BGA server status

Postby sourisdudesert » 30 April 2018, 14:40

Making a huge gaming service available 24/24 hours, everyday of the year is not an easy task, especially when you consider that a "short" 5 minutes service interruption breaks almost all realtime games in progress ...

Each time there is an incident on BGA, we try to be as transparent as possible, explaining you what happened and what we did to make sure this won't happened. We also cancel all "leaving game" penalties applied because of the incident.

Recently, we decided to go one step further and give you a more detailed view of the status of the BGA server.

Image

This graph shows you, anytime, the number of moves played in the platform. We chose to use number of moves instead of something more "technical" because everyone knows what is a move, and because if the number of moves played on BGA is not decreasing, it means that (almost) all players on BGA can play, so it means that the service is normal (at normal speed).

Do not forget that in case you have difficulties to play on BGA and the service is normal, you can use the following page to see what is wrong :

Enjoy!

P-S: Two other new little features arrived today on BGA :) We will be back to you about that as soon as we are 100% sure they are working properly.

You guys run an amazing service! 2707 online players as I write this, so many great games. On the occassional stretch of 5 minutes (or five hours) where service is sub-optimal, well, stuff happens. Thanks so much for all you do!

the graph is not very helpful since there are no numbers attached to the outline of it and levels that show say 10,000; 20,000; and so on. But, I will agree it is very hard to do a service as well as you do it. Most other online gaming sites take it down for maintenance and that rarely happens here :)

Yes, this graph deserve a legend. But basically this is the number of moves per unit of time, and the unit of time is 1 minute for the most accurate graph (last hour).

What is the significance of the three color zones? Real time, turn based, and tournament moves? some game type division? just pretty colors?

Every server goes down. That's life. This site is amazing and has provided hours and hours of joy. Keep it up!
