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.

  • Permanently extend double RP rate?

    I know I'm not the only one that's enjoyed the increased rate for RPs this month. The more I thought about it, the more I realized we've been getting the RPs/hr since...TEC became part of Skotos. Is there any way this could become the new norm? I think it's helped bring more people IC and stay IC as it feel slightly more rewarding.

      Yeah, the increased rate is what moved me to continue subbing as premium. Also the last month of half off for stat increases. I enjoy the double rps because it basically makes all purchase essentially 'half-off'.

      I am not opposed to this idea at all.

        Agreed. This increased rate kept me subscribed. With events like Cullaiden Island, it's good to be able to work on your character in reasonable timetables, not a glacial pace.
        Those who are afraid of the dark have never seen what the light can do.

          Yeah, I think this might keep people subbing. It’ís a good idea.

              Greatness takes time to get proper recognition.

                  I think this speaks more to really awesome changing promotional events over just a static RP boost. I would love to see this promotion being one of the main ones in the rotation that is for sure!

                    Back to 4 RPs an hour. Boo.

                    I wonder what the new promotion is gonna be?

                      What about something like, 50 or more people online double RP's gets turned on? I like the idea of this rate of RP's all the time, but maybe as an alternative should it be a hard no.

                      You mean it's true?
