Hey my Ragnorak is missing! I found this note left in my station- "DB table mismatch, sorry pal".

They can make this an event :)

Some spatial-temporal anomaly affecting the fabric of space ripped throughout the universe making objects disappear in mini black holes. Picard out :)

For a company to have this sort of issue and not do a Roll-Back, especially since the game had been up for only a few minutes, is a complete disgrace and betrayal of player trust.

Then to say that the loss of 140,000 player items is not important because it is only a small percentage of total items is just plain stupid. I suppose if the Devs lost their bank account balances, and were told by the bank that it was not important because it was such a small percentage of the bank's total assets, THEN we would hear a lot of DEVs screaming bloody murder.

It is only unimportant when it is not YOUR stuff that goes missing!

CCP should be ashamed of themselves.
And whomever made that decision should be fired on the spot.

If 114,000 items represented less than 1/100th of a percent of the total items in the game and you had to do a server rollback, resetting over 1 million items (1 billion? I don't feel like doing the actual math...) to their state right before DT (or whenever the back up was made) would take INFINITELY more time to do then to have the people who lost items that they actually care about file a report with the GM's. Yes it would take longer for you personally to get your items back but it would not effect the play time of the 30,000 something other players who have to sit at a log in screen and wait to log back in after an already extended down time because you are sad that you lost your little veldspar asteroids and don't feel like filing a petition that would take 5 seconds to fill out and a similarly smaller time to have the GM's give you the item(s) back (When they get to your petition ofc.). You simply can not do a server wide rollback of a game as large as EvE for as small as a reason as there are a couple thousand missing items...

That sounds about right... over 1,600,000,000 (billion) items in their database, unless my math is horribly inaccurate.

The items were sacrificed to appease the volcano god Eyjafjallajökull.

Im not so sure that the report lost quantity is accurate if experience is anything to go by. I lost dozens of items in open orders during that period along with loot and salvage from 2 missions and was kindly told there was nothing in the logs to prove it. Thank you very much CCP. There may be nothing in my logs to warrant renewal of my subscription when it is next due.
