The server showed every standard symptom of having crashed when Azis and I finished one sortie around 9-ish if memory serves.  Eastern Standard Time my end.

We both just jumped to our personas on the EU server and finished the night there.

 

As I mentioned to him last night on Discord here we are, one mid-Eastern Canadian and one Western American playing a video game on a server on another continent with full two-way communication no less.  We have come a loooooooong way,  baby. 

Viz. I started off with a spinach-green text-only IBM 8086 when there was nothing on the net but screeching modems, billboards, university libraries and that was it, pre-Yahoo, waaaay before the WWWeb.  (Thank you Tim Berners-Lee and CERN)

Anybody remember search engines called Archie and Veronica?  Go ahead, date yourself. 

So when something radical like a continental server crash happens I don't take it hard.  Once upon a time there was NO internet I'm here to tell ya.

(Ya think maybe the Russians hacked it?)

don't think i can date that hard without a decently-aged scotch.. best i can muster up is getting into internet gaming in the GEnie age, at which i imagine you'll chuckle a knowing chuckle. :P


Yes, I am an A-S-S.

 

I am welcomed in the home of ravens and other scavengers in the wake of warriors.
I am friend to carrion crows and wolves.
I am carry me and kill with me and die with me where the road ends.
I am not the honeyed promise of length of life in years to come,
I am the iron promise of never being a slave.

Myne didn't work either, found out everyones has been working for hours, so I played around. Try logging in with a different network, like a mobile hotspot, that resolved my issues, now I have lots of catching up to do.

that's not going to help me,

I hope it helps someone else tho

2nd and 3rd were going to be my days

lost the 8/2 so the 8/3 got blown off

oh well

.

.

.

oh yeh, got my sunday crate and got the:

CTCS "Crash to Cloud Screen"

.

.

.

if it helps, I noticed the screen does a fast flash of :

"changing hanger style" when you win the 3 days premium

and gets frozen in the cloud screen

upon first glance...

that seems to be the issue

oh well...

:amazed:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

The game was down for literally hours and it threw me off the pace for the ranking grind. Mildly disheartening.

Glad you lengthened the bday celebration.. frustrated no compensation for the lost time to make up places in the rankings and the lost premium/play time in general.

TY for addressing the situation at least though!!

Yes, this issue appears if you receive Premium time (having no Premium Days before that) and the Hangar changes.

well crap, I didn't get the connection that the 5x was considered a 'mission' on Monday


I missed out.     My chance to try to get some 5x when the Masters of the Universe were at work


it took almost 60 battles just to get the 21 wins over the weekend.    sigh

Aye, and Gameshark for PS-1 as well.  I used to have strings of cheat codes in my head for weeks at a time.  So did my daughter.  :playing:
