    Greetings!

    On Tuesday, 01/10/11, beginning at 9:00AM EST the following shards will experience rolling downtimes as we deploy new hardware (in this order):


    • Atlantic
    • Lake Superior
    • Chesapeake
    • 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.

    We appreciate your patience during this and all other downtimes, thank you.

    Either way there should have been two elevens.

    I'm glad for the upgrade. But they should correct the error.

    Damn. Hardware upgrade on my day off.

    Just glad I am not one of those bitter individuals that would post here about how there is an obvious deficiency in the hardware upgrades designed specifically against me, ranting about how I will now close all of my accounts, they are ruining uo and this is why soon there willl be nobody left playing this game. :)

    I sure hope this upgrade is very very fast.

    Come on you techies....swap that hardware.

    Anyone have a ring or bracelet with +3 FHU (Faster Hardware Upgrade) they can borrow?

    JK!... I'm glad the hardware is getting upgrades :p
