0.10.0f Patch and Scheduled Downtime

We deployed the 0.10.0f patch last night - it has several improvements that we were very pleased to patch in. As you may know, we can add servers to our network and/or deploy patches with less than a minute of downtime. Tonight, however, we took the servers completely offline for 3 hours while we added additional database servers. This is a rare case of downtime, but will hopefully substantially improve the stability of the game during peak hours. The downtime was from 9:00pm to 11:50pm NZ time. Update: Now that downtime is complete, we have reworded this post to be in past tense.

To clarify, the website is going down at the same time because it uses the same account database as the game servers. We're re-sharding the number of databases the accounts are stored on, which is an operation that takes several hours and cannot be performed on a database that is currently running.

Edit: I should probably note that due to factors we haven't predicted, this could take less or more time than we've estimated. If it finishes early we'll bring the servers up right away. If it looks like it's taking longer, we'll post on our Twitter!

Edit2: We've pushed the maintenance back by two hours. I have updated the times in the above text.

Edit3: All done!

If it looks like it's taking longer, we'll update this thread to let you know!


Wait, how will you update this thread if the site is down?

Hello, I'm RL.
Great news. The experience is noticeably hindered by lag and instability during GMT 6-11pm on the EU servers.
