We had to run some emergency maintenance to fix an issue with AI bots popping up in low-tier battles on USC when they were intended only for the SA server.

Issue is fixed and servers are back up. "Scheduled Maintenance" is simply used to indicate that the server was manually taken down rather than crashing arbitrarily. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Compensation will be going out for the issue via a mass-invoice.

Somehow the LATM server is still up. Someone at the NA Central server farm probably tripped on the power cord.

 

I picture those "bad day at work" videos you see on youtube where some green horn is walking around and kicks some unsuspecting wire which sets off a cascade of sparks and flickers...then the whole place goes dark and someone ask's if they need a snickers.

They have a switch with a predetermined message that shows on the login screen. It wasn't a message that was made when they took the server down. It is a very, very, minor non-issue in the grand scheme of things.

Precisely. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel and redefine what "scheduled" means to you. I was simply explaining that this is what it means in regards to our server.

There is no box that comes up and asks us what to say when we take down the server. "Scheduled Maintenance" for all intents and purposes as far as server status is concerned, means that the server was manually taken down by someone as opposed to randomly crashing. It's a predetermined message which we have no immediate control over.

I do understand that it can be confusing and as always am happy to pass on that bit of feedback, however at the time getting the immediate technical issues fixed took a bit of priority over making sure that the downtime message is articulated properly.

If you read the patch notes they said they have everyone who has premium time 1 day extra as compensation for the update

 

I know they usually do when their is an update but I was talking specifically about the server "scheduled maintenance", but it ended up not lasting that long.
