Lord of the Rings Online’s servers struggle while Weatherstock returns

If you’ve been adventuring — or trying to, at least — in Middle-earth this week, you may be quite aware that certain Lord of the Rings Online servers have been on the fritz. Arkenstone, Brandywine, Crickhollow, Evernight, and Gladden all have been taken down multiple times by Standing Stone Games over the past two days for “server environment issues,” but as of this morning, it looks as though all of the game worlds have reopened.

Hopefully these problems won’t cast a dark shadow over this weekend because it’s time for the greatest annual player concert series: Weatherstock XII! Saturday’s party consists of dozens of player bands performing at the summit of Weathertop on the Landroval server for adoring crowds. You can check out the schedule below:

Just tried to log into Evernight, and it’s closed according to the launcher.

I often wish that MMORPGs would just concentrate on running the game instead of having lots of silly little mini-games masquerading as festival events. That’s just me, of course, I’m sure others find them hugely entertaining even after the umpteenth year.

Hmm. I wonder what kind of ball and string budget they have for server maintenance. Don’t forget who we are dealing with here.

Bummer that no lotro for me last night, but that just means swtor instead!

This affected both SSG games, some sort of cascading hardware issue. Definitely not just LOTRO patch related. I glad I was not in the middle of a permadeath run in DDO. I heard a rumor that someone may have accidentally fed the server hamsters spicy food.

Speaking purely as a HamsterOS layman, I always thought that spicy food would make the hamsters run faster.

Last evening the whole system was down. Worlds, Launcher, Website. Everything was down for a number of hours.

Performance since the last major patch has been absolute garbage, led by multiple sever desync issues in all instanced content and during a lot of open world content.

Had gotten to the point of being unplayable in the hours just before the complete shutdown. I hope they found the problem(s) and fixed.
