Hello all,

The Salphira (NA) server has crashed and we're in the process of getting it back online.

Thanks for your patience!

Update 1: Salphira is back online. We'll continue to monitor the server for stability issues, and will keep you posted if any additional issues arise.

Update 2: I am very sorry folks, the server is offline again and the team is working to get this resolved as quickly as possible. Please bear with us. I do not have an estimated time for when the server will be back online, but will keep everyone updated with our progress.

Update 3: Salphira is up and running again! We are keeping a close eye on stability, and will continue to post updates if we should have any further issues.

Update 4: Salphira has crashed this morning at 7 AM (PST) and we are working to bring it back online now. We will continue to work to address the underlying issue, and appreciate your patience. Thanks!

Update 5: Hey everyone, Salphira is back online, and our engineers continue to monitor the situation to address stability issues.

1:30 PM PST: Our Operations Team has been investigating the cause of today's Salphira crashes. Currently, the server is live and available for login but we're monitoring it for continued instability.

3:15 PM PST: The Salphira server has crashed again. Our Operations Team is actively working to restore it as quickly as possible. Sorry for the intermittent outages; we're continuing to investigate the cause of this weekend's instability.

3:45 PM PST: We can confirm that Salphira is currently being affected by a DDoS attack (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denial-of-service_attack) which has been causing the recent instability. Our engineers are working to nullify the attack's effects.

4:05 PM PST: The Salphira server is now live and available.

Can we get any kind of confirmation that it is a high server use issue since it has almost always happened during big battles at kraken? Remember, more communication. :)

Our server seems to crash quite often (not only tonight), and this is preventing my progression. Let's talk compensation.

there was no compensation last time with around 7 crashes daily
so guess there wont be now either

Coz we recover labor? Or maybe we cant do trade runs while the server is going down or off? Or coz we cant even play while is down? Sry but my patron is not beeing usefull whilr server is down.

Lol why should you get a compensation?

There was a period of time a few weeks ago when Salphira crashed almost 15+ times over just three days. Seeing it start to happen again over the last day, combined with all that... I think it's actually quite justified if they do choose to offer some compensation to the players there.

Big events have been interrupted, huge numbers of packs have been lost, and people log in to find the server in maintenance mode. When you're paying for Patron and you start losing hours of game time because the server has crashed 20+ times, for maybe 30-minutes to an hour every time, it does start to add up.

One crash, or even a few, is understandable. Things happen. But twenty crashes (or more) in a single 30-day period does have notable impacts on the players, especially in a game like this, where you can see a lot of effort vanish instantly due to a server problem.

+1 for the "Please, compensation, even if it's just warm cookies" team. :)

+1 for compensation for sure....................... This is getting beyond understandable, honestly. It does seem to happen to Salphira only, and this certainly can't be due to any sort of 'high volume' atm. Lost packs myself on this one and not happy because they were all high value packs...

Compensation is in order for Salphira server residents.

Some players have full time jobs, families, obligations, etc. They may only get to play in a certain window of time, and a crash or two, and they may not be able to play for the whole day. This can prevent them from competing in bids in the auction house, doing trade runs, doing rifts for honor, collecting the maximum amount of gift boxes for the day, etc. Can you honestly say that compensation is not warranted? For me in particular, one crash last night happened with 1 minute left on a bid in which I was winning. I could have easily made 100+ gold from winning this bid, and was unable to even compete when the server crashed, and lost the bid. These crashes may not be a big deal to a hardcore player that plays AA 8+ hours a day, but it is a big deal for others.

this, combined with the no compensation when the server crashed 16 times in 38 hours, i think we should get some compensation at this point as well.

Can we just get free server transfers of our characters to a different server? It'd lighten the load on this one and then those of us not too attached to the server won't have to completely start over on a more stable one. Seems like a reasonable request considering the history of Salphira.

I am not accusing anyone, but I realized that on weekends, whenever the SlayerS kill the Kraken the server falls ... is a bit suspect. It's good to check them out

Except that many of the times that the server has gone down this week was just BEFORE the East killed Kraken... not after. So your theory that they are crashing the server to get more shots doesn't fit... since it was crashing before they killed it.

