Then again how much WG is to blame for that, we dont know. They most certainly dont use their own server but rent them from a third party company (there are only very few of these left). If that third party has a problem there is hardly anything WG can do to fix that.

(...)

 

Pretty sure G-Core Labs is a subsiduary of Wargaming, and not really a third-party provider. Can't find any source, but I think it was mentioned on one of the blogs. Not a fact they are too proud of, apparently.

Hello Tankers, 

there is no reason to panic, servers didn't crash. EU1 had to undergo a very brief maintenance to implement changes needed before Ranked Battles start later today. This was needed to prevent some issues with MM in RB your fellow tankers reported on RU server. To deliver the best experience to you before season starts we decided to do the fix as soon as possible, which unfortunately meant it happened during the day.

 

Any chance that we could get an ingame notification about scheduled maintenances for the day (at login and/or at least 30 minutes ahead)? It's really annoying if you for example activate reserves and 5 minutes later the server goes down, with no indication when it will be back up.

 

Btw, does downtime count towards the duration of reserves?

At least get a different message to be displayed.

 

"Server is temporarily unavailable due to schedule maintenance". Yeah, right... 

 

The team responsible for the server status messages are the same team responsible for balancing premium tanks. Expect a new message in 1-5 years.

Nop. Same for premium time. All good, apparently.

I assure you that wasn't there when I created this topic.

 

It wasn't, first thing I did was check the news section to check if I missed some announcement after I got kicked...

It's the default message, and will be the reason regardless. Would you be less mad if they said  "Hamster died" or "Crashed for unknown reasons, it's up when it's up"?

 

 

It actually would, as I wouldn't have to check the news portal to see if I missed some announcement. There's no shame in a server sometimes crashing, if I know it's a crash I'll just check back later...

Would that message say "although you cant log in the servers are working perfectly and their bandwidth is perfectly balanced" by any chance?

Yeah, they carry on ticking away whilst the servers are down, I've lost 25-50% of 100% XP and 300% crew XP boosts several times because of deliberate but non notified shut downs
