Server Issue update - September


We are currently experiencing some server issues resulting in crashes and redeploys. We’ll do our best to keep you informed of what is going on and the progress of fixes! 

For the most up-to-date information on server status, please follow the H&G Server Status Twitter feed - https://twitter.com/hgserverstatus.

Update: September 25th, 2017 – 16:00 CEST
What do we know?
Over the last week we have seen a number of server crashes and general instability in the servers. Some of these issues has been fixed in hotfixes, but not all. Defective RAM blocks has been ruled out.

What are we doing to fix the issue?
We are still eliminating areas that could be the culprit. We have added more debugging tools and we are taking down the main war server (without it crashing) to get a complete memory dump that we can analyze. Meanwhile the game will continue to run on the secondary identical war server with the same version of the game.

Whats is new since the last update?
We have eliminated some sources of error and are now focusing on getting at server memory dump on the operating table for detailed analysis.

How do I know if this affects me?
You may have experienced disconnects, battles ending prematurely if the server crashes and seeing way too much of the “Server Down for Maintenance” screen. 

When can we expect a fix?
We are working as fast as we can on gathering more information while simultaneously standing by to restart any servers that might crash.

What are you going to do to make up for this?
All active Veteran Memberships are paused when servers are offline. All active Ribbon Boosters are completely reset to be used again at your convenience. When we are past this episode and the servers are stable again we promise to make it up to you guys!

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Whats is new since the last update?
We have changed the physical ram blocks on servers to be certain that the reason wasn’t hardware specific.

Letter from the CEO #1

Soldiers,

I thought I would give you an update on what we are working on as I want to keep my promise to keep the players involved in what we do.

I want to remind everyone that I am reading your messages, posts and threads, I know my teammates do too. We realise we need to give you more quality feedback on what we do, and answer your questions better.

We have started a more active participation in forums, Developer Q&A & Why sessions with Reto.RedBjarne our Game Director and other initiatives will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

We decided to lift the NDA on the Reto Reference Regiment in the forum to let you access this interesting content and engage in the conversation.

In the coming weeks we will increase the visibility on what we are working on at very early stages so you can give us more feedback.

I also asked the team to come back to you guys and restate what the game is and what it is not, how it will evolve in the coming months.

I want Heroes & Generals to be a polished, optimized and fun experience for all. This will take time and will require us to focus on some tasks that will not always necessarily be visible to you but that we need to prioritize in order to increase our velocity. We will keep you updated, and we are counting on your support and involvement during this transition to a better service.

I also need our company RETO-MOTO to be more visible in the eyes of the players and of the game industry. We have very talented folks here, who founded IO Interactive, created the Hitman series, others who joined along the way with additional sets of incredible talent. We want to show that we are bigger than Heroes & Generals and share our values and mission as a team.

While respect always needs to be mutual, trust is not something that is given to anyone. We at RETO-MOTO understand that we will need to earn it through our capacity to deliver. While you may have not always seen it, we are a team of dedicated, passionate and talented individuals and we are up for the challenge. We will get it done.

I will continue to update you from time to time on our progress. I know my teammates are looking forward to it as well.

Best
Reto.JM
