    Tomorrow morning during maintenance (September 25th,2013) we will be extending the down time for a few hours to update some outdated hardware on Lake Superior. We do not expect the shard to be down more then 3 hours maximum and expect to have it up and running no later than 9 am.


    Thanks in advance for your patience!

    I'm slightly confused... having moved servers on to cloud based systems, it sems a little weird you then need to "update some outdated hardware on Lake Superior."

    I was having the same thought myself when I needed the link to Account Management and saw the news. What hardware do they still have?

    Sooo, It appears LS hasn't gone down for shard maintenance since this hardware upgrade we had on the 25th.

    Lots of champ spawns in T2A are bugged, when popped they don't spawn any mobs, the few that do spawn mobs, spawn the same type of mobs everytime it's popped (Desert = undead for instance..)

    And people are unable to Xfer from, or too LS atm.

    Sooooo....

    Is everyone just holding their breath and hoping this problem solves itself or are we going to get an official word addressing what's going on with Lake Superior?

    There is not a problem with LS, and stop looking at the man behind the curtain.

    On a side note I tried to xfer from GL to LS last night and couldn't. I could pick any shard except for LS.

    That's because there actually was something wrong with LS and is now being fixed...

    I used a "Shard Shield" token around 6pm US Central time - so 7pm eastern.
