    Good Evening Everyone,

    As I am sure you are aware by now that we are having a few issues with Great Lakes. I am very sorry to have to say to fix the problem we are having to revert to 6 pm EST.

    Speak for yourself. Two hours, while inconvenient, is hardly the end of the world. I'm simply glad it's back with a short revert. Could have been much, much worse.

    Did we even get a proper apology from that last cock-up?

    But it was almost 9pm Eastern when Mesanna posted, and they reverted to 6pm Eastern! That's 3 hours!

    I want 1 free month per hour, and a cross-game revert to 5pm Eastern time.

    Being serious now, why are people even comparing our minor inconvenience to the depressing disaster that befell Atlantic? They don't belong even in the same category -- not from an inconvenience perspective anyway.

    Due to people who possibly transferred off the shard in the time frame, we ask you revert Atlantic back another two weeks. There could be possible dupes there.

    I don't play GL but in all seriousness..what's up with the reverts did they really mess up or downgrade their server/hosts that much?

    By the evidence they are giving us you need to ask? <rolls eyes>

    Heck, you can't even change your password via the account log in new billing system these days. I tried to do it earlier.

    I have to say.

    All in all I like the positive attitude of most of these posters.

    I really like the late night hours post from Mesanna updating us on the situation.

    Do you ever sleep Mesanna? :) Thank you to you and your team!

    A lot of other companies would say see you at 9am the next morning and I will get to it right after I get my cup of coffee

    Well, if you ask me, all of these IDOCs are creating massive memory holes, and/or serious stress due to the extreme number loot scripting going on (and before anyone bothers to say they don't exist, consider yourself a flat earther and join the 21st century). The server has been having multiple bouts of server-line issues, and what's not merely coincidence is that these bouts of recall and server-crossing lag happen at the precise moments that major things fall. Most of the time, the server recovers just fine and moves along, and you recall or cross seconds later. This particular time, the server couldn't take it, and crashed.

    I mean, in the grand scheme of things, the number and severity of reverts we have been experiencing lately is far better and far more acceptable than when the game began, and are few and far between. The memory of Atlantic will stick with us for sometime because it was such a massive and extensive revert, but other than Origin's occasional reverts, they don't really happen all that often anymore. The last serious one on Great Lakes that I'm aware of was in 2009, and involved some serious issues in Luna. We got a t-shirt to commemorate it.

    "the number and severity of reverts we have been experiencing lately is far better and far more acceptable than when the game began"

    *caugh*

    errm.. 15 LONG YEARS ago...

    *caughs some more*

    Still trying to wrap my head around what is so "acceptable" with an issue that is over a decade old when technology has gone how far since then? But ok lol, not going to argue.

    Okay, welcome to the internet. NOTHING, not even Google, is immune to occasional crashes. Sometimes something goes wrong.

    Seriously, on your shard, how many reverts have there been in the last year? In the last two years? In the last five years? They do not happen often, and when they do, they are minor. Atlantic's revert has been the first major revert in ages and ages and ages. Yes, I know, Origin has had much more frequent reverts, but that's because it's a "live" test shard.

    I'm not sure what you're having an issue wrapping your head around. The last MAJOR crash on Great Lakes was in 2009. Roughly 4.5 years ago. An occasional minor because of a systems crash is not exactly something new to online games.

    I was going to reply but I dont feel like getting into a long and drawn out debate. We can simply agree to disagree.
