Once again, there will be emergency maintenance today but thay haven't said when exactly. It will probably be from 2pm to 4 or 5pm so get your playing in before then.

Wtf, I was just playing and got booted, now all servers are offline. Thought I'd be ok at this time. Poor SEGA...

Logging on at 1 AM EST is probably the worst time to try to log in. =p

Yeesh, every night.

Also, I second Soubrette's comment. I was having fun.

Fix whatever needs fixing and leave it be, SEGA. Or else ya gonna get slap'd.

It's all part of tweaking and making sure everything works right and well.

Blah, I was in the middle of fighting Vol Dragon. I was fighting like garbage too, so ending it like that left a nasty taste in my mouth. I guess I'll have to wait for tomorrow to take proper vengeance. Trying to play during the JP primetime that comes after maintenance is just folly.

It's funny how some of us are angry about this.

This is going on at 2pm in Japan, where a majority of people are probably getting their play time in. Now they must be mad.

I really hope they find some counter-measures for the lag / disconnecting. I want the smooth gameplay we had at Alpha!!

But I suppose this just means I can do some work while I wait... *grumbles*

Was just about to start a new mission, then bam, error 630. Oh well, managed to get some decent playtime in. As for all the comments/complaints about lag, so far the servers have been a lot more stable than it was on the first day. Gotta give them some credit.

We're playing a beta, we should expect random stuff like this to happen.

The frequency that this is happening IS causing me to raise an eyebrow though. I wonder if they're still trying to do load balancing on their servers.

That's because they don't actually know why all this is happening. In additoin to the lag and general disconnections, the maximum number of connections to the servers also have somehow been capped and when the cap is reached, the servers throw a fit and disconnect a bunch of people even though there is still room for more people. You can read a bit more about it on the official blog.

All I heard from that post is:

They should get new server hardware or find a different vendor.

thx, i knew about the maintenance but didnt know if it was normal to not be able to even launch the game and try to connect It was not like this in previous maintenance.

Yeah, that happened to me. I'm on the ship select sign-in screen. If I close it all out I would get the same one you are having now. I need to learn this language.

I wonder what SEGA is experimenting, different NETcodings to fix their lag problem?

If I would take a random guess I would say that they are disabling features. The servers are probably more or less the same compared to alpha-2, but the game got a lot more extensive. Take those lobby chairs for example, I believe the lag improved by a bit after they removed them. The small updates indicates that probably not a lot has changed. They might have changed the client/server polling frequency of some features.

Yeah, don't expect this maintenance to have fixed anything. Fixes are to come later if what the Twitter account is true.

Well I was experiencing minor lag, not really anything unmanageable (Slight damage delay, occasional small lag spikes). Then after the mission I was on, I went to hand in a client request...got booted talking to the NPC...and now I can't login at all.

Did their login servers break again, or am I just unlucky?

Honestly, this is a Beta. It's to be expected. The amount of people that got in and are inviting friends is more than likely bigger than the amount that were able to get in during the Alpha tests. With more people, more lag is bound to happen. Wouldn't surprise me if they're also fixing things that ended up being broken now that more people have access.

Are the Japanese players getting lag/disconnects during these time periods too? Or are they getting like priority on the bandwidth or something? Not sure how this all works but it just seems like every time it gets to be around this time the lag just gets unbearable for 5-10 hours. If the Japanese players are getting it too it can't be very reassuring for them, right?

I was stating what happened. I was not complaining, I was asking a simple question to determine if it was just me, or if it was a server issue.

Just because someone mentions lag/disconnects does not mean that they do not understand that this is a Beta and that it will happen.

I'd be surprised if anyone didn't realize this after 3+ days of the same exact situation every single day.

But here's the thing: Since it's so commonplace, when it happens one wants to make sure that it's happening to others, and it's not a problem on their end. Imagine that.

The lag was definitely more noticeable now than the previous nights around this time. Although there was a decent amount of lag on the lobbies, I was able to do quests without much huss and fuss. Tonight, I had several occurrences where I literally timed out with a 630 error after I failed to do damage to mobs and they failed to do damage to me--timer was ticking, and they were still moving.

The other times where I didn't DC, there was a huge spike and suddenly everything was caught up. Still, I'm glad they're taking care of this now than later. Presuming they don't do any sort of region-blocking with release, we can only expect more players and not less--at least for the initial launch since this game is F2P.

From what's been reported, the Japanese players are experiencing the same lag. Most of this has to be a huge stress test project. If you consider the fact that nearly anyone will eventually have access to at least log into this game, coupled with the fact that this is a big name title (Sega's PSO2), Sega really needs to make sure they can fully handle it compared to what they've had previously. Also consider the fact that there is a lot of information being collected back and forth. They might be collecting too much data that is unnecessary, so things need to be tweaked too.

Well, I logged out just to change my resolution, and bam. Can't get back in.

I've had cases where I was waiting a solid 2 minutes for damage to register.
These servers aren't even close to 100% capacity and they're keeling over from all the activity. I fear for another release delay.
