Game Server Offline 3/30/19

Post by Snaek » Sat Mar 30, 2019 9:52 pm

We are continuing to work our way through a recent issue that has caused the game to be offline. The website and forums remain up as well as email. We've been making a number of security improvements to combat ddos attacks and suspect one of those may be the issue, but it means going through each change one by one to confirm.

Given that it is the weekend, response time between us and our server host is a bit slower than usual. We hope to have everything worked out by Monday. Thank you for your patience.

I am happy to announce the game is back online, and sooner than expected! There was a firewall issue further upstream that was causing some of our ports to be blocked, including the 5900 port used to connect to the game. As far as these things go, that is great news. It means A) it wasn't our fault, and B) it wasn't an attack.

Shattered Isles prevails!
