    With severe weather and damage in Virginia, the UO Team updated the official UO Facebook page and we pass this along to the UO community at Stratics:

    We will continue to update news and include our hopes that everyone is safe and staying cool in the Eastern US heat!

    Hi guys

    The team is working hard to fix the issues after the storm last night. We are working to deploy a fix for the Classic client asap, with the enhanced client soon after that.

    Please bear with us, and thank you for your patience.

    Regards

    I was in the cavern of the discarded when I lost conn, and now I've been connecting to UO servers for the pass ten minutes... What are the odds that I survived? not good im sure.

    That doesnt bother me, at this point the only thing i care about is a pet vs pet turney I wanta be a part of at 9 pm on legends... If I dont make it, my llama might turn purple!

    I take it it's only the log-in server affected? I have been unable to log in since 10.30 this morning (10 hours ago) so i guess all my characters will lose loyalty yet again?, and due to something outside my control.

    Yep, Shard list looks complete to me. Patch server seems to be ok, too.
    (The shards themselves are not addressed over DNS and thus should remain unaffected as long as they are up and connected to the net.)

    Hello Rowland,

    My question to you is this, If there was a storm last night, dont EA have any DR locations so that the servers remain up??? Or at least have you concider moving the server into a Colo facility that might have backup generators???

    Patched, but still cant connect to uo.

    I'm getting worried. 3 hours until the pet vs pet tourny on legends...

    I spent the most of my uo time during the last month looking, taming, and training llamas for this event.

    Please remain focused and resolve this login issue, because I wanta win this pet event!

    I followed most of the steps, but I didn't run as admin and I had to uncheck 'Read Only' under attributes in the properties.

    The fix is has not taken, and is proving extremely difficult to resolve without power to our facilities. I'll keep you informed.

    No wonder the con was so bad...... Took 5 trys and 10 minutes to get in and then was sooo lagged.................... Btw Hamsters need clean litter, changed regularly no smell should develope.... btw they tend to sleep alot durring the day. they are nocturnal critters....
