The Rebellion

UOAC TheRebellion Event

Brothers and sisters!

The Usurper Astaroth, the self-affirmed Demon King of An Corp, has declared that he will address the public for the first time since he carved his false throne from the remains of the Creator nearly a century ago. This is an opportune time to deliver a crucial blow to his oppressive regime! That bastard Astaroth sits on his throne atop of Castle Blackthorne, not a worry in the world as we scrape out a meager living underneath his rule. No more!

I am Elimorel, a Grand Inquisitor with the Sightless Legion, one of the last remaining paladin orders still struggling against the evil in this land. The Revolutionary Army stands ready to strike, but we need more able bodies! Fellow believers of the Light, take up arms with us so that we may drive evil from this land!

WHEN:
Saturday, March 7th, 2015 12 PM PST

Rumor has it that the Society of Skulls, those vile Dread Lords loyal to Astaroth, will be lurking about in the crowd. Who knows what will be waiting for us. There is a good chance that blood will spilled this day. Come prepared to defend yourself!

Security Updates & Server Migration!

Greetings Everyone!

We're in the process of setting up a new server with a different host that will be more capable of handling the network attacks we've been seeing since launch (aside from our own internal code issues that have largely been resolved). We will also have better logging to further see where the attacks are coming from.

We expect to move fairly soon but we're waiting on getting some final tweaks and then I'll make an announcement and update DNS entries after I've made the change over and post the new IP for players to connect to immediately. This shouldn't result in longer than 5 minutes of downtime while I move over files.

I just want everyone to know we're actively working against any issues we've faced (external and internal) to deliver you guys the best server we can. We truly apologize for all of the inconveniences the DDOSes, crashes and other issues have caused everyone. We feel the pain and frustration just as much. On top of the new server (with better specs) We have also taken the liberty of upgrading our DDoS protection. Looking forward to seeing everyone on our new server!

 

The new server will be located in Chicago with the following specifications:

E3-1271v3:

  • Intel Xeon E3-1271v3 processor (four physical 4.0ghz cores on QPI + hyperthreading)
  • 32 GB DDR3-1600 ECC memory
  • 240 GB SSD and 2TB, 7200 RPM SATA hard drive
