Everything had to be taken offline earlier today, including the official EVE Online website, as gremlins were hard at work inside the machine making login impossible for many:
Again, we must apologize for the unexpected server downtime, at around 19:50, which also brought down our website this time. As before, the exact reasons are unknown at this time, but as no players were able to log in for an extended period, we had no choice but to take the server down. We have all hands on deck monitoring the situation and hopefully there will be no further disruptions, as the server seems to be performing well at the moment.
Things have returned to normal as of this posting.
