Has the business model for routine maintenance been finalized yet? Routine outage, patches and what not.

A couple of things are still being finalized - especially with what/where/how we can update and patch.

I'm glad when Devs or Mods use the word "finalize" reminds me that release ain't that far! :)

It all depends on the system they use. If their weapon/character data is saved server side they could balance(theoretically) every week., like Mass Effect 3 did for its multiplayer. With major bug fixes coming through the title update system every couple of months. PC they could roll out patches as fast as needed. Us console players get ripped in that sense, if something massive breaks in an update, we'll have to wait for the fix to go through certification

Im sure that they will send periodic messages like they do with Black Ops II it has a message that pops up when you play multilayer. im sure they would do it just like

I personally think that at least a weekly restart is needed, it's the only way to fix issues like bugged spawn and such.

I understand the need for server re-starts/maintenance shut downs and so on so forth.
But i hate when it disrupts my play time! Especially if i hadn't played for awhile.
