It's been like that for a few days now. All week-end for sure and today as well. Never been able to log in on first try, any time of the day (from 7:00 am AET to 21:00 AET). And I'm a doublons subscribers... I don't want to imagine how it is for others people.

i cant seem to get into any ocean at all at the moment, and keep getting this message:

Logon failed:Either there is a temporary network outage or the server is not yet fully operational. Please wait a moment before reconnecting.


any word on wether this is not really the case?

All the oceans are running like molasses going uphill in January. Midnight and Viridian seem to be the worst. It either takes almost 2 minutes to log in on Midnight, or I get the "server is under heavy load" notice no matter what time of day. Even making a trade, the poe changes hands within 45 seconds, but the trade window stays up there for a couple of minutes more.

Ya it has been doing that... But... Ice is usally never has over 30 members online on a non-release day. And also it doesn't show me the heavy pressure messages just says logging on and nothing else. I've had it open for more then 5 minutes.

Edit: Now it does say its down for maintenance

I just figured the new forums or the complexity of furniture was eating extra bandwidth, thereby slowing down the whole process. I could be wrong though.

Server status: tons of lag. Juliah will agree with me. Took me fifteen minutes of "heavy load" and "server not operational" to get online. and then my hearty list was gone. Also, with regards to the new ocean... why not fix those that exist before implementing a new one? If your infrastructure can't support the game's popularity, why not concentrate on updating your capacity before trying to expand it?

We want to spread our users out over more servers - it's the high population density, combined with some database-intensive things with furniture/housing that are slamming the servers.

Are the furniture/housing database-intensive things an issue now because furniture is new, or do you anticipate it being an ongoing problem? We experienced dcs of players in three consecutive battles last night because of this - I would hate to see something fun like furniture break something crucial like pillaging.

Yes, for me too.

Ocean == server. If the oceans have so many users that they can't handle the traffic, it's time to shift some people to another server.

I totaly agree.
We need the users on the oceans, just for the fun of it.
It's no fun when only 300 pirates are online.

The worst that can happen would be maybe 75% of all the players trying to move to Sage for about two weeks. Eventually it'll balance out. I doubt Viridian *ever* has less than 800 players on, going by what I hear about overcrowding.

I'm sorry that I was not able to immediately respond, I was taking a day off answering stuff after that last release. Although I sometimes will answer things 7 days a week, please don't expect this of me every single time, or I'll work myself to death. :)

a00 - can you please post the results of a traceroute to cobalt.puzzlepirates.com as well as attempt to telnet to it on port 4007? Thanks.

cheap369 - the issue you are experiencing -may- be related to Windows internet connection sharing - is your brother's computer the one with the connection to the internet, which his computer is sharing with yours?

It seems very odd that you're being blocked beyond the colo's router when trying to access Cobalt, but that midnight works fine.

Port 4007 is one of the ports that Puzzle Pirates can use to connect to the servers.
