    All others are fine, but trying to connect to Europa hangs at the 'connecting' screen, before you reach the character list....

    Guess we have to twiddle our thumbs as usual until the USA wakes. Until then we can all play mushrooms and wait in the dark. 2 1/2 hours now and no acknowledgement.

    Just to add insult to injury on the connecting screen where we are all stuck this appears:-

    I absolutely agree of course I have been idle for 3 hours now and it is FAR TOO LONG. So when are they going to do something about it?

    Cant connect either :( just stalls at the ..connecting...can login on other shards :(
    Biggest problem on europa and every other none atlantic/ asian shard is shard shields...
    With shard shield, everyone and their gandmother can xfter items at 0 cost to or from atlantic, and sell thise items for highest price.
    So ofcause people are setting the price to match atlantic, most items are gonna be xfered to atlantic anyways, if they are sold too cheap.

    well im ok with that, ill keep selling at europa, with fair prices. I run a luna shop, and always thought that is better to sell a lot of items with fair prices, than a few with high ones.
    So, please, go to ATL to sell ^^

    It's weird. The shard is there in the list. Just can't actually connect to it.

    Yes, this does suck so very much. Playing hard again after soooo long away and now the server has rolled over.

    Looks very like, although the server is 'there' and responding to the login server, Europa has lost it's connection to the character data so you can't get to select a character to play...

    In the past, when I was running networks, it was a fairly common error for people to test a server was 'up' by simply prompting it to respond, but what you really need to do is not simply see it is physically present but also make sure it is functioning as it is meant to. I'm suspecting the automated systems monitoring the UO servers are only doing the most basic 'is it there' check, so never triggered anything to tell the devs there was a problem.... until, with luck, they see the feedback from players and start looking at it.

    i see Europa just was removed from the shard list so surely a fix is in the works...a response from the devs would be nice if its gonna be awhile....

    LOL at the timing, just last night I finally finished arsing about getting all my favourite belongings together for my 'grand move back home' to Europa (I'd been mulling it over for months). The last batch of Atlantic crashes and threats of rollbacks finally tipped my Libran scales and Saturday night I purchased a transfer token for 60m and started to pack. Moved back home last night and haven't been able to log in since hehe, God bless Ultima :D.
