    Greetings!

    At 11:00AM EST Atlantic will be brought offline to receive additional hardware updates. We anticipate the shard will be back online before 3:00PM EST.

    Please also be aware that on Wednesday, February 2nd Great Lakes, Legends, Catskills, and Siege Perilous will have rolling downtimes to receive the same updates, we will provide more details concerning this downtime in a separate announcement tomorrow - thank you.

    Maybe at the same time you could remember that your note saying Europa is down and "stay tuned to the Herald for the latest news and information." needs correcting, since Europa has been up for FOUR DAYS and you apparently have not noticed...

    Got to the Herald for 'the latest news and information', eh?

    Why bother to explain something in one message, when you can put it off until 'tomorrow'!

    Yay, procrastination! :cheerleader:

    If atlantic gets the same upgrades sonoma did, here's what you can look forward to:

    * occasional timeouts whereas there were none for the prior 1.5 yrs
    * occasional ping increases from 26-28 to 200+ (a factor of nearly 10x) where there were no such ping increases for the past 1.5 yrs
    * shard wide lag and freezes, effecting every single player regardless what part of the US or ISP you use .... yet monsters are able to move JUST FINE ***

    lucky atlantic!!! upgrades for you!!! :)


    *** if the server continues rolling on when players cannot move it is obviously their network or isp. why their paid professionals havent noticed, diagnosed, and at least started a plan of action is, well, baffling.

    Key word there is "professional." Not sure Mythic understands the concept, TBH.
