We will update this thread as we find out more.

UPDATE: 3:41AM PACIFIC TIME

Servers are online! Please feel free to log in. Thanks so much for your patience!

UPDATE: 2:36AM PACIFIC TIME

QA is performing the final tests. If everything goes smoothly, the servers will be online very soon!

Things are going smoothly. We hope for the servers to be ready soon. We'll keep you in the loop regarding progress.

    Servers are UP!

    Hello Everyone,

    We wanted to provide you with an update regarding the downtime. Currently, our developers are working hard to resolve an issue with the Nova Packs. Due to the complexity of the issue, we anticipate that it will take several hours for this issue to be address. We hope to provide you with another update at 9:30PM Pacific Time.

    At this time the specifics regarding how the issue will be resolved are not yet determined. We are looking into multiple solutions and will post an announcement once the specific plan has been determined. Rest assured that we are committed to ensuring that no players lose Zen as a result of this issue.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding while we address this. We appreciate your dedication and hope to have things worked out as soon as possible.

    Pointless honestly. Just remove said items - Economy Will be bouncing back in a few weeks. IT always does. Look at Merc Stats 1 -2 weeks cheap as heck and now back up to almost 5G.... So yeah this is pointless forsaken my dear. Why not just remove it? To many will do chargebacks if their items are gone/destroyed from a rollback YOu know this as does everyone (I did take screenshots of my bags so i know with specific SS's of gear each piece)

    Happy Easter to you too!!!

    If you put the Bunny Suit fash back in game, whatever actions are taken between now and when servers are back up will be forgiven. Otherwise, I have been maliciously plotting that endless series of freakish, unspeakable events of misfortune. I'm just saying.

    Now, let's start a pool; how many pages is this thread gonna get to? I'm gonna go with it breaking 50 or so, but not much more.

    well all i can say is if it is a roll back they might as well get ready to have fw shut down for good lol cause im pretty sure everyone is getting tired of PWs skrew ups, everyone knows they dont care about the economy they just dont want ppl to get +12 so they can keep charging 40$ for 100 star crystals lol

    Very very rude way of dealing with this situation. The players get punished because a PWE employee screws up... "Happy Easter" from 'Perfect' World. Lovely. I want my money back.

    As I said in the other thread- it was YOUR mistake about the price, not ours and we should not be punished because of YOUR mistakes.

    I don't see how this is upsetting the game economy anyways, if anything PWE MADE money because of all of the packs purchased.
    Go ahead and fix yer dang prices on the pack but leave the rest of us alone. I don't want my money back, I don't want to lose the tuff mount I traded for.
    What's done is done.

    This is your fault not ours. Rolling back the server is simply ridicules, unfair, uncalled for and unwarranted.
    Just leave it alone....leave us alone. Change your prices but leave the rest of us alone.

    Honestly, the solution (i think) would be rather simple:

    Create a patch that will give a function to every item that was from the pack.

    What this function will do is first: take all items off of AH, returning them to the seller.

    Then, it will bind all pack content items to the user upon entering the system. Meaning, whoever bought the pack but didn't open them yet, the pack and items will be bound. Whoever sent items to another character in the mail, will be bound to the character that receives them. This will prevent people from buying the items through the AH, so once they are gone (which will be quickly) they are gone, and everything will soon enough stabilize.
