Aww come on guys, the liveliness of the forums during downtime surely makes up for *some* of the inconvenience of having to come into contact with the real world, doesn't it? lol Merry Christmas everybody! :D

No one understands how it works for firefly , in order to run the game they must be run on servers , lots of companys offer their servers for lease to cover costs and helps pay the expense , it seems Amazon has done so for Firefly studios , so therefore , Amazon have control over the actual server operations , in one of their data centers.

As for back up plan, well that would probly cost way more than the revenue generated or income from Stronghold kingdoms , so for all the ones who play it for free and are complaining , think yourself lucky theres players paying enough to keep the game going as it is.

Running a server 24/7 costs alot of money. more than you can imagine.

So if you want a back up plan then buy crowns regularly ^^.

You joined today to share that pearl of wisdom with us, cgd ?

FF ought to have back up capacity on top of their back up capacity for a game like this, and since I spend money I am qualified to speak on the matter.

Thanks for waving your red and green pom poms for FF. You look cute in that cheerleader skirt.

Amazon has reported:
Dec 25, 12:02 PM PST The Elastic Load Balancing Service is operating normally. We have confirmed all load balancers are functioning correctly, and API latencies and error rates for ELB related APIs have returned to normal.

All game worlds should once again be available. Along with Amazon we extend our apologies to all players who were effected by this temporary outage.

Will an apology be adequate compensation? :D
