Warhawk servers will be down today between 13:00 and 15:00 to recieve scheduled maintenance.
How much maintenance they need.......................... .......
Go into your filter settings and change the Rank field to "My Rank." It worked for me and I'm able to join any game I try to join in seconds.
Hopefully adding more ranked servers
Fine, I don't finish work till 17:00 anyway.
That server room must be like a sauna. You can imagine the ps3's in that server room talkin to each other like, "Cor bro, its a bit hot in 'ere innit? haw haw" "Yeah mate, i've been working me chips off 'ere, its loverly". And 1 lone 360 is sitting amongst them, "LET ME OUT!! AAAHH I'M GONNA RING OUT!!!!"
Kind of funny how you had to bring the xbox 360 into this. Feel better now? Even when the xbox 360 have nothing to do with something that happens you Sony fanboys have to mention it. If you are frustrated because you have to wait 15 minutes to play a game and Sony's network is not capable of handling it you don't have to take it on the xbox 360 or xbox live.
actually bladestar, sonys network can handle it. They just need more servers. The network has very little to do with the issue, if a server is full its full, they just need to add more.
I know what you mean. My PS3 doubles as a heater in the winter time. I'm glad it's so durable but man oh man does it get a room warm and quick.
Calm down dude. It was a joke. haha?
I wouldn't worry about bladestar especially with the swinger icon he got going on. The guy trolls the PS3 news more than he plays his console like he has something to prove to us PS3 owners.
@Integra0019 - Actually... you are probably not to bright to see it.. but I never go into PS3 article and pop a flame. I response to you Sony fanboys comments. My comments are responses to stupid comments like " And 1 lone 360 is sitting amongst them, "LET ME OUT!! AAAHH I'M GONNA RING OUT!!!!"... And I response with facts, like, "You have to wait up to 15 minutes to join a game" a lie? Nope... I didnt make that up.. it's common knowledge.
He drop the bait and I happily took it. Ofcourse you Sony fanboys want to be able to flame the other camp.. but don't like when the other camp does the same. Blame it on [Shadow Flare]... you should start training your animals to stop barking if they are not ready to fight.
Either get off you asss and go and get a PS3 and get warhawk or just shutup till Halo 3 comes out. I will see you in Halo 3, dog! I want to see you in warhawk! I want to battle with you my friend.
Also i am not trying to dog you, i am just trying to get you to get a PS3. You were going to get one once right?
Get off you asss and get with the real people! Get a PS3!
a lot of maintenance for game that only have couple thousands play
i am just play around
Do the math. Yesterday at least there were 1000+ servers online averaging roughly 12 people each one. That gives 10000+ online players.
hopefully this will sort out some of the issues we've all be having trying to join games!
psn id.... Mighty_Douche..... give us an add if your up for some team pwnage!!
They could be doing anything... adding ps3's, cleaning, adding more air conditioners, checking and replacing ps3's, running maintanence on the ps3's. Ahh the database techs... Im staring at a data room right now... Im at work :(
I just got home from work, graveyard shifts for the win.
Anyways whatever, Warhawk has already proved itself. Maintenance is no biggie.
Nice the maintenance must have done something, i can now get into ranked matchs faily easy :D and not having the rooms full problem when theres still 6places free
You can always play a game right away in warhawk. I've had the game since it launched; however, sometimes the ranked games are hard to join because of all the users. This is something that will have to be sorted out, but it's not a large deal. It could have been much worse.
..but I hate down-time.
I'd like to start Hawkin' out ASAP, Incog...so don't keep me waiting.
If you read the comments posted at the source link, it says maintenance is already done...and it took them an hour instead of two.
Good or bad, I guess we'll find out.
Next time, let us know if it's GMT or not -_-'!
Come on now, everyone knows EST is the only true time zone ;-)
Have you got the game yet? Still waiting for that pay check are we?
Show me a online game that doesnt do maintenince and i will show u a game that no one plays online.
I like how bladestar takes what other ppl have written and makes it his own talking pionts. Kinda like Fox news and The White House!
Its kinda like The Mart and him saying Warhawk isnt AAA because he adds up all the reviews he can find that are under 9. Funny stuff
Im still waiting on that stress test for the 360 now that i think of it.
anyway ppl that have played it understand why its so fun and the ppl that bash it will never understand unless they buy thmeself a PS3
Me... getting a PS3 and being in loving warhawk got nothing to do with my comments. Warhawk is currently the best PS3 game. Fact. Warhawk is having some connection problems fact.
And yes.. I will buy a PS3 probably by next week.. and I will take pictures and put it on this site... and warhawk of course.
