Patch deployed - felt like Back to the Future

2006-03-02 - By Svarthol

This patch day didn't go as planned. After a successful deployment of one of the most extensive changes done for a long time to Tranquility - the hardware upgrades - experiencing this was like are returning back in time. The sheer number of small problems that went wrong in this patch deployment really felt like Mr. Murphy was getting back at us.

Ranging from the database maintenance tasks taking far longer than expected to a typo affecting older autopatches, mixed with code corrupting database entries resulting in new characters being skilless resulted in far longer delays than expected at first.

We sincerely apoligize for the inconvenience this extended downtime has caused.
