    So we're experiencing serious packet loss issues over on Catskills. Any other shards feeling this horrible pinch?

    Probably just that hamster that runs the wheel to make it all work. He's goofing off again.

    I was on Pacific with no problems and jumped over to Cats when I saw your post. I ran around for a few minutes with no problem. Client is showing 46ms ping with 0 packet loss. Ran a UOTrace to Cats and it is telling me exactly the same thing the client is, avg about 46-47 ms with 0 packet loss ( I let it poll 50 times) .

    Investigating.

    Update:
    Looks to be an issue with our server host. We hope to have it resolved within a few hours.

    Thanks @Bleak --- appreciate it! Its been a nightmare tonight to play... certain areas of the map were better than most but most were reminiscent of the old 2-step we did back in 1998! No es bueno. ;)

    Aye, Catskills went BLACK, and nary a person was left unaffected.
    As it were, the pirate crew was in earnest battle with that Dread Andros in Despise. As we had him on the ropes, and his minions dispatched...all went BLACK! Ahhhhrrrg!
    Twer, a fowl plot, and our rewards forfited, as it were.

    Thank you @Bleak !!! Unfortunate about the server reset back so many hours, but sometimes it is necessary.
