Something you impatient types can check out while you wait for your pre-paid expansion: http://elderscrollsonline.com
Even if it wasnt in there control I expected the expansion to be late some how so no biggie. Tbh when they set the release date I moved it up on my calendar to Nov. 28th. So many people having trouble logging on is disheartening though..
- My kin was supposed to have the last pvp night before class changes and moors becoming mess for a while. Now we can have 1, maybe 2 and probably slightly less laggy since it's not weekend day anymore.
- 2 days should be enough to get me at least 5 more renown scrolls or at least 25 morale pots for the future.
- Really hate changes coming to one of my 85s (champ, thankfully not my main) so 2 more days to enjoy it in all its glory. Last 2 days to enjoy great versatility of my main (minstrel), too.
So what you're sayin then is... its possible Sapience lied or gave a half-truth? There are more issues, and Helm's Deep isn't ready for other only-related-to-Turbine reasons?
GUIZE, HALP! Found Gagmuk over here CONSPIRACY THEORIZING!
Does it really matter why the power loss happened? There are a lot of things that can cause the power to go out in an area. My power company can't keep the power on for more than a few weeks at a time (though typically very brief, the outages last just long enough to shut down all my electronics). Sure, the skies were clear in Boston. All the tornadoes were hundreds of miles away. But that doesn't mean the power can't go out for other reasons. I checked the national grid status online when the game went down and there were reports of outages in the Boston area.
Defend Sapience, ROFLMAO.. get in line. not 1 of my posts since this event occurred has blamed Sapience or Turbine. Plus, Sapience did not lie. the servers are back up but their are still some minor issues. hence the possible reason for the delay until Wed..
just takes common sense to come to the same conclusion. oh wait, what am i thinking this is the internet where common sense is no longer needed
I don't mind the delay if they need it for IT reasons (which seems to be the actual reason); I just didn't like spin they put on it about the tokens etc. etc. - trying to make it look like it was all about pleasing the players. Then we get posts saying everything is up and running when that doesn't seem to be the case. Bad PR just annoys me.
Hehe, if you think YOUR internet infrastructure is bad, you should see the state of affairs in Canada... We don't let competitors in, so the companies that own the monopoly aren't forced to lower prices OR make improvements. Our road bridges are also pretty bad - but at least they are working on fixing them. The issue with our power situation is an odd one... we sell power to the U.S. grid at a loss because our law says x% of the power in our grid needs to be "green" power - which is exponentially more expensive (i.e. we pay much more than we really should be)
Thanks for the update, I know you all are working very hard to get things up and running and done correctly. I know Turbine couldn't prevent the severe weather. The same series of storms that knocked out power killed 6 people. For heavens sake I can wait till Wed. for the expansion.
Eh... the real reason why the servers went down is cause they got depeessed from enduring the constant QQ and decided to end it all.
Fortunately for us, there were backups.

Honestly they should take the servers down for a month and overhaul the game. Right before an xpac is the perfect time. Give some free TP to shut up the Turbine fan club and all is good. Change as much as possible and put out a decent product instead of the tired old usual. They keep trying to put their donkey in the Kentucky Derby, and at some point they need to realize that it will never win.
oh, and just to point this out, Minecraft, while having a browser option is not really browser based (unless I fail to understand what you mean by browser based) but that is neither here not there since it does not matter to this discussion.
Thank goodness for power generators, too... I'm hoping I'll be able to get a teensy bit of playtime during the few hours we can afford to run it...
Almost half a million residents of Michigan (only one state in some 6-8ish states effected by the recent storm, a storm that has killed several people and dealt serious damage to a lot of places in a lot of states) are without power. I am one of them and may have the rest of the week without power. I'm GLAD that the HD xpac is delayed. That means I am not missing out (and as leader of a kin, I feel it is important that I stay as up to date on systems and gameplay and quest progression, etc. as much as possible) while the rest of my kin moves on ahead of me. I'm able to get online at my workplace very briefly, and it's my hope that our power generator at home is up to the challenge of giving me internet for brief periods of time, but for the rest of the week that may be the best I will get.
