Server Problems Addressed

Server Problems Addressed  - Elite: Dangerous -

New Year's day was a rough one for Elite: Dangerous when a server malfunction caused a slew of headache-inducing bugs. Fortunately, developer Frontier moved quickly to address these issues.

Andrew Barlow, Frontier's Online Services rep stated today:

"On January 1st 2015 at 11pm GMT we had an issue with one of our databases. One of our engineers spotted this immediately and removed the database from circulation. This took around 2 hours to complete, test and make live to commanders. In this time, a relatively small number of commanders were affected by failed transactions and small losses in credits. These commanders should have received their refunds, along with a 20% bonus as in previous instances."

He went on to say that players still experiencing problems should contact Frontier here.
