    Important: Server migration

    The bloodbowl servers will be down until Monday/Tuesday next week as they migrate the server. http://forum.bloodbowl-game.com/view...php?f=4&t=2533

    As i've mentioned elsewhere the new server will give the opportunity to spectate games :)

    I guess that means that league deadlines will have to be pushed...

    Looks like the existing servers have just crashed too. I was booted in the middle of a game.

    Okay so the beta update it now live, you need to opt-in to the "Beta PyLobby" beta via Steam, the password is cyanide. Allegedly the results will carry over if there are no major bugs (haha!) but you may or may not want to risk playing a DoD or Open game until the final update is properly released.

    The Live spectating is kind of rubbish in that it's not actually live, it dumps you at the start of the match like a replay would.

    It's also worth noting that Loukas has announced that matches which were played but awaiting validation prior to the migration will be lost - they will need to be either replayed or adminned.

    Won't be an issue. I thought it was almost certain that would be the case so made a point of validating all outstanding games on Thursday morning so unless anyone slipped a game in during the few hours between then and the server going down at lunchtime we should be fine.

    You can use the + and - keys to speed and slow the action so you can catch up to the live play. Think I actually prefer it this way as you can walk into a game in progress and get yourself up to speed with whats happened. I wouldn't recommend playing any league matches until it goes live - too high a risk of results getting wiped.

    Soooo, whats the consensus on playing DoD games as a 'beta' groovy? Are we holding off on trying it?

    Latest word I've heard is they are 'relatively confident' they won't have to reset but that doesn't exactly inspire confidence :)

    When do they stop being "relatively confident" and actually say "these are the official servers now, they're up and running"? Is there a deadline for this?

    On the official forums it looks like they might be ready and officially re-opened as early as this afternoon.

    Also there is a thread on the BBTactics forum tracking the bugs through this process.

    The BBtactics boys have really nailed this one it seems. They've done a huge amount of testing and uncovered all sorts of bugs.

    I think you can rephrase that as "Gallows Bait has really nailed this one. Everyone else just happened to be there"

    Apparently they've found a bug with league calendars and results this morning. Loukas is saying that it should be fixed this morning but it would be better if we didn't validate results or forward days until it's sorted. BBtactics has full details.
