Why no warning when about to pull the plug? Well except for the laaaaaag, traffic advisory, then a kick.

because it crashedRolling Eyes


Perhaps but op can be read as they pulled the plug because there was a "problem". No mention of a crash.


"unexpected problem" = "OMG, she's gonna blow, EMERGENCY STOP!!!!"

you know the systems gonna crash again right after dt as everyone petitions for the return of their lost drones etc etc etc


Actually.. the moment stuff started to misbehave, the first you do, is order your drones back in.
Could have seen it coming.

unexpected problem with market transactions
= Translation: there is a exploit on live that is being used and we are shutting down to do damage control and to avoid having to take one of the far more annoying options after plugging the hole, which are:
1) have GM's undo the damage and reverse the transactions
2) do a rollback to the daily backup (you would qq if we did).

If it was not a exploit they would give the usual 1 hour fair warning and wait until regular downtime.

Normally I'd agree but there was a HUGE login queue a few minutes before it went down so I'm going with the "uhoh" thing rather than the "damage control" one.

(third attempt trying to get this to post...)

So since I was in a battle when the unexpected shutdown happened, is my character dead when I log back in?
(All I got was gate traffic notifications, nothing about early server shutdown...)

It's totally clear it crashed. For here it was round about 10 minutes earlier, so crash @ 09:50.

Now we got the DT from 10:00 to 11:00. This sounds like a nice offer to expedite it from 11:00 to 12:00 but it smells fishy. Because of the crash I would love to hear a more clear statement right now wether or not that one little hour is enough time to fix things.

Even with the 60 minutes of the "sheduled" DT timeframe, this is a 70 minute unavailability at least. But I'm pretty shure this will take longer because the communication is - to say at least - only talking about what everybody playing realized: the server is down.

So there my assumption is 190 minutes down today. But I'm only playing eve for about 2 years or so, it might be interesting what other players are assuming how long the servers will be offline today. Let's keep the wording: How long the extended Downtime today will be.

Another piece of Info: Market transaction could not be refreshed for a longer time today. Afaik it was since about 08:00. Pretty looks like Devs could add some more info here to clarify things.

I'm just glad CCP thinks they can fix it so quickly. You'd think with the decreased frequency of crashes over the years they'd be getting rusty at fixing the system. ;)
