Sad Don't judge all Americans due to some children(relative use) choose to cry over a lack of a life because they can't log onto EVE. I, for one, am very happy with how CCP is handling this.

Lesser companies, such as Blizzard, will try to work through it while having the game running and players have a terrible time doing anything. On top of that, they would have people play with almost no security and not even let the players know about it. This happened with SWTOR(was kind of funny). At least CCP takes the time to be thorough and FIX the problem.

Out of all the years I've played this game, this is the third time EVER that I've had any issue with the game. I don't know about the rest of you, but that's a pretty damn good track record.

It's not like it's their job or anything, gee fanboys are obnoxious.
Don't get me wrong I love CCP but there is a difference between CCP involvement in eve community (which is respectable/likable) and fixing a major issue with the game we are paying for...

No need to hate. Blink

I was not hating and I'm sorry if you feel offended. Oops

Yeah, I know. I love you too.

A lot of people have been suggesting that it "would have been nice" if they went ahead and did the June 4th update during the down time.

I think it would be great if they did, but I am wondering how do you know that it hasn't been done? How do you know that the update hasn't been made?

When the server was up and in VIP mode, the 'update' would have been downloaded via the patcher if the process were completed.

Because the server was just up and the game didn't patch?

Hacker group LulzSec, the same group that's attacked Sony and Nintendo in the past, has tweeted that it's committed three distributed denial of service attacks against gaming companies today, bringing down EVE Online's Tranquility server, Minecraft's multiplayer services, and the Escapist Magazine's website. EVE Online's CCP has confirmed both the outage and the attack, the Escapist is unreachable at the moment, and Minecraft creator Notch says that things were down, but supposedly service has been restored.

LulzSec hasn't shared a reason for the attacks just yet, but we can only guess it's, as they say, "for teh lulz."

Update: The group has gone after Riot Games' League of Legends servers as well. Attempting to log in to the game gives a "server busy" message, though there's no official word from the company yet.

CCP, please tell us you're prosecuting the little zits.

Wait a minute. It can't be LulzSec -- they were all indicted two years ago.

He's probably reading the tweets from 2 years ago without realising.

It's Monday Morning 04:47am my time. Server Went Down Sunday at around 09:00am. Though while I understand why the Game Server went down, why the hell would forums have to be down all day and all night long yesterday. Time to put this on a completely different server then the game servers so we can be informed of your progress. Launched the Client from the Bin EXE and it says Server Tranq, Status Checking Status 0 players.

Can we get an ETA please.


See this is what happens when you try to fix things that were not broken in the first place. Seems like all this happened once Logging in went to the Launcher VS the Client.

You don't know much about IT in general, do you? "IT" is the short form for the computer/software stuff... you know...

Updated the OP with current status.

Sorry for the delay, but our engineers have been extremely busy and have worked through the night to attempt to resolve the current issues.

When we have more information that we can release, we'll be sure to update everyone as soon as we can.

Here's an idea. Keep the servers down a few more hours. Roll out the newest update one day prematurely. Use Torrent to deliver the update.

I really just need to log in for 2 minutes to update my skill queue. 4 hours to go before my skill finishes.

This is probably the most incompetent game company in existence. Just saying.

I mean it's almost comical.

Just think of all of it together DUST, things like this, sometimes I think I'm dreaming.

It's days like today that remind me how much love I have for this game. People live and breathe EVE. If you're going to succeed in this universe then EVE literally becomes a part of you. Oh sure I get frustrated with changes and complain from time to time like everyone else, but when this thing that has become such a part of our abstract reality is physically threatened - I was genuinely worried for the ole' gurl. I followed every tweet and server twitch with all the angst of an expectant father. Thanks to all the CCP employees who worked to ensure that our gaming experience will continue safely and securely. It could have been worse.

No one should be asking for free sp. You don't reward terrorism with cookies. But I wouldn't be upset to learn that the Odyssey release is being delayed for however many hours the servers were down. Many folks (myself included) were on timetables to complete goals just prior to the launch. I also think locking every post discussing this historical event in GD is bad PR. This was a universal experience. There will be hundreds of those topics. Probably should relax the rules for a day and let people post-disaster vent/complain/beg/compliment as needed.

Glad to be back.

Good work CCP.


Finally someone who's using that bit of braincells in his head.Well spoken yonis.

I do agree thought that it would be best not to deploy odyssey tomorrow but delay it a week.Just so that people who have not been able to log in have some more time to do so.Otherwise the ''WHEEEELP i lost a few SP , damn you CCP'' cries will only become bigger.

While i think we do deserve a compensation for the lost day ( I agree it was not CCP's fault, but neither was ours, and we are the ones paying for this game ). I would much rather go with a +1 day in subscriptions than free SPs. I absolutely agree with postponing the patch because I bought a char and I was supposed to inject and train the last 2 cruisers to level 3 before the patch - now I wont be able to, and I will lose the corresponding BC5 skills.
