Title: June 26th, 2013 -- Rentfile Restore and Experience Changes
Post by: Aristox on June 26, 2013, 03:37:13 PM
    Due to an old, faulty script I ran this morning, all rentfiles of
players not logged in when I ran the script were lost. The only real
solution after that happened was to restore to the previous backup of ALL
rentfiles, which was from 4am system time today. That means some players
lost about 4 hours worth of equipment changes. There are a few players this
will hurt, a few others it will help, but most should be unaffected. Sorry
for any inconvience, but please remember our no reimbursment policy.

Experience Changes:
    At this point in a pwipe finding a low-level group is much harder, so a
change was made to the bonus experience system for grouping:
-Solo players will now recieve a large bonus to experience gained.
-The bonus experience for grouping was reduced slightly, only to simplify
 the code around this bonus experience.

    There is another, slightly more interactive, change we can implement if
these measures are not enough of a boost. We are going to let this
automatic experience boost play out a bit before we try the other option.

    Expect this experience change to be reverted at the start of next
wipe.

Are the stripped chars able to be restored, or has it fallen under no reimbursement?

Stox, your message states that you restored to 4hrs earlier to reset peoples equip. Not sure if you're aware, but it doesnt seem that restore worked, as theres a fair number of totally naked chars still, and its been about 20hrs since you restored...

Apologies, if you know and are working on it, but I havent seen anything in the forums since...

What had happened again?
I log off 10,5 hours ago fully equipped and stuff. There was no reboot or nothing during this time.
I log on and (check the enclosed log below)...

I consider this to be a pzap, done on purpose, since the renfile restore had been done on June 26th.

Would you please inform on why's and whatnot's of the issue, if I'm mistaken?

Yuri.

Oh, I see. Whole SoB clan was stripped, regardless of involvement.

Fine.

Good luck and thanks for the fish.

It's not aimed at anyone, we in BiA also had several chars totally stripped, so it's a bug i assume. Just wondering if it can be helped or if it's lost.
Kind regards Ralf

Nah, Ralf. It was a SoB pzap. Some of our characters have suffered in the Aristox script incident, too, but that's another case.

So can we get a reason why all of sob clan got their eq removed?  I rarely even play and I got my eq removed... So what's going on? All that I've heard is we pked to many people.

Which causes sob(half the player base) to.

You guys are hilarious. You've hit the upper most bounds of paranoia, seeing nate in everyone you deal with.

It's great. Keep it up.

Awesome. ALL of my characters were zapped. I'm not in SoB either, so I have no clue how this happened to me. Since I mud nearly entirely solo and what gear I had I cannot see how I will recover, I guess I'm done for a while at least.
