<p>I think it would be a good idea if there was some dedicated spot where we could see if the Battle Grounds Servers are up or not. >_></p>

<p>TBH this should've been a common sense kinda thing.  Why isn't there somewhere to see if BG is up or not?  Often the queue is still running while there isn't any BG going it seems.   People are forced to ask in channels which only further irritates others.  Please give us a reliable way to see for ourselves if BG is running or not.</p>

<p>You should be receiving an error message if you try to queue for battlegrounds and they are not available.</p><p>If this isn't working properly we will look into it.</p>

<p>ok. There have been times when I've sat in the queue for longer than I ever have when it was working only to see people ask in channels or ask myself and find out they are actually down.  Other times I have gotten a message and not been allowed to queue up.</p>

I que up, go harvesting or tradeskilling or solo questing, and then I get a message.. join the battle or whatever, and it says its unavailable..</p><p>Im on Runnyeye.. Did they find a solutions to BG for all servers, or is our BG only for splitpaw and runneye? if so, wont we ever be able to actually fight vs true PvP' players to learn from their experience?</p>

<p>I would be happy with anything that could tell me for certain if bg's are up or not without having to queue and wait forever(waste time) or ask in channels.  Fix this!!</p>

<p>It's better to wait more so they can fix this than for them to rush it and reproduce crash/drop errors from a few days ago (before the fix which then allowed the duping problem)</p>

I think the Exploit thing that has happened recently has caused SOE to pull the plug on the EU BG's till they are able to get their crap sorted , and get it fixed. I was dissappointed to see that there was no "Offical" posting about why we cannot access BG's. I have not been able to find anything from SOE about EU BG's over the last couple days.  Mind you I may ahve bene looking in the wrong places on the Forums.</p><p> I did notice that there is a patch or Server reset coming out in another 2.5 Hours. If we are really really super lucky we may get to play in the Sand pit called BG's. I hope so, as frankly atm BG's is the main reason I came back to EQ2. I was dissappointed to see that due to the differant patch days for the US/Eu servers, EU players would not be able to play with the peeps on US Servers.</p><p> I do hope in the future that SOE will seriously consider making <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Servers Patches/Resets the same day for all Servers</strong></span>. For me this would make sense because then the people that play on the EU Servers would hopefully be able to play BG's against people on the US Servers. Frankly though I think I am getting rather Hopefull that this will happen.</p><p> On a side note though......Runneye, and Splitpaw people should serioulsy consider organising their own Cross Server Raid BG's weekly or even fortnightly basis. I am not sure how feasable it would be. But Experiance tells me that weekends are Prime Times for any Servers. I think if most people knew that every week/fortnight we had a Raid BG or even a 12 vs 12 BG happening then we'd be able to slowly get the tokens together for the BG Armour, and Jewlery. What do you guys think about that?</p><p> Feasable or not??</p>

Why did they start patching our EU servers at the same time as US servers, I don't even play BGs myself!"</p>

I understand this is apparently a work in progress and will require some "fixing". But seriously it wouldn't be that hard for someone to take 10s to post a heads up. Quite frankly I think thats just common courtesy.</p>

<p>I agree with Meph.  It's not like it takes a much time to update the community and it's a common courtesy.  Also, I've been trying to keep this thread alive until they put something in for us to see if BG is up or not.  Screw the error i'm supposed to get when queueing which hasn't worked but maybe a couple times.  Otherwise i'm left to queue with no bg even running.  We need this fixed.</p>
