Hi all,

There will be a ONE HOUR SCHEDULED DOWNTIME tomorrow 31MAR from 1000 server time (GMT+1) to 1100 server time.

This is to deploy User Interface version 2 (UIv2) onto live and UIv2 will therefore become the default experience for all players. 

There are a couple of minor fixes and patches remaining, some of which will complete today before tomorrow's go-live.  We will, of course, continue to improve the game even after the release.

There will be some additional release notes forthcoming, including further information on browser/device support and functionality.

Best wishes,

SC

If UI2 will now be the officialsetup, will UI1 still be available for a while at least?
Just asking out of curiosity.

Oh dear... guess I'll have to get me a new browser... it's crashed Safari twice today!!! 

It does work well in Chrome, but I need 2 browsers running with 2 accounts. 

Yeah well true it looks great and will be well happy with it if only safari liked it LOL

please say ui1 will still be allowed to be used.... pleasee..
Reason being
 
A- the chat is too artsy on ui2, makes it hard for my person to read what is being said.
B- the town graphics I do not particullary care for,  Why is my town appear to be thrown together? I'm a neat human, not some orc. What fool would have a rickety wood wall around a bunch of buildings slammed together..
C- Chats lag, I often type out a sentence and literaly watch my words appear in the chat box.
 
 
 
There are some good reasons for ui2, which I'm sure people will say behind me after these edit.

I too still find UI1 a more favorable experience as yet.  I echo the sentiments of others regarding the readability/layout of the resource bar, usefulness/presentation of sidebar information, and the navigation sub-options, which seem sparse and don't make any organizational sense to me.  I'd note other shortcomings, but they'd focus on information not well tracked/presented in stock UI1 either.  That'll be something for me to handle, but it is still a loss if UI1 goes down now.

Unless there have been changes in the last 24 hours or so, the UI2 mail system is almost unuseable.

Yeah, the UI2 mail is a bit of a nightmare, but hats off still for all the hard work! Party
