[Fixed] Server go boinkers again ? (in General)

Sickone May 1 2012 8:53 AM EDT

Error messages on all fights, 10 minute suspensions and all that jazz...

Demigod May 1 2012 8:54 AM EDT

Yep, not safe to fight right now.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 1 2012 8:55 AM EDT

Screw it, i'll go to bed rather than try burning 300 BA then :/

Mikel May 1 2012 8:57 AM EDT

very annoying.

Mikel May 1 2012 9:02 AM EDT

Your ability to fight has been disabled for 20 minutes. Note that multiple suspensions will result in longer penalties, however you will continue to regenerate BA

To prevent this from occurring in the future, make sure that the fight page has finished loading before trying to fight again.

AdminNightStrike May 1 2012 9:15 AM EDT

Fighting is working fine for me, and has been for XP time... I'm not sure what the problem is.

AdminNightStrike May 1 2012 9:21 AM EDT

Found it.. obscure little bugger. I reset all suspensions.

Sickone May 2 2012 1:57 AM EDT

I think clan points might be broken too.
455 successful attacks by me on clan targets in last 24h, 467 incoming attacks on me total, negative 624 clan points.

BestNUB May 2 2012 2:10 AM EDT

Yeah I noticed that Clan Points are behaving strangely too.

AdminNightStrike May 2 2012 6:00 AM EDT

Fixed this some time last before midnight last night.

Sickone May 2 2012 8:25 AM EDT

Gotcha, so not retroactive, but only from that moment on.

Sickone May 3 2012 8:31 AM EDT

It started doing it again !

Unappreciated Misnomer May 3 2012 8:33 AM EDT

Yup, you beat me to it. I noticed more active players but less fighting going on?...

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 3 2012 8:36 AM EDT

annoying :/

AdminNightStrike May 3 2012 9:01 AM EDT

While I admit that introducing new bugs blows, at least I'm trying to fix things.

Sickone May 3 2012 11:56 AM EDT

We need a few clones of you to have 24/7 overage of bug squashing :p

Sickone May 6 2012 12:21 AM EDT

Hmm, now it's throwing suspensions without even the CPU warning page showing up beforehand...

Can we PLEASE lower the suspension period at least temporarily ?

BestNUB May 6 2012 1:20 AM EDT

Working fine for me o.O

KittehShinobu May 6 2012 6:23 AM EDT

why not just disable the suspensions UNTIL all of these bugs are fixed. ^_^ It would make it easier if you want to introduce bugs to the game lol.

Sickone May 6 2012 7:51 AM EDT

Not like they *want* to introduce bugs :p

Unappreciated Misnomer May 6 2012 11:09 AM EDT

I find cb to be slow this session.

AdminNightStrike May 6 2012 8:50 PM EDT

To do that would require always having CB allow limitless fight clicking.

Sickone May 6 2012 10:28 PM EDT

To do that would require always having CB allow limitless fight clicking.

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean.
Isn't the limited amount of BA supposed to stop that from happening, not fight suspensions ?
Or is there some weird stuff I'm unaware of that would make the BA limit not matter anymore if you kill the suspensions thing ?
That's weird.

AdminNightStrike May 6 2012 10:31 PM EDT

Without fight suspensions, people could hammer the server with a billion Fights a second. Only one fight at a time would go through, but we'd be screwed over because of all of the overhead of the denial traffic.

As it is, when people do trigger server errors, they typically try to hammer the server to check if it's fixed every few nanoseconds.

Sickone May 6 2012 11:04 PM EDT

So put the fight suspension on a 6 second timer at start instead of 10 minutes with the same percentage ramp-up (so, basically, divide all current suspension times by 100). People who genuinely get this by accident once in a while should not be bothered much, while people seeking to willfully abuse it would end up exactly where they would have ended up anyway, just a bit later.

AdminNightStrike May 25 2012 1:16 PM EDT

I don't think I could do 6 seconds, but I could definitely drop it to like.. a minute. I'll look into it. Meanwhile, this bug is fixed.

Sickone May 25 2012 1:36 PM EDT

One minute as base sounds reasonable.
I assume the added penalties later are proportional to that, not fixed ?

AdminNightStrike May 25 2012 2:27 PM EDT

It's a multiple of times that you've been suspended since cache flush.

Tabaldak May 25 2012 5:45 PM EDT

I don't seem to be having any problems, today or last night
