Patch 1.0.4 really on the 26th?

★★★★ Novice

Anyone else notice they say down for 2 hours for maintenance? I don't see anything official saying 1.0.4 is tomorrow. In the live stream all they said was aiming for next week. From my experience companies usually don't take down a server to patch the game. Here's hoping it's server upgrades and the patch tomorrow.

As I understand it, the server maintenance is entirely unconnected with the patch.

ye i suppose the servers are tanking and they need to adjust some things.
you should check out star citizen...Jesus Christ they gotta restart servers a couple times a day.

just looks as if alot of things in anthem run serverside, so i suppose those are under quite some stress

Odd. In my experience, patches usually require server downtime. However, 1.0.3 was made live without, so this game does not seem to require it.

 

Nothing official has been said regarding the patch, and the closer we get to the downtime period, the less likely I think it is that it'll happen.

A patch is different and server maintenance is entirely another thing buddy. Its not the same. So the answer to your question is no,there will be no patch tomorrow.

Gonna show my old man fuddy duddy chops now.  When Star Wars Galaxies went live,it had to have it's severs restarted daily.  The largest factor that caused this?  People creating new characters and the free fruit each got (which often was put on the auction house).  At least that is what they claimed later as they removed the free fruit from new characters.  Yeah MMO's from 2003.
