Macro users banned

By Svarthol

Hello everyone. Today, we moved against macro users on Tranquility. Macro use has been growing lately and we are well aware of the trend. We have been collecting data on those involved and biding our time, which has resulted in the macroers growing ever bolder and more visible. That makes our job much easier and for that I thank them. Right now, we have banned over 100 accounts and we're nowhere nearly done yet.

Sunday Tranquility Startup Troubles

By Svarthol

Tranquility had problems starting up today and we immediately started diagnosing everything, trying to pinpoint the problem. We still haven't found exactly what was causing the problems, but we have localized it to 10 machines. The workaround to get Tranquility up is to start without the 10 servers which seem to be the problem, since it's most likely network related.
