By Svarthol

The Interstellar Starbase Syndicate has recently come across a bump in the road in the form of the once hospitable Band of Brothers Alliance.

Termporary Suspension of RMR testing on Singularity

By Svarthol

A critical bug was discovered in the code applied to Singularity recently. This bug allowed the one-shot destruction of celestial objects, like stations, stargates, asteroids, etc. Rebooting Singularity did not restore the objects. Needless to say, we consider this bug a show-stopper, and Singularity has been removed from player access until the bug is fixed. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause, but since players are being stuck in systems where the stargates or stations have been ...
