πŸ›  Server Maintenance - Wednesday, May 20 - AoE: DE, AoE II: DE

Will this include the hotfix?
Why at this time? Every day around this time most players are playing the game according to Steam. You can take every other time…

Probably because it fits the american working pattern. 9pm GMT will be 2pm on the west coast.

Please fix some bugs. Some of them are very common and have been existing since FEBRUARY! Many people are frustrated.

MALAY. :crazy_face: .

Don’t expect Server Maintenance to fix bugs,

Those are updates that should do it

Why are doing this at 4pm on the East Coast?

Hello.

To make a server maintenace at 22:00 is in my opinion questionable but well it should only last one to two hours so I guess thats fine. What I can not understand is the fact that there is no anoucment for that on the main screan of the game. There are f events to unlook avatar but no information about an upcoming downtime of the servers. Would that be a nice place or you simply do not want to β€œoverload” the screen with ussles chunck? Love the game. Have fun.

Who the β– β– β– β–  starts work at 2pm?

I second that. The lack of in game notification is frustrating.

I am also disappointed you removed the ability to play without your servers. There is absolutely no reason I cannot play with friends right now.

However I appreciate the efforts you put in updating this game. Thank you.

== UPDATE ==

MAINTENANCE COMPLETE!

Thank you for your patience during the downtime! Please let us know if you encounter any issues connecting to the game or multiplayer services.

Happy hunting!

Who said updates are pushed as soon as work begins for the day?

A post was merged into an existing topic: [TRACKING] 36202: Disconnect within 5 Minutes of joining a Match

The globe is round, you know that right? There are people playing from Europe, America, Asia, … That pretty much already covers the timezones not to mention people play at different times. Which time would you pick to please everyone? I am sure devs have got their statistics on server utilization and act accordingly.

Everyone can see the number of only players at steam. There is a clear pattern. Around the time of the maintainance it is always peak hour.

Well, you made a very good point. I just checked that myself and … oh boy! How comes the patching happens at this very time? Looks like the timing could not be any worse.
