    Blizzard is probably not the best choice in examples right now. 18 months of no new content and then another 7 months before they released their final content patch for this expansion. Then all of the content was just grind quests and a new raid. They've been dropping the ball for the better part of 2+ years now.

I can name a few that I used to play, and they had almost 2-3 days of server outages or constant crashes and they were non f2p, just be happy Trion pays attention to their best testers who are us player base, to find the bugs, and glitches and the devs can get to it and get the proper fixes out, without us they would not know about most the bugs in game.

    Developers and trion game testers can only do so much with the time they have, they can not be 100% perfect 100% of the time, they are Human just like us and make errors just like us.
    Nice strawman.

    Btw - This is not the TBA server patch, that is actually still in the works according to Ocho, therefore the servers will most likely be coming down again later today at some point.

    Actually, they are the perfect example of "when its done". They are taking their time to get it right.

    Was there something added in Rift 3.3 that wasn't grindy? But that is a whole other topic.

    Could have been worse. Since i (and you) got nothing better to do right now another Bliz
    story. There we were in Mt Hyjal during BC, guild raid. pulled the second Boss and right at
    that point (i'm not even kidding) "5 minutes to server restart".
    So 25 mins is a nice big warning ;)

    Except they didn't get it right. 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2 were all followed up with a "known issues" list on the forums on top of three days of server maintenance after 6.0 and 6.1. Phasing in the Garrisons was completely broken for the first three days of WoD, and still had issues intermittently for about a month following the expansion. 6.2 still had issues when it launched but didn't bring the servers down.

    While we're on the subject, lets talk about the features cut from this expansion. That list is massive and absolutely unacceptable. The thing is that you cannot look me in the eyes and tell me that it is okay for WoD, which has had the biggest development team the game has ever seen, to take 18 months to produce while the live game was left to stagnate and then the expansion had been mutilated and mangled so badly that all players were doing was sitting in their Garrisons playing farmville, pokemon, and raiding once a week.

    IMHO phasing was always messy in WoW. I remember doing the argent crusade jousting
    dailies at ICC and those damn huge elite scarabs kept bleeding through. Then off course
    you have the inability to help friends who are in a different phase. I actually think Lotro does
    phasing much better than WoW, you can see players in other phases, just not NPC and
    possibly altered structures.

    BTW if Trion wants us to stop talking about other games just start the shards back up *wink
    wink nudge nudge*

    They are, but not with Rift. The other games' devs are on the stream (Trove, Defiance, Devilian, and ArcheAge).

    No Rift? Why no Rift? Nothing good to talk about? Those other games, I just can't get into. It's Rift and only Rift...

    And as I go through Rift withdrawal, I may be cured of it. I hope not. I'm actually doing other things.

    I checked the log file for anything since I was logged in at 7:30am PST and nothing shows up in the log file. Maybe some servers got the message but Hailol didn't.

    And if this wasn't the TBA, then I'm shaking my head as they could have combined both then to lessen the downtime, now we're going to be down again.

    The quality of the game is getting worse IMHO, first the fiasco of the AH fees, then not refunding purchases of the increased costs for the recipes, to stealing achievement points from us. They rehash old dungeons so they don't have to do any new work on the game, and yet we still have issues that are ages old. From bounty mob issues to zone events that don't spawn.

    Probably because if they ran a Rift stream right now, the ENTIRE chat would be one endless cavalcade of:

    *takes a deep breath*

    "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU RUNNING A STREAM FOR WHY AREN'T YOU FIXING THE GAME ETC ETC OMG THE GAME IS DYING ETC ETC ETC I DEMAND COMPENSATION AND BLOOD AND TEARS AND A PONY ETC ETC ETC I THINK OCHO MAKES UP ELOS BY THROWING DARTS AT A BOARD ETC ETC ETC THEY CHANGED SOMETHING NOW IT SUCKS ETC ETC ETC THEY DIDN'T CHANGE THIS OTHER THING AND IT STILL SUCKS ETC ETC ETC"

    *takes another deep breath*

    "AND ANOTHER THING..."
