Of course :)

The drinking game. You pretty much drink whenever someone makes a post at this point. Except for people who are also playing the drinking game.

Well it does seem free SD is in order, just like in the past when the server was down for a good deal of time.

I hope everything is ok CCP, and we know you are working as quickly as possible, and will make this period of down time right with the players.

Thanks for always keeping us informed and always working hard for us.

this is why a daily down time is a bad idea. almost no other modern mmo has a down time every day. bad code is still bad code, now its showing its ugly head. Twisted

So maybe rushing a release that includinded a major game change to a ton of game mechanics wasn't a good idea? Maybe we should take our time and release stuff when its ready, as opposed to releasing it on the release schedule thats setup months in advance that does not possibly have the ability to factor in every thing that could go wrong and slow your release down.

On second thought:

If CCP was in Japan, I think by now at least some of the IT team would have been asked to commit Hari Cari for their failure.

It's probably a good time to submit your CV now to CCP, as there may be a few new vacancies becoming available, any second ... now...

Loving this one c:
And of course, us lowly users are not allowed to post images. Oh well. Maybe it is for the better.

I find it hilarious how so many people are up and about and say "rollback to last patch" or some other oblivious poop as if they'd knew what the matter is. Especially wanna-be developers who obviously stay anonymous say how they would do and have done it sure gets my giggles up. The screams for compensation is just as funny as ever.

A big thanks to the people who push against this lunacy here and who are showing the proper attitude to deal with this problem. Because all we can do is wait anyway, so who cares c: The complains sure will not help the servers go up faster.

Oh and to those who want to write a snarky comment to my post here? Don't bother wasting your time, because I will not look at this topic again c:

You cook? Can you also clean...?

So yes, as is, CCP is still well within the legal agreement you (and everyone else) made with them. If you dislike this, I'd recommend either cancelling your account (and EULA agreement), or traveling to Iceland to attempt to contest the EULA in the appropriate legal venue. If you choose the latter, good luck with that.

Then it's a good thing EULA doesn't apply to people living in Britain.

Yeeeah, about that. If you feel that the EULA doesn't "apply" to you, then your access of CCP services is against the law and you can get in quite a bit of trouble.

Access to Eve is dependant on agreement with the End User License Agreement. If you don't agree to be bound by the EULA, or for some reason cannot be bound by it, then accessing CCP systems is against the law.

Anyway, if, for some magic reason The EULA ACTUALLY didn't bind people in Britain, then CCP would be well within their rights (and likely would be) blocking all connections from, and business with British subjects.

No, because they still have their terms of service. They can't enforce the EULA in England. And I think if companies started blocking people in England because their EULA isn't legally binding here then there would be a massive shitstorm, considering the UK has one of the biggest gaming industries going right now.

Nobody in their right mind would block connections from England. That's just a stupid idea.

If you truly believe that the EULA does not apply to you simply because you are in the UK, then you probably also think that ISIS is a friendly group of people ....

The EULA does not apply to me because I live in the UK. Unless I physically sign a piece of paper with the EULA on it I am not legally bound by its contents.

And lets not talk about ISIS on the forums. If you want to talk about them send me a PM.

Nice edit you just made btw.

Then you people are doing a lot better than us oldsters. Some of us stopped with straight C and PERL. Ruby, Python, your fancy objects, when we were pleased and ever so impressed with functions? This is just one of the issues I have with all the new tech. Not only is it personally unfulfilling, since no single person can, any longer, comprehend the entirety of the code, it's also prone to inexplicable, and hard to debug errors.

There was something to be said for simplicity. Yes, I'm getting revenge for my last job interview where I was told, and I quote 'Get out of here, old dude!' It was funny, but rude, so every time this happens in today's systems, I have to laugh.

We also started from C and simple sh. I am 47 y.o. guy BTW. SO I know all this old stuff but new as well. And I could tell where to uses one or another.
