The Tranquility cluster has been taken offline as of 11:45 UTC in order to enable us to address several issues that have occurred this morning.

We currently have no ETA for the server to be brought back online, however we will update this forum thread as and when more information becomes available.

We apologize for this unexpected downtime, and any inconvenience it may cause.

UPDATE - 11:45 UTC - Tranquility Offline
UPDATE - 11:55 UTC - Tranquility has been brought back on line for testing
UPDATE - 12:11 UTC - Tranquility is back online

Why did u bring TQ up 15 minutes early when this problem has existed for at least 2 hours? This should have been looked at during the scheduled DT.

Thanks for the official word, wouldn't want to chance losing a ship due to some socket deciding it didn't want anything to do with me

Derp - the problem probably didn't exist until they brought the servers up after downtime.

Any more sage advice for people that already know how to do their jobs better than you?

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

I think this is something we are starting to get used to.

Unfortunatley, In australia, DT hits us at 9pm, so we get 3 hours after work, and then hope to christ CCP have their arses in gear for the DT ..... I would say, out of the last 20 DT's, atleast 50% have had to be extended for some reason or another, and yet, I have all the patience in the world for CCP, the work they are doing and the efforts they put into trying to get something that is broke, un-broke ...

if I can wait, im sure the rest of you can to...

keep up the good work CCP

This actually Sounds serious. Hope i'm wrong. Could you tell us in what "general area" the problems occured. Did the servers go Boom or has a logfile stopped working? Just so we can get a an ide'a of the timetable! :)
