One would think they learn from past expansions...

Is there some kind of Icelandic ritual that involves head injuries or massive alcohol consumption that may cause this constant loss of lessons from the past? This would explain a lot..

Patch day. 11:00 - 12:00 EVE time. It'll probably run over but not by a lot. Oh we of little faith!

*Edit - *expansion* day, not patch day! But that depends on how you perceive CCP's bug-fixing timeline.

Ive never experienced an EVE patch day.. but no game I have ever played has not overshot their patch time by like .. half a day or more.

Im thinking back to a time when 'expansions' had a lot more meat in them imho, major game changes, a sort of headline attraction rather than a small grouping of things that make it up, but this is the way its going now thou.

1 hour to upload the patch (expansion), im calling this accurate.

its the 2-3 days of extended downtimes, unexpected patches and general fixes that get kinda ridiculous.

remember to set a long skill folks. past performance is indicative of future expectation.

Not complaining, it gets better every year. I think RMR was the worse expansion I remember. I was stilkl young then, so every hour in the game really mattered!

Does each expansion bring less content than the last one?

The last few expansions were done in a few hours.

Of course, if CCP get it wrong, the sky will fall in.

This is not a signature.

I see your beer and raise you fanfest tickets.

There's nothing worse than an EVE player, generally considered to be top of the food chain in the MMO world, that cannot smacktalk with wit and coherency.
