Whether they comp players or not. I doubt it will happen with people demanding it or feel because they lost a few hours it somehow killed their month sub. **** happens, we will be online soon enough.

Could not connect to the specified address. Odds are that you have not established an internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong.

maybe its everones interweb connection??

Don't rush the repairs on. I aim on holiday and won't be back to play until the 25th. So if you have it up and running by the Friday before that would be ideal.

To the rest of you chill out it will be fine in a few days. Let them go home and have a good sleep, maybe a beer, and then come into the office late and have a nice relaxed discussion about it.

Doesn't matter late next week is also good. If you don't think its going to go up before I get back give me a bit of warning I'll take another week off, but accommodation for 5 is tricky at short notice here in Sardinia.

So ciao buonosera, P

Silver this is an interesting concept. I would hope that they have full back ups. Why not roll back to the pre downtime state? It has now been 5 1/2 hours. Surely there is something fundamentally flawed with the new patch. Or is it in fact a mass hardware issue. It would be interesting to understand what type of fault this is.

I run a software business that develops applications and I know how frustrating that this can be, but as my clients state (and we are the clients here) "keep me up to date with all the detail so I can be assured that you are working in the most professional way to solve my problems"

Now getting officially disgruntle but also understand the nuances of software.

Just to put the "full backup" nonsense to bed.

You run a software company, yes? You're aware of the concept of backup rotation schemes, yes? CCP doesn't do a full backup every time it backs up the system, that'd be amazingly cost prohibitive. It's all incremental.

It's entirely possible that a code change made weeks/months ago is causing a conflict today. The only way to fix something like that, would be to rollback to the point of that code change, and move forward. It's not like they can just grab the backup off the shelf from yesterday and spin it up. It's entirely possible that the last stable backup they can pull might be too old to use.

Just imagine the fits that would be pitched if CCP said "Guys, we got to roll back to 7/1 to find a stable build. Sorry, 15 days are gone. Good luck!

Such a rollback would be great LOL then I have my 100% refining again.

I agree with Wingman8701 Boirelle, more then 6 hrs of finding a problem is stupid.
Rollback the server to the point where it all is working fine and sort it out on the test server.

It is not called test server for nothing, did CCP put the updates there first and see if it worked?

Pages are being written faster then I can read it LOL.

CCP maybe an update how it is going and perhaps tell us what the issue(s) are.

Oh the irony... after years of warning to put a long skill in training just before a new expansion rolls out, because lots of code is changing and something might go wrong, the big update goes through without a hitch, and a supposed "minor" patch tanks the system Roll

In any company or business, and even in everyday life, a lack of information, turns in to unsatisfied customers.

After scrolling down some pages, I really miss the clear information given by the (team) that is currently trying
to resolve this problem, and as someone else bravely mentioned, we are your customers, and need to now
why our investment is'nt working for us, for more then 6 hours now allready.

Please use all channels to inform the people, that at the end of the month, make sure your company can give
you all a paycheck, and deserve a lot more information about where this situation is currently at...
