As your fighters win regional and world titles you level up and earn rewards. The ultimate objective is to hold the world title belt in every division at the same time. Part of the game is socializing with managers from all over the world. Since 1999 our 68,000 registered players have managed nearly 100,000 boxers in more than 2,000,000 boxing matches.

Service interruption this evening
Posted: 7/21/2014 3:23:33 PM

I have to downsize the DB server tonight. As much as I like the new setup I just got the bill...ouch. Can't do that anymore. It's 10X what the game earned last month. After the fights run tonight I'm going to downsize the DB server to try and bring our costs down. With recent code changes performance should still be fine. I just went a little overboard.

Effective Immediately manager BigBoy Inc. has been suspended indefinetly until further notice. After thorough investigation from both Aaron and myself BBI has been found running multiple gyms. Manager NBK is also BBI.
After BBI posted he was going on hiatus and have a nice summer he put his gym on inactive and then activated the gym he had made in feburary (NBK) and put several guys on AD and auto. That led me to look at IP history.
Both NBK and BBI both had same IP address and after doing IP search came up to be BBI's workplace. BTW using different computers and mobile devices and eraseing cookies will not cover your tracks. Went through the same thing
with Kronk a while ago and he is gone for good as well. But we should expect higher standards from our senior
players. Plus NBK has negative 928 credits as well.
This decision did not come easy. BBI and I were good friends and we had a falling out and both of us have seemed to let bygones be bygones since then. Breaking the rules by accident and realizing this and stopping the action
is a slap on the wrist and continue playing. BBI was commish as well,,he knows the rules so blatently breaking the rules and knowing it and trying to cover it up is crossing the line in my book. Yes we all want any little advantage we can get at times so we stretch things but we know how far we can go.
BBI has been playing for over 15 years and is a GREAT manager. He has made many contributions to the game thoughout the years socialy and financialy. He was generous with giving away credits and fighters as well. Many managers benefited from this including myself. I tried to "work" this off by doing odds and commentaries for tournies and blogs as well. I dont want anything for free. This being said NO ONE is above rules especially when
you know you are in the wrong and you continue to abuse it.
My time as commish is almost over so may be my last action...The decision to figure out what to do with his fighters has yet to be made. May be something for myself, Aaron and the next commish to figure out.

Update on recent problems.

Layman's terms.

Ultimately the problem was the equivalent of a failing hard drive scenario. Our database kept crashing because it couldn't access a critical file.

I reconfigured our cloud database server in the hopes that this would move everything to new storage space in Azure. So far that seems to have resolved the problem.

This type of thing is why I stopped hosting my own physical servers and moved everything to the cloud in the first place. This shouldn't have happened but there have been little warning signs that it was coming. Hopefully things will stabilize now.

Recent outage
Posted: 6/24/2014 10:16:43 AM

The recent outage was caused by a "Storage Service Management Partial Service Interruption" at Microsoft's Azure Service. Beyond our control. Sorry guys.

I moved all of our infrastructure into the cloud to take advantage of the "stability" offered by the big boys. The last few weeks they haven't been so reliable and it's frustrating because I'm paying a whack of change for cloud hosting. I may need to start looking at other move.
