As usual, I kicked off EverQuest II this morning to check sales and just poke my nose in before work.
This morning there was a huge, Game Update-sized download. I went to check the EQ2Players.com site to see what was up.
Unfortunately, the prevailing default behavior of information lagging behind action at SOE was still in force this morning and I saw nothing in the Game Update Notes forum about anything happening today.
The network status page, which I am glad to see now appears to reflect live data as opposed to its old, static format, does say that there is a scheduled downtime for this morning. (The page is still ugly, and less informative than even Warcraft Realms’ server status page, which is a freakin’ third party effort. Come on SOE!)
Call me impatient I suppose, but my machine finished the download an hour ago and I still see nothing.
Yes, I am being unfair. SOE has better things to do than keep me up to date.
But I wanna know! Now!
[The answer, at 11:54am Pacific Time, is yes, Game Update 36 is out today. Notes here.]