The timing of the Dc's and the Server Crashes suggest that the problem is not the Server hardware, but some sort of Script related hacking. Just my opinion. Servers don't just crash on certain days if hardware is the Problem.

Hello all,

The Salphira (NA) server has crashed and we're in the process of getting it back online.

Thanks for your patience!

Update 1: Salphira is back online. We'll continue to monitor the server for stability issues, and will keep you posted if any additional issues arise.

Update 2: I am very sorry folks, the server is offline again and the team is working to get this resolved as quickly as possible. Please bear with us. I do not have an estimated time for when the server will be back online, but will keep everyone updated with our progress.

Update 3: Salphira is up and running again! We are keeping a close eye on stability, and will continue to post updates if we should have any further issues.

Update 4: Salphira has crashed this morning at 7 AM (PST) and we are working to bring it back online now. We will continue to work to address the underlying issue, and appreciate your patience. Thanks!

Update 5: Hey everyone, Salphira is back online, and our engineers continue to monitor the situation to address stability issues.

1:30 PM PST: Our Operations Team has been investigating the cause of today's Salphira crashes. Currently, the server is live and available for login but we're monitoring it for continued instability.

Well it is back down. Clearly there are consistent issues with the server, at very critical points in gameplay. There is clearly at least 1 person out there responsible for DDOS'ing when things aren't going their way.

We need back-up siege times. We need better server protection. We need this to be addressed.

No. I'd assume its most likely a hardware fault. Since it only happens to Salphira and it's been going on for WEEKS, how about we get a NEW SERVER? Better yet, swap this server with the Public Test Server, since it actually works.... a test server doesn't need to be as stable.

Because the salphira server crashes when the east is about to down it. preventing us from getting the kill. but when the west is making the attempt we have no server issues. for this to happen once or twice fine. but this happens to many times with kraken and sieges for it to be random.

Mostly RO trying to stop the Kraken kill? No, because each server down causes it to respawn, causing ENDLESS downtime.

In the United States, DDoS attacks fall under federal statutes. Participants run the risk of being charged with both criminal and civil complaints. There is no point in distinguishing between distributed attacks and denial of service, as both types of attacks fall under the same laws. A person simply needs to have culpability in the attack or attempt it to be liable for prosecution.

The Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (the “CFAA”) prohibits a person from “knowingly caus[ing] the transmission of a program, information code, or command, and as a result of such conduct, intentionally causes damages without authorization to a protected computer” (see 18 U.S.C. § 1030(a)(5)(A)). While broadly worded, DDoS can be classified as transmission of a “program, information code, or command”. Damage is defined as “any impairment to the integrity or availability of data, a program, a system, or information” under 18 U.S.C. § 1030(e)(8).

Under the guidelines of the law, those found guilty can face up to 20 years in prison. The law stipulates different sentencing structures, each depending on the severity of the attack as well as the intended target. Attacks against government websites and financial institutions face the harshest penalties, especially where national security is concerned.

Don't allow anyone not from NA to play on NA servers and problem solved.
They can wait for their own localization.
Phoenix Brigade would do it.
If you noticed the timing and how often the server's been crashing, that does add up to every 1-2 hours, do you even realize what you're saying? Like that IS happening.
Are you competent enough to read my complete post? The idiocy of DDoS'ing a server to prevent a Kraken kill (in which, they cause ANOTHER Kraken kill to occur shortly after), is ridiculous. Don't worry, we're happy people like you are not running this game, where you ban thousands of Australians / Indonesians / New Zealanders / South Africans / Brazilians / Asians, each, for the sake of your patriotism. Congratulations on losing millions of dollars a month for those actions, if you were to. In the end you'll actually find most of the DDoS attacks are from the USA when not China. http://map.ipviking.com/

PS: Phoenix Brigade lost their castle and there wasn't a DDoS. 1+1 seems to equal math you can't compute.

