Servers should be up and running again as of 12:05 PM PST on Monday, March 28, following patch-related downtime that began about 11:30 AM PST.

There was an issue on Viridian at 5:50 PM PST on Wednesday, March 30 that prevented pirates from logging on, and caused lag issues with those already logged on. It was resolved at 6:10 PM PST.

At 8:55 PM PDT on Wednesday, April 6, all servers were brought down for a patch. They were brought back up at 8:58 PM PDT.

Tourney fees are refunded in the event of a reboot.

Just the fee though, not the pot you put up. =(
I was told it was returned, but only my entry fee was.

No more putting pots up fer this pirate.

I double-checked your pirate's transaction history, I'm quite sure the pot was returned to your pocket. If it wasn't, let me know.

There seems to be another glitch in that I was memming on midnight today and I had memmed part of the route from Guave to Cnossos, then when I logged in later, it had been erased. Plus I still cannot put money into my ship coffers

Due to the rollback, some of your progress may have been reverted, sorry.

Ok, Viridian is hiccuping a bit.

We just had 5 of us booted at once, and took me forever to get back on - in the middle of an Imperial SB too

Internap, our upstream ISP, is having issues. We're working on sorting them out - it's not affecting all of our users, but I was disconnected as well earlier.

Edit: things seem to be fine now.

Viridian had a minor problem with doubloons being invisible, so is currently not available for a short time.

Edit: it's fixed now.

Hmmm is this fixed yet, or is it something on my end. I brought my laptop to work but not sure if the connection Im 'stealing' has some form of firewall or anti game/forum software installed. Shouldnt really since I am hooking it up straight to my laptop. Since i cant play right now Im gonna catch some zzzz's. I will check back when I wake up.

[size=7]yes I am still at work ;)

Your work is probably blocking high port numbers (Puzzle Pirates uses port 4007). I'll PM you instructions for connecting from work.

I've been disconnected about 6 times in the last 45 minutes. The third time I started getting the same message when attempting to log back in. Just now, it gave me the message three times in a row before logging me in fine the fourth time.

Make note of where it times out.

Har yarr and all that...

Just a quick question related to uptime. My friend told me that Puzzle Pirates's trial account works on a limited number of connections. I've so far lost two of those connections to server outages. No biggie, not really complaining or anything, but I was wondering (before I get my hands on my buddy's credit card to register) how often outages happen? I'm less concerned with losing the guest connections and more concerned with how frequently it's happened so far.

That said, my third login went off fine without a hitch, and it's really a lovely game, I have to say. I'm just wondering if I should expect 2 out of every 3 sessions to have this sort of problem...

Thanks. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this sort of question...

One or more servers can go down for the following reasons:

1) Program updates. Recently, this has happened pretty frequently, and is usually announced (especially in-game). However, in the past, months have gone by without any updates.

2) Network outages. Rare, but have happened. Impossible, obviously, to predict.

3) Other mishaps. Even rarer, also impossible to predict.

Alas, you've just been hit with a bad run of luck. If you've been booted due to program updates, know that they TEND to happen earlier in the day (California time) so if you try to only log on in the afternoons/evenings, you can usually avoid those.

It's quite possible that you're behind a firewall that's preventing you from connecting to the server (we use port 4007). To confirm this, could you please give me a copy of yohoho.log? Thanks.

If the problem is indeed evil firewalls, I have a solution which will enable you to circumvent the blocking of Puzzle Pirates by your Internet Service Provider.
