By Svarthol

L1YK-V - The ongoing conflict between the FREGE and Ka-Tet alliances escalated into a full scale fleet battle in the drone regions yesterday, with FREGE suffering heavy losses. An earlier skirmish outside the station in the R3P0-Z system between the FREGE forces and two Ka-Tet carriers served as a preface for the heavy fighting to come.

CONCORD declares naming committee for the new regions.

By Svarthol

In a surprise move at a press conference today CONCORD delegate Ashiro Nakuyama announced the beginning of a ‘capsuleer outreach’ program. Critics see this as a shrewd move by the powerful organization responsible for Empire security and stability which in the past has criticized much of the independent capsuleer community for being at the top of their most wanted lists. The delegate went on to briefly explain the continued rogue drone threat and the sheer potential of a mass incursion from the ...

Tranquility Issues Resolved

By Svarthol

This Monday it was brought to our attention that an alliance couldn't get Sovereignty 4 in their capital system even though they should. Looking into it we concluded that their capital station was a conquerable station which shouldn't be possible to set as a capital station. Fixing this required changing procedures in the database so attempting to set a conquerable station as capital station causes an error. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen behavior in the server code a certain argument was pass...

Recent Tranquility Database Issues - An Update

By Svarthol

We still haven't been able to identify the exact cause for the recent database issues on Tranquility. However, we're moving slowly closer and each crash brings us one step further in diagnosing what is wrong. We know that something causes a random database thread to block other threads access to tables (application locks), which then rapidly prevent more and more threads to access data, ultimately resulting in the database initiating a fail-over to its active stand-by server. Even though the res...
