7 days = $1,000,000 of daily chaining.

14 days = $1,700,000 for daily chaining.


More than that is negotiable.

yeah, yeah.... we all lost bigtime....

I had well over 6000 int, and now i dont even get the chance to rebuild that, since i no longer get edupoints.....

What in the sweet cold hell can be worse than losing time? Days is essential in this type of game. Losing 30(if not more) is a serious kick in the groin. I'm sorry, but i can't stay and play a game without a serious backup... Even with your promises.

I got a hat.

Ched along with the others who have been ripping us off should be put on trial and ched should be put in federal jail for 6 months for doing this to us.

If he refuses that then we should file a class action suit against everyone involved in this THEFT BY DECEPTION!!!

nice to see people congratulating you on a job well done ched,

however, given the so called recoverables:-

"Firstly the things which are recoverable and will be exactly as you left them 4 days ago:
Items
Factions (although users will have to be reinvited/kicked)
Donator packs (you will have to use them again)
Battle stats
Auctions
Awards
Forums
Pets
Friends/Enemy lists
Some but not all crime"

I don't have the awards I had, I have barely any of the crime I had, I don't have the pets I had, and the DP that had 20 days to run, I don't have either.

Add to that the fact that the job I'm in is having zero effect on working stats, army points, and the money I have.

I'm thinking that what you wrote about recoverables is a crock of shit and that TC ain't yet fixed.

So maybe, just maybe, you could add a post that in some way mirrors the truth of the situation, or possibly just fix the damn fucking game in line with what you've already said can be fixed.

no more lies eh, just tell it like it is. You could always start by accepting responsibility for the monumental fuck up that caused the data loss in the first place.

well it's three days now since we came back up and I don't see anything changed. Nothing has been restored and this is all a big waste of time. If I'd known that I'd be investing in a site that can't even check on it's own back ups, I'd have quit on day 2. Get with the program and fix what you said you would fix and admit you made a mistake. Your denial is what is pissing off so many people.

I heard we were going to get our houses back. Everyone I know has gotten their houses back but me. Gixer and I had a mansion. Anyone else not get their house back yet? (I know it'll most likely take awhile before we all get our houses back, I'm not complaining, just wondering about other players)

Although it could have been a hell of a lot worse, some user data has been set back by one month. This does not include quite a few things. Bear in mind, this was in no way our fault at all, and will NEVER be happening again ever.

The worst part: All user accounts created in the past month have been removed from Torn City. Their donator packs however ARE recoverable by using donator issues.

-Just prior to an upgrade (literally an hour before), a RAID controller failed
-During this failure one of the drives died - probably killed by the controller. Since we were using RAID-0 in the short term for performance, this is fatal. (again, this was going to be changed to RAID-1 approximately one hour later).
-This combination of failures killed the partition
-Despite 98% of these failures being recoverable, the array has been examined professionally and it is not recoverable
-We therefore have to rely on our backups. We have offsite backups of the database, however on examination these have only been taking the first 80% or so of the database. This is entirely the host's fault for not checking them, although the method used was standard (a mysqldump) and there was no error produced during the automated backup process.
-We therefore have to use old data for the last few tables - basically the users table.
-This is a combination of worst case scenarios that it is hard to foresee. We shall of course be manually checking offsite backups regularly from now on.





HereÔs where we stand.

Firstly the things which are recoverable and will be exactly as you left them 4 days ago:
Items
Factions (although users will have to be reinvited/kicked)
Donator packs (you will have to use them again)
Battle stats
Auctions
Awards
Forums
Pets
Friends/Enemy lists
Some but not all crime EXP


Things which are not recoverable and will be approximately one month out of date:
Your level (set back one month)
Education courses (set back one month)
Your points (set back one month) (but DPs will be recovered meaning a lot more points back in to the system)
Your property (set back one month)
Bank times (set back one month)
Completed missions (set back one month)
Merits (set back one month)
Password (set back to what you had one month ago, please change them)



I would like to make three promises to you for the future.

1) We will do everything in our power to produce at least one large update every month from now on.
2) In future We will ALWAYS give you at least 24 hours notice before a downtime to the hour (not including emergency downtimes)
3) We will make full backups daily and check they are all working fine to avoid anything like this again
4) We will make further manual full database backups to our home desktops twice per week
5) Long downtimes like this will never happen again
6) Data will NEVER again be more than 24 hours out of date if anything like this happens again.

I feel Torn City has grown a hell of a lot stronger over the past 4 days. I promise you, by march 1st, everything will feel back to normal again and with some nice new nifty upgrades.

I sincerly apologise, but promise nothing like this will ever happen again.

I will post a short blog tomorrow answering all questions and how far along the process is.

Thanks very much for understanding.

Without sounding critical to the younger players, you all say you lost factions and a few mil.

A lot of higher levels lost 1m stats and above, and you think they arent fuming? of course they are - but i can tell you one thing. being young in the game (days-wise) is of a benefit to you. you have the power to make all of it back without any hassles at all. its not going to be very difficult. the quicker you stop complaining and start working to what you used to have will show you that you can become a better player from not repeating the mistakes you made before when you were trying to level. now you can do it all right and become more powerful than what you were before!!

so this is a forum signature eh? just looks like a text box to me

good words rev1,

But, how can I increase my working stats and thereby get better paid jobs when the job system is not crediting me with any stats or any points or any cash?

Seems like that bit is still broken
