    In this case the UPS failed for some unspecified reason. The servers crashed "hard", and transaction logs were lost.

    So the UPS is their backup power? Glad we still host our IT-Infrastructure ourselves then, lol. Longest power outage we had that I can remember was 7 hours, without any servers shutting down.

    Turbine didn't say precisely, nor would I expect them to. UPS, Motor generators, etc., all failed to supply enough power for a controlled shutdown.

    Hehe nice. That explains why we didn't get any updates on ETA. They were all to busy.

    I "lost" about 15 mins. Fortunately I wasn't doing anything in that time but chatting and leveling my cleric from 9 to 10.
    As far as I could tell (I was bit busy getting ready for work, so only took a glimpse at my char) she's fine and all invetory is there. The only strange thing is that she has a tales of valor item in her inventory. First time I see such an item in the inventory (it was the end reward of a quest I completed before).

    It seems I got lucky. I hope all you guys don't run into problems.

    Yep, people I've been in touch with agree about 15 minutes of play time was lost. I wasn't in a quest, fortunately. Those who were are going to be understandably upset if it takes away a completion.

    Well, I checked the character I'd been on because I had just reset some enhancements and did a bit of re-gearing.

    Lost the Star of Day I'd traded for.
    My enhancements all needed to be re-spec'd.

    I have NO IDEA if I'm short the plat I spent to reset AP - but not really worried overmuch about it. The Star of is a bit of a downer, as it was a decent combo. I traded again (twice) and got fairly poor ones. Ah well, may put in a ticket on that ... but probably not.

    Next time people on the forum complain about the use of the term "scheduled" (as in, "scheduled downtime" notified within one hour of the event), I'll point them to this.

    Seems like about 5 minutes were lost. I had just finished a CitW when the game crashed. I logged on today and had none of the loot from the six chests but I did get the completion, which tells me it wasn't more than a few minutes.

    A pinion and celestia dropped and both were put up for roll. Pinion was looted but the servers crashed before the celestia got passed to the winner. I feel sorry for the people who won the rolls. That's frustrating.

    EDIT: Also remember seeing a 3->4 upgrade dex tome.

    Most Internet pops I worked on in college had disel generators with only a 12 hour capacity for when the power went out. Always struck me as as low since the generators held so much fuel. However, the battery rooms are massive and they typically have 4 giant air conditioning units per floor. If you're curious all power inside these pops are DC.

    I'm sure data centers have some sort of backup that might not last the lenght of the power cut.

    I logged back in with a Tales of Valor in my backpack. Listed it on the ASAH both to see if someone would buy it and to see if when I get it out of the mail I get the renown.
