Why are servers not involved in the mergers down? Can't you bring the non-effected servers up?
It was mentioned in a different thread I believe: something about all servers sharing "something or other", I'm not savvy in the technical jargon they used.
They are running on 20 year old hardware which means ONE shared database server.
No they're not. The hardware has been upgraded multiple times. It's also been upgraded RECENTLY from flat files to a database system... and it's multiple databases. Quit spewing misinformation.
So anytime they need to do anything with Non-TLP Servers, they need to bring TLP's down?
heh, live has to put up with stuff that TLP causes so no sympathy here
You mean Mangler?
Its in there somewhere...2nd page iirc.
The 24 hour downtime is for all servers, it will include the live patch down time and is necessarybecause server merges effect the overall databases as well as the specific servers being merged.
wasnt there a 24 hour downtime back in feb for exactly this reason they upgraded to new servers or hardware .. iirc ..
they really need to give us an XP bonus and rare spawn for all this downtime .. comon DPG .. could use a week long bonus for all the heroics i created during anniv ..
also just for a "what the heck" moment how bout turning anniv on again for a few more weeks ? I had a few toons that could not get some of those tasks done ..
the only good news is I have not had to pay for my subs for about 6 months , thank goodness of being able to buy in-game krono's from my plat farming and traders
yeah may be you could extend LDON for Mangler...
They did bring non-affected servers back up. Test is up. Those of us who play on Test are happily killing stuff even as I type this.
... Half of the servers are TLP servers.
Anything special you need to do to play on test, such as create a duplicate file folder?
i find it interesting that the development staff is acting like no one could have known... yet anyone who is a veteran player of the game knew that this would not happen in the time allotted.
well you actually need to log into regular servers and do a /testcopy so until servers come back up having test avail is a no go for most of us ..
I thought /testcopy was only to bring over a copy of your current/preferred main. Are we not able to start a new toon from level 1 on Test?
You can. You can even /testbuff to level 25 I believe. Been a few years since I played on Test.
There are plenty of things the test server can't do and how would you even test things on it anyway... like oh I don't know, a server merger? Is there another server to shut down and merge with Test just see what happens? Nope, that would require shutting down the live ones, which is where we are right now
did not know that .. ty I do not play on test ..
