For those who think nothing happens, we actually do most of our work in the background without posting every action (yes we know you like changelogs, we do too)
So, after a long (10 pages) ticket, that has been open for the past 2 weeks with our hosting provider, we received the replacement:
A better machine, with newer hardware (e.g. Skylake, DDR4, Samsung 850 Pro) and completely different network cabinet.
Also, our web is temporarily hosted on the main server machine in a VM, since our old host contract expired, and now we are moving them (website and forum) to a new, separate machine:
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 4 GB RAM, SSD drives
Hopefully this will resolve all connectivity issues, so that we can provide you with the smoothest service possible, wether you're playing the game, hammering markets or posting on our forums.
We will complete the migration around Monday or Tuesday next week, we'll try to make it as a normal maintenance, but just in case, a few hours of downtime should be expected.
We cannot delay it any further as we need the remaining time to finish S12 and prepare for the 10 years anniversary in September.
Thank you for your patience and trust,
Not much for now, if anyone was wondering where I disappeared... recent family events in real life brought grief for the past weeks.
For this reason I had literally no mood or time to work on the server, so we had to postpone S12 update for August.
In other news...
Forsaken will no longer be a part of our Staff team.
