1017 - It's Alive!Follow

1017 must have been exposed to an accidental dose of lab radiation..

They don't even bother letting you get to the character screen before throwing it at you.

Could this all be part of a massive marketing campaign, where we discover that an epic boss mob named "1017" exists, aka "The Sleeper" from old EQ days?

Yea... anyone else with this. I'm getting the "1017 world is full" message right after I hit the start, before I even see my character. And that's when I can actually hit start.... most of the times the start is greyed out and then I get the "2002 lost lobby connection" error. What in the heck is going on? I work too hard, ran around with the kids, hung out with the wife all day long to come down to the den and relax to a title screen and errors for an hour. Inbetween I've been watching tv and internet, but seriously... I get what I pay for those. What am I getting paying SE? I understand launches, I understand server capacities, but I'd rather you shut it down for 3 days and fix it rather than let this drag on for weeks. Anyone else getting the same errors from above?

This way they can say that they were "offering" the service, the fact that it wasn't available 90% time doesn't matter since availability isn't in the ToS.

Game dev companies have really good teams of lawyers - only way they get away with what they do and still survive.



ToS state that they don't have to have the service up at all for any reason whatsoever.

Oh look another pointless thread for 1017 was created again from bahlmyth. Seriously I believe you should keep it up next week as well when the new servers will go live.

If you put the same effort in trying to log in instead of making this threads you would have already been 50.

Don't upset the Kool-Aid drinkers - they can only tolerate one heretic at a time..

Challenging tasks like counting above the number 2 ad thinking for themselves makes them angry..




Awww you making me blush here another cookie for you as well.

Seriously I will run out of cookies if you keep it up.

By the way I like your permanent sub-defaulted status. Makes people pay attention to you more.

It was Flavor Aid. I mean, as amusing as watching you repeat what you overheard adults say at one point, you've yet to get one fact about anything correct. Maybe, I don't know? Take two seconds to read about what you want to speak about and then use that information in some meaningful way?

Now it's well after launch and many can't log in... why are you still being a drone SE apologist?



No you are mistaken killua. I never said I like the problems we are having. I am raging in the IRC about them and I believe SE are stupid that have this kind of problems,

I am just against people like balmyth that ***** all the time for the same thing over and over again.
You said it once? Cool yea you are right I agree with you.
You said it twice..what the heck...yes I still agree with you.

You said 100 times well you sir need to shut up.

Please do not let trolls disrupt from the conversation.

After restarting the client numerous times, I now continuously get the "cannot load NA/EU server list". Anyone else??? Again, trolls will be trolls... just ignore them and don't feed them.

Get real killua. You don't make 10 threads a day for the same reason. Go have a beer go have a private time with your gf but stop posting the same thing over and over again.

What do you want the rest of us do. Say 100 times as well that we agree with you? We are upset as well yes but we move on.

Ok... shut the PS off completely, hung out with my middle boy (4) who is having serious life issues with that new Disney Infinity, lol. Helped him with the Pirate board, then came back downstairs... I'm on the character screen and I have a server list.. but I'm getting the 1017 world full error. This is really sad, from a business stand point. Where do I find all the updates and notices? Do they have at least an ETA as to when they would like to be done... or a game plan as to what NEEDS to be done first? Anyone?

You of course are mistaken since it's the first time I say enough is enough with the same posting all the time.

"bend over" haha such elegant language. No sir if you want to rage go in lodestone and rage open a ticket with SE don't do it here. No one can do anything here anyway.

#28Prophet vahlmyth, Posted: Sep 01 2013 at 1:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) At this point SE saying they are "Aware of the problem and are working on it" is like saying a Leper colony has a skin condition.

#30DamienSScott, Posted: Sep 01 2013 at 1:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A week after launch and still nothing has changed. The Servers are still garbage and the White Knights still have their tongues snaking up SE's bunghole for that last golden drop of fan service. I love paying for something that I can't use. I would like to pay more, I would like to pay every month.

I appreciate their hard work but honestly i dont want excuses. Shut it down take your time fix it and reopen servers, dont sit here and give hand jobs to the customers. We want the full game whenever 1PM or 1AM. Its not right i feel bad for customers that work hard all week and do what they have to do to come home on labor day weekend and enjoy their $40 game.

You cannot possible be this idiotic! Do you believe that game companies are the only companies with a ToS to protect themselves or have a team of lawyers? Fact of the matter is, they have a gaggle of lawyers, for a myriad of things. Financial lawyers, copyright lawyers, contractual lawyers, trial lawyers, and so on.

Vahlymyth, if you hate the game so bad just stop playing it and get a refund, and if you can't get a refund I'll buy out your copy so just we don't have to deal with your posts.

Posts like this get upvoted while people with legitimate issues with the game get sub defaulted. I'm glad to have been a part of this forum before the game came out, but It seems like it's definitely time to go back to not posting anymore.

As for the whole buying another copy of the game, I don't really have the money to kick around and wait for possible reimbursement. Maybe they should get their head's out of their asses and fix their Altana damned servers so people aren't spamming their support with pointless tickets so they can actually fix the real ******* problem their *** backward systems are having.

Last update from Yoshi P was that the new equipment is in and they're getting the software installed and running external checks on it. While the majority of the QA tests will be automated, there's that one poor shchlub who has the manual test scripts who has to check off a thousand boxes or so, too. And you know as soon as they skip that testing, someone is going to find a major install bug and it'll cause a lot of misery for everyone involved.

I highly recommend the web comic "The Trenches" for the woes of MMO QA testers...

What legitimate issues?

SE has already come upfront with the server issue's and provided a date when they should be fixed, there is no reason to be complaining about it at this point.
