Unfortunately Warzone was down for some hours on January 4th. I'm so sorry about that.

Everything should be fixed now. If you still see any problems, please let me know.

This happened because Amazon decided to shut off the database server. They did send me an email a few days ago saying they planned to shut down this server on January 11th. I was making plans to re-build the server. But then last night, while I was asleep, they sent me another email saying they needed to shut off the server more quickly than expected. By the time I woke up, it was already shut off, which brought the game down.

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience, and I'm working to ensure this doesn't happen again.

Just a suggestion:

In such cases activate vacations for all players for 3 days. It could happen, that players boot as they aren't available when the server starts again.

I have intermittent connection issues. I have done orders in some games and sometimes it pops up with connection issues.

Maybe it is from everyone hammering at once?

One day vacation should be long enough imo.

Are you sure everything is fixed? I can open all my games except for a QM game I received minutes after the down time ended

I have intermittent connection issues.

These issues should be fixed now too. Can you try again and let me know if this still persists?

You should reroll the past 8-12 hours if that is possible. Make it seem like it never happened so boots for games that matter won't matter.

No problem, Fizzer, shit happens!

If it happens again, and if its not to much work, like people said earlier here, if its possible it would be nice to add 1 day vacation to everyone before starting the server again, if its possible ofc. :)

This is the first time WL/WZ down for so many hours(at-least for me) and now it is fine.

Yes, make precautionary measures to avoid such problems and also few compensating ways to stop boots during such unforeseen events.

Some of my games seem to be not booting at the expected time, which is fine because of the shutdown. The only one that it didn´t happen was a game of 1v1 ladder. I don´t know if there´s a way to avoid it, but I second the comment that it would be good if the boots were avoided, at least for one day

I missed WZ during the down time. On the other hand I got more work done today than I have in a long time. hmm.

Thanks for a fantastic game.

This.

I was booted from 5 games because i couldn't take my turns earlier. My vacation was scheduled to end about 3 hours ago and the game server was down for basically the last ~5 hours of my vacation.

The ladder games i don't really care about but losing 2 tournament games where i was in the ro16/64 and ro32/128 hurts. Luckily i cut down my games a bit before going on vacation.
