We want to inform you that Singularity has been put in the VIP mode for internal testing purposes. A huge thanks to everyone who participated in our previous testing, and we are looking forward to the content release next week!
We will let everyone know before the next time the testing environment is made available again.
i know sisi is still CCP but…why they taking it away,they have buckingham,multiplicity,chaos,duaity… this is alot of places for ccp to do their internal testing,we would like to know what really happened so ccp decided to disable player access to sisi for good?
I doubt it is ‘for good’. I believe they are simply giving notice that Singularity is being intentionally put in this mode to head off the threads and reports they’d get if they make the change unannounced and letting us know they’ll tell us when they switch it back on so we know we don’t have to keep checking it to find out.
All test servers are probably not created equal. They may run on different hardware or access/emulate a different more limited subset of features as compared to Sisi. It seems logical to assume there is a good reason to do their testing on Sisi to provide the incentive to put it in VIP mode even if the ‘why’ of it is privileged information.
Like they care about salt (see HyperNet). But I bet it’s better to trow anything that is happening good or bad a PA and see if it will stick rather than understanding simple thing told by CCP over and over by at least half of year.
The other non-production servers have their own setups, that don’t necessarily closely match the TQ environment. SiSi does that, and as with any well structured IT environment, SiSi is where final tests and QA assessments are conducted, prior to release into production.
So it isn’t as simple as just, use another test environment.
From CCP’s standpoint - it’s their server for the development and improvement of Tranquility. Anyone who plays on Singularity should know there are no assurances to public uptime.
As for the players; why not make this a good time to take a break from Singularity?
Hop onto TQ and head to Lowsec and get some real pvp chills - might give a bit of appreciation for PVP skill in the risk environment of TQ.
Hope Sisi is looked well after - thanks to Dopamine for updates to the Singularity community.
