Asheron’s Call comes back online after weeks of downtime

After over two weeks of being offline due to a data center move, Asheron’s Call is back in business.

“The Asheron’s Call worlds have reopened!” Turbine announced. “We thank you for your patience during this extended downtime. The game worlds are being hosted at a new data center, and we have resolved the issues that caused this downtime. We will see you in the game! FYI: we have also paid housing rents.”

Not all players are rejoicing at the restoration, however. Some are asking for compensation for the unexpected and extended downtime while others are begging for a data wipe of the dupe-riddled Darktide server.

mmofallout Skyewauker To be fair though, Earthrise was not Asheron’s Call.  I see the correlation, but still.  I could have totally seen that happening with Earthrise.  Speaking of Earthrise, isnt it making a come back in some form?

Skyewauker Wouldn’t be the first time this happened. Back when Earthrise was up and running they went offline for two weeks to relaunch as free to play and just used that time to quietly disappear. I’ve covered a few small MMOs whose servers were taken down to deal with technical issues only to simply shut down.

Madda Can you stop talking in third person Ricky Henderson? Do you really have to roleplay that little character toon in a comment board?

Caffinatedone I don’t know man. It is Darktide. That’s the PVP server for the game and still kind of has a nice little PVP scene.

Skyewauker Yes, a 16 year old game with miniscule player base, no monthly fee and no cash shop run by a struggling Studio.  You have to be a troll to speculate on that shutdown.

Compensation, for wha.. oh wait… Uhh, yes I demand compensation as well, and it should be in the form of the user hosted servers that was discussed months ago. Turbine should get right on that, only fair for all the, er, fractions of a penny’s worth of time I lost over two weeks.

Caffinatedone yeah a cost of 10 dollars for AC1/AC2 and you can play for life sub free. Some gamers today are never happy.

Caffinatedone  It is, sadly, the way of gamers now (not all of course)  It’s one of the reasons why I’ll immediately recommend to new people to turn off any “general” chat in ANY game I play.  The playerbase seems to have devolved to 5 year old demanding children, expecting ‘compensation’ for any slight they can come up with – real or imagined :/.
