Wow.

To a large extent, I've never seen such a bunch of entitled whiners. This is a game, folks.

I've been where CCP are now, in Real Life (anyone ranting here knows what that is?). I can assure you that no one involved with the servers or the relevant programming now is sitting back and opening up the beers. They're going through a nightmare right now.

CCP Falcon is telling us what can be told. In situations like this its a delicate balance between letting the guys who can fix the issue fix the issue, and bugging them to tell you what's going on when it probably isn't clear to anyone yet.

A good percentage of you folks are reacting like 13 year old boys whose only knowledge of responsibility is taking a shower once in a while and making sure your corp's POSs are fueled up.

Let's be nice humans with some compassion & a reasonable sense of priorities. CCP want the servers back up, believe it or not, more than we do, and they have a better reason for it.

Keep hacking, CCP. Ignore the haters. They have no idea what's going on.

Oh, and Falcon, loved the addition of the Maurice fire-in-server-room graphic. Made my day!

Good luck, guys!


Very few of the posts today have been whiners. I've read them all and you sir, are over-reacting!


Very true. Most of us are actually enojying this extended DT :)

and you need to drink.... it's the rules :P



Confirmed, I'd say less than 2% of the posts are whiners, unless you count the random 1-liners asking for SP or Geckos.

Nah we're just having a good time, but that being said, I still think what he said is a pretty valid comment. It's definitely true, minus the whiners bit!

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

Isn't there a backup from before fozziesov that you guys can use while troubleshooting the problem?


Won't help if the bug was AFTER FozzieSov but BEFORE todays' patch.

Could be something completely unrelated like a poorly patched cluster node.

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

I know what there doing

1 each time a person demands compensation ccp keeps the servers down 1 extra hour

2 every time you think you should get a modual ccp takes a shot of vodka

3 every time you think you should get free sp ccp drinks a tanker of beer

4 every time a person just in general whines that the game is not on ccp snorts 2 lines

lesson learned

STOP WHINING Twisted



Yes could you stop whining at people whining please :)

Oh for sure, it would be ace! new names, I might even get Han Solo, or Chewy

C'mon, we all checked those two right?


I would definitely play. Anyone under 3 years would suddenly be at a major advantage compared to the older characters that would lose a whole lot more.



do you guys really think this game is about sp? think again :))
