    On Tuesday, 01/12/11, beginning at 9:00AM EST the following shards will experience rolling downtimes as we deploy new hardware (in this order):

    • Great Lakes
    • Legends
    • Catskills
    • Siege Perilous
    Downtimes will vary depending on the population of the shard and therefore we cannot provide an ETA; however, higher populations should expect potential downtimes up to 8 hours. Shards will become available once their upgrades are complete and we will work to have all upgrades completed by 6:00PM EST.

    *grins at calendar comment*

    There was a brief update to the original "hardware update" that explained a bit of what happened....this posted just a bit ago.

    Update - 4:15PM EST: During today's updates we discovered a better method improving performance across the shards. However, we do not wish to extend downtime and have made the decision to split this deployment. Updates will be completed for the shards listed below.

    West and the rest of the East Coast shards (and including Oceania) will receive these improvements over the next few days.


    On Tuesday, 01/11/11, beginning at 9:00AM EST the following shards will experience rolling downtimes as we deploy new hardware (in this order):

    •Lake Superior

    •Great Lakes
    •Siege Perilous

    The bolded green shards were completed today. *checks calendar and just grins* The others are listed for updates tomorrow.

    rolling downtimes??? WTH is that?

    LS has rolled down, back up, partial revert and back down again... back up, another partial revert and back down... back up.. just got system message that its going down again!

    is that what they mean by rolling downtime?? feels like we rolled back 14 years to the good ole days of UO when you had to redo skills over and over again because of all the reverts!

    or you had just found that silver katana of vanquishing.. and the server goes down and your hoping to god it doesnt revert back prior to you finding it!

    I understood that as taking one shard at a time. Not all shards will go down 9am, only the first one. When that one is done they will go do the next one and so on...

    You expect a competent and thorough job from someone at Mythic when cut and paste is so easy?

    Seriously? :coco:

    Well there is the part about how they posted "MONDAY the ELEVENTH" Which does not exist, and now posted "TUESDAY the 12th" Another day that does not exist.

    Although I am hoping that is the reason why you are grinning lol.
