    When Servers Drop for Maintenance...

    '
    How many of you stick around until you're auto-logged?
    Do you exit the game early? Why?
    What do you do when there's maintenance?
    <--I still can't answer this one during the summer. Twiddle my thumbs???


    This is pretty random, but today it was really strange for me to see all of the players and shops in Dunby disappear when the servers dropped. It was like we were all kidnapped by aliens or blackrobe disease killed everybody or something. Usually I log out beforehand in fear of data loss but that's mostly because I don't actually know what happens when the servers shut down. This time I got to see all of our characters disappear~ Is the order of forced log-out based on the order of log-in?


    Do any of you stick around to observe this feat in Belvast? I think that'd be pretty cool, too.

    You could always relog so that assumed data lost doesn't happen?

    Well, before the maintainances I just try to finish my daily before the client goes down. Also I once tried to buy something from belvast shops, but then I couldn't since when the maintainance message appears, shopping gets locked. Good thing I recorded the person's name to buy the item after the game came back online.

    Whenever possible I log out myself. While technically there shouldn't be any difference, I don't trust nexon enough to do it. Although most of the time I'm not even playing several hours before maint as it usually starts at 4 p.m. here. As for what I'm doing during maintenance - (pretend to) work, play other, totally not nsfw games, maybe go out for a walk.

    1) No

    2a) Yes / 2b) I usually finish (or at least try to) any business left behind within the 24 hours prior maintenance starts (events takes priority)

    3) Given that i spend most of my time playing on the server, when there is maintenance i use my time to catch up with anime or play some (1 player) games that i downloaded just for moments where there could be (internet) connection issues or no interwebz at all (due x or y) (i learned to be proficent at spending my time because i hate having nothing to do)
