When did it last work? oO... the "service" has been down more than up so thats pretty crap, and when its up its not just close to the info the US get, for the same fee. Id guess we get a working a week or 2 after 1.84, and then it stops working a month after we got 84.

More concerned with the CM bug to be honest, it's pretty much crippling the economy at the moment since no-one can see what's really there...and people don't want to spend 2 hours riding round all the housing zones just in case something might be there...

The stuff haven't worked for a year now.

Can we all agree it's "Ok!" to label this gross incompetense on GoA's part now?

It really is a fair border. Before the first years anniversery you use the lines:

  • "Oh, tough luck ... everyone is allowed to make a mistake."
  • "Don't flame GoA, they will get it to work"
  • "DoooOoooOoooOooom"
But, after a year you just call it incompetense.

That's when you stop talking about it. When you ignore it because it's too embarrising.

GoA and their XML is a bit like when seeing that cave shaman, smite cleric or mind mentalist standing at the bots yelling "LFG". You just look the other way in embarresment and think to yourself: "Oh my, how low can anyone sink, poor, poor bastard!".

Considering the amount of time the service has been down since it went live a couple of years ago it really is a damning indictment of GOA's commitment to customer support. I get the impression that GOA just really don't care about the RoH very much, any decent XML coder who knows his way around databases would have had that system back on it's feet ages ago. I get the feeling that GOA are either short of people with the proper skills to run the RoH or there is a total lack of communication with the right people at Mythic about how to get things running reliably. Either way, it is piss poor. GOA now has more customers than Mythic has on the U.S. servers and yet we are still getting a lesser service, hell when I look at the version of RoH the old Italian publishers provided to thier customers it makes me weep when I see that GOA haven't even been able to keep thier watered down version running.

The same as the US, whatever that turns out to be. All XML etc is going to be common, apparently.

You dont have to ride around checking. Go to the ME find the thing you want and then clik on buy. This takes u to an exact representation of that persons cm. U dont have to buy the item it just shows u if it really is there. Saves u time riding :)

The XML is currently being investigated at GOA HQ.

Any more info will be published by an E&E or whoever as and when an update is available...

So the whine made them start the "investigation" or did they use the last year working on it?

Nice to see a good food soldier standing up for GoA. I just wish you had chosen the subject that weren't displaying their gross incompetense...

... a year and counting :(

durnit... have to agree with mr svartmetall here..

The CMbug we have atm is a disaster, cant buy nereids, cant sell anything to fund my crafting, I couldnt even buy ablatives, 3 pages with ablas on ME and not a single one could be seen on the CMs. Fucking great.. been a month+ now too with a very serious bug :/

Yeah, before last summer it was reasonable stable. It used to be down 1-2 weeks after each patch, but usually GoA got it up and working afterwards.

The lsat year it's been down just about permanently though.

It's sort of semi-working now - guild totals have updated and character totals are correct but it seems to have counted all rps since patch as 'last week'

well. i'm not sure if it was broken this time. ive never had any problems with it. keeps seems to update as they should and havent seen any rvr active ppl be "stuck" with a certain ammount of RP's from what ive noticed on roll of honor..

but then again, i'm not intrested in measuring Epeens from that RoH to bother noticing that stuff...

and i cant really get why ppl want it up again if it IS broken, all ive seen it used for is to whine at whoever farms the most RP's and what not :(
