    Greetings!
    We will be bringing all shard offline tomorrow, Wednesday April 18, at 11 am EDT (3pm GMT) for maintenance to improve the login process. This maintenance will replace the regular morning maintenance.
    At this time we anticipate that the shards will be back online no later than 2 pm EDT (6 pm GMT).
    Please be sure to check the Herald for updates regarding this downtime.

    Well given that they appear to only be working with the login process here the only thing that could break would be the login. Easy enough to find out once it goes back online.

    Random account, shard and character log in. Be nice and at least do the BOD run.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Oceania's problems? Whatever it is, it's serious enough that someone pulled the trigger to have all hands on deck versus an automated push.

    Last reply to our Oceania issues was this was the fix to be pushed out. *Fingers crossed that that's all it does*

    Maybe this means the return of character, guild, and faction info on the official UO website.

    Looks like they broke something again. try playing awhile in game, you might experience a suddenly freeze and lag spike.

    It happened to me several times already.

    I do have this too now but never before - but it started a few days before this maintaince - suddenly freeze, but no disconnect, kinda like the lag spikes we all are used to have since 14 years but than a bit different - the char seems to be "stuck" you can turn around on the spot in circles but not move - like you have been hit by a freeze spell something...weired

    Yep that exactly what I experienced this morning. But last night or the past few weeks haven't got these type of issue.

    But then it only hold me like around 2 to 5 seconds each time around every 1-2minutes. Which I feel very uncomfortable with.
