I just laugh all of u whining. Most ppl here just cant understand: THIS WAS NOT A REAL EVENT. This was a Sress Test, on a Test realm. And those of you saying you pay for it: NO! You dont pay for IT! U pay for TQ, not the test server. Its just an extra opportunity, so this epic whining is ridiculous. Some of u say, that CCP do not care about their customers...Geez, its obvius u never played anything else. But go on, whine more, this topic need another 150 pages. En Taro Adun!


Lok'ragosh! Al'garah shan'dohk! Does this give CCP the right to screw people over? In hell it does. -.-


Explain how they are screwing you?

The event was a PROXY SERVER TEST.
The extra skills were BAIT.
You all took the bait.
The test was an utter success.

What's there to say ?


Look at it this way, it was a test, lets ENSURE participants despite having our own bug hunting team by offering a possible ONCE IN A LIFTIME offer of maxed SP.

Now for the hardcore fanboys who are probably going to continue to flame and defend like this put it this way

If you were in a restaurant due to being invited for possibley a once in a liftime event (celebrity dinner w/e).

Now imagine you belived you were lucky because you had a long standing customer relationship with the owners.

Only to be told at the door sorry we're having issues due to overwhelming demand we had no prepared for.

1) Would you wait 6 hours for your meal
2) If you would, would you ever go back after being told after that time sorry we're not going to actually serve you at all, we got what we wanted, go home.

As an event and showcase, and stress test fantastic idea, the resources requirement was wholey underestimated, and as such the event failed terribly.

Only a hand full of my original friends still play eve, honestly I can see why, never have I see an MMO so afflicted by failing servers and extended downtime.

To the hard working staff I can only sympathize, and I hope your efforts are not in vain, but for me at least any faith in CCP as a company has well and truly been destroyed, not just through this but the long string issues afflicting this mmo over the last 12 months.

You all knew SiSi is not TQ.
SiSi can, at best, handle around 1k people before it implodes, if even THAT much.
You all knew everyody and their dog will WANT to log into SiSi.
You did the same, didn't you ?
The OP announcing the event clearly states the purpose of the event was to test the SOL/proxy servers.

Nowhere there does it say "we guarantee everybody will be having fun".
It says "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".
Have you participated ? GOOD.
One good deed for you today.
Helping out with the test was pure volunteer work.

HAVING A GOOD NUMBER OF PEOPLE FROM TQ COMING OVER ON SISI FOR TESTS AND ALL WORKING FINE IS IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHEIVE
If you feel "used" or "cheated", you have clearly misunderstood the announcement wording.
And CCP can not be blamed for THAT... but still, everybody does it.


It doesnt say anything about "volunteering". If you actually read it right, it already sounds too good to be true. We fell for it hook, line and sinker? Fine with me personally, but cmon, I'm in for 30 minutes then BAM I'm kicked off and I hear other people on my TS still playing.

Aggravating? You ****ing bet it is.

Oh, lets not forget about the many others who fell for it, and did not actually log in properly. How would they feel?

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.


just so that ppl looking at the last page can actually read it for themselves

oh, and btw, still 0 players on SiSi, a good 5-10 mins after reboot

If theres one good thing about Armegeddon day is that it has brought the eve community together in its anger at CCP. I'm looking forward to the next attempt and reading the next "I'm p***** off at CCP" thread.
