Servers are down...? Can that mean...

Discussion in 'RaceRoom Racing Experience' started by skidmark33, Dec 30, 2015.

  1. Far be it from me to start any rumours... :whistling: but all the R3E servers are down (at least when I try 'em).

    Does that mean a juicy new year's present is on the way? Maybe a very long circuity thingy?

    Ready to go... :ninja:

    Some beta testers have hinted that the Nordschleife is not due for imminent release so I doubt it's that. Would love to be surprised though.

    Edit - forum is back.
  5. Hosting servers probably went down.

    Bout time people stop nagging about the always online part, it's not going away anytime soon, probably never, if you despise it so much don't play it....
    R3E is one of the few sims on the market that you can't find a pirate download for, so it's rather unlikely they'll give up on that.

    No offence to you Kjell, but it's not really up to you to tell others what they should and shouldn't be allowed to be upset with. How else are devs meant to gauge their users reactions to aspects of their software if not through forum feedback?

    I'm pretty sure that always online SP / flaky servers are one of the least liked aspects of an otherwise great game. I understand why they put it in place but the implementation is flawed from a user perspective. And when I have limited spare time to actually drive sims, being unable to play one due to server issues is frustrating and worth venting about.

    I'm just saying, it's not going away, no matter how much people nag about it, so you are better off turning your back on the game and play something else because nagging will get you nowhere in this case. Ofc I can't stop it, but just as you find it frustrating to not be able to play, I find it frustrating to see people nag about things that just ain't gonna change.
    You're right though, it's not up to me to tell people what they are allowed to be upset with or not, though I'm just venting my frustration just as you guys are.

    More than hinted at.
    Several beta-testers have categorically stated that Nordschleife wouldn't released be until well into 2016.
    Actually, since I have two weeks of vacation coming up in January, I will bet serious money on the fact that it'll be released right AFTER my vacation.......:(
    So that'll be Feb 4th. :D

    Anyway, AFAIK the only thing more or less ready for release are the NSUs.

    Kjell, I think people would be more tolerant of the "always on-line" policy if the servers were more reliable. It's the combination of the two issues that is the root of the dissatisfaction.
    Maybe Sector 3 aren't prepared to change the "always on-line" policy, but perhaps they can do something to improve the server reliability.

    Absolutely, and I know for a fact that they are continuously working on improving that, it's not a matter throwing more hardware at it, they need to make the software more stable.
