Fractured MMO

Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy. 
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.

ESO: SCALEBREAKER DLC GAME PACK

The Scalebreaker DLC game pack brings two new Season of the Dragon dungeons, expanding upon the events of both Wrathstone and Elsweyr. The Dragons are free from the Halls of Colossus, and now you must deal with the fallout of their release. While these stories are part of the year-long saga, you can enjoy both without having completed either of the year’s earlier content—enjoy!
Lair of Maarselok
For centuries, Maarselok slept deep in the mountains between Elsweyr and Grahtwood. However, upon the opening of the Halls of Colossus, this monstrous Dragon has awoken, and now threatens to spread his corruption into the domain of the Wood Elves. Only with the help of the Warlock Carindon and the forest spirit Selene can you defeat this terrifying new Dragon!

Hunt the great Dragon Maarselok!
Moongrave Fane
Hidden within a fallen Khajiiti temple, the vampires of the Hollowfang prepare to perform a terrible ritual. Joined by the former Dragonguard Grundwulf, they wish to drain the blood from a captured Dragon! You and your team must fight your way into the fallen ruin and put a stop to their plan before it’s too late.
Both dungeons can be attempted in Normal and Veteran difficulties, with a Veteran Hard Mode option available for those looking for a challenge. Brave delvers can discover new rewards up for grabs in both dungeons, too, including new item sets, Achievements, collectibles, and more.
PURCHASE DETAILS
The Scalebreaker DLC game pack is free for all ESO Plus members and available for purchase for 1,500 crowns from the in-game Crown Store (listed under DLC).

5.28b to Inspired Angel for Archon / Moros / Rev losses in AZ

Recommended Posts

Aveno and Lumpy both suffered disconnects 2 days in a row, resulting in the loss of a Archon / Moros / Rev and a Loki.

 

We have a direct low-sec tonight (day of this post)

 

I transferred 5.28b to Inspired to pickup the ships and I will help him bring them into AZ.

 

Both Aveno and Lumpy have put in petitions to see about getting the losses replaced.

 

Both had only 1-2 clients disconnect, while their internet stayed active and other clients stayed online.

Just an non-update

 

AFAIK no one has heard back from CCP on these petitions yet

 

however since they had other clients stay online and their internet was obviously working fine, I suspect that we will get these replaced.

I had the Moros replaced this morning.  They took out the insurance payout of 700 some odd million and put a moros with all destroyed fittings (not all fittings, just the destroyed ones) back on the boat. 

 

Since I need another Moros, I will pay whatever we had to pay for that moros back to the SRP.

 

Actually, I need 2, but I'll figure that out later.

That's what we need to hear!!!

 

Let's make sure Inspired & Lumpy both have your guidance in this matter :)

Although I have not confirmed it 100%, GM Karl said he would replace my ship one time.  Just so happen that it is the petition that contained the loki perhaps.  I'll have to check.

Here is my first petition from Urso:

 

We were running sites in our C5 WH when my carrier toon (this one) crashed.  My other 2 accounts on the SAME computer did not crash so it was not an internet thing.  When I tried to log back on, it wouldn't let me for a couple of minutes.  It rejected the attempt.  I finally got back in, but by then we had already lost our Loki and shortly afterwards lost one of our Moros's.  This was not due to anything I did but due strictly to the client crashing.  Is there any way to recover these 2 ships?   Kill: DovannaG (Loki) 

Kill: Zero Amnesty (Moros) 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Here is my add on message:

Figured I would add this.  This is the first time this has ever happened to me in the years I've played.  I don't remember ever having a client crash.  I got with my ISP and we could find no hickups.  I'm running their gaming service so the bandwidth is way beyond what I'm using.  At the time this happened, I had 3 eve clients and mumble running.  (all 3 very light clients) and nothing else. I don't run any TSR's of any kind other than hardware driver items.  

 

Here was my petition from Zero:


Urso Sick's client crashed and because of that, DovannaG and I both lost ships while running a C5 site.  She was the anchor and because she crashed, the Loki  Kill: DovannaG (Loki) immediately died.  Because of this, we had no way to CC the rest and subsequently I died  Kill: Zero Amnesty (Moros) before we could put everything back together.  Can you please replace our ships since it was due to a client crash?

 

Thanks

thank you aveno,

update for everyone:

 

Since avenos moros and lumpy's initial loki loss were replaced by ccp, this reimbursement  will denull the moros brought in to replace avenos loss.

 

Aveno stated he wanted the xtra moros, so he bought the replacement (at cost)  from the srp isk already spent. The isk (2.15bil) was paid to me.. and i will be holding this until we hear a final word from ccp.

if there is no replacement of said ships from the second day of disconnectivity issues, i will be using these funds to buy and bring in the moduals that we lost from the revelation, archon, and the second loki, minus the items that droped from these ships that i have in my hanger vault to hold for until we have a reply.

 

on my petition i did recieve a word back from ccp "rusty" saying that no he cant do this. blah blah blah.....

