[Maintenance] Regular Maintenance - Extended

446 posts in this topic

Unfortunately maintenance needs to be extended by two hours to fix some network issues.
We like to apologize for the inconvenience.

Do you know if we will be getting patch notes soon or will it be after the extended maintenance?

Am I missing something? How are we getting screwed? Aren't people either at work or at school during the day?

The way I see it, Daum are located in Europe, so naturally they're going to do the maintenance during working hours.

but the ones that have no life and cannot be killed because they never leave their sweet Alienware unit idle will be impacted. Its just not fair they are no peasants

I have never seen this level of incompetence in a game developer in over 15 years of gaming. Not even the worst launch events have needed numerous days in one week to work on anything, let alone over 10 hours of maintenance like this.

Yes, there have been longer downtimes, but those were also planned and discussed WEEKS in advance.

This is unconscionable that you obviously DO NOT have solid plan BEFORE you start the maintenance. You will most likely require additional Maintenance time in 2 days to Fix or Correct whatever you failed to properly plan to do today.

Sucks to have longer maintenance, but I'm glad everyone is working so hard on making the game better for all of us. Thanks for all the hard work!

Yeah, though think of the oceanic crowd, who are all home from work/school whatever, cleaned up, had their evening meal, ready to sit down for a night of BDO and can't becasue they go down right at 7pm. And when daylight saving finishes soon, 6pm, so another prime time hour gone :/

I'm okay with this if it means I'll stop disconnecting and server lag will be resolved.

You obviously have played very few mmorpgs. This is nothing and happens all the time. World of Warcraft is known for having some of the worst patch/expansion days. Take a deep breath, clean your house, call family, play another game. Really, have some patience.

I sincerely hope there is some significant new content to warrant a 10 hour downtime.

They are located in the Netherlands. Do you really think they'd let their engineers wake up at 3am so EU isn't thaaat screwed?

Every company do this. Blizzard, NCsoft, Game Net and etc. I never saw before maintenance time at day. Some ppl work morning shift, some evening. So, that ppl can play only 6 from 7 days? Dont need say bullshit about real life. We pay for 7/7. We are understand, maintenance is important part of any MMO, but make it a night.
 BTW. Black desert required more time then 1-2h per day. Thanks for wasting my time.

Never? In over 15 years of gaming? Never? Really?! As far as game launches go I'd say BDO was pretty goddamn smooth. As far as maintenance goes, I'd say the devs are pretty quick to update their end users and keep everyone as informed as they can. I think you're being a bit dramatic, so you lose 1 day of playtime, whoopie doo, the game will still be there tomorrow. I think you need to relax, go watch a movie or something, geesh.

If your hardware is not good enough the quality might suck! Be sure to make regular visits to have it checked out! ;)


@The developers: Are you sure one of your guys did not just get stoned as a kite and accidently tripped over a power cord or something wasting the last 2hours of your maintenance, hence you guys having to extend it by 2hours? :P

The gameplay aspect of launch was stellar - keep in mind that the game has been running in other regions longer so it's not like this was an initial release and not comparable to other launches.  There were still a fair share of issues for pre-order folks - many of which have still not been resolved.  I've had a ticket open for 19 days personally.
