During the extended downtime on Tuesday 16th October we will be opening the test server, Singularity, for a good old-fashioned Armageddon day!

• CONCORD will be locked inside the nearest space donut store, and all solar systems will be set to 0.0 security status.
• All pilots will have super characters (yes, that’s right, the 480 million skillpoint ones).
• The market will be fully seeded with ships, modules and ammo.
• “Free for all” rules will apply across the galaxy. Or no rules at all. Whichever you prefer.
• There will be explosions. Lots of explosions.
• Podkilling allowed

Singularity will be opened around GMT1000 and will stay open until the Tranquility cluster comes back online. You won’t need to patch up to a test version, as all of this will be run using the current TQ client.

Why the big event? We are looking into some issues that have been occurring with our proxy servers, so we would very much appreciate as many players to participate as possible.

FORUM RULE VIOLATIONS IN THIS THREAD WILL RESULT IN A 24 HOURS TEMPORARY BAN FROM THE FORUMS! - Wrangler


Update @ 14:15 from CCP Mindstar
Armageddon Day will continue after the regular Sisi downtime, which has been used to tweak the servers a little and allow for better performance.

Remember that singularity is just a test server, and has nowhere near the same power behind it as the main server, Tranquility.


Update @ 17:30 from CCP Mindstar
Had a few issues with nodes getting overloaded - Armageddon day will return shortly when Sisi is rebooted.


Update @ 19:00 from CCP Mindstar
We are still working to get SiSi back online for this. The test has been producing some great results thus far, and we want to continue hammering away at the test server. Currently we are getting a new DB build done, and it should be back in an hour. See you then!

Update @ 21:15 from CCP Mindstar
New DB mirror is working much much better, but needed another reboot to get rid of CONCORD and the super character thingy to work. Cross your fingers and prime your guns. We should be rocking and rolling now.

Update @ 00:05 from CCP Mindstar
Server seems to be running smoothly now @ 700 players. We are still increasing the number of users. The server will be left online for the rest of the night, but will go down sometime in the morning Icelandic time.

Update @ 01:20 from CCP Mindstar
Sisi at 1800+ and still holding. Fantastic result in the end, but I am heading off home. Sisi will stay up for as long as it can, and some time in the morning will go down and be reverted to normal.

When I was demoing at PAX, they set up super characters for us to use. It's a LOT of fun to just grab any old ship you want and go get asploded/asplode people.

I think I annoyed Kaemonn when I fitted out a Hulk with smartbombs, though. It was the last half hour of the con and I was very tired/punchy. Laughing

This sounds like a lot of fun.
