  • 10 Hour Downtime: EA Fails

    Forum Link

    Servers will be down until 3am (I assume EST) in America/9am France.

    Can anyone explain why it will take 10 hours to do server maintenance? It takes me less time to completely reformat/reinstall my home PC, including updates.

        I think we are misreading this. Dice surely would have noted this themselves if they had planned to be out that long. The indications they have given are they are rolling out a new server update and removing basic EA servers temporarily to lessen the load. The master server being down is an unexpected outage as far as I know...

          Suits me well, I am tired of fighting that server browser and when I finally figured it out I got the cannot connect to EA. The worst is the big anticipation I worked up to play tonight for the first time, but the heck with that
          ,a good nights sleep and I am fit for fight again.

              I just want to know why the veteran stuff still isn't working, or at least some info on progress.

                My estimation is they are seriously attempting to get all the gaming servers/master server connect back for US peak gaming hours, which is a few hrs from now. If they fail to do that then they really will have egg on their face

                    I haven't been able to get past the server browser since the game came out I hope this fixes the problem.

                            It could be possible they wanted it fixed in preparation for primetime.
                            If you've played the game at all you know the servers (and the EA master servers) tend to get real ****ty when there are tons of people playing.

                              Yeah, servers get ****ty when they dont put enough MONEY into it and there is more demand than supply. Its oversight and crappy handling that's all. You don't see Oracle databases and other services going down without redundancy. Who am I kidding though, this is a game, and its not like we're going to sue the crap out of them...yet.
