Why does this game require a 5 hour down time every time it does a weekly maintenace? While gw2 can do it on the fly?

Cannot believe that people are really complaining about a weekly Maintenance. Shame on you. Stop comparing Games like BDO and GW2, use the Downtime for more useful things (at least it's still a Game...) and accept it.

Did anyone notice in the post he said Gw1 instead of Gw2 kind smart cause it tells OP who read his post

maybe because some people read the title of thread (that clearly says gw2) and the title is actually a question. no need to read a post when the question is in the title..

talk about not reading

Yup it does and what does he say in his post? Honestly even gw1 which is like 100 years old can do it on the fly .

So he asked the question in the title and went on to add more to that question in his post.

the keyword you are missing is "even"

so he asked about why gw2 can patch on the fly and EVEN an old game like gw1.

 

anyway I quoted someone that asked why people were talking about gw2 when he was ONLY talking about gw1 which he clearly wasn't

GW2 isn't an seamless open world, one is hard pressed to even call it an mmo. It's almost entirely made of instances and everything is separated, no world pvp or world interaction. It's on a big megaserver that is split into lots of channels which are split into hundreds of instances and moba-style battle arena's that probably have their own small shards that don't require maintenance.

Think of EVEonline which is the only true persistent open world game, they literally have downtime every morning to maintain their server (they don't even have channels or shards) so the price we pay for an actual breathing world is pretty small, you should be asleep anyways (unless you're an aussie)

 

EDIT: realized OP was talking about gw1...which is even less of an MMO than gw2! Seriously, how can you equate such an old and instanced game with BDO!

but they can trade T_T

You literally quoted me saying that the patch notes for BDO don't really tell you most of what goes on in the patch.

I mean I get it, you're just trying to stir the pot, I might not like GW2 but I don't pretend like it's not managed better, programmed better or far more popular. My gripes with GW2 have everything to do with it not being to my taste; but I didn't comment on that here.

GW2 is a great piece of software that went thru better programming and had way more success and hype than BDO. not even comparable with all the hype GW2 had and you're here giving vent to your mouth with nonsense without anything to back that up. kids least got their lollipop back and they can play their sexually arousing game for weeaboos lel

Inb4 no one even knows how these games patch their content at all, since 

most of that information is kept proprietary for this exact reason.

Competition.

What's all with those aggro kids those days, calling others "kids" while not being able to write one proper sentence without adding a few chlldish insults, and some huge overused boring memes. You see from 10 meters away who the kids are.

the claims that i quoted ya for 'saying that the patch notes for BDO don't really tell you most of what goes on in the patch' when its not that lel

You can see them in the patch notes.

Ranger damage "slightly adjusted" etc etc etc.

Hell Tamer got an across the board change that buffed damage but nerfed mobility and all the patch notes said was that they were "adjusted"

Plenty of examples of it if you actually read the patch notes.

Honestly even gw1 which is like 100 years old can do it on the fly 

GW1 has had approximately 30 hours of downtime over about 7 years. 
 

and this game in 2016 takes 5 HOURS every week to do a 1mb patch during PRIME TIME for some people....

Thanks duam

Really dude?

Your lack of experience with MMOs show through rather  clearly. 

Most MMOs take far longer than the 5 hours ( usually less ) that DAUM takes to patch BDO.

So, in closing, STFU kid.

Fyi: GW is a POS game compared to BDO. xD

If you are living in Asia, the middle east, Europe of Iceland, you have your respective servers to join (although I give you a pass for euro/Iceland since we share a forum) and the DT is still pretty late for both servers and a more than acceptable time to be asleep, so yeah...just aussies! Nice anti-American hostilities though! Maybe once other countries actually start paying for their own militaries the world WILL stop revolving around us :)

You sleep until 3pm? Because that's the time servers go back up in EU.

I think you should stop staying up until early morning hours if you sleep through the day afterwards. Don't you have stuff to do?

Aside from all the topic troll.

Well, nAnet just build a better technology to have an invisible maintenance ^^, originaly the GW1 Anet was full of tech guys, so it allowed them to build quite many very smart thing.

( Also, not saying, for somes choice, they think that in a very good way )

Honestly. If you can't find something productive or entertaining to do for a few hours. 

This patch time isn't your biggest problem.

GW2 uses a special server setup where they run instances of each map.  When they push out patch they push the update and run instances of patched and unpatched instances and then slowly close the unpatched instances.  They're basically running different versions of the same game at once.  This generally doesn't work with other games because they don't have instanced maps, they have entire worlds or in some cases continents.  And an entire world is a lot harder on server(s) than a few maps.  It's a lot easier to spread the load around in GW2 case.

u didnt even check the link with the gw2 programming conventiion that was given out

Watching it now.
Did you watch it?

This confirms some of peoples questions as to "Why this blah blah not like blah blah blah."

Assuming you know your shit from fits, the way he is explaining all of this confirms why Daums setup is not like theirs.

but alright.

 

Still watching at the moment.
