if you shut down some of the events that may help, most of us lag with one going, so all is bad idea.

You may want to stick a little notice on the launcher for anyone who might be trying to log on for the first time today or whatever. Just so they know what's going on. :)

I am not sure this is related to the events. I was running in E-star with some guildies a couple of days ago and had the same kind of lag, with no events running. Locked up tight as a drum for 3 minutes at a time twice, causing party wipes.

Cordovan, it's the Kobolds. You made them upset because you didn't morph into a giant Kobold while visiting the servers.

Wayfinder server still up, haven't tested others but that means there was no accidental release because otherwise it would affect all servers.

Cannith- unofficially down, stuck at attempt 1.
Argonessen- unofficially down, same.
Thelanis- officially down.
Orien- unofficially down, stuck at attempt 1.
Sarlona- same.
G-land- same.
Wayfinder- UP.

I agree. I've noticed considerably less lag over the last few days compared to when only one event is running. In fact, several events mean the players are spread out over different areas, instead of half the server standing by at Euphonia for example and all rushing into Crystal Cove at the same time, so having more of them at the same time should actually alleviate the lag compared to normal events.

........... I hadn't played in 4 months (was playing SWTOR), I logged on to the website and was thinking about making a quick Assassin. I know I have the gear banked so I figured I would buy an Ottos Box and a +7 Tome. Then Im like, should I sub because my characters are overflowing. This would involve updating my credit card and combating my thrifty nature but I finally settled on an amount I was willing to spend.

Fine, click the game launcher, log in, wait............wait......wait! Close out window, try 4 more times....then checks forums. Sees this post, now Im like "I was gonna pay for this?" I gotta tell you guys, the low population is one thing, not even being able to get on is another. I'll try a few more times but if I cant log on, I cant play.

every year I am helping at least one person getting the motes together for the polar bear companion. I always have some friend or guildie asking to help with components for icy burst kits. Also I have to admit I *like* the ice skating track. wish you could get anything else out of it, sure, but I skate just for fun because I enjoy it.

I am not claiming to speak for any form of majority when I say that there definitely is people who still want soemthing out of it. And just because some more jaded players think it's useless, it does not mean it doesn't have it's place and reason for being.

You wake up and find yourself with your face planted against the water running on top of a stone surface below you. You feel like you're suffocating.

Do you:

A) Stay still.
B) Get off your lazy ass.
C) Evolve gills.
D) Skip the story ahead by an undetermined amount of time.

You get up. You realize you're in a sewer of some sort.

You have the taste of sewer water in your mouth now. Eww.

There is light coming from a round hole in the ceiling, you assume that's where you fell from.

The path splits into two: up and downstream.

Do you:

A) Go upstream, to wherever this sewage is coming from.
B) Go downstream, to wherever this sewage leads.
C) Give up

Does it just give us its clothing and let us go?

naw I never get nice things because I am always at the wrong place at the right time. :) Actually when I got stuck in a loading screen right now trying to get to the marketplace on Khyber I was thinking 'dang, I bet Cordovan is in the marketplace right now and I am missing him yet again' :)

So true! I thought I was the only one who spent all Friday jumping from place to place to try and get in on the fun. :)

This time, I was just sending something in the mail, and it said my inventory was updating and not to mess with it. I could still move until I went to the Harbor and was stuck on the loading screen. The rest of my family, though, got booted off during a quest they were doing. It showed everyone logging off and logging on (even though they weren't) and when they tried to drop out of the party they couldn't. Definitely not normal lag behavior, but I just figured they were trying to do the update for tomorrow early. :)

Did it ever occur to you that the reason we may be experiencing lag isn't the games or events but the fact that more people are logged on for the event?

Many people are F2P and DDO isn't getting any money from them for their service. Considering the fact that the U.S. government servers were overburdened by just a few people signing up for the ACA when it came out and everyone in America IS paying them, should we really be upset over this? I have full confidence this will be resolved in less than 24 hours. The ACA server issue took weeks to fix and it was no where near as complex as this game.

Surely darkness still properly counts as a vegetable even if it's more typically sold on the powdered spices shelf around here?

Whoa, Join Date Nov 2015... You won't know what Soon™ means.

Back in the days of DDO:Stormreach, there was a bit of a problem with Module 8.

It took over 18 months to roll out after Turbine's staff changed twice from the head down (except a few people).

So, we joke about it from time to time with the capitalized and trademarked Soon™ because the dev team kept telling us that the content would roll out "soon" even though over a year later "soon" was still "soon."

But remember duping is victimless

Overpowered trolls becoming overpowered because of duping and harassing others because they "can't keep up" is not victimless.

Now if the Dev team had given said player said items on the Test Server for the explicit sake of testing on the not-in-any-way-going-to-affect-live-characters-server so that said person could put the new info into the DDOWiki, that would be different.

Folks XP cap so quickly now and have to drop group because they have over 800 hours of Sovereign XP potion. Then they just casually ignore the frustrations of other folks. Then they complain about how the content isn't hard enough anymore and develop things like Champion monsters that just wreck people's day.

Etc. etc. etc.

Unfair is unfair.

Let us support you guys for a change:

- Did you restart your routers yet?
- Did you try uninstalling your anti-virus software and reboot your servers?
- Can you try and connect your servers directly into the interwebs?
- Is any one in the office downloading pr0n?
- Can you try reinstalling the servers?

Seriously though, I sympathize :) Good luck.

Carry on.

