    The bottom line is that these problems have occurred in the past (server not allowing people on but some are permitted to remain online and kill at will) and Evony has not come up with a fair procedure to prevent these kinds of situations. It would be understandable if it was for only 15-30 mins, but upwards of 7+ hours while allowing some people remain online? Then to have Dawnseeker blatantly lie to everyone was icing on the cake.

    i think dawnseeker should be removed as a rep. of evony for lieing to everyone like he did..

    As for a rollback, while it sounds great on paper it's a risky process to undertake for one server let alone all servers, and would have caused even more server downtime it potentially could have doubled the amount of time that the gameservers were down. Some people may have been impacted, but not enough to make such a process worth doing.

    It's not a "just" remedy, it's the remedy you want. Some others would counter with it being unfair because they already played since the servers came back up and losing that time would be "unjust". Who would be right? That's a rhetorical question though, as the decision has already been made on the subject of rollbacks.
    Yet, a rollback was done on NA29 today, and although it was done to stop a bug from the outage, there is impact to many players from both events...implications of both the rollback and the outage don't appear to be accounted for, net net after both events. i.e. benefits of fb buffs were not active from the outage start thru the rollback.

We lost heroes, worth more than 100 cents, we lost cities and resources and time. We lost money that we paid into those heroes and cities and evony doesn't even care. It's heart breaking to know that we put so much work into our accounts so that a few could take advantage of a server issue and take from us, then to have those same people get theexact same compensation package...its unbelievable. Although I do not know if I will be quitting, I do know that my paltry $60/month will be going elsewhere. Evony will do a server rollback for server exploits, but will not when their incompetence allows an exploit...nice to know that they don't follow their own terms of service.
    I find this funny she will not place the name of the account(s) that she still plays on ss57. But one that she gave away and says it's retired. Why not place the name so that the threat of leaving the game will have a meaning.

    I don't think he lied. I think he's just not a technical person and didn't know that the people connected to Seattle were still able to be on, and since the login farm went down, those that play on servers hosted out of Seattle could not log on, thus leaving the situation where some were able to be on, while others could not be. For those of us playing on servers hosted out of San Diego (notice I said "us", that means I'm in that group), everything was down, and his statement was correct.

    In short, I think he doesn't understand how his company's game works. He's demonstrated that a few times. I don't mean this to be mean-spirited, Nathan, or Dave, if either of you are reading this, but this is why you get so much vitriol - because sometimes your players know more about the game than you all do as employees.

    wn2 is hosted out of Seattle...

    How you can tell is by doing a ping or a tracert of the "battle" name. The Seattle group starts with IP addresses of 208.x.x.x.

    battlen1.evony.com is 64.156.194.76, so that should've been unreachable.

    battlewn2 is 208.88.18.192, so that should've remained up.
