Update 02-06-2018 23:00 CEST / 16:00 CDT – Still crashing the website. Number of Exiles accessing the map is too high and a huge number of United Members haven’t been able to log in. Complete rebuild is required on free map. I can’t have United Members suffer any further downtime.
Update 21-05-2018 18:50 CEST / 11:50 CDT – Ran some tests, and capacity was reached again. I’m going through and manually removing any unneeded pictures relating to tool tips. Once this is done I’ll put up and see if it can sustain. United Members map is still running as normal.
Update 14-05-2018 22:35 CEST / 15:35 CDT – Servers Upgraded. Working on optimising map to prevent any adverse server load – Almost there!
Update 13-05-2018 08:25 CEST / 02:25 CDT- Likely Coordinated DDOS attacking bringing the Website down.
Not only was the website experiencing the unprecedented heavy traffic, but a group decided to perform a DDOS attack. Good job guys. I hope you’ve accomplish what you set out to do. Not only are you screwing with me but the Exiles who still use the map. This will stay down until the web sever upgrade is in place. Conan’s Compass is working as intended for members. Sincerest apologies to everyone else.
This has been a very exciting and equally frustrating time. I have good news and bad news.
This is the second upgrade to the cloud based plan – The third upgrade in total.
Demand on this website has been unprecedented in the last few days and I’ve been ill prepared for it’s surge in popularity. I never expected United Exiles to be as popular as this. It feels like the whole of Conan Exiles player base is using it 24/7. At one point a DDOS attack was considered.
I have already upgraded twice since the release but there’s been so much traffic hosting providers have urged I speak to them to avoid any further downtime.
Downtime is something I want to avoid at every possible cost.
Due to the volume of Exiles visiting the site, we both agreed on a sturdy, robust cloud based plan.
The cloud based plan is a good thing for everyone! Once it’s implemented functionality, speed and usability will increase across the board! Making United Exiles a better place not just for the members, but visitors also.
I put the order in for the plan an hour ago and it will take up to 2 days to complete.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is the page that is causing all the problems (this one) needs to be TEMPORALLY suspended until the new hosting plan is in place. This seems like a really scumbag move and I can honestly relate as to why but it’s priority for me to keep the website up for the current members.
Conan’s Compass should now be unaffected and running as normal.
For the mean time this map needs to stay down until the new hosting plan is in place.
I sincerely apologise.
