    As i understood, they have heavy problems with database because of the heritage items and some bugs with references. Probably, the developers need a "frozen" DB to fix the issues. That's why the server is down all the time. IMO

    Technically the server is not down all the time. It's been switching from Online for testing and Offline. Judging from the activity, I believe they're trying a lot of different solutions and building/ applying them to test online.

    Yes there are backups. It's not as simple as rolling straight back from whats been said

    Pretty sure they said that to reset from an unaffected backup would undo too much player time. Like a month or more.

    Not once per month on backups. They retain backups for as long as a month.

    However the issue has apparently been going on longer than a month...
