I understand that the DLC maintenance will have a duration of 4 hours. I have an impatient question(im extremely excited :D) Does this mean it will really take 4 hours? or is it possible it would finish before the ETA?

It IS possible it could finish before but it is highly likely it may take a bit longer.

Run around in circles for hours due to excitement! It'll kill time great, especially if you pass out from exhaustion.

I'm betting it will NOT take all of four hours. Here's my thinking. This is the first big deliverable since Chris took over as the EP for Defiance and Scott took over as the CEO of Trion. I would expect BOTH of them to want to show us a new face of Trion, a Trion that under promises and over delivers.

I would expect this patch to actually require ~ two hours, so they doubled it so as to under promise. Of course, faster or slower doesn't matter unless it runs well after we get it up.

That would be great if it took less than the expected time.

^^ This... which also keeps you from being disappointed when it does, in fact, take longer.

Plan for the best, but expect the worst.

I'm a big fan of the "keep your expectations low" saying, myself. ;)

You should try and make her meme's. Horrible ones that make no sense. Show your enthusiasm for what you just created. Tell her she inspires you.
I'd say you should be playing with the rest of us, about 30 to 45mins after making the first meme.
Or if this was BlckOps2.. you could just hire a "replacer".

Naaa' I can't do that. I'll just tap her on her 'reset' button and leave her all relaxed like.
