I would love feedback on this project to see what others would like me to include as well as additional information on any games. Please feel free to email me with your input.

MMO Scheduled Maintenance Times

Updated: Sept 16, 5:48 PM PST

The following is a list of scheduled MMO server maintenance times. While all games may experience server issues and the need for emergency rolling restarts at one time or another, this list was created to show a comparison of game maintence schedules, mostly because I was curious, but I'm sure the information could be interesting to other IT people.

If you would like to see a game added to this list please submit the name and a link to the game's official forums and I will add it.

I typically try to link to forum sticky posts from Community Managers or specific official game website's pages that list server maintenance information. However, I have marked some games below as "Inconclusive" as I couldn't find information on them, so I used player feedback posts to gauge the days and times. If you find I have incorrect information, please submit a link to a game's official website or forum with the server maintenance times listed. If a fan site has better information, send it to me and I will list it below and update the times, but I will leave "Fan Reported" in the heading.

The games listed are currently not in any order, but I may change that as I add more.
