Why isn't there a Portal big red banner saying server is down?

I saw a problem trying to play in game. Came to the Forum and saw several threads with people reporting serves issues.

So the question stands. Why isn't there a prominent banner in the Portal explaining we are having an issue, and some informed comment of what timeframe for resolution.

Come on WG. Stuff sometimes happens at the servers. Hamsters sometimes need replacing. That's ok. But any reputable outward facing company would by now (this is been going for an hour now), have said something in their Portal.

Because as long as you can give money to wg, the game is working perfectly :Smile_trollface:

edit: it's probably more likely that it would take them just as much time to program a server down banner that doesn't cause more bugs as it would to fix the current issue

Game worked for me about an hour ago.

Did a restart; waited for a Tanks update to happen, watched Drach’s Sedlitz vid, then tried again and it worked.

Maybe because  the server isn’t down for most of us . You are going to put a banner up saying server is down because 3 people can’t get on the site .

I am close to speechles..

I unsubbed him after years of learning from him after seeing that Throw live on stream because he didn't like what the team was doing.

I thought I would watch this video and learn about the DEV Blog.

It's One Long rambling RANT about CVS and WG and Insulting CV players like I have never heard before.

I say I dont play CVs because they are too easy,  but his takes it to a new low that I have never heard ANYONE go to,  much less a former CC.

What happened to this guy?

I honestly thinks he plays this game too much.  The balance in this game is really bad and I think he's wedded to this game for monetary reasons so anything that makes it worse just drives him up the wall.

Shouldn't be. When I worked in database back-end development, we had a reserved section (invisible most of the time), in the customer facing web just for this purpose. In the very rare cases we had a server issue, we posted a message and refreshed the front-end. Nothing to it.
