I'm not going to get on the CCP is Test argument, although it sounds very suspicious at this point.
I just don't care about that.

However, it seems quite reasonable to ask the question, when will CCP begin firing or reassigning their employees who are not capable of doing their jobs?
This is a huge customer service issue.
You expect players to:

1. pay for the service
2. risk their earned in-game assets in order to generate content in the game according to the structure that CCP alone has devised.
3. attract new players/subscribers

And yet, you seem incapable of properly vetting employees to insure that they posses the skills to support a simple service.
This was not an act of God, or serendipity. It was an act committed by a CCP employee, accidental or not, which caused tangible losses to it's customers. There is NO other industry where compensation would not be immediately granted to the customer.

Just saying.

Maybe some time on a mop will sharpen your sysadmin's skills.

I, for one, oppose all forms of meta gaming from the Goon spies that did this to mess up all our fun.

No fun allowed, indeed.

It's okay, you need to focus your anger into something productive. Just hug yourself and think of something you can be angry at. Concentrate, and you will find your inner self, your true self. It is okay. You don't have to hate yourself, we here at TEST are here for you, for we love you.

Yeah I don't really care about any CCP bias/metagaming accusations and related silliness, I think in this case it's enough to know that CCP massively messed this one up and leave it at that.


Careful. Mittens will probably commissar anyone who doesn't tow the line on this one.

The only thing that makes me more happy today than sipping on nullbear tears is knowing that summer is nowhere near over, ensuring more fights, more shineys exploding, and more tears to go around.

In the game of conquest, who cares about the pawns if the king yet reigns?

We are painfully aware of this and believe me: it hurts to see such epic battles, which are not found anywhere else in the whole gaming industry, being cut off like this.

We want to give you the servers, tools and environment to create and enjoy such epic moments to its fullest extend, that is what our dream and passion is about - destroying such battles just to influence the course of the in-game actions, however, is not what we do.


This is a poor non-response to the issue. We get it, you screwed up, but you should not have been screwing with an active fight. Mistakes only happen if you put yourself in the position to make them.


What are you doing to fix this issue. This fight had massive consequences, and you cannot hand-wave and go "oops".

But only if it's good cheese - maybe a nice block of swiss or pepperjack, or a tub of brie or port wine... none of that Kraft American Singles or Cheez Whiz crap.

Ahh yeah, I second pepperjack. That stuff is amazing.

Everyone needs to chill CCP had their hands full and I don't know any other game out yet that can have this level of fights. We know everyone is raring to go.... Well not TEST exactly:

It saddens me to see such mindless trolling taking place.

Like CCP care about which alliance wins what fight. Seriously guys, have a word with yourselves.

People overlooking the astounding technical feat of having over 2,000 active connections to the node and the fact they were taking measures to *increase* that number for the greater enjoyment of everyone involved.

Yeah, someone made a mistake. That guy probably doesn't even need to be punished because he is probably going to kick himself for weeks (and be the butt of office jokes for months!). When you take pride in your work mistakes don't need to be punished because you punish yourself.

Perhaps something good will come of this. Maybe an automated system to do what that engineer was attempting to do. Look to the future and think of the positive things this could create.

UC.


Yea im sure CCP Dolan is kicking himself real hard right now with a giant bat of SMUG.

problem is as your tech gets better they will blob more and more in system. its a war that can never be won.

i remember after dominion you could not do more then 1200 in system with out the server crashing...

now you can do 2100 plus

if you made it stable under 4000 they would try to cram in 5000 and complain about it.


There is a huge difference between node crash (nobody would make a big stink about it) and some admin actually ruining an awesome fight in which people invested 5-6 hours plus it saves tons of ships for one side in the biggest war in the game.

Two very different things. All players whine about crashes but we understand it happens. This is different. This just pisses off anyone for interfering with the most important war in 0.0



why do you think if ccp was not messing around there would not have been a crash like an hour into it?

So WHY does the server not save the state prior to being reset (retaining any combat flags related to the ships) and instead give all parties the option of getting a free safe log-off?

The amount of irritation in this thread isn't the fact that the servers were reset (which is in itself an aggravation) but the fact that current mechanics wipes ALL combat from the server at the time a reset button is pressed. there was a supposed change to the combat flags to better reinforce the motto of "don't fly what you can't afford to lose" by making ships no longer disappear after 15 minutes if someone is still shooting them. Now, it is more of "Don't fly what you can't afford to lose, except for when CCP screws up and restarts the server, then you get your stuff out scot-free."
