    I chalk it up to growing pains... Just as the outage hit, I was standing in Pirates' Roost admiring how cool the wind blowing in the leaves was and how the graphics and movement made the game more enjoyable.....

    What would be really awesome is if they fix the problem and it also fixes my hitching....

    ...I can dream.

    This is very unusual, but agreed, not great first impression for newer folks.
    Prior to last sunday's outage, I'd -never- seen the server go down at all (other than like, a blip but you could log immediately back in) in over two years of playing.
    This month seems to have brought connection issues, forum connectivity issues, and the glorious "crash when zoning" bug is back in full force at levels not seen since persistence.
    These are NOT typical and hopefully they can get it sorted soon so we can get on with our important daily killing and tending our crops....:X

    It really never happens honestly in the 2 years since we went to persistence even in the years where we had wipes every 3 months the server were up 24/7 and no outages. Hang in there this is definitely not the norm. I remember EQ2 launch and many other games that were constantly down. Hell EQ2 was down for months when SOE had that sercurity breach LOL.

    Server outages are rare but yeah 2 sundays in a row is kinda the suck.

    I think this might be the crux of the issue. I wonder if they even know it's down.

    haha - that would be awesome, the switch being the hitching problem for us. But then again my favorite quote: Do you really believe in miracles?

    I have found the webpage server status in pretty much every game never to be accurate. Heh but who knows.

    Yes, we are in the same boat. Though we are also understanding that it may be true that the switch/issue got significantly worse. Maybe last Sunday's downtime was the breaking point.
    What I'd be more worried about is why is it happening on a specific/time.

    It could be a script/configuration setting on the switch (provided it's a managed switch - which I hope for our sake it is).

    About as enjoyable as wind blowing leaves can be at 19fps : )

    The problem with this issue is, that theoretically the switch is "online" its behaving faulty. But any monitoring will still get a response that its online. Hard situation for monitoring systems.

    We all can agree that this is a very rare issue. But also a rare issue needs planned handling.

    I think all of us who work in IT are shaking our heads right now...

    At the very least there should be communication about the issue and the expected timeframe for fixing it.

    For those who aren't aware, Atos is looking at it now, says the server is fine, something about the way login queue is handled.
