At the end of October, 2021, we reported that Roblox servers had gone down. It’s not unusual for a game to have downtime, either scheduled or unexpected, but the popular online game went down and stayed down. For three. Whole. Days.
Roblox’s lengthy downtime
The Roblox downtime occurred between October 29th and November 1st, a true Halloween horror. Understandably, Roblox’s millions of fans were devastated at having to spend so long without checking into their favorite shooters like Arsenal, popular survival-horror Piggy or top sim Welcome to Bloxberg (other games are available).
Rumors of Roblox giving players 5k Robux
As such, a rumor started circulating that players would all receive a legitimate payout of 5,000 Robux from the Roblox Corporation by way of an apology for the lengthy downtime. 5,000 Robux is an awful lot, and is worth around $50/£50 in real money, so would be an incredible gift to receive for the small inconvenience.
So is Roblox giving away 5k Robux?
In short, no. We’re not sure where this rumor started, but, sadly, it’s not true. As much as we wish it was, it would cost the Roblox Corporation an incredible amount of money to pay out this much to every player on the database. Especially at a time when they are likely to have taken a hit due to the downtime anyway. Instead, they just fixed the problem as soon as they could, and got us all back online.
