    Who the heck knows, with the problems they've been having lately. There was even speculation that the reason we weren't getting the warnings was b/c they were postponing the update on account of not being ready to deploy.

    Hey guys,

    It looks like there was a hiccup with our regularly scheduled messages. I apologise for not addressing this sooner-- I'm checking in with the responsible parties to see why they didn't go out, and we'll work on ensuring this doesn't happen again in the future.

    From your previous comments, your expectation is that the shards will go down at 8am PST since that's what they always do, and yet you poohpooh the expectation that there should be a warning preceding the shards going down, despite the fact that's what they always do. Not very consistent, are you?

    If it's rational to expect patterns to repeat themselves, then it's also rational to wonder if something's up when those patterns fail to appear.

    Ah yes.. To be honest, I forgot.... that I'd switched from server time to Eastern Australian Summer Time and so was killing bashing and maiming to my hearts content.

    Ah well..... just have to soulwalk when server comes back.

    And in that case... Where were the blasted warnings??? Been regular as clockwork since I started playing the game.

    And at 3.00AM EAST... my brain ain't at its greatest functionality-wise.

    Cool, thank you for looking into it.

    Not everyone reads these forums daily, I didn't even know there was a patch today. We had just finished Ahkane, and were on our way to Kaaz. Luckily it went down in between, hopefully I got the Ahkane credit. Not that big of a deal I suppose since there will most likely be more rounds of weeklies beings its wednesday but a few mins warning would be nice so you know your not in the middle of stuff when you login and get your rest exp

    Thats the thing, though, right? Its not daily, its just Wednesdays. You can definitely count on Wednesday mornings to be a bit tumultuous.

    I actually thought the servers had gone down for the day. But seeings there is a patch, it will probably go down a few times.

    Yes anyone that has been playing for a while should know that Wednesday at 8AM server time is the usual time for patches. But Trion DOES seem to have this odd desire to attract new players and make their lives in-game less confusing.

    Boggles the mind that people would come here and post that Trion shouldn't give an in-game warning for the benefit of brand new players or those that simply overlooked the time of day or the day of the week. Almost all of us know that they routinely give a warning and assumed it was just a glitch today - a glitch that the OP quite properly pointed out so they could check into it.

    Server went down, I'm assuming it stopped logging data. You won't be dead, but will likely get some mob's attention when you log in.

    Also, Rift death penalty is negligible.
