Early Downtime, Thursday 20 December

2007-12-20 - By Svarthol

Today, at 10:36 GMT we unfortunately had an unscheduled downtime of the Eve Cluster connection. In preparation for certain downtimes, we sometimes need to ensure certain things are correct and in order, this preparation involves some network and systems changes for security reasons. The error today was a human operational error that involved accidently stopping the Tranquility communication with the world. We would like to emphasize that this is not any issue with the game, network, cluster or other matter and it was an unfortunate mistake on the part of the operator. We apologize for the early downtime today and we would like to further assure everyone that steps have been taken to ensure that this type of error happening again has been greatly reduced.
