lol to maximise the uptime... they arent maximize the uptime, they are minimizing the uptime for 5hours... even if the server will be online after 5hours then the server will go down for 2hourse because the traffic is to high blablabla... riot u make your costumers angry with your long downtimes... no other game developer need so much time

you thread your costumers like ****!

They need to start scheduling this ****. Last week it was on Thursday so the weekend uptime would be good to go. I didn't even plan on playing last night for that reason. Now I come home from work Friday night (weekend uptime right?) to play after anticipating playing my whole shift, bought some RP on the way home, and now I can't ****ing play during the time they claim they maintenancing for.

This wouldn't be so hard for us to work around if it was scheduled and no one would be able to complain. Some downtime once a week to assure performance is cool, but when it's this random you end up with pissed off customers (yes I am a ****ing customer I buy plenty of RP) and eventually they might stop altogether as I sit here wondering now if I'm going to ever look forward to playing again after work and buy some RP if I don't know for sure or not if I can even play when I get home.

i still dont see why the downtime has to be forced into 1 day? why cant it be cut down and spread over a period of time.... im relating directly to eve online who has a 1 hour downtime period daily... which is scheduled and its not too long so its not as annoying.

God ****, another server-down QQ thread? When will all of you get it in your heads that they over-approximate most down-times so that people don't cry to mommy if it goes over their prediction? Its frickin' 5 in the morning server-side. Normal people (myself clearly not included) are sleeping or working late shifts.

Yeah, its kind of odd that they chose to do it on a weekend, but how late it is on the weekend is at least some indicator that they didn't just pick a time out of their ass.

I agree, Riot should announce these maintenance shut downs earlier.
