Maintenance for the week of April 15:
• PC/Mac: No maintenance – April 15
• ESO Store and Account System for maintenance – April 16, 8:00AM EDT (12:00 UTC) - 12:00PM EDT (16:00 UTC)
In response to the ongoing issue, the North American PC/Mac megaserver is currently unavailable while we perform maintenance. https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/656543/temporarily-taking-down-the-pts-the-pc-na-live-server

What did you do/are doing during maintenance?

    At least the launcher isn't instantly erroring out, so that's a good sign.

    I'll ask this crowd, would you prefer a company post a10 hour window and then come in 4 hours early, or a company post a 6 hour window and come in an hour later for their maintenance posts?

    Well since maintenance has been extended by four hours I guess I might get some Christmas shopping started.

    Where does it say this? Banner still says maintenance would end 19.00 UTC (11 minutes ago)

    Go to work, spend time with my wife and 2 small kids. I only play eso from 9pm or so until 12pm-1am so server downtimes pretty much never have had any effect on me lol.

    Server came down 8pm (AEST) my time, was cooking, watching a movie then went and read a book till 1am, then went to sleep. After 6am now, still no server so having breakfast and doing some other stuff on the PC. Will get enthusiastic shortly and go start some cleaning, too cold outside yet to do any gardening.

    I will eventually get to play some ESO.

    Sitting in a hospital drinking god awful stuff. Waiting on the IV for the dye, so they can scan me to determine when they can perform the next surgery.

    Yup, nothing enjoyable

    Ouch, sorry to hear that.

    Hope that the results of the scan are auspicious.

    Neither because both would make planning my day difficult.
    That said, the second option would be the worst out of the two because it would mean me sitting at the PC when maintenance was due to end and looking at the server status every few minutes (rather like I am doing now).

    Better communication where we get a message before maintenance is scheduled to end along the lines of,
    'Sorry, but due to circumstances beyond our control, maintenance will not be ending on time.'
    Along with an estimated time or just saying they'll give us an estimated time as soon as they can, that would keep me happy.

    I concur, when I used to work for an MMO we took the first stance of overestimating maintenance and then opening early, we got complaints of people's day being allocated incorrectly or "missing out" on game time because of our policy, but we also took that policy cause it covered most big issues, but we did go over occasionally.

    That said, I find ESO's version a little optimistic, but I know people want instant answers, but I've not found them too bad in getting to us within the hour, which in the corporate world is amazing turnaround time, especially with the all the channels they need to communicate through.

    You hope. That was my plan too, but now it is extended through my entire evening so no ESO for me today, unless it comes back online at least an hour earlier than the estimate.

    The Sims 4 for me for an hour or so. Let's see what sort of a disaster I left the household in last time I played.

    I'm currently a little fed up with MMOs (ESO, and bored with F76), so I play Fallout 4 again after several years, started from new as many mods are no longer available, so my settlements looked strange.

    I played ESO for 5 years, but currently just login for events and daily rewards, and some endeavours.
    So no problem with maintenance.
