<p><span style="font-size: small;">It would be nice to have an update on things ... going on 16+ hours of downtime now.</span></p><p><span style="font-size: small;">Thank you.</span></p>

Gorpier 12-06-2011 09:36 PM

<p>I agree.  Its odd really that they gave so much information this morning and early afternoon for some of us, then nothing for nearly 5 hours.</p>

Reiella 12-06-2011 09:36 PM

<p>There is a button on the main page of the forum, it says twitter.  You can get fairly current updates there.</p><p><a href="https://twitter.com/everquestii">https://twitter.com/everquestii</a></p><p>Most recent one is : <span style="background-color: rgba(165, 3, 0, 0.0976563); color: #444444; font-family: Arial, 'Helvetica Neue', sans-serif; font-size: 15px; line-height: 19px;">We still do not have an updated ETA for the servers yet. We're very sorry.

as of 25mins ago they tweeted no ETA

Axelia 12-06-2011 09:37 PM

<p>SOmeone stayed up late last night and made the new build time was 22:28:52 on SOE build 8295L which means that there were changes made after the beta server was taken off line.</p><p>Early this morning on 12/6 everyone got jolt cola and began working on what is history making changes. (my guess)</p>

Juravael 12-06-2011 09:38 PM

<p><span style="font-size: small;">Yeah, I watched all of the webcasts this morning and they were on top of things but there has not been much after that.. a producer's letter posted by Smokejumper is the last "Dev Post" listed and that was hours ago.</span></p>

Grumble69 12-06-2011 09:39 PM

<p>I seem to remember doing something like this back in May....</p>

Melodee 12-06-2011 09:40 PM

<p>Remember GU 13 i think it was, was 28 hours!</p>

Xianthia 12-06-2011 09:45 PM

<p>I understand to go to other websites to get the info, but really aren't these the official forums? shouldn't they at least update something/anything on this website?</p><p>Not saying that the information is not out there.</p>

aronoth 12-06-2011 09:45 PM

Adamsmith31 12-06-2011 09:46 PM

<p>its computers things never go as plan unless you plan way in ahead and clone the servers and test out what your doing in the background before making everything go live</p>

Arianah 12-06-2011 09:47 PM

<p>Heck, not everyone even finds the info on the official forums, even when it's posted in several areas lol <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>If you attempt to manage peoples expectations they start having expectations.<img src="/eq2/images/smilies/49869fe8223507d7223db3451e5321aa.gif" border="0" /></p>

Xianthia 12-06-2011 09:49 PM

<p>rofl that made me laugh because it's so true! but at least on the site I'd have a chance at finding it :/</p>

nosha1214 12-06-2011 09:49 PM

<p>Watches all the "kiddies" where is my cookie, I want it now!  Yet we yell at our own for being so demanding LOL!</p>

I made your post a little bigger intentionally on the offchance that they might see it, I know they couldn't care less and I am sure they are doing everything they can to get the servers up so the SC shop can begin selling masters.</p>

<p><span style="color: #00ffff;">Thanks also.  Forgot about Twitter updates.</span></p>

Axelia 12-06-2011 09:53 PM

<div>If you all dig back into around GU 13 I think you will find a post by a red name at around 18 hour point where things did not go well. Just take a deep breath and let it out slow. If there is a major problem they will update.</div><div>Enjoy a bit of the forums.</div>

<p>SOE has never been very good at keeping their players informed when "unexpected" things happen to throw off their timelines.</p><p>Although we all have enough experience by now to know that doing a revamp of freeport, an "expansion" and free to play change all at the same time was not going to work so well for them.  Anyone who expected this back up for the original 2 hour time length was hopelessly delusional and the realists among us told ourselves things like "hmm....8 hours for freeport....4 for the expansion....10 for free to play....2 hours to fix the website errors....so maybe midnight.</p>