-Hold down the power button for 10 seconds?
-Have you recently installed a new headset or mouse?
-Did you move your wifi box behind a wall?
-Is Windows updating?

Don't need to work on stability. Just fix the Login issues. It's stable enough in not letting me login at all.
And since I'm sitting here staring at the screen, updates every 2 minutes would suffice.
2 min is too often when is comes to servers dude....

speaking form network infrastructure classes I took (never did pass them cause the teacher was a total ass) you want an update every 5-20 min at most at the latest you want them every hour. working on code isn't easy. hell look at this code for example:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms737593(v=vs.85).aspx

that section of code just pings a server that doesn't do much other than validate whats been sent among other things that would seem like nothing but quantum mechanic's math to a person that only understands algebra. Server code is different than say a calculator's code which is just

lable 2 = sum (text box 1 +text box 2)

which to you would look like this

1 + 1

2

or even this if its how you set up the code to display along with other things in the display

1 + 1 = 2

they have to go line by line and figure it out... hell I made a reknown calculator but I need the new numbers to update that... so ya its not easy doing what they do.

wait so you mean ddo is celebrating it with the most common problems ? loggin/lag? things not working :)

major server changes are needed that are simple fixes. more space. more partitions. split up instances. no more raid instances on quest instances. and help generalize people to regions. i know i have met people in same state as me who play on other servers then one i do. and i got good friends all over world from this game.

but really in the long run. pinging dice rolls across oceans to get major lagg kinda sucks sometimes LOL.

The downtime could be related to an item duplication exploit that enabled players to gain hundreds of hours worth of XP potions for free and other rather extremely large bonuses not otherwise intended for the player base. It is possible/plausible that investigation may be taking place into certain accounts while our connection issues are being investigated.

Officially official results are likely pending an investigative investigation to be investigatively investigated.

We'll be able to play again.... Soon™

I think it was taken down for this reason also, they just aren't being truthful because if they can't fix it they don't want everyone to know about it.

Actually, that's not a solution. Even if you fix everything wrong with the game, the very minute you add any new content, no matter how seemingly simple, it might cause everything to explode, and simply removing the new code won't always fix it.

Clearly you have never interacted with computer code before.

Edit: oh, right. Positive thinking. Uh. Uhhhh.

I LOVE YOUR OPTIMISM, THOUGH?! <.<;

Re-edit: The Side Note

Also, fixing a checklist of bugs that have been prioritized by severity is literally what coders spend enormous swaths of their time doing. It's like half of their job. Are you proposing that they shut the game down while the coders continue their normal bugsplat? Because if you are, the game is never coming back online. Or did you have some other proposal and I missed it? o.o

failed to queue for server (0xA0010000) tested with multiple accounts and i get the null error. the launcher is no longer listing any servers only giving the que error.
the launcher also gets stuck in the login attempt and have to use the drop down to logout or exit the launcher

Maybe to clean up the huge dragon and Malicia, that Cordovan spawned before the server went down?

Well, he's grounded.

No one ever posts, "Thanks for all the hard work. I log in without any significant issues 99% of the time. Thanks for making DDO a fun pastime for me, my friends and guild members!"

Well I'm saying it and posting it. In forums (like democracy) the vocal minority make a lot of background noise. Well, the quiet majority vote in both cases.

This team has more analytics on servers and performance than any of us realize. Probably less than 0.01% of the forum population (myself included) has the background and knowledge to provide truly constructive criticism.

I can't offer any help beyond a note of support and my patience while the issues are resolved.

I logged onto Orien, cause it said it was up. However, I couldn't get into any quests, cause all i saw was a loading screen, until i just crashed the program. Not Cool.

Well, guess I'm making elk burgers, then. Hopefully Cannith will be open when I'm done eating.

had an image come to mind there with a server farm, each array neatly labelled with the name of the server they are hosting... and in a corner there is an amiga labelled wayfinder ;)

Heh. I think more like the old HP "Nova" servers... say a H30... sort of contemporary of the Amiga, but server-type hardware that'd just chug on past minor problems... and when things broke it was that much worse to fix it.

Well, that and it could also take several hours to complete a simple scheduled reboot. As in one with no problems it couldn't get past by itself, see above... though with enough hardware diagnostics a cause might be able to be found.

And given its bus architecture, it'd also occasionally cause low-level lag timeouts during heavy usage. Was always fun explaining to the monitoring team that the uptime monitor poll timed out because the server was too busy working.

Thanks for working Sunday night. I am glad you guys can and will come in at the drop of a hat.

Lucky for us they have been celebrating the 10th anniversary with the rest of us.

Wish Khyber would come back up.

Hmm Crystal Cove has always made me stutter and imitate the rubberband man. Winterfest not so much as CC. Still. Why stack them in at the same time? To see if the servers could handle multiple events? If that was the purpose I'd say you have an answer.

That said I, by and large, agree with Feverish. You guys catch a lot of flak and very little congrats. I'm an old retired guy basically nailed to my house and I spend an outrageous amount of time playing DDO. That outrageous amount of time is due to y'all's efforts to keep this thing afloat and I appreciate the effort. Thanks.

This, I'd love a text adventure. Just a diff thread solely for that would be great.


Ok, so I am starting to find myself in agreement with the whole take the story to a different thread party.

Took these two's advice and made a CYOA on Off-Topic.

Actually they were at work, Cordovan was lagging out Sarlona with mobs in the harbor when this all started, lol.
