A police officer was staking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible drunk drivers.

At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb and try his keys on five different cars before he found his. Then he sat in the front seat fumbling around with his keys for several minutes.

Everyone left the bar and drove off. Finally, he started his engine and began to pull away.

The police officer was waiting for him. He stopped the driver, read him his rights and administered a Breathalyzer test. The results showed a reading of 0.0. The puzzled officer demanded to know how that could be.

The driver replied, "Tonight, I'm the designated decoy."

I didn't notice difficulties of this scale earlier... Just lately... Maybe because I didn't play that much? :)

But anyway, everyone says this is normal or are the prolonged downtimes on a steep rise, as I feel it?
It may be, gentlemen at CCP has reached some kind of limit with complexity of the whole system.
Or not?


wut? this the longest down time for several years already.

I dont think that the skill queue works while the server is down... for all of you saying that we have a skill queue that saves up to 50 skills.. I dont think the skills are hosted in a different server.. so if the server is down, the skill queue is down as well



The concept of asking for soemthign is NOT about the training. IT is about the time we PAY and cannot play.

IS that so hard to understand? Or if they left the server offline for 10 days you would not want a refund for the time you payed and could not play?



~$.02 USD an hour. That's what you're missing out on. If it hurts that bad, give me a verifiable invoice of your accounts, I'll reimburse you for the downtime out of my own pocket. I'll need you to cover any money transfer fees though, I use Western Union.


And, before you say something about ISK, that's even better. If you want, I'll reimburse you the USD equivalent of however much you would have made in ISK during the downtime. In order to maintain fairness in the accounting, I'll be using the ISK to USD conversion rate as set by CCP.

Just give me a buzz, I'm happy to help.

Where can I get my money back?

So much money each month is streaming towards CCP and they can't even buy decent programmers and/or equipment.

Nuff said.


The standard EVE sub is around 15 USD. That's 50 cents a day. Not being able to play EVE for the last 8 hours cost you 16 or so cents.

Hell man, give me your paypal info, I'll give you 16 cents if it'll get you to STFU.

A blind man walks into a bar, taps the man next him and says, "Hey, wanna hear a blond joke?"

The man said to the blind man, "Look buddy, I'm blond. The man behind me is a 400-pound professional wrestler, and he's blond. The bouncer is blond. The man sitting over to your left is also blond. Still wanna tell that blond joke?"

The blind man was silent for a moment and then said, "Nah, I wouldn't want to have to explain it five times."
