This is about the time you find out someone broke the tab on the ethernet cable in one of the servers and just taped it in rather than running a new cable. The tape has finally worn out.

I am extremely disappointed. I have played eve for sometime now. I believe the new sov changes are going to kill eve or at least null sec side of eve. I do not believe this game is going to be able to survive the new sov warfare. You can tell it was designed by someone who does not play this game or at least hold space in null sec.

Did the goons capture the whole universe overnight? Is this what really happened? C'mon Fozzie, fess up, was it really worth hosing down the server cluster? I'm sure it could have been fixed in another way, somehow. Maybe...

no, they were too busy having to fight off Moa from trolling the i-hubs

Its funny all folks who think they're IT professionals come on and try giving advice. If you were truly the best dont you think they would have tried to hire you instead of the other guy.


This IT semi-professional realizes that he's not in a position to offer any worthy advice, especially since he's not aware of what is occurring, and realizes that the professionals that are employed by CCP are dealing with the issue.

Lookie, I found where to edit my Signature!

Of course :)

The drinking game. You pretty much drink whenever someone makes a post at this point. Except for people who are also playing the drinking game.

There are rules.. you drink anytime makes a post that is whiney, or the launcher gives us false hope, or you're thirsty, or you refresh the page, or you like a post, or you think a post is funny (but you don't wanna shame yourself by actually "liking" it) or it dark outside, or the sun is up...

So maybe rushing a release that includinded a major game change to a ton of game mechanics wasn't a good idea? Maybe we should take our time and release stuff when its ready, as opposed to releasing it on the release schedule thats setup months in advance that does not possibly have the ability to factor in every thing that could go wrong and slow your release down.

On second thought:

Give them a break people they are obviously trying and they are certainly more interested in fixing this than us.
After all its their real life that gets affected.

Hey forums local,

And now I just hope that I dont receive a temp forum ban from Falcon for derailing this thread ;)

Quick serious question (Yes I am capable of them)

If you could choose would you prefer the servers to be up now or offline the rest of the day but you got a free PLEX?
