Is this even possible, 10 hours maintenance only 1 week after this 14h extanded thing last week.
Why this game is the only one to take so long to apply a patch, and is not able to do this the night for eu server?
This start to be really boring

    Guess the maintenance started early because the game is kicking me every time I try to log in. PC/NA

    I had to use a VPN to connect to PC/NA. PC/EU works fine.

    The previous extended downtime was for hardware updates, not for software updates.

    This week's extended downtime is for software updates, or whatever exactly it is they're doing for the Cyrodiil test.

    There's a Cyrodiil test?

    I'm hoping whatever they install or tweak corrects the issues some have been noticing here: https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/647965/something-is-seriously-wrong-with-combat-performance-this-patch

    Would they be doing those tests on console? The banner says just NA servers but my impression of past tests were that they were limited to PC.

    It's all about me, they should call me directly and ask me when I will not be playing. Then schedule this maintenance at Non-Veinblood times.

    Yeah!

    So couldn't they have put off the Cryodill test for a week so it's not 2 weeks of extra long maintenance back to back. Will we have to have another round of just regular maintenance next week? Is 10 hours a week the new normal?

    The Cyrodiil test starts on PC EU and says NA and consoles later in the week

    I am curious as to why a patch that has gone through QA, takes 10 hours to apply.

    People are on and on about what time would be appropriate. Less time is the only time that would be appropriate. Fortnite is usually ready to go in 15 minutes, and that game is huge. You could do the patching at any time of day if it's only going to take 15 minutes.

    I would love to have an explanation of why they do it during daytime for eu, i mean, im paying eso+ but its gonna be already 2 days that i can’t play for me with the last week maintenance, i dont get why they are not able to run it during nightime

    "daytime for eu"

    EU: 7am to 5pm (Paris)
    US East Coast: 1am to 11am

    Patch time: 3am to 1pm

    So basically, you are asking staff to come in at 1am to monitor the patch.

    The server not been available 8:00 to 18:00 UTC means that all those countries in RED cannot play the game on their prime time. Those in Green cannot play the game at all for the day. So they lost 1 day of ESO+ and since that is compounded with every weekly maintenance they closing to lose 10% of their monthly ESO+ AT LEAST.

    As for having to get up at 1am to do the patch, they are up at 3am to do the patch either way. Except if they are at PST timezone which is just midnight.

    It all bogs down to which amount of customers will make less disgruntled. If that is PST time zoners or half the planet as you see from the image above.

    FYI I dont say not to do maintenance to the game or what time they do it, I just point that arguing against fellow players because you do not understand that might be in timezone they cannot play at all is the issue.

    On a week day prime time is not 8am to 6pm UK/9-7 CET, as a significant portion of people are at work (not all obviously). Maybe people would lose an hour of their prime time or so, but they haven't lost all of their time.
