Regular Maintenance - 9 March

295 posts in this topic

Why does it still take an entire 5 hours (or more) just for maintenance? 

Moving fixes and patches from a Staging Environment to the Production Environment shouldn't take that long.

What is the main bottleneck?

Is it going to take 5 hours every week?

The last one is a fuc king good question, cause it's going to be akward if it's weekly.

The 7 days discount for outfits did end today, so maybe they are adding or doing something more with the cash shop. Atleast I hope so. Their first weeks of the game hasn't been the best so maybe there might be alot to fix. It'll be done in 1 hour anyways. I don't want to seem like Daum fanboi, but atleast the time for maintenence seems reasonable.

I'm an Aussie and maintenance falls just after I get home from work so I spend the 5 hours doing housework, bathing and brushing pets and catching up with friends/family. Doing all of that now means I am free to play at a later time :)  Can't please everyone and I just look forward to playing tomorrow.

Do people not realize this is their first maintenance, they have to solve an abundance of problems on the servers. Its sort of reasonable to see why its 5 hours its not that big of a deal, like they are literally trying to make the game better so they have people to play. Like it seems people would rather them half --s it.

As for when they started maintenance time it would be incredibly difficult to actually get a time that would work well with both EU/NA servers since there times are the opposite.

It's the second one. The first one has been 8 hours long.

Hey try to go to the folder where the game is installed and right click on the launcher -> properties ->  compatibility -> change settings for all users -> check the run program in compatibility mode -> windows 7

also go into the bin64 folder and do the same to the BlackDesert64 file

this should help out with the issue :) and good luck!

Don't care about Pearls. Maybe if I could stay logged in long enough to spend some Pearls that would be a different story...

Because it's the same server, so you cannot separate NA from AUS, the better argument is why no AUS server, which is a flawed argument in and of itself.

Or if you're suggesting taking down the servers in NA during prime time, you'd be out of your mind to think that upsetting an entire population of NA players just to make the time zones mesh better for Aussies would fly, I get that you're important, you deserve fair treatment too, but maybe Wednesday is a good night to play some Stardew Valley or something. Just understand that AUS is not actually part of the NA time zones and gets shafted, every time, because it's just not worth the effort to please a more dedicated set of gamers.

MMO's are continuous service servers with no functional part of them capable of going offline without interruption to a large number of players. Stack that on top of a it being server authoritative structure it's just not possible for live maintenance to small MMO servers. Only reason WoW, Eve, and GW2 can handle such actions as "live" maintenance is because they have multi-servers with server crossover, where players can, on the fly, be placed on another server while their server is taken offline. Leading only the database server to needing to be always online, which can have duplicates and live backups to stop authentication errors and service interruptions (and possibly trick it into allowing maintenance).

So yeah, as much as you might imagine it's as simple as "make it work" life doesn't work that way. Fact is the only ones that don't make sense is taking EU and NA down at the same time, but it's simply because that's when they're at work. In order to please Aussies it would likely require them being taken down in EU prime time, which would mean they would be at work with the full team for maintenance after hours. Which honestly would mean mistakes and an even longer downtime, which leads to planning a 12-16 hour work day for most of them.

I don't agree here, i think compromise can be made simply by pushing the maintenance back a few hours, if you took the servers down at 10pm -3am aus brisbane time it would be 7am - 12pm in usa, 12pm - 5pm... well something like that. The current time is only good for one region, USA, its ok for EU but its completely bad for Australians that work. I would have thought the times i mentioned is a good compromise for all regions. As it is I don't even get to play the game on the day of maintenance. Maintenance is 5 hours but because i cannot play it that night it means I haven't been able to play the game for roughly 44 hours 

example: play game on 8/3/2016 until 10pm, go to bed, go to work, come home at 6pm, eat dinner, can't play game because its gone down for maintenance, go to bed, go to work, come home next day at 6pm, eat dinner play game.... 44-45 hours.

I don't seem to have downloaded anything... It was a pure server maintenance, no patching, right?

I don't have any issue with the time frames picked (This would upset a part of the players regardless of how the maintenance is picked), but seriously...It takes 5 hours for a 'Weekly maintenance' that ignores a large part of the issues encountered on this game...? When there will be a critical issue and the servers will be down...Should we expect 5 days for a fix ? 

Too many issues with this game already...A lot of missing information that should be provided (already asked by a lot of players) ... Patch notes that can be composed even by a kid ...(Awakening stuff in the shop when there's no awakening yet lol ) ... Professional publishing company...DAYUM (You should raise the prices on everything including game, shop items etc...I wonder how much will this continue on...)

Well i was curious about the first maintenance 5 hours is very steep but you need what you need. But if it goes on more than that then its ridiculous

because all the people want to do is catch the fish and play with ponies. xD

Yet again Aussies get screwed with server maintenance times - our entire evening time taken up with maintenance.

Never fails with MMOs they always pick our prime time for playing :(

Sorry dude, but it is EU and US times. It would be a groundbreaker if they had Aussie servers mind
