Downtime Report: Wednesday Night

We had an abrupt and unannounced downtime for all games and services starting sometime after 9pm PT on Wednesday evening. This was due to a massive power outage at our cloud computing facility of the sort that redundant systems are supposed to ensure never happen. After about an hour they were able to diagnose that the power was out. It took a few more hours for them to start restoring service.

At this moment, everything is back up except for Ironclaw and TEC. At the rate they're restoring things, I hope those will be back up in the next 15-30 minutes, but it's entirely in their hands.

As is typically the case with a sudden reboot, TEC and GR have to be rolled back. This is already done with GR. The TEC rollback should be just a few hours due to the more recent backups recently instituted, but I need to get the machine back before I can verify that.

Update: Ironclaw and TEC are now back too. The TEC rollback was 2.5 hours, from 9.30pm PT (when everything crashed) to 7.00 pm PT.

    For those curious,

    A certain building on South Peabody is available to explore for those that can find a way inside. I'm always looking for feedback in ways to improve that building. There is potential for growth and new features so I would appreciate knowing what people like and would like to see more of in there.

    The Muffet residence is being condemned by the police. What does that mean? The structure is being upgraded to make it more interesting. If you are curious my inspiration for what that building should look like, check out: Once it is completed, the building will be "open" for exploration. Be careful where you sit.

    Along with these two buildings, automated missions (quests, tasks or whatever you want to call them) are being developed to encourage your character towards those buildings or at least give them more excuses than curiosity to go inside.

    As always, if your character is interested in investigating a particular part of Arkham, let me know. The city is so large there is always something, somewhere or someThing to learn more about.
