Hey there!

It looks like this is a bug the team is working to address. It only happens in rare cases but it's still not good for anyone. Please submit a ticket so the support team can work with you to get this straightened out.

Hey folks,

We're bringing Trove for the PS4 offline for additional maintenance on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 8AM PDT (3PM GMT). This is strictly maintenance on underlying systems and there is no patch with this downtime.

Downtime is expected to be under 2 hours, but if we need more time, or come back online early, we'll update this post.

Thanks

I've posted on this topic here. We don't have any plans currently to create two different Challenge windows that fill up every hour of the day. If we do have more changes to announce as we continue developing new updates we'll get the word out, for sure.

They weren't. Players who take specific steps to trigger an exploit were punished accordingly. We won't discuss game or forum account bans in a public forum. If anyone was banned or suspended for any reason they can email appeals@trionworlds.com.

If you emailed appeals@trionworlds.com they will reply as soon as possible. Closing down the thread as we cannot address account bans in the forums.

If you played at all after Beta you're just logged into the wrong email address in Glyph. We've never wiped account progress so that is very literally the only way to explain your account being level 1. Even if you're confident I am mistaken, please try logging into Glyph with an alternate email address and we'll see if that works.

If you're still having trouble finding the right account reach out to our support team by submitting a ticket.

Hi Everyone

I recognize the frustration about downtime - I play a lot of games too, and know the feeling - especially where theres downtime over multiple days.

This is a good question. Not all downtime will result in changes to the actual game itself (we call this the client - what you play on the PS4 - or the Trove servers that the client connects to).

Here are a few examples of the many types of maintenance we might need to do:
  • Update or modify the hardware or supporting hardware that the Trove servers run on (add memory, upgrade storage, etc)
  • Update or modify the the software/OS that the Trove servers run on (just like you get Windows Updates on your computers, we need to update the OS or other software the Trove servers run on)
  • Database maintenance
  • Updates to the servers that support all Trion games (authentication, commerce, etc)
  • Security updates/patches to the servers or supporting infrastructure for Trove
  • Coordinated downtime with our ISP or other service providers
  • Modifications to the Trion network - router, firewall, etc.
  • Many others...
Sometimes the above affects all platforms. Sometimes it's specific to a platform. In the case of downtime specific to a single platform, it wouldn't make sense to bring all platforms.

This is another good question, and is a good follow-up to the question above.
Believe me: We want to minimize downtime. Most importantly, players cant play Trove (of course). On top of that they may not come back afterwards, we lose out on potential revenue, and its alot of work for us! As such we take downtime seriously.
And so does Fasti - he called out several days ago asking for the downtime to be rolled into this mornings downtime or delayed until Thursday as he foresaw the same concerns you all do (Gems, etc).

Anytime we need to schedule downtime, theres a core group that discusses the specifics. We weigh what we are doing in the downtime and the various risks. Some of the things we take into consideration:
  1. The length of each task, and the buffer required
  2. The risk of each item
  3. How long it takes to validate the item
  4. Can the items be done in parallel or consecutive to other tasks?
  5. The stakeholders required to be on hand to complete the task
  6. The stakeholders required to be on hand if something goes wrong (these can be out of our control, we work with external teams too!)
  7. The potential downtime to correct the issue should something go wrong, and how that would affect our peak times for players online (Friday updates are rare for a reason - they are very stressful)
  8. Any many more...

When planning the downtime for tomorrow - given the above - we decided to keep it separate from the updates this morning.

I know this dosent give specifics, but hopefully it gives you some insight into the decision making process for scheduling downtime (and to reassure you we do discuss things like this!)

Thanks!
