If you had been in the help channel you would know what happened:

2 redheads and a blonde walked into the server room.

Redhead1: /emote pokes server with a stick
CCP Lebowski: (to Redhead1) patience little one :)
Blonde: This is how unscheduled downtime happens, impatient person goes poke server with large stick - pulls out cords while flailing stick.
Redhead1: Buckle down folks, we're in the dangaaaa zone!
Redhead2: server hamsters taste delicious though :(
EVE System: Channel MOTD changed to: ...TRANQUILITY IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING DB ISSUES, WE ARE INVESTIGATING - CCP Lebowski - 11.47am" by CCP Lebowski.
Redhead2: ahahahahaha
Blonde: Told ya to not swing that stick around in server room!
Redhead1: I dident mean to hit that A Big Red Button

True story - actual copy paste from the log (a couple statements out of context).

118.10 is the old one. They wanted to deploy 199.1 but failed

I admire the consistency of the bugs with each patch , may be it is time you guys return the original developers , just saying . It is programming 101 - rollback procedures , testing before deploying etc.

6 Days 21 hours....

Jumpgate classic mightygames.....

It began as a normal downtime and ended in a complete 6 week rollback and all earned in that time was gone :-)

You see we are not even NEAR this here and it can always be worse regarding patches :D

For all the legacy code jokes and other technical details we like to poke fun at CCP for, its amazing to play a game where the DEVs communicate with you whats going on in real time. Never have i turned on my EVE launcher, saw the server was down and not found a twitter or Forum post with exact info on it. Other games could learn from this. Take your time CCP, we can wait.

Hi!

Just started playing today, great, absolutely great! Big smile
I thought the delays were on my end, good to hear it was a aftershock of the last patch.

Played for about 30/60 minutes before the server went down, but I'm def. coming back for more when the servers are online again!

Take your time!


Hi there,

As someone who has played eve for years now, welcome.

CCP have done a wonderful job over the years, patches for the most part go much smoother now. I can remember when eve was down for hours and hours at a time. So rest assured. This is not common and it is not usually this bad.

Welcome to eve, and may Bob have mercy on your soul


Some of remember multiple day DT's bud :-P


Remember boot ini?

Good. Now I can...

catch up on all the lost sleep
go to the head
eat
go outside
restart my computer
emerge from my room to say "Hi" or something to everyone else in the house
everything else but Eve

...because TQ was up.

"Tomahawks?"

"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

Haha, I'm sure they don't have a testing team resembling the playercount! Many weird stuff happens when you connect many many people to a server. Programming 101 doesn't apply on this scale Pirate

while we wait, check this for on-topic easy listen.

And since it was asked downtime for story on longest lasting downtime.
