Breaking announcements from SOE

  • SOE services will remain offline today. We continue to work diligently to bring things back as quickly as possible and appreciate your continued patience.
  • SOE services will remain offline today… and maybe tomorrow.  This “fixin'” stuff is hard work!  We continue to work diligently to bring things back as quickly as possible and appreciate your continued patience.
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  Our devs are playing Minecraft while the server monkeys are flinging feces at routers and IP addresses.
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  Suprise!  Bet you couldn’t guess that, huh, Mr. Smarty Pants?  We may or may not continue to work diligently, but you’re sure as heck going to wait.  How’s that “continued patience” coming along?  Make a quilt yet?  Dig out your Atari 2600?
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  What’s one more day?  We’re going to Six Flags.
  • SOE services will remain offline today, although we may bring the servers up for a five-minute test run to see if we can snap your mind when we bring it all back down.
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  It’s taking us way longer than we thought to completely wipe out all of your characters’ inventories!  Whew!
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  We’ll all laugh about this one day, I bet.  “Hey Joe, remember when SOE services were offline?”  “Wow, Bob, that takes me back!  Those were the good ol’ days!”  “Har har!  Yes indeedy!”
  • SOE service / remains murky and broken / patience will triumph
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  To compensate players, we are having a special 2-for-1 sale on the Station Marketplace!
  • SOE services will remain offline today.  Please stop eying World of Warcraft.  You know she’s just going to break your heart and leave you for RIFT when your subscription is up.  DON’T THINK ABOUT IT, CHEATER.
  • SOE services are online.  Unfortunately, every game has received an NGE reboot, so enjoy your turn-based EverQuest 2 combat and LEGO Pirates of the Burning Sea!

  1. I wonder if this will become part of the hardcore mantra.

    When I was a lad we had slow travel, by boat.

    Ack, you had it easy. When I was a lad, we didn’t have no boats, we had to swim across 16 zones… while being chased by a shark.

    Sharks?! Let me tell you about sharks. When I was a lad, the sharks would come out during server downtimes. When you logged back on, you had to walk 360 zones, backward, on virtual broken glass.

    That’s nothing. My father used to beat us to death during month long SOE outages…

    And you tell young people today that and they won’t believe you!

  2. What’s scary for me is I haven’t received any email or notice from SOE. So I’m almost certain my account is hacked, gone, whatever, and contact information changed. Fortunately, there’s no unusual activity on my credit cards.

    That is scary. I haven’t played SWG in at least 3 years and I got an email.

    LMAO at the article.
