I find it hard to believe that the servers filled up so soon after maintenance on a Sunday night at 12:30am.

It seems they did not remove their silly decision of limiting logins. Very sad.


They must not have a choice about restricting logins. I don't think it's their goal to **** us off!

It does kind of present the impression that they aren't accomplishing anything with all these shutdowns.

No queue on Diabolos. Wondering why they've kept this insanely tight strangle hold on the logins and not loosened up at all.

Also wouldn't be so bad if I didn't get halfway into my load time before kicking me off with the server full error. That's just frustrating.

We won't know if what they did worked at all really due to how hard they've bottle necked the amount of people that can login.

You guys are mistaking that error.

1017 is the manual lockdown on login servers. They occasionally open up the servers to allow more people to queue in without busting the zoning/instanced servers. The more they lift this restriction, the more risk people who are playing are getting kicked due to congestion.

I'm right there with you. I haven't been able to log onto my main since yesterday. She finally showed back up in character select so at least that's something.

Yeah, but they need to solve the root cause of this, and all they've done thus far is implement placebos and tell us we're better. They did seemingly solve the duty finder/zoning issue when I managed to get in before this last maintenance, but that's been during login lockdowns, so who knows what it would perform like under full stress.

We've been fairly patient, but this is a bit ridiculous at this point. This will only be far worse on Tuesday.

Gotta agree with him here. I would rather have them shut down the servers completely again. And make sure they will be able to handle everything and be at 100%.

Well, you know the solution would honestly be less people. That's the immediate root cause of this problem.

Don't want to deal with the login queues and the lockouts? Don't play for a while. I've said this before, but this bears repeating, this seems more like a hardware issue than a software one, and it's likely not feasible to quickly solve this problem, given the gigantic demand SE has been saddled with.

We can complain, or we can be patient. Either way it reflects nothing on the actual game substance and content and everything to do with the fact that demand is incredibly higher than the supply at the moment.

We don't set Game Stop/Sony/Microsoft on fire for not having enough PS4s and XBoxOnes on the shelves, nor should we do so to SE for servers who are buckling under overload.

Queue up on Balmung now. Hopefully they will keep the lock off for everyone else tonight.

Edited, Aug 26th 2013 1:55am by mabiche



ETA: Two minutes into the game and I get a runtime error. And now back to 1017. lol ._.
