After not seeing it for 5 days.... it has finally returned.. the dreaded 1017. I thought it wqs fixed? When it Is fixed will it never return?

I mean sure a world is gonna get full you cant "fix" that but I still think they could fix that message from occurring.. i.e Id rather be stuck in a 1+ hour queue everytime I wanna log in when the server is full over getting that error and having to try over and over to get in, wouldnt you agree?

I don't know how many times it's been stated.

1017 is not an error, It is not a problem. It is a manual lockdown on server queues when the servers are taxed to capacity.

It is literally a "No Vacancy" Sign SE puts up to keep the servers from breaking. And right now, it happens on the most populated servers still.

yes except this is how a queue is supposed to work


lets say youre at a building that can only hold 100.... 100 are inmn youre number 101... Yioure oustid ethe door... They obviously dont let you in... you stay in line until soemone leaves THEN you can enter.. that show a queue/1017 SHOUDL work...


Instead its like this..


building is full t capacity.. you walk up to go in and the guy guarding the door says "we're full, gtfo and come back/try again later" Why should i have to do that when I can just wait outside until space becomes available? Waiting outside the building isnt burdening its already full capacity, so I fail to see the problem of putting me in a queue for however long it takes until a space opens up. That being said, please do explain it to me

You're looking at it wrong. It's not a cap of 100 and you're 101. It's a cap of 7,500 and you're 11,573. The queue is a system, too, and IT can only handle so much load before breaking.

A new store opens in town. The entire city is so excited by this, that many citizens start going down to the store. Soon, the store reaches its maximum capacity allowed by the fire marshals, so they set up a line outside. But the line kept growing and growing. At first it circled the building. Then it spilled into the parking lot. Soon, though it started to move onto the street. At this time, the police arrive, parked a patrol car at the entrance of the parking lot, and turned away anyone else who wanted to line up.

That would be the 1017. Do you get it now? Do you comprehend or... wait, forgot who I was replying to. Carry on the idiocy.

actually that makes perfect tense. Im far from an idiot tyvm (i like how ppl who insult others get rated up but then someone who calls the rating system and ppl on this board a cesspool for elitists fanboys gets sub def''d when this post above (and his rte up) proves just what that other person said). But anyway so basically the building (server) holds 100...when that gets full ppl wait in the "waiting area" (queue), which can be outside the building or another building entirely and that only holds 100.. when THAT gets full then ppl started getting turned away at the door... 1017.. yes as I said Im far from an idiot, that makes perfect sense. Now had you used the term ignorant then you would have been correct, if youre gonna insult someone at least have the elegance and vocabulary to do it correctly.

OK, OK, first... it's sense, not tense. Second, not a fanboy. Third, I got rated up for an accurate description of the issue. Fourth, you are an idiot. Hyrist literally said exactly what I did with proper terminology that you just utterly didn't understand, and this has been described before as far as I know. Re-read what he said.

obviously its sense and not tense, seeing as i used "sense in other parts of the post it should be clear the first one was a typo. Anyway I did read what Hyrist said. However to me "Manual Lockdown on server queues" to me sound like "We dont feel like putting people in queue anymore so where just gonna deny them access" as opposed to "the waiting area is full so we CANT put anyone in queue anymore" Now had he/she said "manual lockdown on queue SERVER" then THAT would suggests that he queuing area is a separate server/entity than the world/game server and that (queue) server was full too. Then i woulda understood and it wouldve made sense to begin with

Quit complaining... The severs are much improved, and I believe they are still working on them. I've only had a few instances of having problems logging in since the update (compared to not being to play at all). 1017 is never going away; It just won't be as common as they update the severs. You don't need to make a thread every time you encounter the error.

Because it never went away for WoW?

I used to have a character on what was once a low population server. My last time back, I tried going on, it was high population and impossible to access. Depending on the server, some will always been crammed full unless SE forcibly pushes players to other servers.

All this talk of 1017's reminded me of my outing to the gym Labor Day morning. I get to the gym a little before 8 am and was feeling pretty happy, thanks to very little commuter traffic and the hopes of being in a relatively empty facility that morning. I get to the door and find that it's locked. There was a sign that said "Holidays - 9 am to <sometime I don't care to remember>" so, with an hour to kill I took a stroll around the base this gym is on, trying not to look suspicious to the bored police patrolling the area. I get back to the gym a little before 9 and a small crowd had gathered, after waiting a few minutes after 9 someone pointed out that the sign is wrong and it opens at 10. During this wait, I look up and notice the building number... 1017! Dammit, SE! First, I get denied playing my spiffy-looking Mithra Miqo'te and now I get denied the opportunity to pick things up and put them back down.

Name one MMO you'd be willing to wait an hour to just get to play? The whole argument is moot because you know that even if you go and play another MMO right now, its just killing time until you can play this one.

You like the game. We like the game. Get over being frustrated and deal with it. No one gets what they want all the time.

You apparently want to play on a very populated server. Well, this is the cost of playing where most of the other cool kids are... you have to wait.

Yea... it is... after being in operation for, what, 9 years? One would expect a game making in excess of $115 million dollars a month could afford a few extra servers.

But, yea, you're totally reasonable to expect a game, at launch, already operating in the red, to have the same infrastructure as the world's largest MMO.

well if it ws a small company with no mmo experience then id agree but SEs been making millions since the 80s and has an mmo thats sucessful and been around longer than wow thus i think the should have the experience and money to have avoided this from the start or at least turn it around in a week
#26 Sep 07 2013 at 5:17 PM Rating: Good
That is much much older and handles a minuscule amount of data less than XIV.

BEFORE you tell me that I have no way of knowing that, capture packets from both games and compare them.

EDIT: Making millions has nothing to do with it. Budgeting has everything to do with it. It wasn't until NOW that the Board of Directors, NOT Yoshi or anyone else, decided to back this game. Not before. Look at it from their perspective. A failed game was taken down, tons sunk into it, and no definable way to know if it would succeed or not. As a business, you would cut a budget to a minimum for a project like that, too.

Yet out of that came greatness, just like with the original Macintosh. sh*t non existent budget, now a HUGE moneymaker.

EDIT 2: Preempting your response of "throw up more servers". They are. Despite popular belief, building servers isn't as easy as going to Best Buy, say, "I want a dozen servers, yo", taking them to Geek Squad and leaving them there overnight to make magic love to them, taking them home and plugging them in. Building them can take a long... LONG time. Parts are almost always on backorder. Performance precision is such an issue in such a data center that you almost HAVE to use identical hardware. Then there's configuring them.... Nightmare. The fact that they did so as quickly as they did surprises me.

Also, before you say, "If they didn't believe in the game they shouldn't have released it", yeah.... Just don't.