Does that mean I will be blind and start flaming the xbox 360 on every article.... hehe no way. To me the xbox 360 is still my favorite console and with games like Halo 3, Mass Effect, etc.. that's not going to change. But I am first a gamer... and I don't want to missout on a great game like warhawk... will I become a Sony fanboy blinded by Sony's brain washing.. and buy everythign they throw at me? Games like Lair just because is on the PS3... I leave that you Sony fanboys... I will only buy the games that apeal to me. I am not driven by hype or fanboysm to play games.. You want an example? Take a look a my gamertag... do you see Bioshock there? ohh wow! how can that be!? simple... My primary interest is online multiplayer... specially on the areas of RTS, FPS, and RPG... and some MMOs. which is why I feel so strong about the XBOx 360 and xbox live. I am not saying that I will not get some aventure game from time to time.. but it's just not my cup of tea.
Warhawk is my cup of tea and I want it. Halo 3 (online) COD4(online) my cup of tea... I was a PC only gamer... Console multiplay is somewhat a downgrade... they are getting better.. and xbox 360 is the closes you can get to it offering even better features like game invites, gamertag, gamerscore, single global login and name...
Maybe that can show you a little about me... I am not your typical xbot that praises and play everything that comes out on the xbox 360 or any other console...
@#$@#$ the PS3 @#$@$% the xbox 360..... Long live the games... the system that offers the games I want to play and that brings new experiences in the online arena.. that's what I want.
Why don't I own a PS3? Seriously base on what I told you... outside of warhawk... and currently owning an Xbox 360... what else is worth $600? Resistance!? give me a break... the PS3 does not even have 1 RTS.
Who are you kidding, you are a troll plain and simple. Btw, warhawk doesnt have connection issues. It is overcrowded moron.
Amazing. The people who complain the most about the downtime are the xbots who don't even play the game. And better still, people who troll the PS3 news so much, and get confused with their own posts that it is clear that it is not a single person "manning" the account - but a bunch of trolls watching for PS3 related news to jump onto.
Warhawk - as decided by the gaming community by the time they take to play it - is a AAA title.
Having overcrowded servers is the problem any game publisher want. Having nearly 1000 servers overcrowded is a dream come true. Having a 1000 overcrowded servers within a week... well - it is a clear rebuke to the "reviewers" who gave this game a low score and to those who want to use these "reviews" as a measurement for what a AAA title is.
Warhawk is a AAA title. The enormous response from the gaming community proves it. Those who still try to argue otherwise just embarrass themselves even more.
why are you even making so many comments in here?
it seems you're just trying to annoy all these people who are simply enjoying their PS3's good games.
Thats cool if you chose the xbox360. But both consoles have good games out and have a good line up of games to look forward to in the next few months.
all that matters is that you buy the console that has the games you are interested in most.
Personally i don't like playing First person shooters, and thats what the majority of the best 360 games are.
although, I 'try' to play Warhawk, though i'm not very good.
I know why, its because they are scared that their console is going to break at any min!
Xbots...warhawk is an awesome game! Why? Because i have it and i play it. You can get your frustrations out in this game. It is the most fun you can ever have. Do not knock the game until you have played it.
Bladestar...you need to use your next check and get a PS3! You might as well get one now since you know you want to play UT3, Haze and MGS4 and Killzone 2.
Warhawk rules man...also...think about it...there are over 1000 servers at any time in warhawk...in the beta..there was never over 100 servers...so sony never knew that it was going to be this big! (I guess they knew..but they never experienced it till now)
Warhawk is AAA...you do not have to be 9.0 to 10.0 to be AAA.
Heavenly Sword is AAA also...
Bladestar, it is not a fact that you have to wait 15 mins to play a game. jsut last night i was able to join the first game i selected, sometimes its not as easy, but 15 minutes? Maybe if you're a dummy and keep selecting the first servers on the list. It's easy to find a server that's not close to being full towards the middle of the server list.
As far as what games are good:
Well, if you're into fighting games, Tekken 5 DR is a blast to play online, it gets a little laggy sometimes, but it doesn't really affect your combos.
If you like baseball, 07 the show is prob the best baseball game out there, better than 2k7.
resistance is great and so is motorstorm.
I don't know how many games you need but that ought to be enough until the big names come out.
PS3 is worth EVERY penny of my 600 bucks. Games are great, and getting better, online is free, can watch HI DEF media (if you have the TV), runs extremely quiet, looks nice in your media set up, reliable. Plus HOME is coming soon, oh and that is free too. 125 fps camera coming out, great FULL games for download available and more planned (not just old skool re hash), beautiful and innovative XMB menu system. UNCOMPRESSED sound.
Plays ps2/ps1 games (biggest game library on planet Earth).
As for Warhawk, I had some problems getting on the other night, but I waited for half an hour, and went online again and .....boom! All my local low ping Sony dedicated were there again. I think at the time I was trying to get on the servers were being added/maintained or something. Because once I pinged them I can join any of them easy. Sometimes it is very crowded, but that is testament to hao popular and addictive this game is. Its even better than BF2 (apart from no mouse and keys).
Yeah it IS worth 600 bones IMO, every penny.
and buy whatever F***ing console you want. I don't like the Wii, but the ps3 and the xbox both have appeal to me.
