SYNOPSIS

Within the ever changing universe, the calm world is separated into several realms:  Human, Demon, Asura, Infernal, Heavenly, and the unknown Chaos.

Unbeknownst to the various realms, a being called the God of Chaos, emerged to propagate his doctrine of the world where, “No rule cannot be broken, everything can be twisted.”  This God of Chaos caused much turmoil with all the paths crossing through one another.  This event caused the boundaries of the realms to suddenly close and the realms were unable to return to their original state.  This broke the stability within the realms and an endless war ensued.  The world nearly collapsed under this turmoil.

The heroes from each realm began to ponder a solution to open the boundaries between each realm, in order to correct the problems that the God of Chaos created and to return the realms back to normal.  However the strongest heroes of the realms were lost since the closing of the boundaries.  Thus, the problem of how to find the boundaries of the realms and how to open them, become a more difficult puzzle to solve.  At this crucial and dire moment in time, several virtuous heroes stepped forward to take on the challenge as they were unaffected by the doctrine of the God of Chaos.  Join them as they fight strong enemies and take on the heavy burden of expelling the God of Chaos in order to regain control of this chaotic land!  Embrace your ETERNAL DESTINY!

February ISP Work Schedule: Possible network downtime
2/8/2011
We have been made aware of several important ISP work plans that may have an impact on network performance for all our titles and Websites.  Our ISP has recognized a possible issue with their routers that run their backbone network lines, and are taking steps to fix the problem in an orderly and quick fashion to prevent a bad degradation in service or disconnection down the road.

Where we fit in this plan is any router that is updated must be taken down for 3 hours or so, which makes traffic reroute to other routers so the network traffic continues.  When such rerouting is done it usually is accompanied by a change in traffic speed because of the longer route and possible capacity issues with the new route.  Furthermore if that router is very close to our servers it is possible no route is available and we will be "blacked out" while the update is taking place.

Our ISP plans on doing these ISP maintenances through February. Many of you may have noticed a network drop late January, that was the symptom that started the ISP investigation and plan to fix it before it happens again.  Below are the known ISP maintenances that have the best chance of directly affecting our service availability.

  • February 9 : 2am - 5am  Possible Black out, and/or suboptimal routing (Latency)
  • February 21 : 2am - 5am  Possible Black out, and/or suboptimal routing (Latency)

Please note that during February there is a strong likelihood of intermittent problems in the morning hours due to these updates taking place throughout our ISP network.

Rollback Compensation Announcement
1/10/2011

As most of you already know, we experienced a serious database error over the weekend that led to three separate rollbacks effecting users who played on both servers. A number of you lost items, character progress and gold bars. We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience you experienced.

We will be providing compensation for your lost time and money. Here are the steps we are taking for compensation:

· We have logs of all gold bar transactions, so we will be able to return any lost GBs to players.
· We will host a Double XP Weekend starting at 8 a.m. server time on Friday, Jan. 14 to 8 a.m. server time Monday, Jan. 17.
· We are adding a free extra week of time to subscribers who were affected and providing Trial users who were affected with a free week of Deluxe subscription.

Unfortunately, a side effect of the database crash is the loss of all logs regarding in-game money transactions, trades and purchases, making it impossible for us to refund all of those losses, and we sincerely regret that. We are currently working to upgrade our DB procedures. Some of the steps we are taking include:

· Monitoring database transactions to detect error conditions prior to problems occurring
· Monitoring disk IO for potential overloads that could slow DB queries
· Potentially switching the current name-based hostname selection to IP-based selection

We have a team of engineers currently working on the issue and we expect to have a fix soon.
