Right, Cryptic start doing tests and everything breaks like it did yesterday.
Its totally not Cryptic's fault things broke yesterday even though their tests produce the same breaking result without any prior notice ahead of time of the tests. I find it more likely Cryptic broke something, tried something else and it is still broke but they are spinning the PR wheel into saying it was an intentional test.
Oh but the breaks happened before the patch - Uh huh, so what exactly was Cryptic doing BEFORE that patch, huh ?
Whether you want to admit it or not, you're intentionally looking at only what you want to see.
Every PWE game failed, and actually some customers of internap that are near PWE complained too that they had some network issues. These problems started a number of hours before the patch was even released.
Because of the way routing works, successful paths are given priority for a certain amount of time. The effect of the down hardware was never going to be experienced by an entire single group at any given time - it was widespread in limited patches all over the world.
This particular problem was resolved last night, and everything was fine until about an hour ago. Now, I defend cryptic/pwe in this specific issue simply from personal experience. It is impossible to appease anyone when this happens, as its entirely out of their hands. They are forced to rely on people that are neither in their employ nor in their control - and, most likely, aren't even slightly regionally associated. Turning that kind of situation around and digging out of that mud on your face is not easy at all, and there really is nothing that can be said or done to make people happy.
That being said, right now is a different issue. It is STILL NOT RELATED TO THE PATCH.
The web server that reports back whenever you change maps, load the launcher, download patches, etc is refusing connections. It has, for all intensive purposes, been turned off. It wasn't a failure, it wasn't patching... it was literally turned off. This was done for testing purposes.
Most of us have no idea that it happened, and have only found out about it because we dug through the 7 pages since last night regarding the new issues.
Where is everyone located? This an East Coast/West Coast thing?
nope getting it here in the u.K
