New VR failure mode

Now the game says i'm #1, clocks says 17:40 but the dashboard says 15:40. And the boat is obviously two hours back. Anyone else?

I saw your boat stuck at 13:30 when all the others I follow were at 14:10. Then it said 13:40 once, but with the next update Big Bird was back at 13:30.

Yes, now it says 13:30 here too.

Topic was just created in the VR Clubhouse.

I've noticed same thing with PercevalCan92 and LinusVanPelt.

Seems a small number? of boats are being skipped in the calculation, although PercevalCan92 reports he is still moving in the client.

PercevalCan92 probably looking at dead reckoning by the client? If the server time doesn't move, the position can't move either.

Pingi RIP is stuck in time too, at 14:30.

I know that boats are not updated while aground, but this is new.

In fact, something very similar happened to me when the fleet was closest to the Cape Verdes about nine days ago...could it be related to the huge number of players?

Huge number of players would slow down everything all of the time.

Now it's just a single service or load-balancing server crashing.

Few days ago it affected the whole fleet. Now it's partial. Still down most of the time for me, btw.

Finally managed to get a real position fix. Programming set, going to bed now.

It crashed again ~5:30CET for me (same crash yesterday than you, Cvetan).

12hrs of uptime per 24hrs... new Unknown Floating Object mode maybe?

Same here. Down half of the time. Good thing we are mostly past the unstable area.

I'm using neighbor boats for routing. And disregarding the compass display because it shows the command active few hours ago. Just issuing blind commands, hoping they actually work.
