take a quick minute to check the Sever Status page on the forums to check if its a server maintenance, or a server crash before making these threads.

If there is a post with the current time and date, then its most likely a maintenance. If there is no thread at all, its probably a crash


Youre not the boss of me :P

eme doesnt have to warn ingame for maintenance, people just dont check on forums but raging about "why server maintenance or what server maintenance is about or so on"

you should know better than that but meh (not really), we all lazy? no?


On a tuesday they usually warn, seen it lots of times. Just saying..would be nice for the ppl who dont have time to check forums everyday.

last week there was no warning message on tuesday, i guess eme telling us "check forums for more info weekly maintenance" i agree people who dont check time to check forums everyday, ingame warning would nice rather than check forums.

As I said in another topic, doesnt take long to open the forum and check.
And tbh, if people have the time to come in here, login and make threads about the servers being down, they have time to open the forum and see if there's a thread about any maintenance. (that takes less time than having to login and write a thread)

1. I live in a different timezone, so its not a quick check I have to take the times they give and convert them to GMT. Q-Q probably not that much longer but still a pain in the [filtered]. So yea, I appreciate in game warnings like on most tuesdays' server maint - I mean, how hard is it really to have a notice flash up.

2. I don't usually feel like logging into the forums when i'm about to play in game, it can be distracting and I have limited time. So I usually log on here like for example lastnight when the servers went down...to see what's up.

3. I see what you're saying, but my point is just that it is really annoying to be told to check a forum before playing in game every time.

I too live a different time zone so I can relate.
But if you go to the server status page, they usually leave a warn about maintenance there too and there's a clock with the time, so it helps a bit to know how many hours/minutes you have before maintenance.

You really dont need to login, just open the forums look and close. The thread, if any, has the time and date on the title, so you really dont need to open anything.
Yes it can be distracting, but then again, you can use the server status page.

The ingame notice is indeed good but we cant always expect it, unfortunately.

Im just saying, for people that usually rage about these kind of things, just check the forums and avoid a headache :D

EDIT: Just a heads up: If it is GMT +1 (London) it is 8hours more. So if they say 7am, it will be 3pm for us.

Hi Folks,

I am investigating why no messaging went out in game for this morning's maintenance, because I personally set it up yesterday to go out at 60, 30, 15, 5, and 1 minute before the maintenance. Can I get confirmation from folks on different servers that there was no messaging? It will help to know if it was one server that it did not go out on, or all of them.

Thanks, and I'm sorry for the trouble.
