We have decided not to credit back the money hunting made over the past month. We feel this would be very unfair on the other players since, as long as you travelled back to Torn you most likely would have spent the cash on items/put it in faction. Only the hunting money you had on hand or in bank would have been lost, which the compensation should more than cover. Sorry if you are affected negatively by this.

It is possible to give hunting skills back (although very complicated) but this could cause more problems than its worth. And since we will be implementing hunting changes with the upcoming 'patch', we didn't think this was worth it.

All donator issues have been sorted and users credited. I will continue to check them daily if any of the new players are late creating an issue for their lost donator packs.

We are still looking for decent compensation numbers, but I feel most of the players should be more than happy with the result. At least enough to get you up and going again.

Extra house: I realise a lot of people got extra houses (married people) and some people got better houses then they should have gotten. I also realise a small amount of people did not get their houses back, I apologise for this. All of these are side effects of the script which credited properties back. You are free to keep the properties.

As I said before in my first post, I really do thing this crash has strengthened Torn a hell of a lot. It has made staff realise how important the data is. I personally will be working twice as hard to bring out new updates and optimizations over this year.

We are lucky the crash happened when it did, it brought to light that the backup wasn't fully working. If it had happened a few months later, we would be looking at much worse results. But I can say to you now, with my hand on my heart, this won't happen again. Of course, we can't stop hard drive fails and other crashes, but as long as we keep a very close eye on the backups, Torn City will be fine for years to come :-)

Thanks.

Good call on the hunting, keeps things more equal and fair.

And indeed, a lot got solved the past few days, we can at least be happy with that and look forward to better times.

Cheesy, but awesome job ched. Unlike others I didn't loose all that much. I simply CANNOT wait untill the updates, as Torncity just seems to be getting better and better every day.

One day i'll put a sweet signature here.

uhhh, that's nice and all, but you have compensated me for anything yet.

Where is my Ranch? Where did my last donator pack go? Where is my $60,000,000 I had in the bank?

What about the education course I was almost finished with that completely restarted?

We are donating money to your site and it took a data crash of this magnitude to make 'the staff realise how important the data is'?

Good to see that things are slowly starting to get sorted out. I think you can figure a proper way through the compensation thing. I will keep on playing anyway

I'm still kind of amazed and shocked that a professional hoster runs a machine on raid 0, especially for a 24/7 service as TC is. Well, this shouldn't critique the Admins a bit but these are just my thoughts about that matter >_>

My friends joined before the crash, but their accounts were deleted. Now they have to start all over... Is there any way there ppl under month old could be "revived'?

I think not crediting the hunting is a bad idea. A fair ammount of stats are sacrificed to build that and it deserves to be compensated. Oh yes, and I'm glad I only lost a paltry $8 million...

"All donator issues have been sorted and users credited. I will continue to check them daily if any of the new players are late creating an issue for their lost donator packs."

do we need to ask for the lost donator packs ? as in report ? i first understood it will be done automatically. that moment is still in the future ? for instance i wasn't compensated for my DP ... should i do something about it, or just wait some more ?

I also realise a small amount of people did not get their houses back, I apologise for this. All of these are side effects of the script which credited properties back.

So what are you going to do for the "small amount of people" that are still down a house???? Like me! I'm still $50mil short of having my palace back. The "compensation" is hardly going to be compensation when it'll only cover (I hope) my lost money in the first place. I don't consider this compensation, but re-imbursement of earned money!!!!


I feel I've been patient, but that's not going to help me. I realise there's thousands of players, but currently, all I care about is me! TC is running, some people are already reaping the benefits of this crash, whilst I'm building up anger and frustration at the lack of support offered to me!

Please someone do something!
