to start, servers take a whole lot longer to reboot than a pc. when you're dealing with 4+ independent multicore cpu's and easily 100+ gb ram, these things literally take minutes just to post, let alone fully boot. after a reboot and subsequent time to copy/move the huge amounts of data, there's the verification process that must be undergone to ensure all the data's proper placement and full engine integration. sandbox style games generally take a bit longer to implement, load, test, etc since it's an "all-in-one" package. i.e. there's no separation from area to area or map to map, to test individual sections like running a program in sandboxie, just like how so much of the game is loaded before needed (client side)

---at this point i'd like to add that i hope some kind of testing is done during this offline time, like the team actually logging in to make sure it wasn't gamebreaking and things are where they're supposed to be.

glitch/bug fix =/= buff.. O.o

BUg Fix doesn't get a short hand, like can not becomes can't, BUg Fix doesn't become BUF cuz you say or type fast

(2 cent)

Someone clearly can't understand sarcasm.

Yeah I do understand that server reboot takes time, but not that long. In company where I work as IT support (helpdesk), I'm the same office as other IT guys who handle servers. And those servers are used for every single credit card transaction in our country. Basicly every transaction made in this country goes trough that server. And when rebooting it or doing anything, it's never offline for more than 2 hours. And sometimes they need to transfer and backup few 100TB of data in all that time. Sure there are back up servers located around the country when this is happening so everything works as it should.

But it takes 2 hours to reboot, move 100TB or more data, check it, and check if everything is working.

That's why it seems odd to me that it takes 6 hours for simple game server to reboot and do few updates.

i did mention more than just boot time.. like data verification. maybe their servers don't run like other game servers so the cpu's on it are slower, thus longer boot times, verification times, data copy times.. and yeah, it's not a couple hundred terra's of info, but i'll tell you from experience, moving that much data isn't going to happen in an hour under normal circumstances. maybe they're using a usb device of some kind ( like a portable HDD) to perform updates since it's easier to just virtually unplug the device (dc it from network) than manually dc and have to further reset other hardware when said server needs to request a new ip... any number of possible reasons for the 6 hour+ maint time.

i also did say that i hoped someone was doing testing of some kind, any kind, whatsoever in game... this would at least justify a good 90 minutes of this block without question.

Someone clearly can't understand sarcasm. 

yeah, sorry.. i only just got home from work like an hour something ago. i work night shift and have to put up with the dumbest f--- faces this side of Uruguay..

i need something like a game and a fattie to chill out on on a daily

They are like always late on regular maintenance, but now manage to deliver in time with an actual content update.

Murphys law indeed...

(... but there is still hope for an emergency maintenance tonight, hah!)
