Going to be a while before I get log in tonight but with another 3 hour downtime today I would expect something got changed. Nothing in the update notes though.Hints? Comments? Outright devulgence of information? Many thanks <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

An expansion is coming out in less than a month, I would put money on the downtime having something to do with that.

I hate it that Sony doesn't bother to tell us what the downtimes are for any more. It doesn't need to be a lot of detail, even just a 'fixed an issue with tradeskills' for example would be fine. Stop treating us like we're either too dumb to understand or it's too dangerous to admit there's been a problem.

<p>Nothing outwardly cosmetic changed in today's hotfix, hence there being no input to give on it.  Sorry for any possible confusion and issue!  Now for your regularly scheduled playtime...</p><p><img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />~Gnobrin!</p>

The servers could be brought down for any number of reasons including the new expansion coming out like the post above said. More then likely its a data structure change such as adding tables/modifying the underlying database for the expansion or the new station communications. If it was a fix or performance improvement, they'd be eager to tout it.Just because the servers are coming down without a specific communication as to why doesn't mean they're hosing us.

<p>I'll put money on the patch involving nerfing the droprates in the Shard of Fear.  They like to do that within a week of patching any new zone in.</p>

Look at the news...there are horrendous fires in San Diego County.
