But no. The server decides when I can play. Right now we are not allowed to play.
Perhaps tomorrow. I hope.
Currently, a lot of servers are having stability issues. Ranging from the usual lag, lag spikes, sudden high ping, repeated server disconnects and worst of all flat out server shutdown for hours, days and even _weeks._ People jump ship from official server to another and get gutted by the same issues even there.
I really love this game, so do my friends and we tough out a lot of in game issues including exploits, because we can fight it back/work it around somehow.
But server related issues? How will we tough that out? Can we expect stability anytime soon? Will we be able to play?
This is not a hate on funcom thread, funcom has done many redeeming things in the past, such as the testlive stress test recently and lots of hotfixes that fix gamebreaking issues but evenly so they have “re-implemented” year old bugs that still are here somehow. Will this ever end so we can at least play the game somehow, somewhat? It is unplayable right now. Downright literally, unplayable.
Thank you for the read.
