Heya folks,

 

We’re sorry for the ongoing extended instability. We had a critical failure with one of our account service databases. As a result, our login and matchmaking systems are unstable. Our team has been working through the night on fixes in order to bring the game fully back up. Right now we don’t know how long it will take, but we will update you hourly.

 

Thanks for your patience while we work to resolve these issues.

 

UPDATE 11:45 - We've made progress on our internal investigations and believe we may understand the problem!

 

UPDATE 12:51 Services should begin to recover over the next couple of hours. Due to issues with our account system, players on PS4 will be unable to login for an additional period of time. We’re sorry for the extended downtime. We’ll update you in an hour.

 

UPDATE 1:45 - We are starting to see improvements across all platforms. More updates in an hour!

 

UPDATE 3:03 - The storm has settled and everything is back to normal. Get back out there and defeat those Husks!

We're going to be providing as much information as we can as it comes in. We'll keep everyone in the loop.

This isn't ideal for us and we're definitely sorry!

That's been me for the last 12 hours.

Edit: That's been everyone the past 12 hours.

That is a lot of Mist Monsters slain. Good job getting 100%!

Such dedication here! We're working to get everyone back in. Be patient and monitor our social channels. We'll let everyone know when things are back to normal.

You guys rock. Lars would be proud.

Being a DBA myself i just wanted to say thanks to the dev and ops peeps who are burning through monster and pizza at this point. Thanks for all the hard work and I can't wait to see what comes next :)

The people working on these issues are absolute beasts and I plan on hugging every one of them after they've slept for a full day.

and in the SSD storage too!

This is something that will definitely make things feel better. 999 was a little awkward and wasn't nearly enough to build up a decent base before having to go farm again.

This is a huge QOL change!

Seriously a bit more than a 20 minute warning would be nice when some missions can take an hour. So fucking annoyed.

I understand that this wasn't ideal. We want to give as much as a heads up as we can when situations like this happen. Unfortunately, we needed to take the game down for emergency maintenance ASAP as things were getting worse.

This was definitely something that was highly requested and we agreed that it needed to be added. rejoice! We don't have to keep spamming that buy button anymore.

Hey! Those aren't our servers... our flux capacitor just hasn't been turned enough. We're working on bringing everyone back online. Sit tight!

So yeah what's going on?

We've been experiencing some pretty bad server issues last night and into this morning. I promise our team has been working super hard to get this fixed so we can get everyone up and playing again.

I came in here expecting a flame post about the servers being down! You got me.

We are around more than you guys think! /u/AlluraSC don't think we haven't been watching you as well :)

We have a great group of STW players that continue to provide feedback and interact with the community.

We apologize for the ongoing service issues, and are working to stabilize our platform.

We had a critical failure to one of the databases supporting our account service, and as a result our login and matchmaking systems were blocked. We limited account traffic and rolled out changes to address timed-out requests to account service nodes, but these initial fixes were less resilient than we had hoped. We're working on more comprehensive upgrades to fully stabilize the system, but will need to go into emergency maintenance to apply them.

I was both shocked and excited to hear from the Fortnite PvE side. The fact that they actually came by and chatted with me was amazing for a small streamer like myself. It was really something, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to just let us know you care. That means a lot.

No problem! Keep being awesome.

Yes. This is impacting all log in service issues.

We're experiencing issues with our account services that may cause login issues.
