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?

They will 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 :)

Servers taking a bit longer than expected due to the volume of events calculated during the down time, maintenance has been extended by up to 2 hours; we hope to have Elgea back in service before then.

I blame the increased time on The Tower. All those troops they are sending out are obviously causing problems...

Actually, it's because it's taking them forever to exterminate all that vermin.

Wow, those updates are great. New units, diplo attack and defence upgrades, battle magic upgrades, and all round quicker responses are great. Has anyone managed to get the new discoveries yet or still sending the units to those spots trying to figure out what we need to send?

I unlocked it (apparently I was already very close already), but I have no idea where to get Gharial Teeth to craft the Zau'Brulk Ritual Spear. Which probably doesn't matter anyway, because I don't have a spearsmith in my capital. The air salt requirement means it's probably only worth it for commanders. Are you working on the elven discovery?

I'm not working on it, but a friend tells me the lead-up to the Elven discovery mentions something about 'righting wrongs long passed.' After the maintenance I had a Tower attack on my city that left an 'obsidian lawstone' in my inventory which seems to outline the rights of slaves under the Order of the Silver Light. Maybe I can trade it to someone? Send me an IGM and we can discuss it.

I could trade with you for Balin's Compass of Pathfinding that I got but it's -150% for orcs. I suppose if you put it in your town all of your kobolds will just march themselves into the Bitter Sea.

The dwarf discoveries are nothing major. The mandable needed for Roetagh's Step Stool just increases your caravan inventory another 500, but takes having over a certain amount of res in a trade hub. The battle mule chariots are interesting though. Still not sure what was going on there... 

Looks great though!

Battle mule chariots and pathfinder compass. Did you get the new message at the fortune teller?
