  • Downtime scheduled for Battlefield Bad Company 2 servers Wednesday

    Just a heads up:

    Downtime scheduled for Battlefield Bad Company 2 servers Wednesday

    It looks like the problems with the Battlefield Bad Company 2 official online servers that started this weekend have crept up again today. There was some downtime earlier today on the servers for EA's recent first person shooter that the game's official blog site said, "was caused by a routing issue outside of EA's control." That issue has since been fixed.

    However the blog also states that there will be some scheduled downtime for the game's official servers tomorrow. The downtime is scheduled to begin at 12 midnight Pacific time (that 3 am Wednesday for the Eastern time zone). There's no word yet on how long the downtime will last but developer Digital Illusions suggests following their official Twitter page for more info.

              Stop what your doing, because I'm about to blow your mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

              More downtime for Battlefield Bad Company 2 servers; upgrades coming

              Bet you didn't see that one coming did ya.
              And guess what, it is for tonight and tomorrow night.

              But they do say this:
              "The reason is at least a good one. They will be putting in some new server machines to deal with the online traffic that has been much larger than first anticipated for the game.

              The downtime will begin tomorrow morning at 3 am Eastern time. Yet another downtime period will happen Saturday morning at the same time. Digital Illusions promises, "Once the maintenance is complete you will experience an improvement to your online experience." We certainly hope so."

                Since launch a week ago, BFBC2 has already put EA servers through the following stress:

                * The 4 different soldier types have gathered a score of more than 34 Billion.
                * There's been more than 400M kills made.
                * 1.3M roadkills
                * Squads and Teams have assisted each other to 6.2 Billion points.

                      Well atleast it's not during prime time. 3am EST again.

The Internet Gaming community has evolved to cater to the lowest common denominator and practically ruined my desire to have any part of it. But not here. It is something wonderfully different." - frozenchrome

                        Also more news

                        http://ve3d.ign.com/articles/news/53...Being-Disabled

                        Inactive Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Servers Being Disabled

                        At DICE's request, all GSPs will switch off all public and privately rented Battlefield: Bad Company 2 servers after eight hours of inactivity, in an effort to reduce load on EA's crash-happy master server:
                        Due to the continued issues with the EA master servers, DICE have requested we turn off servers which aren't actively being used by players.
                        As we want you guys to enjoy this excellent game with as little problems as possible, we are going to be turning off all servers which have had 0 players for over 8 hours.

                        Please note that this is a temporary measure, which we hope everyone will support; however we also appreciate that some of your may not want your servers turned off.

                        Just to confirm this will only effect servers if they haven't seen a single player for over 8 hours so there is no need to worry that your server will be turned off when its full.

                        This follows the shut down of public servers, accounting for around 40,000 player slots.

                        Update: A DICE staffer confirms that Multiplay.co.uk (the source of the original story) has been asked to shut down servers. However, it is said to be voluntary - to opt-out, do the following:

                        1. Goto ClanForge -> Servers, select your server and Click Edit
                        2. Once in the edit screen configure your servers "Auto Restart Interval" to something other than None e.g. 1 Week
                        3. Save your server
                        The staffer does not reveal if other Game Server Providers are also participating in the scheme.
