I know what's broken, I know!

It's EVE.

On a more serious note: "ETA to fix 17:35" when it was 17:50 already: priceless.

C'mon stop complaining, I think (and hope) CCP is doing their best to fix it... sh... erhm "things" happens especially when releasing new versions. And given the load on the servers while every single player it's patching, it's very hard to test it before the actual release.

P.S.: I'm eager to log in again aswell

no it is not hard to test a patch. you run a concurrent server system, like many companies do, and you see what it does to that one before you roll it out the the main servers. Do you grab a paper clip and jam it into an electricval outlet? NO. you get your little brother to do it first. :)

You can't teast how the load of 100k players influence the infrastructure... you can predict it tho I admit

We're currently experiencing an issue with the Level3 caching server that is causing the issue. We're looking in to see if it can be resolved and should hopefully have more news very soon.

After reading the pages of people stucking at 15% into patch I thought it might be a server side issue.

6.5 hours since downtime, still doesn't work.

edit: next second I typed this message - launcher started to work. Probably should have post it earlier....

I want to play after a hard day full of work and all i can do is staring at my screen with growing frustration that CCP didn't learn a fuckign thing during the last 2 years....

this sucks...

Every ******* time these guys release a patch I hold my breath.
Incredible. Many MANY people I play with get regularly screwed every time a patch comes out.
The incompetence at CCP is hard to even grasp....

I can confirm that browsing to \bin\exefile.exe and running it as administrator works.

I was having the same issue, "stuck at 15" as well as the other one which said no patch available blah blah

Tried running the actual eve launcher NOT the EXE file as an admin and BAM!! it worked immediately, might just have been me but give it a try.

Worked for me, thx

Was broken here too - but Raimundo Desilu advise really made my evening. Cool

My solution:
After deactivating the option in the launcher to delete used patches, I had to run the EXE file directly to initiate the patch. Now it was finished correctly.

I also had my firewall (Win7 Firewall Control) switched off during patch process, because I often had issues with that while patching directly from EXE and not from the launcher.
