[All] Server Restart 0900 PDT 5/4

General Discussion
Hi All,

We will be doing a server upgrade to fix a big at 0900 PDT. Expected downtime is 15 mins.

Changes:
* Fix a bug where the chat server will try to put too many players into the same default channel

Thanks, Classic Games
How about you do not change anything. Having a ton of people in the default channel makes the game feel alive. I dont think anyone feels bad for having alot of players in a default channel. If they do they can go join another channel.
Thanks, now how about that BNET CHAT API?
How long will it take?

This only fixes the server trying to put a lot of people in an almost full channel causing some players to be dumped to the void or get an error code.

Its coming.
Mark, any chance to get the Matchmaking hotfixed?

its coming, they've said its hard to fix.

but yeah, we need this one the most!
Hello, I might be wrong here.. but two things:

First thing, can you fix on map "Avalance" the green camp aggro? when you just an scout it focus the scout (not on all location and it wasnt on the old version.. so thats not nice.. should be fixed)

Second thing, what about maphack? Anything against it in work? I wish... otherwise that hype might be short..

Thx 4 answer :)

People seem to be appearing in W3 EN-18 now, while W3 EN-1 is not full at all. Is this on purpose?

It's not like its hard for people who end up on these channels to write /j W3 EN-1

But I guess some people lack the smarts even for such simple things

It's not that big of a deal. I just think it's good if people are in one channel. It makes the game look more alive.

Hi Mark,

After seeing the change take effect I have to conclude that you did in fact change the channel behaviour again. People are put in consecutive channels (w3 en-1, w3 en-2, etc.) again after each channel reaches 3 persons instead of 15. Please change this back. Having 15+ people per channel makes the game feel more alive. There is no reason for the channels to stack only to 3 by default.
To append to what I said above. I suggest you roll back the changes applied so that we may feel like the game is more lively again.
Maintenance seems to have brought back the issue of putting 1 player per channel on default channels.
