Earlier this morning one of the core routers at Jolt went down. This meant that Internet access was lost to all the Planetarion servers. Unfortunately we ticked whilst the servers were unreachable.
Initially we thought this was a major power failure and had announced a 24 hour stop whilst we investigated and tried to mend the issue. Whilst these investigations were on-going, we ticked a second time.
Having already announced the 24 hour stop, lots of people had already gone offline, to work, school or college knowing that the game was paused for 24 hours.
Therefore, we decided that we could not back out of the 24 hour pause and have come to a decision on the resolution of this situation. We realise it's not perfect but we hope it's making the best of a messy situation. A summary of what's happening is this:
- We have rolled back to tick 732 at precisely Tuesday 08:30 game time.
- Game access is disabled until Wednesday 08:00 game time.
- The next tick will be on Wednesday at 09:00 ticking from PT732 to PT733
- No fleets will be recalled by PATeam.
We sincerely apologies for the situation and are praying as much as you that the rest of the round progresses unhindered.
