I'm new to the thread and don't like posting but how can everyone sit here and be cool about them messing up the update. If they would've put the patch at 5:00 am like every patch does they wouldn't have this problem. That is what happens when developers get lazy and have people that don't care support them. That is why every patch has to be approved by xbox because of things like this, a lot of you that are not complaining maybe have a lot of games to play or be outside most of the day. Not a lot of people like going outside or have a lot of games to play or have money to spend on a game they cant play when they want, i don't mind waiting but you all have to put yourself in they shoes and understand they're pain.

I would like a live-stream of their office. If I see them all running around, papers flying in the area, and hear the busy clicking of mice, I would feel calm.

If I turned it on, and there is a man eating a donut and watching youtube, I would rage.

What?

In pain?

If the worst thing that happens to you today is that you were unable to play a specific online shooter, then it can't have been a bad day.

MMO after launch - some people expect 24/7 uptime and no bugs. I like to call these people something that I would likely get in trouble for calling them on the forum.


So I won't. ;)

In the grand scheme of things it really doesn't matter. Will a messed up patch really influence your life much? Be happy you are privileged enough to have house to live in and you don't have to go outside. Some people actually live out there ya know.

ask yourself this,if mr microsoft are that good at checking the patches,then how on earth did it get passed by them,also patience is a requirement very few have nowadays.

Indeed it is as if most these people have never touched a MMO. As a MMO vet I am used to seeing game servers go offline for two days for maintenance. People these days just get to worked up over nothing. Hell we aren't even paying them 15 bucks a month for this awesome game like we would most MMO games lol.

I know one of the testers for MS in Seattle. Trust me, if you knew them, you'd know it makes perfect sense.

Since you don't like going outside (lolwut) and you can't afford any other games to play, I suggest you pick up a dictionary to pass the time. It would be nice if you could even spell the title of your own thread correctly, even if it is a pile of garbage.

Probably because some of us have been gaming long enough to expect everything to not go according to plan at any given point in time.

I understand perfectly and couldn't agree more. They are pain... specifically to my eyeballs.

the issue could have been something as simple as a corrupt file being uploaded to the Live distribution server, we don't know the details.

The reason a lot of people are "cool" with the server's not being live at the moment, is because the majority of us have played an MMO before. Routine maintenance isn't that difficult to employ, no. This is a huge patch that changes MANY different things about the game, and they have NO clue if all of the moving parts and people will click together and do what they THINK it's going to do until they try it out.

Big patches junk up most of the time, because they have totally unforeseen consequences. On paper, I am SURE they thought this was going to go as smooth as silk. In practice, not so much, and it happens to a LOT of online games deploying a large patch, and this one is quite hefty.

And while I can understand why people are frustrated, hell I'm frustrated too, most of us are aware that they WANT their game to work, and are now doing what they can to make that happen for us, and themselves.

@OP:

You sir, are a moron.

Trion developers are not lazy. They are some of the hardest-working developers in the gaming industry. This? This patch that everyone is whining about? This is nothing.

There have been hundreds of games, with considerably worse issues... and some of those issues NEVER get addressed. How about being thankful that you're getting a patch designed to ultimately make your playing experience more enjoyable?

Programming something like this isn't easy. Trion tests it on a small, in-house server. We know this, because this is how Rift Patches were tested, and it worked fairly well for them; it stands to reason they wouldn't deviate from that method. Following small-scale testing, they "upscale" the patch, and load it to live servers. In the process of this "upscale", invariably, shtako happens.

They're working on it.
Shut up and drink your juicebox.

Hmmm... maintenance in the middle of the day of a tuesday.. which is a weekday. Weekdays are known for being days where people work, and go to school. Weekdays were a problem for the beta because people were arguing that they wouldn't be able to play the game, being at work or school..

Sounds like as good a time as any to do it for me.

So i get why people are upset.However this is an mmo so while i am anxious,i understand that **** happens especially with something like this game.its alot to handle and plan around.that being said they could give us better information other than "servers are down and theres no eta" its been like 2 hours since they posted that,are you gonna tell me they havent made any progress?im just saying the team needs to let us know what is up

M$ does check patches though, in order to maintain a standard of quality. They don't want their "reputation tarnished" by games being released on their system that could interfere with other games or connectivity, especially since you pay for the Live service.

Completely different issue for PC of course. What Trion should do - and I really don't like appearing like I'm telling companies what to do - is to release the updates for PC sooner. The PC community is generally used to dealing with patch issues, experiencing bugs, etc. Since we don't need to have content approved, release our patch, and then, a few hours later, or the next day, patch the consoles. It's a simple solution that shouldn't impact anything since we're all segregated.

This would certainly alleviate some of the issues coming from the Xbox side of things, since they seem to be more vocal.

The gaming industry is as far as i can tell the only industry that can get away time after time with poor patch process , poor qa. Guess they never heard of a qat either.

Me i would have been fired over and over again if i did my job like they do theirs. I also release major releases as well as minor releases that affect customers , and you can be blooddy sure that if i do something that even slightlu affects customers in a bad way , i can pick up my resignation. But every MMO does the same in the beginning , poor tested and checked patches releasing in a live environment.

Ah well , i really should start to learn not to buy MMO˛s so early :)
