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.

  • The Culling Veteran Character Package Awarding

    Hi Folks,
    Now that the culling is underway, here's some information on when Veteran Character Packages will be awarded:

    First, we are informed when a character dies, how they die, and who killed them, as it happens, so that we can review that nothing has taken place outside the OOC rules of the competition.

    Second, we need to take the time to calculate the right level of VC Package for the slain character.

    Third, we will be releasing names of deceased characters ICly after a period of time.

    VC Packages will be awarded as your character's name is ICly announced.

    Please wait until you have received your VC Package before deleting your perished character.
