Why the heck would you choose to do the server merges at the same time that you released new content, knowing the risks? This is just really poor planning and it shows a lack of care towards the player-base, honestly.
I could understand if this was critical maintenance, but it wasn’t. This was optional to do at this time. All this has done is cause frustration from players that were eager to experience the new content - a 16 hour downtime essentially means that we’re getting the patch a day late.
It would have been smarter to do the merges before the new content, or after people had a chance to experience the new content if that wasn’t possible.
I’m speaking about the technical risks of a server merge. Putting data-sets together, checking for data integrity, ensuring that there has been no package loss etc. These things take time and they can take extended durations if there are any problems.
I’m not 100% sure why you’re bringing children into this?
so this can be a thing in anyday, why u worry that much if clown will be here tomorrow aswell? like seriously, if u rly stressed out that probably u cant do it today and need w8 1 day, u should take care about ur mentaly helath thats not normal at all (no negativity just facts)
because bunch of them making similar posts and raging about that like they alwys do?
… But this isn’t an accident, xD69. This was a decision that they made that was perfectly avoidable. I think that people making posts to share their feedback with decisions they perceive to be poor is perfectly fair use of the forums.
Suggesting that I have mental health issues because I have an issue with my service provider’s service provision is a bit much, don’t you think?
I think that it’s right for people to be allowed to vent their frustrations at a poor service. Not really that much to do with addition. I’ve not been playing Lost Ark, I’ve been waiting for this patch to return to the game, as it happens.
Do you genuinely think that this was a smart move from AGS @Fluffernutter? To do the patch and the server merges on the same day? Or are you just venting your frustration at people venting their frustration?
