Friday the 13th Server Downtime Today May 29th
Friday the 13th, which released last week has not enjoyed the smoothest of launches. With a barrage of server issues and current multiplayer games only to be found in private match-making, the servers are now going down completely for database fixes. The downtime is expected to start at 12:00 GMT and finish around 15:00 GMT today. Here’s the full statement given from the developers via their Facebook page:
Okay, so the team is working on a fix for servers. These server issues have been causing the Database Login Failure, the level issues where people are not gaining XP, as well as perk assignment issues that have been present from launch. Obviously, this is causing a damper on gameplay for people. We’re looking to change that.
The short of it is; we will be shutting down servers completely at around 7AM EST for maintenance. We expect them to be down until around 10AM EST, though this could be a shorter time. We will post when things are back online. This shutdown will affect ALL THREE PLATFORMS: STEAM, XBOX ONE and PS4.
When servers do come back online; you should no longer see the database login failure, you should see your stats set to where they need to be from gameplay with unlocks and perks and you should able to work with your account as normal.
Bear in mind; this will not affect matchmaking issues that are still present on Xbox One and PS4. This is mainly to remove the server issues for accounts still being locked out and seeing their stats/unlocks not displaying/unlocking correctly.
We hope this is a step in the right direction and are confident in things working well, but please bear with us. We’re working hard at it! Apologies for the inconvenience, but this should stabilize things for users. Our next big goal is matchmaking for PS4 and Xbox One!
Jinkies! You have to give credit to the devs for constant updates, yet at the same time the situation could have been alienated somewhat by simply delaying the game a week. This would of allowed them time to work with Microsoft and gauge server sizes on pre-orders, which were not available before launch.
