Xegony down ... again
2x in less than 12 hours :/
It doesn't say "down" but it says "locked". I may be wrong, but isn't the difference in that suggest that they took it down on purpose? If it had just crashed...it would merely say "down" on the server select screen, in red lettering.
It did say down first, just like this morning. The server definitely crashed.
Locked just means that DBG has noticed the problem and managed to change the status...it's actually a good thing to see. It means that someone is working on the issue. Or feeding the hamsters...
Xegony crashed both last night and this morning, but we were able to bring it back up quickly both times. Unfortunate, but nothing too out of the ordinary. I was wrong here, we found a fix for this weirdness.
Xegony down again !
We've found a potential fix for the issue, and will be pushing it with next week's game update. If the situation escalates we may look into hotfixing.
Oh a hot fix sounds good
so what is your definition of escalate?
Interesting that a server that crashed 3 times in a day doesn't merit a hotfix but this does...?
Hotfix Notes: May 18, 2018
*** NPCs ***
- Fixed a problem in Bastion of Thunder where a Chaotic Vortex would not teleport you to the next phase of the raid.
- Fixed a problem in the Plane of War where the Effigy of Suffering would not teleport you within the zone.
Don't be obtuse, a hot fix to address NPCs that port has far less potential issue and unintended consequences. I'm sure they want to be sure not to impact the other servers to fix localized issues until it can be tested on a patch day.
Status: 6/13/2018 11:54 PDT - We are currently investigating a potential issue with server: Xegony.So, whats the guess's on time frame, I think 3 hrs 23 mins.
I'm gonna go with 5 hours...and then about 30 minutes afterwards there will be another emergency patch that lasts 3 hours
Don't worry, it's only a potential server crash
Since it seems to be affecting more than just Xegony now...perhaps a hotfix is warranted.
Xegony was in fact hotfixed at some point yesterday.
The issues with AB have to do with a hardware failure in one of our data centers. Ops is working to resolve this now. It is an entirely separate issue.
To add more info, we pushed out a fix yesterday and restarted the server at 1pm and it has not crashed yet. Due to the nature of the problem, it will not have a patch note as we do not want other servers to be affected by people trying to cause this to happen on servers that have not come down yet.
Thanks for the explanation and the work ya'll do to keep the game up and running
