I agree - this happens every single week during our peak playing time when we are always playing team australian games.

If this could be done around 3 or 4 hours earlier, it wouldn't be an issue.

i agree that this is constantly being a problem for us. every week it ruins the game and we have to wait like half and hour to get going again.

It's - in general - diffcult finding a time window to run automatic maintenance. We are performing maintenance every Wednesday at 11 AM CET / 5 AM EST / 2 AM PST for the past five years.

Hey Chris,
i understand its been happening for 5years but is it possible to change it and make it earlier even if it's for awhile.

But even 2-3 hours earlier would mean alot.

Regards,

This means that we've gracefully put up with it for 5 years - surely it is fair to move it to another time so someone else can share the pain?

every afternoon i come home wanting to play some AoC, I been suffering really hard for so long now because of this maintenance at specifically 09:55 GMT. Usually this forces me to have dinner, when instead i just want to play AoC. Changing the time back slightly would definitely be great.

Our chosen time window is based on the player activity on Voobly, which is the lowest at 10 AM GMT with approximately 900 players. Three or even four hours sooner would mean, that 1,5k - 2k players would be affected, three or four hours later would affect > 1,5k players. This cannot be a serious suggestion. We also talk about a time window of approximately 10 - 20 minutes.

It could be scheduled at 9 AM GMT instead of 10 AM GMT, but I don't see, how this would solve your problem.

I'm just taking the piss. That 20 mins reboot hardly ruins anyone life.

An hour or two sounds good tho.

An hour earlier would make a difference, since not great but any improvement is welcome.

Just do it 12 hours earlier. We're all at work then so it's fine
