Please find specific details pertaining to the maintenance below:


Purpose
The purpose of taking the servers offline is to perform weekly maintenance, continue localization support, and implement new events and apply adjustments on our database EU centers.


Patch Notes

  • Apply adjustments to our database EU centers, which requires more time and extended the maintenance.
  • Continued localization fixes (VO included).
  • Halloween events incoming, brace yourself!


Duration
Approx. ~6 hours for EU, ~4 hours for NA.


Affected Users
During the maintenance, the Skyforge servers will be inaccessible to all players.



While waiting, why not catch the latest news about Skyforge or chat with other players via the Aelinet!

Why does it take 2 hours longer for EU?

Why does it take 2 hours longer for EU?

Because the EU players have been the most vocal in pointing out the games faults, its their way of punishing us !

Why does it take 2 hours longer for EU?

Because we don't get any service at all so they figure they could stomp on us a bit more!

Hey everyone,


The maintenance is extended by 2 hours in Europe as we'll be doing some work on our databases.

A few words about the Halloween Event as well:
This is the first scripted event on Skyforge. It is not a promotion, such as the Law and Order or Grand Prix promotional events. You'll have the chance to try it tomorrow, so be sure let us know your thoughts in the feedback section after you give it a shot!

On a final and less pleasant note, flaming comments have been edited.

Since apparently enough, servers aren't connected when can we expect european players to be treated with the decency of having maintenance times during the night or off-hours?

Hugo, any chance you could elaborate on the "first scripted event" ? You dont have to say exactly BUT do you mean an actual event we play/interact in ???

Sounds to me like we're going to have some event specific quests/missions. Probably costume rewards

Hmm. Work on databases you wrote. Finally. Hope it will fix some Aelinet issues. I was thinking, but pumpkin head as headwear or skeleton costume as costume probably not coming for now. I and i know some other ppl who would actually pay for that. Would be funny to run around as skeleton.

I tried to avoid this, because I was hoping that it'll be like this for only a couple times, but ..

IF if takes 4 hrs (usually) or 6 (!?) in this case to do the maintenance .. Why can't you schedule it for night time for EU players? Even if it's one day later than US for example. Same thing working for Blizzard, EU and US and rest, doesn't get it in the same time. Rather pay attention to players and schedule maintenance accordingly especially if you have these ridicliously long maintenences. 6 hrs really? Like what, hardware upgrades or what lol? Patching, restarting and setting up network shouldn't take longer then 2-3 hrs, 4 top if something major. But looks like 4 is the minimum timeframe here :\

Summary : why can't you schedule maintenance for night / very early hours? EVEN IF A DAY LATER THAN US. Like do the maintenance on Thursday betweet 3AM and X (whetever when ready), a day later than US. No would be be mourning about that in my opinion. Please listen to players!

The problem would be that EU would be ~6-9hrs ahead of NA patch-wise, meaning we could play new content before NA could. Also pushing the server maintenance to around midnight/night for EU like you suggest but patching both sides (NA/EU) at the "same" time would mean that NA would get their patches in the evening when the majority of players is online due to work. It is much better to patch EU at the current time, because most players should be at work at that time anyway and NA players get their patches very soon in the morning before anyone's out for work.

Read it again .. I didn't say to patch at the same time, exactly the opposite (schedule it based on local time). Secondly, pointed out that it would be better at night time, even a day later than US (in this case get it on Thursday from 2-3AM or so ..). And believe it it's very annyoing if some is at home, and basically can't play for the whole day (9am to 3pm). 

Night time patches always better, for everyone, where ever they are. That's not really a question :)
