When Tranquility shut down for daily downtime on July 15th, everyone assumed it would be a normal, short downtime, followed by the continuation of the new FozzieSov activities we’ve all come to know and love. Unfortunately… not so much. In a statement released on the EVE Online forums, CCP Falcon has been keeping us all up to speed on the situation as it develops:
As you’re all aware, Tranquility is still offline after today’s scheduled daily downtime.
This is due to an issue with a code deployment today while patching for a few fixes in EVE Online. The issue caused the cluster to fail to start up correctly, and as such, Tranquility is currently unavailable for play for both EVE and DUST.
Our operations and development team are working on this issue as we speak, and we’re hoping to have Tranquility back online for you guys as soon as possible.
Right now, we don’t have an ETA for when the cluster will be back online and accepting connections, but we’ll keep you updated in this thread.
