During this week DCUO developers released status update on the MegaServer and discussed the problem they ran into and the game’s immediate future (Players will have an early access to Game Update 4: Enemies Unite on the Test Server).
At the same time, SOE announced huge maintenance on all games and services on Tuesday, July 12. I put two and two together and came up with an idea – the Test Server goes live on 12 July. Do you agree? And will you give another chance to DCUO with the MegaServer?
Wanted to give everyone a quick status update on the MegaServer initiative. We have made progress on the one issue that was blocking us from getting our PC test server live. My goal was to launch the Test Server this week. We ran into a problem with migration of the Group/League chat channels from the live service and had to postpone the launch for a couple of days. I know everyone is as anxious to get this going as we are, but I want it to work without problems. So, hang in there and you should see it this week.
For those of you who are interested in getting an early look at Game Update 4: Enemies Unite, we are planning on putting Update 4 on the Test Server so that players can test the new content. Look for that soon, after we have the MegaServer up and running.
Beginning July 12, 2011 at 1:00 a.m. US Pacific Time, SOE is performing maintenance on all games and services. During this maintenance, our forums, websites and games will also be unavailable. The estimated downtime for the maintenance is 8 hours.
This is what I’ve been waitin for 🙂
Now I heard that it will be the PC servers first. Any ideas about the PS3? Might open new alert, raid and other partners to play with on these.
It says 8 hour maintenance for SOE hopefully we can get megaservers for PS3 before Update 4. I’d like to spend time getting used to the new system that will be applied due to the megaserver, then bring Update 4.
It said I must redeem my voucher code or login on the same ps3 account I used when it was redeemed. Figured my subscription ran out so purchased 3 months and still…..I can’t get on. Is this why?
I was getting the same message and because of the fact that the DCUO forums are down it is hard to find official information and even unofficial information as it is even hard to find any information on Google. I was about to bye the same subscription until at the last minute I though that it would be worth checking my transaction history to find it had been less than a month since I last purchased my 30 day subscription. There definitely needed to be more information on this update or at least not such a misleading message on start-up.
The game is still under work as of 11 am Central time
dumb question….how do we get onto the test server?
At 7A.M. central time it was online… i got into it for about 30mins, then at 8A.M. it shut down for maintance… im guessing it didnt start at 1A.M. cause i wasnt the only one playing at that time.
how do you quit the test servers because it wont let me play the characters i already had before i downloaded it any more?
