STORMS is still for a moment, as "any Player" cast "any spell" on "any target" in "any zone"

 

Hi everyone and especially SmokeJumper,

as you wrote in a previous post (http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=501811), you mention that the Storms server has been upgraded somewhere between August and the end of October, tell me if I'm wrong but to upgrade any server you have to down it for a couple of hours no? (I did not mention any downtime during this period, again tell me if I'm wrong)

I'm posting today on the official forum because none of you that I PM'ed before gave me an answer...

Is it really that hard for you to admit that you never did that you promised?The lag makes the game unplayable for all the community, and ruins all our pleasure.

If you just don't believe me, come on ! just log on the French server at any raiding time and you will see by yourself.

I only have a question for you, expecting to get the answer as quickly as possible:

     Have you a real ETA of when the server will be upgrade?

If you just don't care about this server, just merge it with an other which has been upgraded ! The community will thank you !

Minxs on Laggy Server

LOL this looks almost like a russian thread SMILEY

Anyway +1

I really doubt Storms was ever upgraded.

I play both on Storms and Everfrost, when Everfrost was upgraded we got à 6-8h downtime. Even with our low population, I'm pretty sure someone would have noticed if Storms went offline for 6h+ without announcement (just to be clear, we never got a downtime notice for sever upgrade)

Now, I'm no database expert and maybe Storms was small enough to not warrant a 6+h downtime... BUT... on Everfrost the change was quite visible just looking at your group/raid DPS and I didn't see anything like that on Storms.

Pourrait-on savoir au moins quelle est la différence de matériel entre le serveur de storms et les autres serveurs. A red name could honestly tell to us what is the difference between the storm server hardware and the others

Just a reminder folks, we do remove any posts that are unconstructive and spam.  Spam is communication without meaningful content, and does not add to the conversation. Some examples are: +1, first, bump, /agree, etc.

Welcome, new numbered mod. Just a reminder as your # suggest you're rather new here : Storms is the french server, thus a good chunk of its population doesn't speak english well - or at all - else they would have left this sorry excuse of a server a long time ago. 

The +1 were not really spam but more an indication that the posters weren't fluent enough in english to post additional detail but wanted to say that this situation affect them too. And this, in itself, IS constructive. If only a couple people complains about "server lag", the server is probably not at fault. the 40ish "+1" you deleted showed it was a general - more likely server related - issue rather than problems on the user's end (Storms is the smallest server, 40 ppl is about 10% of Storms population at peak time   )

We already Pm'ed SmokeJumper, technique support team and some developpers, but we never got any answer from them. The petition was an other way to point this server issue.

But again the only answer that we get is "You're spamming, stop it".

Mod-# could you give your keyboard to someone who has a proper answer to formulate?

Regards,

Minxs

LOL !!!

Stop joking fu... SOE's Modos !!!!!!!!

When it comes to moderate you are present, but to meet the expectations of any one in the Strom server there is no one!

Delete my post, ban me all you want that does not rise to the fact that in addition to being incompetent you are trying to hide it !!!

The french people on storms are tired of YOUR LIES, the server was not upgarde and it kills our pleasure of playing, it's all !

Storms is at a critical state now, it is depleted of its population and with the recent divide with the US servers, i read a recent trend of people transfering over to AB or EF.

Yet, the lag in raid zones is unbearable, making part of the eq2 experience (to my opinion the best part of the game) unable to be rightfully enjoyed. Wiping because of hudge lag, is a cruel disapointement i don't feel deserved, especially for a community that has held long in this game, without any marketing or communication around the game, pushing the server towards its actual state, a dying server.

I guess there are several options to this really annoying issue. Replace the old server with a shiny one; yet, we all know that would't be worth, not for the very few remaining die hards of Storms. No.

The second option, would be to merge us. I know this have been discussed and adressed. I'm not quite sure why it didn't receive any positive feedbacks or even better, a constructive decision - an obvious merge. Anytime i log on my toons located on Splitpaw i'm amazed at how the game is actually alive; from the channels to the grouping and even pick up raids. My characters on Permafrost also witness this activity i somehow envy, and miss a lot on Storms.

