Greetings All!

We'll be performing extended server maintenance on the 11th of August at 0430 GMT (0030 EST) with a window of approximately 6 hours.  During this time there will be a time stoppage across all of the Elgea server for the duration of the outage.  All pending and current events will be frozen in time when the maintenance begins at 0430 Server Time, and will be processed in the correct order when the servers are brought back online.  Announcements will be made via Twitter and Facebook for updates on server status.

We will be working diligently to bring the servers back up as quickly as possible.  Please note that with the time stoppage there may be discrepancies in time stamps for events effected by maintenance as time stamps will match the process time.

Best,

GM Cerberus

Will this incorporate an update or are we hopelessly optimistic?

Please clarify: If the server goes off at 430 and returns at 930, will something that should have happened at 5:00 complete at 10:00 or will it show as completed at 5:00? I.E. will armies, harvesters etc be where they were at the start of the outage or will they be where they would have progressed to?

Six hours of downtime for "maintenance" is a pretty long time. Our company moved 65 websites from one server to another recently and we weren't down for 6 hours. 

Mind you, I'm not complaining. I do think that players can be cautiously optimistic that this might be more than just "maintenance." Something seems to be being added -- and when you factor in the recent Tower stuff . . .

Well this absolutely catastrophic and unfair . Attaks can hit and you cant dodge them . Sieges can land and nothing you can do to react 
That s christmas for bullies ...

Well. You should have dodged prior to it mate. They gave plenty of notice for this. A few days at least. Sieges dont move that fast. Unless you pissed off your neighbors.

Maintenance now extended by a half hour, we'll be opening the floodgates soon, the server just has to process a few more events for us :)
