[War3] USEast - Status of Clans 9/29

General Discussion
1 2 3 6 Next
Hi Chieftains, Shamans and Grunts,

We have discovered that the old style database that the clan system was stored in has corrupted itself and the migration tool skipped a portion of records. The old database was split into two files, one that has a list of the clans, and index into the other that has the clan data.

Luckily it looks like only the first is corrupted and we are working on a creating a tool that can work only on the second file without the first and recover required data.

We ask you to be patient and we hope to have this sorted by early next week. In the short term, we have turned off the clan service and will roll back any clan changes that have happened since the migration plus relink accounts that have lost their clan tag.

Classic Games
what about euro clans?
Thanks Mark. I'm sure these updates will benefit the WC3 community in the long run. Thanks for posting and keeping the community up to date, I know there is a lot of discontent to say the least.

NOD, I'm sure your clan will follow the line of all of the other realms.
Can you please clarify if the ladder is meant to be reset or not? rankings out of sorts as well.
These pretzels are making me thirsty.

Why some clans are back and other not?
Why do you not put the Backups in place in the meanwhile?
Retarded comments for days
Just nice to know what is happening. Transparency helps the community.

Pretty sure they changed some basic components in the server files which prevents them from doing so. They probably had a code copy their clan database from a format to another format.

And they lack the backup of the server files?

Greetings Adventurers and Commanders,

On Thursday September 28th, Diablo 2 on USEast, Europe and Asia will be offline for Diablo II character database migration; clan experience will also be degraded for Warcraft III for clan database migration.

No data will be lost or discarded and backups will be performed before migration starts.

Cheers,
Classic

They did say they would make backups before they started ...

mm.
They have no idea what they are doing, plain and simple.. ^^^^^
or maybe you have no idea of what they did
What about promised WC3 updates?

Matchfinding broken for 5+ years
Map pool unchanged for 5+ years
Balance unchanged for 5+ years
Bots running rampant for 5+ years

The Summer has passed
Hey Guys,

We have made great progress with the tool and can now recover the clans such as s4s. We will apply this to all clan db's on monday.

Edit: We have backups but the backups are what ever was saved to the disk at the time. If the old service never saved the data or the wrong data the backups are not very useful.

Can you confirm mark that ALL clans will be back on Monday? Or just the clans you seem to think are more important than others..?

What about all the clans on euro?
Since the thread was started with "[War3] USEast - Status of Clans 9/29"

Can you give us some information about what clans and what servers will actually come back? With the thread named as it is, I'm guessing euro/Northrend is not coming back monday.

ahh just saw your post..
