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.
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. Edited, Aug 25th 2013 10:48pm by Dallie
