    Hello everybody,

    Somewhere in the upcoming days or weeks (date to be announced later), we'll be performing a big maintenance update to our servers.

    What is going to change?
    The past weeks we have been working on migrating our servers to Linux instead of Windows.
    This due to the amount of server crashes that has been happening lately and due to cost reduction.

    The main benefits of the Windows to Linux migrations are:
    • (hopefully) less server crashes.
    • Server Management improvement (Control Panel for our servers)
    • Cost Reduction (windows license is around 8$ a month, while Linux is Free)
    • More available resources (Linux is not as performance heavy as Windows is)

    Are we going to notice anything ingame?
    No, Players won't notice much diffirence in how the server is acting, besides less server crashes.
    Everything will remain the same for our players, as we won't be making any changes to our server config's (besides mapcycles etc...).

    How long is the migration going to take?
    During testing it took us about 3 hours (at least) to configure everything properly and setup atleast 2 servers. This is from installing the OS to having our Main Gold, Main Silver and Teamspeak server running.

    We'll perform the maintenance during a time when not many people are around, which is somewhere between midnight and afternoon (GMT). However the exact date and time will be scheduled later.

    Maintenance Scheduled for: 2019/12/09 13:00 - 18:00

    The scheduled but still not so scheduled maintenance will be done today.
    Servers will be down from around 13:00 till 18:00.
    If we're done earlier, the servers will be back online earlier.

    Maintenance is been completed and servers have been online for a couple of hours now.

    If anything is wrong with the server (crashes, wrong permissions, mapcycle broken, weaponsettings broken etc...) please contact me, so we can look into it.

    Servers will be down for about 15 minutes due to hardware changes.
