The launcher/server for Tranquility is currently in 'VIP Mode'. I haven't seen that before and wondered what it means and who the VIPs are ? Big smile

Nobody could have possibly asked this question before. Clearly I'll get no results by using the search function. Better make a new thread.

It's also easier to just answer the question then be a **** about it.

You know what's not easier? Accepting criticism without whining. But it's a good strategy for personal growth.

You know what two things are not the same? Offering the OP sarcasm and offering the OP constructive criticism. Learning the difference is a good strategy for personal growth. Roll

this post contains no usable content. it is identical to the ones above it sans the second post, except in that it only vaguely attacks other players, rather than directly.

I am the VIP. Blink

At 11:00 the cluster automatically goes into VIP mode, kick everyone off and then starts processing the shutdown (mostly finalising persisting state). Once shut down daily database scripts are run (some are run shortly before downtime, such as fleet fight dedication requests are mapped prior to downtime), the server then autostarts and is generally available between 11:06 and 11:08.

If there is a deployment then we have turned off autostart prior to 11:00 and manually start the cluster once all deployment activity is completed. On those days the server is normally available between 11:14 and 11:24.

My cat has successfully logged in under VIP mode before.



Im starting to think CCP is catering to cats at this point.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

Or I can ask my queen to whip up a cold shower.

CODE is just a bunch of pirates; smart, organized pirates. It doesn't help to rage at them because that is exactly what they want. Dust yourself off and get back on your feet, you don't even have to talk to them.

OMG that's so very cool:

I am the VIP.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.
