    Short maintenance of 5-10 minutes to apply the OS updates on another 3 dedicated servers. If any of your gameserver that you play on is offline, be patient as the reason is shown above

    Planned Maintenance

    Since there are some ongoing repairments announced by the DataCenter, 6 of our dedicated servers will be moved into a new room until the workers are done with the planned maintenance.

    So most of our gameservers will be offline for several hours (probably up to 4-6 hours max) until they are being moved and by tonight we'll have them back in the location under construction at the moment.

    I will update this thread when everything is back up, until then you may play arcade games, fps games or any other unaffected gameserver by the planned maintenance

    Most of our gameservers will be offline for several hours (probably up to 4-6 hours max) until the work planned inside the room where our dedicated servers are hosting and by tonight we'll have them back online.

    The new vent system has been installed. It lasted a bit longer than expected but it's for the datacenter benefit and same time for us since a better ventilation system means longer life for dedicated servers components and less planned maintenances.

    Planned Maintenance 100% Completed

    All servers back online

    Thank you for your patience

    We're experiencing some technical problems on the datacenter side with some of our servers hosted in Germany. In case the gameserver you are playing on is offline, please be patient

    Planned Maintenance announced by the hosting company that will affect several of our servers will take place on 10th June 12am PDT - 1am PDT (GMT-8).

    The servers will be unavailable for about 5-10 minutes at max during this time.

    The purpose of this maintenance is to upgrade routers IOS and prevent the short downtime of about 2 minutes we had yesterday due to some cisco routers bugs during large attacks, which seems they were launched on the market with this error.

    The planned maintenance did not caused any downtime as the hosting company re-routed traffic before starting so we are happy.
    They successfully announced the IOS upgrade and 0 downtime during the maintenance.

    Seems there are some issues on the hosting end so you may experience some lag during this time.
    It should be fixed as fast as possible so be patient.

    Fixed two minutes later.

    Diablo 2 - EU Realm is currently down due to an unplanned hosting maintenance. Four (4) of the main aircooling systems inside the datacenter have failed and engineers are working on getting them fixed or replaced. It's going to get back online as soon as they will solve it so be patient.

    US Realm is not affected by this.



    EDIT: The air cooling equipments have been replaced and the realm is back online.

    Seems the hosting provider is having some connectivity issues and currently re-routing traffic so please be patient until it's fixed.
    Multiple servers are affected so not only ours.

    2 minutes later, back to normal




    This was a planned maintenance by the hosting provider


    .

    Translation: It was an electrical problem that caused the traffic re-route for redundancy. It was fixed and it's working as intended now.

    All servers have been rebooted in order to apply a bug fix patch for the hardware firewalls. This reboot was mandatory.
