No? How about testing a patch before you apply it?



How about thinking before you type?

Back in my day you were lucky if the servers came back online at all! All you young whippersnappers are spoiled with your fifteen minute server reboots. Why, back in the day the server could go down for weeks! When it finally came back online it had to boot through a DDOS Blizzard and it was uphill both ways!

CCP, I'm still sore you took my Jukebox from me, but you take your time getting the servers back online. You just stay relaxed and do your best. Most of us are cheering for you.

What is plan B ? .. plan A is fubar , obviously What's the disaster recovery procedure ? Are there emergency procedures in place / in the books ? What's the plan when you hit the wall ?



And to add to the " rotating downtimes " comment earlier , it would make sense ,in fairness to all players to implement a 1 hour shift a day in the downtime so everyone has equal evening access .. Australians must be ripping their hairs off .

Lemon time for a double ^^


9/10 they took a snapshot and could easily roll back.
9/10 they have a backup from within a week that they could roll back to.
0/10 is the consideration for fairness for timezones. After all, you pick the time where there is the least amount of users impacted. Most companies would rather impact 5k clients based primarily in Australia then 10k based if Europe, US, etc. It's a simple numbers game.

Why would plan A be fubar? Until they decide that the amount of time needed to get the patch working would be unfeasible for keeping the server down(read more then 12 hours) they're likely to try to finish adding in the patch.

Just keep calm and wait.

Breaking news from the year 2027. After many years of investigation, CCP managed to find the reason behind the 2015 failed update, which they were not able to fix to this day.

CCP urges the players not to rush to any rash conclusions and wait another few years.

Sry, couldn't help :P

OK, time to provide some food for thought:

Suppose there is an ant at each vertex of a triangle and the three ants simultaneously crawl along a side to the next vertex. The probability that no two ants will encounter one another is 2/8, since the only two cases in which no encounter occurs are when the ants all go left (clockwise) -- LLL -- or all go right (counterclockwise) -- RRR. In the six other cases -- RRL, RLR, RLL, LLR, LRL, and LRR -- there will be an encounter.

Now - what is the probability of no encounter for dodecahedron ?






Also: If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how long would it take a one legged monkey to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?

you know you should just remove what ever you implemented codevice today. start the server as it were before DT and salv the problem with the code without the pressure of xxxxx players wanting to play the game.

stress often creat bad solutions on easy fixed problems. better to take your time with it. :)
