I play on the PS3 and on a normal weekend I get cut off about every 10 to 15 minutes. The extra load seems to cause crashes and disconnects. Is TRION taking any extra steps to prevent this when the DLC drops on Tuesday?

He does have a point though.

We've already tested the dlc on PC and all worked okay.

No idea what is going to happen when it hits the consoles but you have to remember that a few people from the studio they just closed are moving to Redwood so any issues that do come up may not be fixed instantly.

That goes for PC as well as consoles.

That seems like a safe bet.

Now now. I really hope they bring their A-game tomorrow. It's just that they crashed over the weekend, so I wouldn't get my hopes up. Maybe a community manager will stop by and say differently. Either way, you'll find out one way or another.

I'm expecting lagging servers due to more people getting on to play sieges, new arkfalls etc. Also I'm a bit doubtful concerning how the new stuff will run.

Did you guys have more than a dozen people at any Arkfalls or Sieges on the test server? Most of the videos I've seen were skimpy on players participating at either. I'm sure that CORE got a good number together, but probably nowhere near what normal would be for the game being live.

To be honest, and putting all arguments about the quality of the content aside, what I tested on the PTS worked pretty well.

Didn't seem to have many issues and it was stable enough during Arkfalls when quite a few folk turned up.

Pretty sure they should be able to get it working right on the consoles. Not going to start a console war (we all know i'm a spokesperson for the Master Race anyway so it would be biased) but Trion have had slight issues with our console cousins before.

I do hope it goes smooth for the folks using them though. They waited a while for this content to drop and it would be a shame for it to cause problems.

A couple of times there were quite a few turn up depending what time of day but I wouldn't say it was huge numbers compared to what you'd see on the live servers.

Couldn't guess at numbers due to the normal pop in and out of player characters on screen but it looked like a healthy number.

But no, not the kind of numbers you'd normally see so there could be issues but i'm hoping not.

lol, yea, to think Trion even remotely tried to make it work is foolish.

I have never seen a company care less about is community in my life.

From ignoring what we ask. to lying about content, to making the game stop working for months, from ripping us all off with boosts and never a refund.


Trion cares about money, that is all...

I give to you .... Ubisoft, EA and ActiVision.

And I give to you .... Ubisoft, EA, ActiVision and every other business ever created.

All any of them care about is money. Welcome to the world of business.

If they don't make money they don't last.

There's a lot of wrong here.

But I'll just settle with the "game stop working for months" comment and just call it as it is. Straight BS. If you want to complain about actual issues then do so. Blowing things out of proportion just to exacerbate the grief in this thread shows you for the type of poster you really are.

Pssst. In case you're too dense to figure it out, ya' just got kicked off the island yo'. :p

This weekend NA-PC server seemed to be packed. I got a disconnect followed by a queue to re-enter the game. I don't think the alpha server was anywhere near as full as the live ones will be. I'm expecting some connectivity problems.

He might be telling the truth on this one. There's a bug where a serious account corruption can occur which makes the game completely unplayable on the server you have your characters on.

I was struck with this bug myself in late May and had I not accidentally stumbled upon a work around by playing the game over VPN I would have been unable to play the game for well over a month as it wasn't until an actual developer created a brand new account and recreated my two characters on it by hand that I was able to play normally again.

And my main is still jacked up. I don't earn any reputation for completing Echelon or Paradise contracts and I cannot complete any pursuits as all objective progress is reset when I zone/log.

I basically "check-in" with this dev once or twice a month and tell him which pursuits I need completed. This is how things have been for me going on two months now.

Xervez Quickstrike got hit with the same corruption as well. I have no idea if they've moved him over to a new account and recreated his characters but I haven't seen him around for awhile so I think not.

Also, it took multiple e-tantrums across the forums, twitter, and facebook before I managed to get anyone to give a **** about my issue as once the ticket was escalated to tier III no tech support specialist ever bothered to reply to it.

For some reason I doubt it. I'm going into tomorrow not expecting to be able to play much because of server downtime. I hope I'm wrong though.

REALLY????

BS???

No no no, my character got kicked off for MONTHS off the NA server, I had to make a new character JUST TO PLAY.

never any sorry, never anything, just a email after a while saying "your character has been recovered"

This was after being ignored, for more than a month...


I don't mean this as an insult, but you have NO IDEA, how much I have been screwed by Trion....

Bossts disappear, legendarys removed from inv, character loss, being ignored.

Worst company, I have EVER dealt with, in my life. I just use my 2nd character now, since that's who I leveld up with more at this point.

So then what part of that equals "Game stopped working for months"? The cynic in me wants to think you got a char dropped for sum unsavory dealio. I don't know why you lost it, but it really sounds more like an extreme lvl of "sux 2 B U" and not an issue that the entirety dealt with.

That and you said yourself that you went on to play a new character.... A character that you could have easily done so sooner, but out of some distorted sense of damaged honor you chose not to. Again, your descision.

Finally, if you been screwed over so much then why ya' still here? Find a new game and take off. Chillax in some new digs and shake off the worries. Gamers like you that invest soo much time and personal energy into one game sure have me double checkin' where I live atm. Pretty sure I'm still in the US, not SK. Meh, not sure why I'm bothering. I wasn't brought up in this day and age of "hurry up, hurry up, now sit and wait." Must truly suck to point out key moments of your life along a game release date tracker.

There, there.... It's ok. So you lost some time invested in a virtual world. So you lost some virtual items that would disappear regardless of whether you used them or not. Ya' still got your health, oui? I'd be more understanding if your posting style didn't scream "!!shill!!" so much. Had enough practice spotting them out, and seeing as you're signed up literally now b4 the game gets it's muchly deserved DLC, it's lookin' more like you're here to just sh!t on the area with your supposed 'Trion encounters'.

With that... the BS call stands. Although Cav brings up an excellent example of a possible month long downtime issue, yours seems more about butt-hurt and ego spun into a shill forum account.

Good day sir. I'm off to sleep and wake up to the inevitable DLC purchase.

...I said GOOD DAY!
