[UPDATE 1 Oct, 07 – 5:04 pm]
Still a few regions to go…
[1 Oct, 07 – 4:03 pm]
The restart has reached all regions. The Grid Team is manually assisting a small number of regions that didn’t process the restart automatically.
[1 Oct, 07 – 2:59 pm]
We’re still wrapping this up; we’ll post an all-clear as soon as possible.
[1 Oct, 07 – 1:57 pm]
We’re almost finished. Thanks for your patience; we should be done very shortly.
[1 Oct, 07 – 12:52 pm]
The rolling restart is a little more aggressively scheduled this time than in times past. Logins for some residents may be slow until the restarts are finished. Also, the nifty trick of wave-jumping the restarts by TP’ing to the Northwest is unfortunately no longer supported – the restart order is no longer dependent upon map location.
In exchange for this inconvenience, the restart should be finished much sooner.
[1 Oct, 07 – noon]
The rolling restart launched about four minutes ago.
The rolling restart previously mentioned on the blog has been postponed to Monday, October 1st. Due to the series of issues over the last few days (1, 2, 3, 4), we want to wait until the service is in a stable state before we make any sweeping changes.
We apologize for the delay in getting bug fixes fixes out to the grid, but want to play things safe.
The restart will start at approximately 11am Pacific Time (18:00GMT). Each region will be given a 5 minute warning, then restart at some point within a few hours of that start time.