I know a few people here are reluctant of being merged with a server not speaking their main language. But truth is, Splitpaw has a french community, polish community, and i even see norwegian's recruitement messages. Personnaly, and i belive it's the case for the major part of us, i would love to be merged to an active server and i strongly belive we will adapt very quickly for those not ready yet for a change.

Please try to understand our position now, there's more departures than arrivals + returns, and in order to recruit for a raiding guild nowadays, we sadly have to wait for another raid guild to split up so we can scavenge its loose members.

The population has been decreasing for years now and as for today, we stand at a desperate state. I dare to hope that very soon, you're going to merge us with Spltipaw since a server upgrade on Storms will definitly not attract more players, and in a business perspective i can clearly understand that it is not going to happen anytime soon.

Regards, from a die hard french player that would love to play on an active server, no matter the language spoken (well not any asian please)   SMILEY

Dolorian.

I would agree with Dolorian and would appreciate a feedback from a Dev concerning a merge with an other server like Splitpaw.

What are the points that you are considering when you decide to merge two servers? Is it just about population?

Don't you think that Storms meets the requirements for a merge?

If you decide to not upgrade the Storms server, please take in consideration the fact that you have the opportunity to merge us with the european server, Splitpaw.

Answer welcome.

I think we would have realised it if our server had been upgraded. Y'know, the little "8 hours downtime" everybody else got while we never had anything more than 2 hours.

Storms should have been upgraded, it would be nice to actually get that upgrade one day. Well, for those that will still be there :/

What's the point in having a forum, community managers and what not if you don't answer the concerns of your community? I mean if this forum is as useful as to have a mod come in here and delete most of the posts then decomission this service and give us the spare server as an addition to storms old piece of crap.

How can I appreciate the game when I'm supposed to cure my group and my spells proc 2 seconds after clicking them. Hmm group down ! WTG hard mode... Please come on and see for yourself...

I mean from a business perspective I fully understand that it makes no sense to upgrade and spend several k$ for a community that is down to what? 400 people? But hey, guess what, you're offering the service and, we, costumers are paying for it.

So if you don't want to invest that much $ because you feel there's no return on investment then please it's time for you to consider a merge. Sure you will lose some of your french players, but in the long run I'm pretty sure you will lose more if not upgrading. Not to mention that merging will greatly reduce your operating costs and no translation -> more cash for you

Err.. wait a minute, didn't you just sold all your european player base to PSS1?

One week has passed and no answer. It seems that Storms population doesn't deserve any consideration.

...Or gimme around 150 free server transfert tokens for each 3 or 4 raidstuffed toons my guildies have to move free this ruined server.

I know my guildies will be much better on an active et non-laggy server. The main trouble we met was the cost of this. And you know what, we are not the rothchild family to give you around 2000$ on this affair.

In my opinion, we've got 2 ways of issues :

Upgrading storms server, and kill the regional locking system.

Upgrading storms server will be a nice argument to get back the french community from the other "poor HL content games" ( we bump, we +1, we /agree because we do not have any else to say about this, we just use this only for solidarity )

Think about the rogues who cannot pass more than 1CA per each auto attack in raid.

Think about the healers going crazy about curing an AOE damage who kill the entire raid on the second tick.

Think about my 100% spell recovery turns in -400% on each HM fight i practice.

Think about casual players who spam the LFG tag all day long without any response.

Think simply about raid/instance guilds, at the moment, that is very difficult to keep our members just for this 2 facts.

Just like said many people here, maybe we are around 500 active players, but we signed for the same service and paying for that.

So please, do your job, please contact the right person who can do the right thing, and the entire french community will thank you ( and maybe, give you more money! )

(and sorry for my crap english by the way )

+1 !!!

(let's see if someone's actually reading this and my post gets deleted)

Or as Brasse said on EQ2's facebook page (02/27/2012) : "Our community is our top priority and rest assured, all of your concerns have been heard."
