Broadsword are you going to give a State of the U(O)nion ?

With all of the current changes going on and especially the potential stoppage of non essential businesses, can you update us on what effect it will have on the servers ? Will they continue to run unattended if you guys are prevented from going into the office in the future ? I would love to ask the same of companies like Netflix, Amazon , Disney and other internet streaming services, but I"m not a member of their forums. We're all eventually going to be home bound with nothing to do but watch movies and play online games, that is until the Internet drops offline god forbid because it's not deemed as essential. Anyway I"m not playing Chicken Little, I think it's a legit question and it would be cool if you could let us know @Mesanna @Bleak @Kyronix ; Your silence on the forums leads me to believe that you're doing the same thing we're doing which is making sure our families have what we need for the coming weeks/months, but if you could take a minute and let us know what the immediate future holds I"m sure it would appreciated.

Thank you

    Maybe i'm underestimating this but i think people are acting super bat crap crazy.

    Makes me wonder how many guilds made a pact to meet up and run together if this is the start of the end?

    Same way it is handled every week-end/holiday/shut down.  They have a person come in and do daily maint/backup.  It could prob be done from home for all we know.
  • As far as I know the servers are running on aws(Amazon web services).
    So they are remote to any office of BS.
    Just do a traceroute to one of the servers. 4 e. Tracert Atlantic.Owo.Com
    To see servernames.
    Or did I misunderstood the question?

    I don't see why they aren't already working from home.

    Greetings everyone,

        To ensure the safety of the team we are working from home.  This in no way affects the running of UO in any way.  We will be publishing Origin tomorrow as planned and going WW with Publish 108 the following week. 

         We hope everyone stays safe and healthy in the upcoming days!

    Mesanna

    If they woulda allowed working from home sooner, they would still have some of those good peeps they lost who didn't want to move all over the country
