I am well aware of the current errors that are going on around RoB, and I'm not just sitting and watching. The server guys are actively checking the logs and see what's causing the 502s, and are zapping them as they come in.
As for the top of hour wait time is increasing and hovering over the 1 minute mark, that is unacceptable. With more and more in-game competition and more and more people fighting over blood at the top of hour, things are starting to heat up! Over the last week I've been looking at hardware solutions to help overcome this. I won't go over the nitty gritty of the tests we've had carried out, but I hope to have something done soon.
For now though, I'm going to spend the day optimising the database until my fingers bleed. There are some room for improvement there as we're hitting limits, and I do have a couple ideas how to speed things up a little until we come to a permanent solution.
I think a bit of compensation is required as we carry out this work. For 2 days (until wednesday evening) enjoy:
- Double Turns
- Promocode: marcherrors (includes the turns for the missed toh)
Things should start to look a bit better towards the end of the day.
New rank 50 quests have headed your way over the last week, they are:
- Strange Request
- Strange Request II
- Strange Request III
- Strange Request IV
- Strange Request V
Some of you may have heard I've started selling Reign Of Blood wristbands. This months competition will pay out plasma for the top people who buy a wristband, and take a picture of it in an original way. Click here for more info.
Thanks, and I apologise for the inconvenience.
