Information coming from a Reddit post from Flak:

This Friday, October 26, we'll be taking the stats database and website offline. Of course, you can continue to play as always. Thank you for your continued support of Unreal Tournament.
While I think most people never used the stats site, it was a nice place to see player info, as well as a serviceable means to see if a person you played with changed aliases. An issue occurred with the player server sometime around the beginning of October, where afterwards match frag info is no longer available and player stat pages are inaccessible. Perhaps Epic thought it was better to kill off the stats site rather than try to fix it. I can't blame them, to be honest.

To my knowledge, this leaves privately run UTStatsDB servers as the alternative for a public stats site. I proposed one in the past, but I don't know if the admins would want to have one set up.

Did anyone else use the stats site?

I guess I'll pull my stats before they are gone. Probably just to see how much time I wasted on this game.

Yeah whenever I search the stats for "YEAAA" and see how many variants i've used and how many hours i've wasted I feel like a bum.

It's been fun though!

Too bad this is going offline, I check on people's stats pretty normally.


Check NOMAD's, UT2004 is this guy's Matrix.

For the sake of over 5000 years logged game years on the UT2k4 stats server. And many more on UT99. Some condolence there please:

If you want to save your playerstats than you have to be quick (they fixed the playerdatabase for the moment): http://ut2004stats.epicgames.com/ind...?stats=players

Giving an update here just to say that it seems like Epic decided not to take down the server. It's still accessible a couple of days after Flak said that it would be turned off.

Here's an archived page from today for proof.

Also, the player issue got fixed. Perhaps Epic was going to shut the servers down because of that, but decided not to after the problem went away?

Also, to my limited knowledge, it appears that the UT99 stats server was taken down 15 years ago, coinciding with the release of UT2003. Does anyone know if Epic began hosting another one since then?

Odd.

Necroing this thread to say that Miauz informed me that around last Tuesday (Dec 4th), the UT stats server was brought down, and hasn't been up since. Perhaps it's dead for good now...

Time to get our own stats server together?

R.I.P. EpicStatServer. * 18. March 2004 _ † 4. Dec. 2018
Thanks to Flak who tried to save it. She also told me that they were not allowed to copie the database and make it open. The management may just decidet to delete the history without any backup. They may have done it now. If anybody has saved it, it would be appreciated when it would made public.

So I downloaded a bit to save a little history. It's not even close to everything, nevertheless a huge number of files. Uncompressed ~20 GB and with zip ~4.08 GB, rar and 7zip are lower, but I used zip for the mac users. The file was compressed with 7zip.
Feel free to do whatever you like with the files and share them. Just give some credits to the work which my Labtop did. =D
https://www.mediafire.com/file/6d5th...erver.zip/file


HTTrack Website Copier/3.49-2 mirror complete in 31 days, 0 hours 52 minutes 1 seconds : 916955 links scanned, 792383 files written (17712681053 bytes overall), 699304 files updated [2418488588 bytes received at 901 bytes/sec], 16609042460 bytes transferred using HTTP compression in 688387 files, ratio 13%, 17.3 requests per connection

(121662 errors, 3038 warnings, 0 messages)

Every "error" is a server because the tracker obviously couldn't start the game. You can take a look at the IP : Ports in the log file.
The newest data is also from the date when I first lanched it, so the newest aren't there.

When you want to find your data the best would be to use your ID and type the URL directly. You can't use the search functions from the pages. But you can sort the players bye ID, or name and than try to find the right page. To open it save the files on your PC and uncompress it (My main PC was needing 30 mins with 6 kernals to compress it.) than go to the "index.html" within the folder and open it local in a browser. (Don't try to move or copie the uncompressed files to another physical medium as it will take some days.)

And in case you don't havethem already, here are many custom-map musik files (2.41 GB):
