I hear electronic machines respond well to screaming and vexated slaps with the palm of the hand.

fire database admins: who would restore the database when it crashes next time?

When this happened earlier in the week I remember someone stating the database problems were forming a pattern. Every 5 - 6 days.

Well here we are 5 days later with database issues.

I guess we'll be seeing each other again on Thursday or thereabouts.

You know what might actually be a good idea?
Take TQ offline for a week. And have every developer actually spend time fixing what appears to be serious underlying issues with its stability and then allowing everyone back on

This is just crazy, why do we pay incompentent engineers to make this shat.

Really, the problem with software today is that it's "acceptable" and "accepted" and "expected" to be unstable and buggy and crash. I know because that is what is expected of us (Im a software engineer too at a very BIG cash cow "platform" house no names but enuf hints). Unfortunately this is a fact of corporate life, instability is expected and accepted. Yet on the other hand we expect to be treated like "structural engineers" that "build bridges" and so on and all that bullshat when infact we are nothing like them and wont ever be in the next decade (or the past decade too). Real engineers retired long ago in the 60s, 70s, 80s. It died in the 90s and definately the 00's.

The core problem isnt the fact that it does just that, the core problem is a social problem, acceptance that we ship low quality shat.

We can role play and pretend to be "engineers" when in fact we are nothing close to it. Myself included. We are just hacks.

Flame me all you want, You know deep down I am right.



oh stop your *****ing, it happens, jeeze. Go grab a cold Mt Dew or something. Go have a smoke. Go touch yourself, Whining about "incompetent" devs isnt gonna get the server up faster.



This is exactly the problem with software "engineering" today. Read my updaed post. I hold my employee's "Engineers" ACCOUNTABLE. I get much higher quality deliverables now. No egos, just quality work, if they **** up, they end up accountable. "It happens" yes, I had one engineer say that to me. He learnt his lesson. The quality of his work is now impeckable. He actualy spends more time thinking about the consequences of his work. I work in HFT (High Frequency Trading) his "ego" can cost the company MILLIONS in a day.


You must live in some fantasy land where deadlines don't push quality to the side.

This is your third and final warning.

Switch from Mickeysoft SQL Server to a real database, like Sybase.

You have 1 hour to comply or I will shoot the dog.

No problem. We will just go play your competitors MMO while you fix your database issues. These database issues are becoming normal. We are playing League of Legends, and World of Tanks more because of it. Keep up the good work at becoming our 2nd favorite game to play.


Who would do such thing? Wink

Actually I tried to fire up Starcraft 2 and finish the campaign that I left neglected over the last week. Guess what?

I must say that I love the game, however, it seems to be down a lot. I don't think I'll stay on as a member. Saturday is the day I like to relax before work. Sorry CCP you'll be losing me as a customer.

While you're fixing the DB issues, could you mark on the next expansion's calendar a proper QUEUE?!?!?!?!?

I mean really! The crashes are a big enough issue only to be compounded with a queue that has no function and follows no logic. "You're #416 in queue" Followed by a second client that starts just mere seconds to be #25 in queue. Then finally being told status: ok to be told you're #125 in queue......seriously, for the love of God!


um, the queue is based on what proxy server you connect to. thus, one proxy might have a 50 player queue, whilst another has no queue.



it works perfectly, just you are being load-balanced and every server you connect to has a different queue, thus you get diferent numbers =p


honestly, just restart and you usually get no wait


Great, glad you cleared that up.......so explain to me the point of a queue if finally you're OK to connect but when you do you're placed back in the queue 100 spots behind where you started?

And um, how about a queue that actually connects you when you're number is up? Not just jerks you around?

Could not connect to the specified address. Odds are that you have not established an internet connection, the server isn't running, or the server address or port number was wrong.

Fight fire with fire. One of the many talented people out there need to make a rap video mocking CCP to their htfu song. Disgraceful service. It should start with video of a dog taking a ****. That's about par for this latest failcrash.

CCP Staff only replying to immature comments like "It made me sad" etc... That is the worst customer service ever!

Give us an explanation, don't say Hamsters, don't say "we are sad" like 10 year old girls.

Your a company, give a bloody good reason and stop treating your customer database like morons.

I've always admired CCP, I have been a member since 2007. throughout my membership CCP servers die constantly and nobody explains anything and the staff keep saying stupid silly immature comments.

People have taken the day off work, or swapped shifts just because they planned to play Eve. Now we are sitting doing nothing, thanks, I could have been working and making money in real life.

Its great to come back to the game after a year and find the same old problems..

...so remind me again, why should I pay for this, then I can't play at the times I want too?

Tranquility experienced a database issue. Our engineers are on fixing it and will have Tranquility up and running as soon as possible. We will let you know more as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.

Update: looks like everything is up and we are monitoring for any more issues. Oh my looks like I may of jumped the gun on this. I'm sorry if I gave any false hope. Still having issues and we are working on it.

Update: Estimating server up by 18:00 UTC.

Update: Tranquility is NOW up and running. I even double checked it Cool


Now he tells me..


I'm sorry I was excited myself thinking it was back up =( then I got sad.


Was you playing at the time to?

Always wondered if employing people addicted to the game meant people eager to fix it so they can get back to popping stuff.

The EVE cluster has reached its maximum user limit. Please try logging in again later. You are #523 in line for logon. Are you sure you're not in the line for an iPhone 4?
