Hey guys,

As you’re all aware, Tranquility is still offline after today’s scheduled daily downtime.

This is due to an issue with a code deployment today while patching for a few fixes in EVE Online. The issue caused the cluster to fail to start up correctly, and as such, Tranquility is currently unavailable for play for both EVE and DUST.

Our operations and development team are working on this issue as we speak, and we’re hoping to have Tranquility back online for you guys as soon as possible.

Right now, we don’t have an ETA for when the cluster will be back online and accepting connections, but we’ll keep you updated in this thread.

Cheers,

- F

Seems to me it would be best to do a rollback on the attempted update and troubleshoot this issue offline in a parallel test environment.

Not that I'm familiar with this sort of thing though...just sayin'

A little girl cuts her hand on the playground and runs crying to the teacher. She asks the teacher for a glass of cider.

"Why do you want a glass of cider?" the teacher asks.

"To take away the pain," sobs the little girl.

"What do you mean?" the teacher asks.

"Well," sobs the little girl. "I overheard my big sister say that whenever she has a prick in her hand, she can't wait to get it in cider."

That is the real world in it's squillion-k detail. Do not panic. Turn your gaze back to the computer screen and realise you can return to your internet spaceships as soon as a new CCP hamster wheel is installed.

Here is the best Idea ever.

Roll the server back to the original state it was in before you tried to implement your patch today.

Fix the new patch on your Dev server and when its 100% then and only then launch it to the public.

Thus we get to play, and you get to work and everyone is 100% Happy Happy Happy!

Dear ccp,

if a fault suddenly appears it's not the problem of the software but a corruption of data. So a fix in the software is not a fix but a work around. Unless there was a software update on downtime which would mean a simple rollback to the previous version.

My bet is on data corruption which you should have queries for to find out.

This coming from a pogrammer

I am actually agree with this statement. It has been six hours of them working on it. I understand sometimes things get ******, I get it. I understand they are trying to bring more to the game, I understand that as well... The issue is that it has been six hours without so much as a "Hey, yeah... We ****** up... Here is something to quell your rioting in the forums."

Not like it is all that hard to give us all something to cover at least 2 hours of the down time...

all these posts about how this sucks.

It brings me back to the earlier days of eve when patch DAY meant a day or two vacation from eve. and down TIME meant a couple hours at the minimum.

Oh and the glorious days before the skill que, when you had to be smart enough to set a long skill before down time so you didn't loose any training time.
