Welcome to Everquest!
Consider yourself lucky. On the Stability AB-thread, try looking for the first DEV response (hint, three weeks, page 14).
Congratulations on the swift response, I will keep my fingers crossed for an equally swift resolution of your server's problems.
Try 2 months (AB).
The symptoms are really obvious there. There as some things which are handled internally within the cluster that comprises "the server" - fighting, pulling, casting, etc - while there are other things that communicate back to the central San Diego server - rezzing, inviting to group/raid, zoning, tells, channels, logins, and possibly some heartbeat to keep people logged in.
The AB server link back to HQ fails, repeatedly. Lag arrives, tells fail, and if it gets bad enough everyone gets booted and the login server says DOWN. Once it's back, everyone logs in and even the same instance is up (although it may have suffered a rollback, presumably due to missed heartbeats), /uptime shows server wasn't down at all.
The bit of network / hardware handling this is obvious to diagnose, but so far the only thing they've done is switch off the marketplace because apparently it's causing too much network traffic and is triggering the failure to happen more frequently. Other than that, no communication, no apology, nothing at all other than ("looking into it") after about 1 month of players complaining.
Frankly I don't care that much any more though. I've started the witcher 3 DLC and will move on to Pillars of Eternity next. EQ sub ran out yesterday. Sorry DBG, you failed.
What is going on? I can't stay logged in?
I'm tired of seeing "YOU HAVE BEEN DISCONNECTED"
Any idea when this will be fixed?
Logged on to see if things had improved. Lasted 15 minutes until crash LOL. Meanwhile I looked at Holly Longdale's twitter page. " Luclin server will get updates/upgrades next Wednesday to help the ongoing issues. Downtime posted next week." Pretty disappointing. It's the weekend with EXP bonus and Luclin is unplayable. At least tell us what the problems are.
wow consider yourself's very lucky and i get at least a bit jealous all it took for luclin to get recognized and a "promised" fix was 2 days or so ......
AB is "working" with these troubles now for 8 weeks, with nada communication what is causing it, or why it isn't fixed (and sorry : we are looking at is no communication), lets hope it doesn't take them another 8 weeks to think about how to fix AB, yet allone doing it .....
I was disconnected from Luclin three times yesterday and I believe it went down more than that. But when in game I typed /uptime, it indicated the server had been up for over 14 hours.
I wish there were some indication that the Devs even look at these threads.
Disconnected, but most annoying is potion loss, or when you use Origin ow Brick of Knowledge and the destination zone refuses entry. Had that TOO many times in the last few days. Please fix this, we are paying customers.
I haven't had any problems up until 2 weeks ago, when I got disconnected once a week. It really started 3 days ago with 5 disconnects and yesterday 8 disconnects.
No kidding Malbro, you just posted that all over the forums, amazing you figured that out.
As soon as it is fixed, it will be fixed.
Wow Malbro again the same post in the 10th thread announcing Server down? lol
Daybreak scowls at you - Getting ready for server Crash - Looks like you could get pissed.
booom goes the dynamite
there gonna take there time fixing this I guess, 8 weeks and AB aint even been fixed our future is looking bright.
