In other news, I missed lots of BA. ;)

AdminTal Destra February 25 2009 9:16 AM EST

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 9:17 AM EST

Yep, I couldn't access it since around ~7 a.m. this morning, until now...

AdminTal Destra February 25 2009 9:18 AM EST

DoS February 25 2009 9:18 AM EST

Neo Japan February 25 2009 9:20 AM EST

QBJohnnywas February 25 2009 9:20 AM EST

It's been down since cache flush again.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] February 25 2009 9:23 AM EST

AdminTal Destra February 25 2009 9:25 AM EST

lol im 24 and running the whole east side of town USA Today paper route ~100 miles every morning

Brakke Bres [Ow man] February 25 2009 9:28 AM EST

Ow I might add that the cache flush broke the server again...

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 9:29 AM EST

Well, maybe we'll get some free BA. ;)

Sickone February 25 2009 9:30 AM EST

Down from 4 AM until 9 AM server time... at least that's how large the hole in my combat log is.

QBOddBird February 25 2009 9:57 AM EST

I often find myself asking the same question, Neo Japan, despite him having already told me.

{cb2}Dinh February 25 2009 10:01 AM EST

Free BA....yeah right...I lose an 8 million dollar Tat do the games inefficiencies and Jon just looks the other way...kiss your free BA goodbye

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 10:03 AM EST

A guy can dream, can't he?

QBOddBird February 25 2009 10:05 AM EST

I'm dreaming of having Chat right now. *sigh*

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 10:24 AM EST

Dinh that was a direct result of your actions, don't act like you were blameless.

SuperHD February 25 2009 10:41 AM EST

yeah CB is back :)

Hey luck is on my side, because last night when i woke up to go to the bathroom i almost open the computer to maximize my ba (yeah CB IS addictive) but finally went back to bed..

This morning i went to cbstuff.nl, and this time i was able to register, but it says i had to wait for an administrator to confirm my registration, so i was unable to post about CB down time.. But i am getting closer :)
Next time it happen i am pretty positive i will be able to post in cbstuff.nl.... yeah :)
ok i tried to open chat and it made Mozilla crash... first time it happen, i guess i'll leave chat close for sometime.
Thanks to whoever is reponsible for cb being back yeah

(non-related to present topic advice: don't rent the movie Transsiberian...i 'll go get a refund at the video store since i did not like the movie.) its pretty cool that videoclub refund you if you did not like the rented movie :)

Brakke Bres [Ow man] February 25 2009 11:17 AM EST

chat is back.

Ancient Anubis February 25 2009 3:11 PM EST

i would definantly like to c at least 400 ba given to everyone to compensate for the last 3 times carnage has been fun this time i missed out on over 160 ba closer to 200 and it is extremely frustrating. To avoid affecting clan scores give the ba to us on sunday hey jon but we should get compensated.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 3:30 PM EST

Maybe this would be a good time to mention that this is a FREE game where you only pay if you want to and paying doesn't generally influence to an overly great extent.

You can't demand to get compensation for a game designed as hobby for John, for the moment jut be glad that CB is up again and usable.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 25 2009 3:33 PM EST

IAA, I understand you missed BA, but we all did, I think its fair either way, free BA or not. If he does give out free BA, people who logged out 2 minutes before Jon hands out the free BA will miss out on their next 7 hours of BA because Jon gave them 200 BA 2 minutes after they left, so they wont get a single BA refresh all because they did not know free BA was on the way. So your fairness might not be fair to everyone whereas everyone DID miss cache flush downtime BA.

{cb1}Linguala February 25 2009 5:46 PM EST

yeah...and i've had enough with these downtimes.
Time to quit again for a while...how adictive this game might be, not being able to log in 2 times in as many days totally kills it.
Anyway, have fun, see you when I feel like CB'ing again.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] February 25 2009 5:50 PM EST

Ling, you cant leave Mitt and I, lol. Plus you havent broken 200 mil yet!

"i 'll go get a refund at the video store since i did not like the movie."

I realize that this isn't the purpose of this thread, but I just wanted to say quickly that that's an interesting thing to do. You rent movies so you can watch them without having to buy them. Why should you get a refund just because you do not like the movie? That's not the movie rental places' fault. *shakes her head* Seems incredibly cheap to me.

And now back to the topic, I am glad that chat is back up ^_^ And I don't need the free BA :)

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] February 25 2009 11:16 PM EST

The "i 'll go get a refund at the video store since i did not like the movie." analogy doesn't fit this very well....something more like ""i 'll go get a refund at the video store since the movie kept skipping/stopping." fits a little better.

AdminNightStrike February 25 2009 11:31 PM EST

I've taken this thread into consideration, and have decided to refund everyone.

All users will be receiving deposits into the paypal account associated with their login email addresses for the cost that you pay for logging in to CB and playing.

The video rental analogy fits, and I believe you should get refunded just as you would when you pay for a rental, and the video skips around or is broken. The video store is kind enough to give you a full refund, so we will, too.

Look for your $0.00 within the next ten minutes.

Elite, your pic is shweetness >:)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 25 2009 11:34 PM EST

NightStrike has been hanging around Jon for too long... huzzah!

kevlar February 25 2009 11:36 PM EST

"$0.00 has been added to your funds"

Thanks, NS!!

AdminNightStrike February 25 2009 11:53 PM EST

Nov: What's funny is that if you search the archives, you'll find a post from me that is similar. I was running my NCB (my current character, actually), and was hit with a long flurry of outages. This was during the time between the purchase of the new server and the switch to the new host. The previous host, if you recall, left us with constant outages.

An outage on a bonus-laden account is very painful, and the loss of one day was the equivalent (at the time) of 7 days for a Jan 1 2005 character.

Someone explained to me, however, that that helps to account for the losses that the Jan 1 chars experienced over the life of CB. And frankly, the logic makes sense. In fact, it makes it so that as CB gets more stable (and really, it's been *incredibly* stable compared to earlier years in terms of uptime), the outages during an NCB run are less frequent, and more offset from what a Jan 1 2005 char experienced.

QBRanger February 25 2009 11:58 PM EST


That logic is not entirely true as the N*B is designed to get you to 95% of where characters are NOW, not where they would have been without any outages in the past.

If Jon can make the N*B based upon where the top character would be, then allowing for down times during the N*B run would be adequate.

And who knows, this may be the beginning of a long streak of daily down times.

Varcas February 26 2009 10:22 PM EST

I'd consider the 1600 BA head start some people use with NCB's to probably make up for those downtimes.

QBOddBird February 26 2009 10:43 PM EST

Though it involves a TON of money to do so, the ability to transfer an NCB from one person to another gives it an enormous potential advantage over the NUB growthwise...so yeah, I think we could excuse a few outages with that kind of potential ;)

it does that chaosol by the expertise of wielding heavy armor easier
