Hello everyone.


As you might've noticed the server has been down for a few hours now, the same occured yesterday. This is because the server has been facing a DDoS attack for which our current hosting was not prepared. 

We've been discussing with our hosting possible solutions to mitigate the attack and we've come down to a couple of options, however, to deploy the possibilities we will be needing a couple of days, which means the server will be down for at least 2-3 days. 


We're extremely sorry for this and we will be looking forward to get this over with asap so we can all enjoy the fun of DarkRO again.


Also, we will take this opportunity to update the server and have it ready by the time it comes back, the upcoming update will be a huge thing, bringing a lot of changes, we've also been working on making a few changes to standarize the updates proccess from now on, reducing the amount of possible bugs as much as possible for big updates, however, as this is the first time we'll be implementing this, we will be expecting a few bugs (The update is rather big: Client Files and Server files were restructured).

We will also be planning a few things to compensate our players for the downtime, so stay tuned to have a blast once the server comes back on!


In the meantime, we invite you to browse our forums, check out the <a href="http://www.dark-ro.n...-and-feedbacks/">Ideas and Feedback section</a> and support/comment some of the posted ideas or simply suggest a new one! We're always looking for ways to make the server more fun!

Or join us @ <a href="https://www.facebook...l">Facebook</a>


All status updates will be posted on this topic



--- Update


Things are taking a bit longer than I'd have hoped for and expected. 

Right now we're evaluating the possibility of setting up a temporary open test server where you guys will be able to play with some of the new revamped items to give us your feedback and not grow utterly bored until this is settled.

As of right now I expect the official server to be back in about three days.



---- Update 2 (Tuesday 9th)


Hello guys,

I know you've all been eager to get the server back up and so have we. 

We're sorting out a few issues but I expect the server to be back tomorrow (or the day after in worst case scenario)

Sometime today the forums will be backed up and while they will continue to work, they will eventually get rolled back (I'll prolly make a post right before we set a rollback point)

I'll try my best to make the forums rollback as minimum as possible (SERVER WILL -SHOULD- NOT BE ROLLED BACK)


---- Update 3 (Wednesday 10th 16.42)


Hello guys.

We're setting a backup/rollback point from this moment on everything web-based (Forums, Website, CP, Wiki, etc)

From this moment on, we do expect the forums/website to be unreachable at some point. This is completely normal and expected. 

Depending on how things go, we might be able to set a lower rollback point for the forums, but be aware that its not likely to occur. 


---- Update 5 (Update 4 got deleted)

We will start rolling the updates client side soon, which means you'll need to run the Updater.

While the server's down for the count, is it fine to discuss *some* pending changes publicly? (eg. LHZ4) It'll be useful for us to gain some insight from the community's opinion on the upcoming content while we're waiting.

thanks sir. these people wont be here spending their minutes browsing and commenting, if they didn't enjoy DarkRO. Some people have lots of complain, but they are still here... it's because they had fun.

Surprise us with these new updates. we're looking forward to it. more power!
