Multiple Downtimes for All Games [Updated: Rest of Phase 1 Times]

Unfortunately, the whole computing world is facing a major crisis right now thanks to Intel and other major processors missing critical security flaws in their architecture. As a result, our ISP is doing a set of emergency updates to all of their hardware. We are getting about a day's notice on this, and we're told that they're going to need to patch each machine multiple times, which very inconveniently means multiple downtimes.

Our TEC and GR games have always been the most vulnerable to downtime, so I'm going to take the care to cleanly shutdown and restart those.

GR: Sunday, Midnight (all times are PT) DONE
TEC: Monday, 10PM

Expect the games to go down 10 minutes before the downtime, to be safe.

The other games tend to be cleaner, so I'm going to let them restart on their own:

Lovecraft: Monday, 9PM
Lazarus: Monday, 9PM
Web Site: Monday, 11PM [this will affect all logins & usage of the new TEC client]
TEC Client: Tuesday, 9PM
USERDB (site login): Tuesday night, midnight

The upgrade windows have all been less than 30 minutes to date, so you can expect games and/or services will be back up within 35-40 minutes of the hour.

I believe this is now a complete list of the first phase of updates, but there will be a second in the near future.

  • New character opportunity?

    Played for a while and been wanting to develop a new character with some sort of backstory IG with someone else; I see everyone with IG families and have always wanted to be part of one. Think it would be fun to have someone to train with, RP with, etc.

    Anyone want to add a new person to their already established family or anyone want to make a new character with me like siblings or something? Open to ideas and character types. PM me!

    A lot of people developed those relationships over the course of playing the game, there's nothing really stopping you from doing that as well, and in fact, would probably have greater long term success, over trying to make it artificially forced.

    Just an idea.

      Sorry, not trying to artificially force anything. I think it's easier said than done; the game can be quite lonely when you're not in any cliques and most people don't even acknowledge you. ☺️ Just wanted to make a new character and have some friends/a friend. My post is really aimed at anyone else wanting some companionship too, I guess. You can disregard it, sorry again to bother you!

        I would be interested in joining a gladitorial league of characters who start at the same time. Train together, hunt together, familial competition. I am betting that the January promotion will be a "new year, new character" thing and will be waiting til the announcement before starting.

          I'm not bothered, or offended, I was just offering an idea, not an order. Just trying to help. Not all help fits all situations.

            That sounds exactly the sort of thing I'd be interested in too as that's the biggest thing I'd enjoy is someone or a group to hunt with at lower levels just to help each other out. I didn't think about the January promotion being so close I think I'll wait and see too. Can't believe 2018 is right around the corner!

              Some of the best memories I have of TEC is low (ish) level groups getting together for outings. The gameworld does have several "groups" that used to get together once a week but that seems to have lessened since I've been back. Low player retention plus personal lives have a way of affecting those sort of things as of late.

              My advice ..... just make your character and keep your ears to the wind. Something will likely come about.

                Black centurions are always interested in fresh blood, come to the northern steps and become part of the family.

                  Ignore The_thief, he doesn't know what he's talking about. Never does.

                    The one negative I see with creating a character who has a backstory with another character: if that other character is no longer played for some reason, it makes it harder to play yours. It's easy enough to mitigate this if you're aware it could happen - just ensure your character's world is not just limited to their companion. Interests and friends of their own, etc.

                    Have fun!
