EVE is undergoing one of its longer outages for quite a while.
I’m intrigued about what is actually going on.
You would think logically that if a code change was causing the cluster instability that they should be able to identify what code was being patched, and reverse / rollback those particular units of work.
Was it an OS / Database / Firmware patch instead?
Did the patch in question do database updates which trashed physical data? That is a more painful scenario to recover from.
Are they actually working on investigating, fixing or reversing an exploit? That has happened before.
The armchair expert conjecture is keeping me amused.
(Are any of the EVE gambling sites taking bets, or do they all require the game to be up and running so that they can collect your ISK?)
