ELITE server going down for DAYS? wtf??

  • We´d <b> never </b> do anything to eliminate people being able to log into this server with a 56k modem. That would be so wrong on many levels. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • and people complain about blizzard, everytime you build a char you are at risk of the server just going down out of sight after hrs and hrs of getting to rank-38 titan whatever=/ da should have taken control from the start and created a user db...I´m tired of playing on other peoples pos home box´s=/ if your going to serv at least build a decent rig...LAF

  • 6 in one hand, half dozen in the other.... The programmers made the game so easy to mod...that everybody and thier borther are modding it. I feel everyone´s pain about losing all thier characters....But if people would not cheat when MPing...or run mods not specically OK´ed by the Server host...Elite wouldn´t be going down (I´m not on the Elite Server...But I understand) Need to start a campaign to pester MS about fixing the FLserver so that we HAVE the tools we need to check for these modders and cheaters. -Arg -Narf

  • Good to hear! Elite is probably the only truely good server I´ve seen, but it was getting &quot;unplayable&quot; with all the crashing and cheating. Yesterday I had a guy in a Banshee drop a single mine that did 10,000+ damage and destroyed my Eagle in 1 hit. I don´t mind having to rebuilding my character at all if it makes the server better.

  • I´m kinda relieved that the server was cleared before I started, but I´m also sorry for those legitimate players who lost their profiles. I really need to ask...how exactly will the password protection reduce cheating/MODing? I noticed that the password was included with the announcement, so anyone who sees the post can join. On the other hand, the cheaters would be aware that their profiles could be lost, if the instability problem surfaces again. So maybe that could discourage some of them...or at least make them use another server. Anyway, I hope it works! <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • The password will stop the random server hopping smacktard from getting in. That´s probably 90% of the attempts made. It will make it easier for those that have been playing there to get in and and make it a better community all around in the server. The Elite server has more than enough clients to keep it full already. The password will stop the casual drifters that play for a few hours never to return and &quot;cheat testers&quot; from popping in to try out the latest hack. That´s my .02. Thanks Elite Admin(s).

  • about 100 for me <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> who cares, at least a reason to play again ^_^ and I was anyway since last week not on elite, as I said at least a reason to play again <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • Christ people, I cant believe you are whining about rebuilding a character that took you all of 5 days to make. I played the game for less than 5 days, and I had a loaded Eagle with Class 9 weapons...all from simply doing missions legally. This game is WAY easy right now...this isnt that big of a deal. I´m not sure how rebuilding/password locking the server will change anything, but it wont stop me from playing. Elite is still better than everything else I´ve tried in the global lost so far. And it´s one of the few servers where the Admins actually give a crap about stopping cheaters. Actually, since they are restarting anyways, I wonder if they could alter the prices of stuff to make it harder to get. Making class 9 weapons cost $250,000 or even half a million a piece would make the game last longer. <img src=´http://sadisticsavior.home.att.net/ass.jpg ´>


  • Well in defense of some of us who don´t have a lot of time to play this game...that would be me! <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> It can take us a while longer to get our characters up and at the higher levels... not that doing this is bad or anything...I agree it should be done... just sucks.. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_sad.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> oh well...ahhh...now I´m over it, heh heh <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

  • hmmm, does the game remember the password uve entered? cause i dont want to enter like 30 times the pass and then notice that the server is still full... <img src=smilies/icon_smile_blush.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>
