Server Downtime for release of Entropia Universe VU 11.5.5

Discussion in 'Next Island' started by Manny, Jan 17, 2011.

  1. Tomorrow our servers will be temporarily made unavailable while we implement Entropia Universe Release 11.5.5

    The servers will be taken down at 2011-01-18 08:00 UTC, and we estimate a downtime of at least 120 minutes.

    REMINDER: In Release 11.5.5, the Entropia Platform includes support for 3-D Secure. When activated, this will increase the security for our participants when placing deposits via payment cards. 3-D Secure is an international security standard set by and used by most VISA and MASTERCARD card issuers. This change will affect ALL deposits using payment cards.

    When 3-D Secure is activated, the first deposit you choose to make after this release has to be made through the Entropia Universe website. In the future, if your card issuer requires 3-D Secure, you will be forwarded to the card issuer's web site for authentication, when placing a deposit via the Entropia Universe website.
    To avoid running into problems with your deposits after this release, please review the information on this page: https://account.entropiauniverse.com/account/3d-secure.

    Note: Release 11.5.5 includes support for 3-D Secure, but due to issues at our payment providers this security standard might not be activated on the same day as the release.
     
  2. thanks for the info Manny...
     
  3. but... there are lots of text in the VU update, and it's all about the 3d secure... i hope this patch will bring more than just that
     
  4. It's MA's usual tactic to only announce what is in a VU after the update, logicaly because they want to test the settings on the live server, as some times things tend to go pear-shaped and they have to pull them back, hence the delays we some times experience.

    Also keep in mind what ND said: that due to the timezone difference they don't actually know what server sync will come online, so they can't know what has been implemented and what not until the servers go live again. It's certainly not perfect, but that's how it works.

    Fingers, toes, and all other bits that can be crossed are crossed that this will also include some bug fixes and planet specific content, otherwise I will be very unhappy to be so twisted up :monkey:

  7. Its probably just a fix for 3d secure.
