    Description or notes
    We're going to be performing some service improvement work next Monday.
    This will involve disabling and transferring our internal VPN solution to another provider.

    All services will be affected by this change, but this does not guarantee downtime.
    Services that will be down:
    • Websites
    • Databases
    • VIP System
    Services that may be down, depending on how they handle database loss:
    • All game servers
    Our game servers rely on multiple MySQL databases and use an internal Virtual Private Network to connect to them. As we are disabling this VPN, the servers will lose connection to MySQL which will cause HLStatsX:CE, SouceBans and the VIP system to not function correctly.
    We do not think there will be any downtime of the game servers (as in they will still be playable) but we cannot guarantee this as a result.

    We expect the downtime to last approximately one hour, but it may take less or more time.

    We appreciate your continued support with regards to service improvement work.

    Thank you,
    GameShock Management

    This maintenance has now been completed and all services should be running smoothly shortly.

    If you notice any issues please let us know.

    HLStatsX:CE hasn't been updating/tracking any stats since the servers went back online (including new kills, points, name changes, etc). I don't know if this is just affecting me or eveyone (I play mainly on the NYC 1 and 2 Payload servers).

    Thanks for reporting this. It does appear that HLStats is not updating data. We're working on a fix and hope to have the issue resolved soon!

    This issue should now be resolved. We'll monitor the situation over the next couple of hours to be sure.
