Greetings All!

We'll be taking some time again for server maintenance and content integration on the 6th of September at 0430 UTC (0030 EDT) with a window of approximately 6 hours.  During this time there will be a time stoppage across all of the Elgea server for the duration of the outage.  Events such as movements, attacks, sieges, builds, etc. already taking place will proceed during the downtime. All pending events in the queue will be frozen in time when the maintenance begins at 0430 Server Time, and will be processed in the correct order when the servers are brought back online.  Announcements will be made via Twitter and Facebook for updates on server status. Please note that with the down time there may be discrepancies in time stamps for events effected by maintenance as time stamps will match the process time.

For clarity we have provided a maintenance start time table for multiple time zones:

Weds 6th Sept at 0530 BST (eg 5:30AM in the UK)
Weds 6th Sept at 0430 UTC (eg 4:30AM on the Game Server clock)
Weds 6th Sept at 0030 EDT (eg 12:30AM on the Eastern Seaboard of the USA)
Tues 5th Sept at 2330 CDT (eg 11:30PM in Central USA)
Tues 5th Sept at 2130 PDT (eg 9:30PM Pacific Seaboard USA)

We will be working diligently to bring the servers back up as quickly as possible and are excited to introduce new content to the players of Illyriad.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

So, whats up with that?

Any spoilers for what's coming? If you leave it up to the imaginations running riot in gc/ac right now, then it's going to be a 100% let down no matter how plentiful or how amazing the new content is.

Server went boom?
Sounds Serious. 
Can we use Viagra to get the server back up?

My building queue is stuck completing a Clay Pit upgrade and my diplomats are stuck completing a scout mission. The same with my vans completing a quest.

Yup. I have 50 van loads stuck completing as well. Talk about wasted effort and prestige.

Just had a look at the network traffic to the server from the in-game scripts. Everything seems normal apart from the lack of chat traffic and the trade movement page - that is asking for updates every second. I'd advise switching from your trade movement page to reduce the load on the server while they are trying to fix the problems...

Thanks for the tip. I only have a couple of minutes to send out stuff before work so my fingers are crossed that this will resolve soon.

Given the size and scope of the game I understand the occasional issue :)
Still the best thing out there

Actually, things are not normal in all areas.   Sieges are not functioning, updates to resources (queuing troops or structure builds) are not updating unless you refresh.   When I refresh, I am logged out of the game.

I would caution about doing anything important or that would cause you to lose resources or troops until the Devs let us know what is going on.

And now apparently nothing is actually "reaching" its destination... my troops are also just hovering there saying "completed" but with no result.

Time to head to work and hope when I can log back on all will be well

I have sent a mass mail to my alliance to log off. I figure perhaps having us off will make it easier for them to fix things.

Just to add to the entertainment value, apparently all the alliance tax vans are busily returning the taxes instead of bringing them back.
VTX is having a tax rebate day apparently.

Yea, it's time to log off.   Good luck everyone!  :)

As it says on the login page they are doing some more server maintenance and also applying some patches to the content. What that content is none of us know. If you have a look at the first post in this thread there is a schedule in various time zones of when they expect it to be back up.
