Hi all,

Anybody out there wanna take a stab at guessing how long the downtime is going to be? I know Sledge said 4 hours but we all know their estimates have been underestimated with past patches. Maybe it's 4 hours this time due to the large patch or maybe they're just covering their a**es (in which case, good job). Anyway, I'm confidently guessing a six hour downtime with extensions included. Anybody else?

P.S.

I do like that a lot of things are getting tweaked and fixed (UI, sniper rifle scopes, and arkfall weapon rewards among them) but I still wanted to have a little fun and get the forum involved. So... 6 hours for me. You?

I'm guessing the initial outage will take only 3.5 hours. Then the game will be up for 2 hours and then down for 6 hours.

a better question might be "How many people will be complaining about the unexpected and unannounced downtime?"

I think the downtime is going to be exactly four hours, and if you log in right when servers go up you'll get sucked in like Tron.

Right, totally forgot about Freightyard. I'm fairly confident that thing is getting broken again

Yeah that's pretty much what I'm thinking as well.
The forums gonna be filled galore with people complaining that it's taking too long.

I wouldn't be suprised if they were expecting 2 hours and said 4 hours in case problems arose they would have time to work on them. Past experience may be shining through.

I honestly dont mind a little extrs downtime as i understand stuff happens. Its the patch sizes i worry about. My net at home is slow since i live in a rural area and its the only option i have at a whopping 120kb/s lol. Maybe well get lucky things will go smooth.

Don't really affect me that much... just hope that it'll be up when i wake up in the morning and it does not take 8 hours to update the patch..

It`s allready down, let`s see how long it takes.
Unfortunatly i can`t play today, just turned on my PS3 and when the patch is done we will have
to download it and install it...it will be time for me to sleep cause i work at night.

servers go up again in 2.5 hours, are taken down again 1.5 hours later, that downtime will be 90 minutes, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour

This.

And how many thread will be created to whine? (you can count this one already).

There will allways be whining, or else they would be bored for real. :)

"ZOMG this game sucks they said 6 hours and it's a minute past that"

or

"maybe if they used all 6 hours to patch, instead of the 2 that it took, we wouldn't have these bugs an hour later"

Sadly, there's no pleasing everyone. All I hope, is that things go relatively smoothly, and the bulk of the patches are successful. Yes, the patch also will include future content like sieges, and the next batch of episode missions - but they will not be available for a few weeks. A lot of the patch data, is just a pre-load for those events. I'm still expecting to see a lot of "where are sieges?" posts.

We started a pool on the PS3 General Forums, 5k scrip to enter. My wager is 7hrs 15 minutes of total downtime.

Good luck to you in your pool though!

*4 hours base + 1 hour unexpected extension
*Server up for 30mins to 1 hour
*Server Taken down for emergency maintenance. No ETA given.
*1 hour later the server is up.

Spread over the next 6hr 30min - 7hrs ... I would estimate a total of 6 hours of down time.
Would I expect freight yard or other maps to be back in the game? Yes, briefly. They will be the cause of the emergency maintenance.

Of course, I could be wrong and all the required maintenance could be completed in 4 hours and everything turns out perfect in the game.

No shot everything is going to be perfect just from past experience.
But it seems like you have a pretty good itinerary up there

Approaching 8 hours (not counting the one hour we were actually able to play) and still no sign of stopping. Anyone have 10?

servers go up again in 2.5 hours, are taken down again 1.5 hours later, that downtime will be 90 minutes, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour, extended by an hour

Oh the good ol' days. I was so naive.

Can't believe I was actually giving trion too much credit in my first post.

if people didn't find excuses for themselves to exploit games, like by duplicating items and just play the game as it was intended we'd all be playing right now... sledge needs to put his hammer to all the god damn evil dupers' consoles and give them ****ed up patches that give their xbox's red rings...

People (not all) are going to exploit things of that nature if they're available and it doesn't matter what system they play on. You can get off your high horse now because that's probably why you sound so butt hurt.

And I change my original estimation of 6 hours (first post) to a sideways 8. That's right, infinite downtime. We're never playing again. Boom.
