Unplanned Server Downtime 5/8/2020

There was some unexpected server downtime for the past, let's say, 12 hours or so...

The host the main login server VPS was on was having issues with multiple VMs.

I don't know if the host has been fixed or if they've migrated the login server to a new VM, but I did notice, when I woke up, everything was restarted.

I've put up the login server again and things are running now as they should be.

I'll inquire and update this post with more information as I have it, but the game is up now.

We apologize for any inconvenience this down time may have caused you.

Thanks for understanding.

Fodra temporarily down due to connectivity issues

Hello Hunters!

Due to the constant connectivity issues on Fodra for the past week, the ship has been taken down temporarily. Auldrant and Lumireis are still available and are not having issues currently.

The timers for the HBR quests (Maximum Attack Stage 4 -R-) have been removed on Auldrant and remain on Lumireis.

We will bring up Fodra as soon as possible when the connectivity issues have been resolved. If connectivity issues begin on Auldrant or Lumireis, please let us know as soon as possible.

Apologies for any inconvenience!

RESOLVED -- Current connectivity issue since 4/20/2020 @ 01:30 UTC

So, there appears to be some sort of connectivity or routing issue going on at the moment.

Some of you will not be able to connect to the game.

This is also the reason Lumireis is not showing as it cannot connect to the Chicago server either.

I've opened a case with NFOservers who have escalated it to the NOC.

Thank you for understanding.
