Server Service Interruption and Happy Holidays!
« on: December 27, 2014, 05:27:40 AM »

Hello everyone!

New Server Status: Frosted Igloo Server

Our current service provider for our game server OVH is no longer supporting windows operating system which means they will be unable to run the AoP FOnline server. Unfortunately, I have been slacking off on that department and have not come up with a suitable provider use so the server may go down for a extended period of time. So the estimated time of service interruption may be 0 to 1 month, for that I want to apologize to the few players still playing the game! A big issue currently is that I live in North America. While I can setup a server local to me, it is not so great for most of our player based in Europe and I have no idea which companies there are in Europe or Russia. Perhaps I should of seriously asked for help earlier! 

To dispel any rumors of AoP being dead, well personally, I have no intention of quitting, we've been working with a small staff since launch and we've done a reasonable amount of work with what we had. The holidays have really kept me away from AoP which is apparent by the lack of weekly updates we've been doing since the launch. Furthermore, we've been working on multiple larger features which I've briefly spoken about in random parts of the forum. I'll go into detail about them in the dev corner when it is rolled out.

Finally, I want to thank everyone that gives a damn about what we've done and are doing! You guys are awesome and clearly have great taste :^).

Wish you all happy holidays, let's make 2015 a good year!

Oh, no wipe planned, hopefully I did a proper job of saving all the server data.

As much as it could currently sucks for us, it might be a good thing for the server, if it is put on hold for a while, and brought back with new features. It would allow to spread the word for this new "event", and have more than 15 players when it reopens.

And before that, we might have some kind of pre-wipe frenzyness.

That's sad, but think of the bright side!
Those 15 players will switch to fo2, and after (0 to 1 month) aop will (THIS SERVER IS CALLED ASHES OF PHOENIX FOR GOD'S SAKE) rise anew and better. Imagine their enthusiasm!

Shutting down of the server and development acceleration aren't connected, and if they actually  are, probably inversely.
Players leaving the server (especially to other servers) are not always coming back.

would donations help you find a new host in a timely fashion?

or is virtualising windows on a linux host an option?

I would be happy to contribute funds or knowledge towards either solution.

I am an IT guy, happy to provide advice, just PM me.

What are the specs of your old provider?
How much bandwidth per month are we using?

Now might  be a good time for a series of mini-event, like the faction HQ seen by everyone, Boss enemies sent into the core, rare items hidden somewhere, supplies drop in Hospital, anything that would overwhelm that "pre-wipe" frenzy with great memory.

Turn the bad into a great moment.

Yeah, but it is the same thing as an end cession.
Instead of not being able to play your current character forever, you are not able to play your current characters for a while, that could last quite long.

In any ways, it is time for a last round of PVP/PVE/RP/Anything frenzy.
