"We just experienced one of the biggest database catastrophes of all time in the MMO. What happened? Well, the short story is -- your account name is now Captain Rhubarb. Actually... ALL of our account names are now Captain Rhubarb. Which is good if you like pirates... but really really bad if any of us wants to login to the MMO. All 10,000 accounts created yesterday were lost.
*moment of silence*
BUT look at the bright side... your character was just involved in the first ever database wipe in AE history. (Erm... ok, lets try another angle) Tomorrow at noon, you will be able to re-create your account during Mulligan Day!"
- Captain Rhubarb "wore funny pants" as punishment for Mulligan day.
- All players who re-created their accounts received 10,000 Gold and a commemorative "My name is Captain Rhubarb" tag from Captain Rhubarb on Sunday, June 8, 2008.
