Hey folks,

I know that some of you experienced a "rollback" after the downtime we experienced early this morning. I wanted to let you know it is possible you may see a small rollback after the downtime we are currently having. In fact, this is the exact reason the Harbinger came down. We worked to bring down the server immediately, which is why there was unfortunately no in-game messaging. If we had left it up we would have created an environment where rollbacks could have been even more severe and that is definitely not something we want you to experience.

Later today you will see a post from Tait announcing that we are going to be having a maintenance tomorrow morning. This maintenance will be in part to address server stability issues such as these. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. We are working to address the issue and to bring the Harbinger up as fast as we can. Thank you for your patience.

As a note, if you are on any other server, you will not be affected by this issue.

Can you all check into Jedi Covenant for these lag spikes please? Why none of you bother to check our reports about the same issue that is happening in Harbinger happening in other servers not as severe as in Harbinger but could become severe if you choose to do nothing about it.

I am happy that the odd bit of lag will potentially be fixed, though the only place I have really noticed it is when wandering around my Stronghold. Maybe you could make it a decoration item to straight up remove a door once we have unlocked a room.

I don't want to have to repeat my CZ daily though, because I woke up way to early, ran the daily and went back to bed, I don't want that to have turned out to have been a boring dream.

Can you be a bit more specific on what a small rollback means? How far back are we rolling, exactly?

If that's the case, then why are Begeren Colony & The Bastion also down?

If this is a database corruption issue, then depending on the DB architecture, they may rollback to the last non-corrupt checkpoint for the database. That could mean a rollback of an hour, or to the last server restart, or maybe further. It depends on what caused the problem and when. They may not be able to predict how far until they figure it out.

Maybe they got crushed by all the Harbinger people moving there until Harbinger comes back up?

I'm not being funny, but it's quite obvious the Hardware you're using for the Harbinger server is faulty or the software is buggy for that hardware. It's the only server that seems to consistently have issues.
