I just recently went to start a boosting match on DOOM to get the 50 kills and 100 kills achievements.

I had some error about failure to arbitrate, and next thing I know my game froze.

I rebooted my XBOX and now it passes every connection test except for XBOX Live itself.

I know I'm not banned as the Z: is 0000 0000

What the hell?

I think it is cuz I was playing NHL and put in halo to play with a friend and I couldn't get on xbox live. I thought it was my connection even tho that's never happened to me before and I was just told that my friend got kicked off of live as well

Yeah it is
Also xbox.com too
they are most likely fixing the F8ck ups caused by yesterdays downtime.
Makes me laugh though on the status screen on xbox.com its says everything is up and running...yeah sure
But anyay dont panic be back on soon...I hope

Nope...it's not your imagination...it's really down again. Same thing happened to me as I was laying the smack down on "When You Were Young" in GH 3!!!

I don't know. I was playing SWTFU and I got a notification that is was disconnected from Live. I checked all my settings and nothing. I know I'm not banned either, but this is confusing. I tried getting on my profile on Xbox.com, but I can't get to "My Xbox"

It seems it's down again, but whatever. Hopefully it'll be up again soon.

So close to finishing an expert challenge in Rock Band 2 with someone who never plays on expert vocals.... and he was doing good. :( Sadness.

I hate Live being down!!
Stupid Xboxes that RRoD so I can only play my DLC when connected to Live... and then can't play at all because of Live being down. Ahhhh.

Haha ok, so there WERE issues with the update yesterday, I wasn't the only one having problems then. Some of my arcade games came up that they weren't paid for, and I wasn't buy 'em again. And yeah, to XBox.com to message someone and it says the page is unavailable. I, too, thought I was banned or something until I read I'm not the only one with this problem. It JUST worked for me a few hours ago, so it must have just gone down within the past 3 hours I guess?

It just went down for me about 10 minutes ago, actually.

Grats! I'm thinking about sitting down and playing the Duke myself. If live is up later I'll hit up a friend to try and get some Duke Matches in haha. That or find someone on my friends list with Castle Crashers so I can get that last achievement...

I was just playing Crackdown with a friend who was helping get some achievements and then all of a sudden I get disconnected.

So I turned my 360 off and booted it up again, BAM, same problem.

I thought it was just me, thank God it isn't. Even the Xbox.com site is down.

I wonder what the hell is going on over at Microsoft.

Ok, well now I'm thoroughly pissed off. I get two days a damn week off, meaning really I get a total of 3 hours to access XBox Live before I have to go to sleep to wake up and go to work. I was alright with the first 24 hours but, ugh, ok, now I really DO want a free game.

...watch it be an arcade title I already own, or one that I have to repurchase thanks to yesterday's update.

I was supposed to work today but the park closed due to rain (Marineland, Ontario) so I have today, tomorrow and Thursday off.

No big loss for me.

Guess I'll fire up SKATE and do some freeskate :D

ApochWeiss
10-01-2008, 04:22 AM
Well one of my favorite starts it wipping out my Queen right off the start to keep him from trying anything stupid in the mid field but I keep falling for the same trick as he opens up both Bishops and Knights. Ah well tomorrow Ill get some payback.

No, no, no, never whip the Queen out until the very end of the match! Use roughly half your pawns at 1 square at a time to advance, leaving enough room to stealthily attack with your bishops when your opponent has exhausted his/her pawns. Have the queen take out the Rooks and have the knight jump the queen...that is...if you know what I mean...

And a cookie to anyone who gets the reference at the very end of that quoate.

That's not the point though. The xbox 360 system was developed to be ONLINE all the time! Whether you are playing multiplayer or not. We live in 2008 and an on demand world. Video games have evolved. When you pay for a service you should get the service. This is now going on over 24 hours of no service plus the time now. If not something free it just needs to be to push the renewal date back one day for every membership. That's plenty fair.

We are aware that only a select number of people are able to connect, Live is a very delicate and fragile thing. Just give them a few minutes and it should fine. Sorry for any inconvenience it might have caused.

I insulted America, how our (Canada's) dollar is worth more, how we don't try to stop immigration and how we didn't get bombed and it made them leave the session, then XBL crashed.

It just keeps jumping in and out. It's back down for me again. When you're doing a major upgrade like this, you have to run several tests on a small partitioned part of your server before pushing it out to the whole network. I really think Microsoft has neglected this for a year and a half with the release of Vista and the new Office and now the development of the new LIVE. If it takes time to perfect it, then just take your time. Push the fall update back to a winter or a spring update. Everyone has to always play catch up. I mean, these guys are supposed to be the brains of the IT world.

Actually, your dollar is worth less (1 USD = 1.06 CAD). ;)

This happens every time they do "maintenance". I don't know why they don't just come out and say, "We are going to be doing maintenance for 24 hours. Live will then be up for 12-24 hours while we discover the massive amount of bugs we created with our maintenance and then it will be down for another 24 hours while we run maintenance on the maintenance."

I'd laugh if it was down so they could release the NXE early.

