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.

  • Erealite/Soldier of Ereal

    Aren't Erealites different than Soldiers of Ereal? I read a lot of lore a few months back, and now I can't seem to find any of it. There's a lot of history behind it, and I do remember at least that there are two distinct groups.

    Anyone know or have a link to the lore I mysteriously read?

    Erealites are the general term for those who worship Ereal. Soldiers of Ereal are a part of the Cult of Ereal (kinda) who in turn run the Republic's religious buildings, ceremonies, and etc.

    ?sects and ?religion are good spots to look.

      Not sure what link you are talking about, but yes they are different. All Soldiers of Ereal are Erealites, but not all Erealites are Soldiers of Ereal.

      The best example I can think of is:
      Calling someone an Erealite is like calling them a Christian.

      Calling someone a Soldier of Ereal is like calling them a member of the Lambs of Christ (a militant Christian group in the U.S.)
