out! Meanwhile they throw more gasoline on the fire to make it worse, so they can raise taxes in order to "put it out better". ha!No, managed by the government would mean the servers would continue forward like nothing is wrong.

You think the standard for uptime should be the ice cream machine at McDonald's? I think that's more downtime, not less.I'm tired of repeatedly spending 90 minutes loading and setting up 30 accounts every few hours. Maybe they should hire some of those $15 mcds employees.
Game is evolvingCan't seem to buy Soulstones on Povar atm. The NPC's in the GL who sell them seem to be on vacation. Or perhaps I am merely going insane. We'll see.
