King or Spirit? You decide in-game! Side with the King of All Hallow's Eve, or side with the Spirit of All Hallow's Eve! Players on the winning side will win a special prize! See the patch notes @ http://flyforsky.org/pl.php for more details.
The patch is up, the server is UP!
At this point I have to restart the server due to a bug I found as soon as I logged in.
Okay, server's up for real now.
At this point, I go to bed because it's 4 in the morning. I would find out later that at around 5AM Server Time the server turned itself off. After doing a little research...

Server's not up yet. There's a problem with the machine - can't activate windows, so windows shuts itself down after an hour or so.
Needless to say, this will be interesting. Hang tight, and sorry for the downtime.

Server's up, we'll see how long it lasts.
Server proceeded to go down ~20 minutes later as expected.

Tech Support is working on the issue as we speak.
At this point my support ticket had a 'In Progress' label on it. Since then it's been escalated to higher levels but nothing has been resolved yet.

No status update yet, everything's the same as it was hours ago. There's really no words I can use to describe this except that it fucking sucks. I'm sorry that we've been down for a day now.
In case anyone was wondering... No. This is not due to the update. If I roll the update back, it wouldn't do a damn thing.
There's pretty much nothing I can do at this point other than wait for support to fix it.

Support hasn't moved since my last message. Suddenly I doubt it'll get fixed today.

Nothing's changed yet; same as before. Like I said previously, apparently support takes sundays off (which is some shit).
Assuming they don't take mondays off, and they are half-way competent, it should be up in ~12hrs.

Some dude wrote:It's a good server, but with this? yeah problems might come. but not this long. if you care about the players. it should be done in at most a day. but now?
Reed10021 wrote:Okay fuckface. Here's the deal. This problem surfaced 20 minutes after I went to bed at 5AM on October 28. I woke up, investigated why the server was offline, saw that there was very much nothing I could do to fix this issue, and sent a tech support ticket to the host provider. I've done all I can do at this point, it's on support to actually fix it. It's out of my control at this point. I can't make support work sundays, and I can't make them work faster. I'm sorry you didn't get to play the new update this weekend, but you act like I'm not fucking angry that this happened. You act like I'm over here with my feet up, as happy as can be. No. I'm over here sweating bullets because being offline for a weekend is NOT good for the server and NOT good for everyone.
Some dude later apologized.
Status update: The support ticket now has the status 'In Progress', which is seemingly good news. I'll let you know if anything changes.
On October 30, 2017 at 12:04 PM Server Time, the machine was fixed. The server is back up and running.