Why're so many people stupid enough to think that this is a collaborative event for the West, lol. Since the Kraken is there when the server comes back, don't you realize they would have to DDOS the server like every 1-2 hours to prevent you? Are you too stupid to consider it being some people on the East who you've angered? Or a guy who quit and didn't get a refund? Or an ex-Trion Employee? The possibilities are endless, claiming it to be someone on the west however would be one of the most stupid things that person could do, since he would be fighting against himself. PS: The server was also going down multiple times in the night when no one was online, including no Kraken kill.

Enough with the Kraken BS, please.

Oh but we did kill kraken last night. After 3 or more server downs and spanning maybe 12 hours. We finally got to sleep and prepare for the siege... till the servers went down again and the siege was canceled.

They should get the DDOS protection wand out and swing it and say some magical words. Obviously it's so easy.

Your night is not my night. No, no one was online, and there was no Kraken kill, the seas were clear. The server went down. There was 15 Rising On doing freedich runs, and four of my group doing Freedich runs. There were five slayers on Freedich, and one SIN. That is the entire combination of all life around that area, for hours, during "my" night.

Nothing new under sun.

All servers were down for two-three whole days before. It was worst back during launch months in addition to long queue lines.

After reading the article what stuck out the most was the other games were up and running without further issues, it seems like Trion does not employ experienced security IT individuals, or lets say they do have experienced individuals. But no one listened to what they said or are saying when it comes to changes needs to be made, or security measures implemented.

west can't win with numbers, so then they have to ddos. Pathetic.

Whenever the west has equal numbers to slayers and their allies, they win. Stop acting like you guys are good. I've seen you easterners in the 1v1 arena and it's quite a sad state of affairs.

Doing anything to protect DDOS attacks? Is this going to continue to happen? should I waste another 4 hours at Kraken to only be DDOS'd again?

Companies far far bigger with much deeper pockets then Trion get DDoS'd, there isnt a real magic bullet solution

No. I'd assume its most likely a hardware fault. Since it only happens to Salphira and it's been going on for WEEKS, how about we get a NEW SERVER? Better yet, swap this server with the Public Test Server, since it actually works.... a test server doesn't need to be as stable.

your head is to far in the sand if you think its hardware

you want to know why we KNOW it was westerners that ddosed the server? because not only has the server been ddosed, drax been ddosed, but our TS server was ddosed yesterday as well. it does not take a rocket scientist to see that if something looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it is probably a ♥♥♥♥ing duck.

+1

But then again it is also known that denissnider have had people DDoS'd going back to Russian beta of AA , i have even filed a formal complaint to have him looked into on twitch, to see if he has used his staff priviledges on twitch to pull people's IP's , since twitch should be able to see what accounts he access to get their IP , because funny enough they kept getting Drax's IP no matter how many times it was reset by his ISP , could only be connected to twitch and so forth, its been known so many times that the West is performing these attacks on either our GM or our Teamspeak.

Coming from an English Salphira player I am not surprised. The Brazilian players have garbage morals and are greedy as hell. There are a handful worth a squirrel fart in pvp but the rest are absolute trash. I'll be leaving my guild and refuse to play with pathetics like this.

Just take the krakkon out of the game until you can fix it. Only the big bully guilds are the only ones that can do it anyway. Clearly they don't like someone else making an attempt at it so take it away from everyone. Problem solved.

Jugger
01-26-2015, 12:08 PM
Or, maybe, the the DDOS attacks are happening because someone just doesn't like the Salphira server because brazilians play on it, or Americans? Since when did if have to do with the western faction killing a kraken or whatever? That theory is just silly.

I don't know, man, I think it's just 'cause someone doesn't like the server in general.

Silly post. If it were an outside source then it is happening at awfully convenient times. Most streamers don't stream in real time or while doing kraken/trades as they avoid advertising their attempts. The fact that it's happening with kraken30 seconds to 1 minute from dying is all too convenient.

This. I guess I'm glad it's not just me. It appears to be the char select that's the issue. I had a character in game, went to an alt and couldn't get back in, but my second account was still online. So of course I stupidly decided to see if it was just my computer by logging the other out and now neither can get back into character select.