 

Well, unacceptable, I am escalating this matter and going to use the tactic of avenos wording, from above post adding nerd speak into the ratio..... isp provider and also the mumble client being up as well during the disconnection.

i think this is a really good way of showing that we did our homework and that we are not just pulling there leg to get them to replace all our stuff.

i think to employ common sense into them to apeal to the nerd in them by speaking nerdy may just work.

haha

anyhow.. just wrote this quickly to keep everyone informed.

Here was the GM's response:

 

Greetings,
 
Thank you for contacting the Customer Support Team.
 
We apologize for the delayed response but we are currently seeing a heavy load of incoming petitions which results in a slower response time than normally. We appreciate your patience.
 
After investigation, we have now returned the ship to your hangar at Amarr VIII (Oris) - Emperor Family Academy. Only items destroyed with the ship will be returned. We are sorry but we can not reimburse items that are lost as these should be picked up from the wreck. We have a very strict reimbursement policy that we must follow. You can find a copy of our policy here. 
 
 
Please note that our reimbursement policy requires that we verify that every ship we reimburse was lost due to a server issue or bug. This was not the case in this instance. However, due to the circumstances we can make a one-time exception to return your ship. This in no way guarantees future reimbursement for similar issues, as we must investigate every petition individually and make our decision based on the facts available. Thank you for your understanding.
 
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact us again.
 
Best regards,
GM Rosemary

this is the petition i wrote for escalation:

 

At the time this happened, my squad leader DovannaG had 3 eve clients, and a mumble client running at the same time. I am not the one that had the connectivity problem and am only a direct result of HIS 2 out of 3 clients crashing.

DovannaG & SNAGLD YPMUL character clients crashed and because of that,  apollospartan,  DovannaG & SNAGLD YPMUL all lost ships while running the C5 site.  DovannaG, he was the anchor in an archon and because he crashed my revelation died without any logistics to keep him alive. while we scrambled to fix his droped clients issue, the archon went down and then the loki in this short time frame.

 The investigation of connectivity has to be on his accounts to verify everything. i am a secondary effect of his clients crashing.
i'd like to point out his mumble client and 1 of his other clients
 silvering mist were still running while this was happening showing his isp provided service had no issues and it was an eve online issue.

Kill: apollospartan (Revelation)

Can you please replace our ships since it was due to a client crash?

this being the same circumstances of multiple toons crashing while others and mumble server staying online with no problem leads me to believe that there might just be an issue with connectivity from recent patches...
 i did investigate further and some of your patch notes also state there was a problem with connectivity and this patch is to help that.
i think that maybe the fix is not working and may nee a little more attention.
patch notes reads as follows:

 Patch notes for EVE Online: Odyssey 1.1.6
Released on Wednesday, September 18th 2013
FIXES

Graphics
    A number of crashes in the graphics engine have been resolved.

 Patch notes for EVE Online: Odyssey 1.1.4
Released on Wednesday, September 11th 2013
FIXES

Miscellaneous

    Fixed several small issues that were causing client crashes after the deployment of Odyssey 1.1.

well to no avail...

here is ccp's response:

Greetings, I am GM Cid

Thank you for your reply. As my colleague stated, no server side issues were detected during the time that the loss took place. Had there been a server side issue, giving chance of reimbursement, the ships would have been replaced immediately.

Posting replies from Customer Support to players that had server issues verified and their ships replaced is not going to do your case much good. The circumstances for the situation can be and most likely were quite different from the situation you were in when the loss took place.

Had there been any disconnection issues plaguing the server, we have ways of noticing this and we would have been able to verify the source of the issue for what it was and react accordingly.

Fixes that were applied in previous patch notes have been tested and should be working, but if you believe you experienced a disconnection/client crash due to these issues, I would recommend that you file a bug report.

Your loss being the result of disconnection of another player does not make you subject to reimbursement as that loss will have to be verified as a server side issue, before we can take your loss into account. Please contact your friend as I believe his ticket has been replied to.

In most cases the socket closing issue is the result of player connection and how his ISP routes to the EVE servers. These are things we sadly have no control over and as such we cannot offer reimbursement on those grounds.

I am sorry for your loss and I hope you will recover from it quickly.

Best regards,
GM Cid

so this i guess is all up to lumpy and him negotiating with ccp. to prove it was not an issue with lumpies machines.

well as we still awaiting a response to lumpies petition..  i have decided to buy the UN-dropped moduals to replace them for the cap-ships that were lost.

As you all know i made compence to bring the capitals in and distribute them to those appropriate.

I figure that i am in jita right now i will bring the moduals in to make the ships complete.

 

now if ccp decides to be nice and actually replace the ships we lost (from lumpies disconnect) then we will have extra ships in the hole and we will either buy the ships off of srp-fund as aveno did with the moros...thereby replacing the isk where it needs be..

or i propose that we will just have them as alliance ships.