No. They should say: "Sorry. We will be performing maintenance of Xbox Live for the next 2-3 days because we rushed it and fucked up pretty badly but are too chicken shit to really say anything about it. So please enjoy your offline experience while we try to fix our hilly billy of a mistake. Sorry for being dumb."

I think there was a problem with other games as well because I have been playing GH 3 tonight and tracking stats on the official GH community page and there were several items that weren't updating properly. I sent a msg to the forum mods and they didn't reply. There was a post in their forums that said the page would be undergoing maintenance yesterday...ironic, huh? There was a later post...today actually, that said everything was back up and running properly...but it wasn't and that's what I was telling the mod. Anyway...the XBOX world is screwed right now...from many angles.

my friend would agree, he thought it was coming out 12 EST and Live has been screwy so he's been pissed. Then someone said they usually do XBLA downloads at 1:15 PST, so i told him and he's still gonna try staying up for it lol.

The funniest thing about it was that two weeks ago, we were discussing the Nintendo, and I stated "Can you imagine what can be done with games like that today? Use modern technology, but take it back to the 8-bit days." I think this might be the start of it. :Bounce:

XBL is down again. Just finished a 1-on-1 game in DOOM, netting me the 50 kills achievement. Went to send the guy a MSG saying come back, we can finish, and everything froze. Rebooted, now all my connection tests pass except for the XBL part. Z remains at 0000 0000, so banning is not responsible.

I just turned on my system three different times. First time, couldn't sign onto Live at all. The second time, it signed me on, but everything was moving very slowly. The third time, it signed me on, then when I started to play a game, I got the "disconnected from Xbox Live" message.

I thought the people complaining all day Monday were being pretty silly, since we all knew about the downtime well in advance. But this is two days later now, and we're still having issues... so I'm ready to jump on the bandwagon and agree that it's getting ridiculous.

Really? A free game? You pay for their service and as such have agreed to their terms and conditions.

Xbl is a complicated thing and 99% of the time they bring an amazing service and great content. Sometimes it needs to be worked on to keep it running smoothly. Cut em some slack.

It is a big possibility my friend and I've tried getting on Live for the majority of the day so far and no luck. Also a big hint to there being a problem with Live is when you don't automatically download the update for Live when you start up the 360.

Allow me to go indepth.

A certain COD4 player got on my nerves last week, constantly voice spamming me ingame with the following;

"Shut up kid"
"You wigger"
"Redneck cracker"
"Go fuck yourself honkey"
"You inbred white fucking cracker"

and other racial slurs towards white people.

Finally, I cracked and said "SHUT YOUR DAMN <nword> MOUTH!"

I sent him a message saying the following:

"Do you want to know why black people were enslaved for hundreds of years? It's because of idiots like YOU. You should go kill yourself right now, you big lipped fiend."

I had more, but I forget what it was >.>

Needless to say, he sent me a MSG back saying "Ha! I got a camera phone and I just took a picture to send to Microsoft to get you banned!"

I messaged him back and said, sarcastically, "Ooh! You got a camera phone? I didn't know you guys knew how to use technology! What happened to banging a stick on the ground?"

See what happens when you piss me off? He deserved it. Not only did he spam me with white hatred messages, he spammed anyone who told him to shut up and play the damn game.

Thats the thing though... You are comparing two completely different services. When i played World of Warcraft, the servers would often fuck up after the weekly maintence, that didn't mean they'd always refund the time lost from the server being down.

People asking for a free arcade game is completely ridiculous. Its been what? 2 days? Yes we have a right to be angry and complain that its not working, maybe even demand for our live subscriptions to be extended for 2 days but they'll fix. Even if Live was down for a week, it still would not equel the cost of an arcade game.

Anyhow. I gave up playing Halo 3 because i just kept constantly getting disconnected. I'll go do something else for tonight and hopefully it'll be fixed tomorrow.

How did they not do that? The update caused unforeseen problems and they took it back down to fix those. So since they didn't know that these problems would occur they still needed to tell us it would be down? Would you rather play on that laggy, constantly dropping you crap; or on the smoothest connection possible? Your losing what .60? You throw more than that away all the time I'm sure (at least most of you).

First off, read my signature. It'll help you.

Second, you're really not getting the point. People DO have a legitimate reason to complain when something takes longer than expected. I'm not saying I agree with all the idiots on the xbox.com forums that are saying things like "Grr I'm gonna sue Microsoft who's with me? I want a free game gimme gimme gimme!" But I'm 100% fine with people voicing their complaints when they have a complete right to do so. If my cable company tells me I can't watch television for 24 hours, but then that turns into 72, I'd probably be upset. Yes, unforseen things happen, and it isn't as if they're putting out a poor service on purpose... but people are eager to play games and only want to do so when they were told they could.

If you took your car into get fixed on a Monday and they told you, "yeah, you can pick it up tomorrow." Then you go there on Tuesday and it's still not ready... and it still isn't ready on Wednesday. Or Thursday. Chances are good you are going to complain... and chances are also good that someone in the mechanic's waiting room isn't going to get in your face and say, "OH BOO HOO HOO you're losing what? Three days of driving? Get over it!!!"
