    1. Today, a few hours ago, about when we called for the emergency maintenance.
    2. Yes, you could lose data, the whole friggin server could be wiped. I daresay that VASTLY outweighs you losing one arena out of the week.
    3. See answer for 2.

    Easily compensated? no, if the whole server got wiped, you'd all be boned, there's no way we could restore it.

    MAN PLUS 2 million to you YOU MY FRIEND MALE OR FEMALE WHATEVER IT MAYBE YO SIR/MADAM YOU ARE AWESOME THIS GUY/GIRL is the BEST GM/CM or whatever your position maybe GREAT JOB <3:D:p:p

    Thank you guys for finding the problem and pulling the server to fix it! I'm upset that I'm missing out on arena time too but, it doesn't matter. Once you get to 2.2k, all you run into are op Cata and Final teams that don't need anything from the arena and are only there to prevent anyone from advancing their chars. I'd rather have no arena tonight than to spend the rest of the night pissed off at them for dropping their ratio or boosting lowbies so they get matches against people they can one or two shot. ^-^

    I refuse to believe that you just told us all that you do not have a backup strategy in case of fire, flood, lightning etc etc, IF you over spoke i hope someone slapped you "just a little", IF you dident, omg is all i can say.

    (heeh, go get a coffee. i know it would upset me reading this many idiotic posts) :D

    Let's see how many people pass this post up. Server could be wiped. Meaning your lv 80, full 12/12, IV gem character is gone, for good. You'd really rather give up all of that just to have one day of arena? If so then geez, I feel sorry for you.

    A server wipe means everything that was there is deleted. And not meaning a "moved to recycle bin" type of deal. It's a permanent deletion.

    Idiot, lookup the word "Backup". Its something you do on servers daily, or worst case weekly.

    Ye. Unless you're being threatened by an imminent HDD failure, sparks flying out of your electric outlet, that sorta thing. Idiot.

    Or do you think they backup the files to an external storage device then have a government escort help them carry it to the vaults inside the Pentagon every week during maintenance?

    Thank you. Now, back to business.

    1. Few hours ago? Why didn't you do it immediately? Since it " Was an emergency". Seems to me this forum post was made...hm... 30 minutes in advance to Maintenance and you guys FOUND the problem hours beforehand? Doesnt seem like an emergency to me if you waited this long?

    2. You're correct, if we lost the whole server that would suck... You're still not understanding the point though. And I will argue until its understood.

    3. It could be compensated, its quite easily done. Whether you choose to do the work necessary in order to keep a frustrated player base would be your, as the companies; problem, choice and responsibility.

    All dependent on their setup.

    1) Are the backups housed in a different server, or is it a redundant system that is also tied into the original servers to allow real-time backups that could then be wiped along with the original drives?

    2) How recent is the backup? Again if it's real-time then we're screwed when it blows. If it's not then that means they have to backup the drives manually, which would put the closest theoretical checkpoint somewhere around last Wednesday.

    3) Is it a complete system backup, or just key pieces to allow restoration to a functioning state? Odds are they don't do full-system backups regularly, so assuming the drives are completely wiped then the most recent backup would be even further back, likely in the range of the Lycan update.

    distinct possibility that if they shut the server off, data may have been lost... they had to weigh the options of an on-the-fly backup, or shut down and backup.

    too many variables to judge with no info

    4. The "frustrated playerbase" consists of half a dozen d0uches who are either incapable of, or simply refuse to listen to reason. It is also within the companies' choice and responsibility to ban your annoying asses without giving you so much as an explanation.
