Unexpected Downtime

Just before the 1170 tick today the game server seemed to have crashed, exactly why we're still unsure about, we've been focusing on getting the game back up as soon as possible.

We tried to restart the game as soon the server came back up, however there had been some data loss, some people had their fleets wiped etc, so we were forced to do a rollback.
Luckily the closest backup was ~30 min before the server crash (middle of tick 1169), so the game has been rolled back to that.
Due to this being the final ticks, we've choose not to do delay things by 24 hours, but instead we plan on restarting ticks so tick 1170 will happen at 15:00 GMT, and then leave the game to finish with its final tick being 1177 as it would have been without this unexpected crash.
The game is fully accessible so ppl can recall/run fleets.

We apoligise for this having happened and any problems it may have caused, but with there being only 8 ticks left, the impact should hopefully be at a minimum.
