Alternatively, you can simply relate the real world to the game by imposing this rules:

1) For every 1hr delay, you are going to reimburse the players for 10k skill points.
2) For every 1hr delay, you are going to deduct your "IT specialists" annual bonus (if they do have, poor CCP employees) by a fraction of total CCP's loss in terms on USD due to compensation.


I can assure you from there onward, there will never be any delay in any major/minor/**** patch day.

If you do not have intend of publicly listing your company, you can continue to ignore the above rules. You are CCP anyway, 2hrs for a major extension is already a "huge-ole-milestone" compare to years ago.

Netflix > Eve by the way.

Following up on my Citadel brothel suggestion, I believe there's an appropriate verb to qualify the activity I'd like to do in stations. Any goons around maybe? Big smileBig smileBig smile

Well ... we already have liquid space, kinda! So that should be easy.


So, when are we getting snorkels for our avatars?

ode to citadels

helo all folks here
you warp freighter to nowhere
you launch me like enjoying fun
you now anchor me for joy

after day of hard work
you wake up and grab the fork
you see citadel still anchoring
and thousand moros mooring
they now oil their bearings
and begin citadel hybrid hull cleaning

half day later you walk in station
falling down into well of apation
from the paradise into annihilation
and you end up in highsec without stagnation

you buy new citadel go to tama anchor it
what the hell, someone already doing it
you pick your proteus to fight mighty whiptail
in swirl of the fight his hull finally fail

you finally got citadel keepstar class as
you wanted to belive you are looking at
your citadel your first best home
forget the pos its well done
then driling platforms come on
thrilling your heart as you board one now
you drill the moon to find so much gold
then kaboom got hit by guided bomb!

your citadel now is warm then you hear gong
thats reactor melting down
you did not supply that coolant
you was very very busy shooting rorqual
as you see green light above
you tethered to the tomb
losing titan to citadel bomb
and finally lost 5bil pod

Doubt they would do this, but by god, it would be awesome. At least the server rooms not up in smoke.

The server downtime for deployment of the EVE Online: Citadel expansion will be extended a bit.

Originally we have estimated that we would need two hours to deploy the expansion on the TQ server, but we need a bit more time to deploy all the updates. EVE: Citadel is simply a massive huge expansion!

In the meantime we recommend to watch the Citadel trailer, the Citadel feature tour ... or re-watch the Fanfest 2016 stream!


Update 13:45
TQ is now in VIP mode, which means that we are verifying the correctness of the expansion.


Update 13:35
If the verification process of the deployment doesn't find any issues, then TQ will be open for connections most likely around 14:00 UTC


this normaly ends up being moved most the day

Please don't make me watch CCP's Permaband too, I just can't do it anymore I'm gonna airlock myself. By the way I'm watching all the episodes of Expanse before you get the new expansion in place.
