  • [Announcement] Emergency Server Maintenance @ 1AM 08/14/2012

    We'll be taking the servers down in about an hour, at 1AM EDT, 10PM PDT to perform an Emergency Maintenance to fix an exploit we believe may be responsible for the increase in lag and sever stability issues. Downtime is expected to be 2 hours, but could be longer or shorter. Please keep an eye on this thread for updates.

    After researching the lag issue, we've think we've found a probable cause for the increase in server load. We've uncovered an exploit being used and we think the activity surrounding the exploit could be the cause. Unfortunately, we can't be sure if the Maintenance will actually fix the issue or not until after we've performed it, and monitor the servers to see if things go back to normal.

    So players are aware of the change we are making to the game, the newbie equipment one gets will no longer be able to be sold or traded. Upon accepting the 2nd quest and getting the weapon, we noticed new players selling the weapon for a copper, abandoning the quest, getting the quest again, getting a new weapon, selling the weapon...wash, rinse, repeat. We think the gold farming sites have been using bots to get gold this way, and with an increase in bots, its caused an increase in resources on the server, and thus an increase in the lag. This issue would be particularly aggravated on merged servers.

    Again, we are not 100% sure this is the actual cause, or it could just be one thing adding to the issue. Or it may not have anything to do the lag issue at all, but we won't know till we close it up and see what happens.

    Our apologies for the delay in your enjoyment of our game, but we are working to improve the performance. Thank you.

His forum duties are now history. He's off the twig, he's kicked the bucket, he's shuffled off these forums, run down the thread count, and joined the ex-R2Games Employees Club.

                  I don't know about other servers but on Cheurna Gorge and Amethyst Forest the gold bots are no longer spamming world chat and pms. They just open a shop with their website as the title. They litter SG L1 with these shops and sell things like magic dust for 20Platniums so no one buys it and makes the shop disappear.

                    This has nothing to do with events. The post clearly states this is in regard to the second quest of the game. Next time, please read the whole post. Just a friendly suggestion.

                    We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause regular game activities, but there will be no compensation as this is an emergency maintenance. However, hopefully by fixing the lag issue, that will be compensation enough *crosses fingers this fixes the problem*
