Honestly, it's like these guys don't understand how to run an MMO. You NEVER take the servers down on the BUSIEST DAYS-the WEEKENDS. I am sick and tired of these ridiculous downtimes with this game. The BETA for DUST is in better shape than this one.

I agree. I am a computer tech and the first thing we learned was never take the servers down when it is busy. thay need to do the patching at like 3 or 4am.

To be fair, it should have been added when they added the challenge. Since they forgot, it requires an additional downtime. Poor planning overall.

For 30 mins.. to update the Paradise store so you can get the limited colored Challengers. If you're seriously b*itching about this.. being 30 mins.. then God forbid you obtaining what? 10, 15, 000 XP lost in the 30 min update? Yea, that's something to b*tch.. all you people do is b*tch and complain. MMO's are hard to do to begin with. Get it thru your thick skulls. NO one has really mastered MMO's yet, but Trion has definitely been the first to take that leap into trying. And honestly, besides the server issues and game bugs, this game has definitely been the best MMO made so far.

For you impatient whiners, shut up, or quit the game. Kleenex is running out of tissues for you. The game will get fixed, patience IS a virtue.

If you have nothing better to do with the 30 minutes the server is down, you could bring me some coffee and breakfast. And clean my house. My lawn also needs some attention if you're still deathly bored. :P

Like we all don't have 600+ rep with Paradise faction already. If their last patch is any indication of the unpreparedness with the addition of Freightyard, and removal of freightyard, and unplanned hours of maintenance, they don't appear to have a good handle on a part of the process. Lets not harken back to the patch before that with similar behavior.

I don't need to site this data, you simply need to be a user to see the instability, poorly done patches and scrambling to repair the damage caused by them.

I agree there's no need to rage about the downtime, but I can't help but shake my head when the server is brought down daily, for fixes to fixes.

That is what forums are for, to rant, complain, share, discuss, etc.

Can't be tolerant of one and not the other, if someone starts a negative thread complaining, ignore it, don't bump it up.

I'm sure other people agree, even if they are trolling those who share the same sentiment.

Downtime = boredom for some, since they probably live in rural areas where there is nothing better to do.

Let us pity those less fortunate, like myself, stuck in crappy West Texas.

today's patch is @ 7 am pdt I'm sorry this isn't peak hours for the time zone nor is the east coast equivalent of 10 am. Most people, myself included if I weren't at work, are still asleep/doing something important.

Well, now it's ten o'clock in chicago...getting closer and closer to peak gaming times, and Trion is stuck with their pant's around their ankles trying to upload some stupid ****ing colors for vehicles? That represents poor planning. Anybody who has ever worked with computers knows to make changes when there is lots of time to recover from the inevitable debacle that WILL occur. for example, they could do this at, say, 3 am central time. Then, when the whole thing goes down the crappie, they would have plenty of time to fiddle with it and they would only be angering a few insomniacs (and gamers in the EU). I never update software at my job unless I have twenty-four hours to deal with a problem, and my software is simpler than Defiance by a longshot.

30 mins = code for 2 hours. Most games do updates and maint on weekday nights during the least busy hours.

I wish they would at least make half hearted attemps at making decent estimates of downtimes.

These 2 things really show how much this company cares about it's clientele. It's sad because I like the game but they are killing it with thier total lack of concern for their customers. I'm glad I didn't buy a season pass or anything like i wanted too.

I also like how they put things on the start up screen like "fix to dam defense" but it's still not playable. Another BS stunt to disappoint players. Oh well...
