If you could not enter into a game of Rocket League over the weekend, you’re not alone. Due to the fact that of some odd technical problems, players were gotten rid of from the game’s servers while it was taken into “upkeep mode” on and off over the last couple of days. It could not have actually come at a more troublesome time either, as the issues triggered a lot of main esports matches to be pressed back, too.
It all began on Thursday, after what appeared to be a routine upkeep upgrade to PsyNet (the network that links players throughout platforms in Rocket League). This upgrade had actually broken something in some way, as the Rocket League devs took to Twitter on Friday to notify players they were examining “server gain access to issues”– then an instant later on players were notified it was all repaired. Other than it wasn’t correctly repaired, since this continued to take place several times on Saturday and Sunday.
Last night though, the on-again off-again servers lastly appeared to be arranged: “Thank you for your perseverance this weekend, and we’re sorry for the downtime,” Psyonix stated in their last tweet, however what failed?
In a message to players on the Rocket League Discord, a designer from Psyonix described that they weren’t a server problem, however a PsyNet problem:
” What that indicates is the game servers are great, however we are having problem with 1) putting players into servers, and 2) other services that call into PsyNet (upgrading XP after a match, Challenges, Item Shop, and so on)
” The upkeep we did on Thursday was a PsyNet upgrade, moving to a brand-new version of MySQL (database management system), this is where we are having issues at the minute”.
It all appears to have actually been fixed now, however regrettably for anybody looking forward to the first week of the Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS), you’ll have to wait till a later date to watch, since the matches have actually been delayed.
” Competitive stability is of the utmost value and we do not desire players and teams playing on unsteady ground,” the designers composed in a post on Reddit. “We’re presently preparing how we’ll reschedule the matches and we ought to have an upgrade for you early next week because regard.”
Due to the disturbance, the Rival Series Play-In brackets have actually been delayed, too– the North American matches are pressed back to February 8th at 2pm EST (7pm GMT), and the European matches are pressed back to February 9th at 1pm CET (12 pm GMT).
In other Rocket League news, I reported recently that the designers are stopping assistance for the game on Mac and Linux since the platforms represent less than 0.3% of the active player base. It’s likewise among the games able to utilize a brand-new add-on for the Xbox Adaptive Controller that lets you play the game with a power wheelchair.
