Lightning & Blitz Downtime

Post by Laanders » Feb 13th 2021 00:53

Edit: Service has been restored.

As many will have noticed, lightning and blitz are unreachable as of around 23:45 UTC Feb 12, just over an hour prior to this post. The reason seems to be memory issues with the server. Unfortunately we are unable to reach the server to address this. We have reached out to the people running the server to perform a hard reboot, however we currently have no timeline for when the problem will be resolved.

A Hail Mary reboot command sent down along a nearly unresponsive terminal ended up going through after about half an hour's wait. Both game servers are back up and running again.
