No idea. Something similar happened to me before. Once the entirety of Armageddon crashed on me. I'm talking the game, the forums, the website. Poof. Gone. Then when I finally got back into the game after like twenty minutes everybody told me that it was just me.

It was very much down. It's back up again, though. Bit laggy.

Edit: I suggest you people get Discord and join Armageddon's channel. Can always find out if you're the only one who crashed or not through there.

I think it happens about 4 times a day during my playtimes. Small crashes, server reboots within 5minutes (and that's the longest I've seen)

Coders will always ship bugs. I created a small one today. Maybe let players run around in a test sandbox if they want?

There's also the idea of a Jenkins Continuous Integration server, altho I imagine you've got something like that running already, and that depends on having all the tests and linting all set up.

By the way, on the /old/ armageddon page, you can see uptime.

Scroll down towards the bottom.

I have a script that monitors this and logs me in, sells my hides, then logs out whenever there's a reboot.

Script Noob! Mine runs me form outpost to outpost (on an erdlu so I outrun aggros), resting my mount in room away from aggro spawn points, buy lows and sells high.  This runs for about three game days, then returns me to Luir's, deposits the coins, and sends me to the spice den to buy a bottle of whiskey, roll some tho' and rent a whore to celebrate with.  After all the crashes last week, I'm sitting on about 600,000 obsidian coins in my Nenyuk account and my character now has sandfleas and possibly a case of crotch-rot.  Thug-lyfe, merchant style.

The crashes and consequences of said crashes got frustrating enough that my logged in time took a really big nosedive.  I'm looking forward to things getting sorted.  Thanks to the staff-folk working on getting things more stable.

As frustrating as it is for you all I can assure you we find it as frustrating or maybe even more so (hello reimbursement requests)!  I have been working hard to get a reasonable patch ready ASAP but there are some other mitigating circumstances that are slowing the release.  I think I am at a place where I can run my test plans again but it took way more coding than expected. I hope to get the last of the bugs worked out shortly. We believe that there are three distinct bugs that can crash us that will be resolved. Please bear with us as we get this all sorted!

And then I click on "Check the connection" and see if it's just me or if the game is down.

It's down for me too, and it isn't rebooting as expected.

If only we could do seamless reboots!

I can only assume you are getting that from old.armageddon.org.  As the name states, it is old and not maintained at all.  Current uptime is 03:17:25 after the maint. reboot and release this morning so it's clearly just reporting improperly.

I was kind of hoping there was somehow a method of integrating code without a reboot. Though at that point, the Merchant Class would become super-nerfed. ;)

Yeah, I totally see what I did there.  Minor misstep with my reboot procedure this morning.  Should be all back to normal now!

Basically. Once every three, or four years, my character manages to survive past day 15. This downs the server as Ginka is not used to this occurring. Nathvaan just killed my character and everything works just fine.

True story.  RIP Amos Cofefe McCrashington. You will be missed for a few more years!

Really though it has to do with some behavior that happens VERY rarely and puts some additional character in some save files.  When that ever increases past a maximum string value it cause the file to be improperly parsed and prevents booting.
