It could be a ninja patch of some stuff... They dont announce every bug fix if they are small. SO it could be that or they ****** the server ^^

You'll be lucky. And if they don't fix it today it will probably be like it all weekend aswell.

You'll be lucky.

I know since Patch 2.0 CA member posts are rarely seen,
I call this "Duck & Cover"...
Since this is no ordinary bug but an urgent problem, they will hopley comment (better fix) it soon.
Obviously its a server problem, so they are in charge to do something...


And if they don't fix it today it will probably be like it all weekend aswell.
Lets hope they will cancel weekend for fixing this issue if it can´t get fixed by today.

ur saying my comments are trolling comments? fair enough.

but you would be mad to say that their ur comment or his comment were any better. this thread is pretty redundant anyways.

Confused Johnny
05-20-2011, 03:01 PM
Even if it was urgent issue, as CA have mentioned they have different people in different departments for different things, so someone from community development (lol) or whatever could easily have given warning that clan servers would be down, even if they couldnt give timescale! If it problem out of the blue, same thing applies, a quick heads up doesnt take 5 minutes, but it seems this is par for the course!

Hehehe, in situations like this i think back to all the marketing **** months before s2tw release, when they were banging on about how awesome MP would be, how they looking to develop the community, dedicated MP team etc and i think wow, i preffered it when MP in TW actually worked. Sod all this clan **** which they dont have a clue how to run, give us a consistent, working MP for gods sake!

They could have atleast put a news ticker on the the multiplayer interface. Like most games i know of. so that way they can update online players immedietly, if there's a server maintenance.

As someone said above, matchmaking is still working as normal.
However no tokens (which is a big grr for me) and no influence points.

Can anyone varify if armor can be unlocked still?

I'd suggest everyone do battle list while it gets popular, at least you can chose night and rain and stuff you normally cant do.

Profane

Done 5 battles while servers are down. No armour, no tokens, no influence and very little xp..?

Getting silly now the amount of times it's been down with no word from CA and the weekend approaching.

More annoying that our clan map battle had finally turned to a decent fight over the provinces and now we can't do anything :(

every game has a lot of serious issues in both single and multiplayer, but only total ******s can release it before fixing at least the major ones.

No clan tokens is the worst part. What am I supposed to do when I get my good units to level 8 later? Just let them get a ****py normal skill? Lolno! I need more tokens, slowly running out. >.<

Chris lol
05-21-2011, 10:54 AM
Yeap i bought the game for the MP. And its not even working.

g freaking g

I expect an explanation and an apology from CA. And a proper one, not craig posting "whups" in some obscure thread. A proper announcement containing an apology to the MP community.

Never going to happen though. In league of legends when the servers go down or have issues all players affected get riot points (which cost money) as a compensation. CA could take an example from that. Again though: never going to happen xD

It's new stuff for them, but hardly new in the game industry. It's not as though multiplayer online gaming was invented last year.

I can understand being annoyed by not getting tokens because they are nice to earn for your vets. The thing I *can't* understand is why so many people care if a ladder goes down that was broken/flawed anyway same with the clan meta? And people caring about stats not being updated as well with the flawed p2p system? I just don't get it...

I play MM for the enjoyment of random opponents, random maps, and tokens, not a broken ladder and flawed clan meta. If there were dedicated servers with a good ladder that wasn't just a grind to the top then I could understand people complaining when it goes down without a word as to why.

People are paying money for operational, reliable and functional product. When they buy some multiplayer game, they expect to have it working. If is not working as described in the manual, then the producer must not advertise this product as "multiplayer". It is clear - gamers pay money to have ALL features, working, not just some of them.

I've posted in a few threads to this effect. Just to let you know we're having a few problems with the multiplayer servers. We're working on fixing them but it might be Monday before they're fully operational again.

actually, a good deal of people, myself included didn't expect to get a totally functional or reliable product on release day (as sad as that fact is, such is the state of the industry). what i didn't expect was a slow and difficult and thus far largely unsuccessful patching process akin to what was experienced in ETW, especially since their planned features for this game didn't seem all that ambitious.

but your point is taken and well received.

A fast response on this topic was rightly expected,
b/c its a global game killer and obviously a CA server problem.
Instead we get a standart statement (wich is ok, but) with 24 hours delay ?
Shame on you for this great support...

BTW look at similar issues before, they were commentet much earlier,
of course with the standart pharase "We are aware of the issue and working on it!

Sure you can do something else,
but don´t judge people as "addicted" who are looking forward to play this game on the weekend,
b/c otherwise they have not enough time (work the whole week you know). Thats a stupid derivation dude.

So I am annoyed of the endless MP problems this game has, and IMO its CAs MO in dealing with the community

do you work harder if your client insults you? or maybe if he accepts some circumstances and is patient. and no i dont say you have to be patient over 20 years and some pressure is incorrect.

Maybe I undestand than what you wanna say....


do you work harder if your client insults you?

Hmm let me see, when I release an unfinished/broken product I wouldn´t wonder about complains from customers.
If it was my fault (not the companys) I even would get fired....


or maybe if he accepts some circumstances and is patient.
and no i dont say you have to be patient over 20 years and some pressure is incorrect.

So why are we debating it ?
I asked "nicely" for a simple comment on Friday,
its clearly CAs fault not to answer the community faster.
So again, no wonder that insults are the result.

But enough of this time wasting blabla,
you have your point as I have mine.

Soooooo simple to do, no promises made and the community doesn't feel ignored as I assure you we all do. I do appreciate you finally informing us though.

05-22-2011, 01:13 PM
@CraigTW Thanks for the info, as you can see we, the players appreciate every little info on whats going on. Just a few sentences can stop or even better prevent much of the whining and flaming. We have some decent players here who do _a lot_ of community work for you. They tell others that the game in fact _is_ well balanced, they give info to new players on how to deal with tech probs and become better players. Last but not least they encourage many players to keep the faith in this great game.

Don`t let this people down. When tech probs occur, no prob sir s*** happens _but_ tell us whats going on please, the earlier the better. Just a few sentences can do wonders, sir.
