About the delayed maintenance (not a complain)

We are delaying the maintenance for additional 24 hours. With that, the new maintenance time will be 11:00PM PDT, 5/09.

We have a patch ready for today. However, we are working with the devs to implement the arena reward items (now missing, but they were once available from the arena NPC before our last content update) into an alternate NPC. While delaying the maintenance is not welcomed by both us and the FW community, we felt that it would be important to try our best to provide what the community needs, especially when we are taking away the players' playtime by closing the servers for the maintenance.

With this being said, we will try our best to implement the items by EOD and have the patch ready by the tomorrow's maintenance.

That being said, and if the patch was delayed to 05/09 11:00PM PDT, then what is steam downloading? And why that file size?

Side notes:

I stopped playing this game for a few months and reinstalled it like a week ago, fully patched. I'm sure i updated it correctly or else i wouldn't have been able to enter the server.

    If I remember correctly, steam sometimes does it's own "maintenance" on games. Any updating for FW from PWE is done through the patcher, not steam. It could be verifying the files or things like that. If you start your patcher, what client version does it show?

    Before i uninstalled it and temporarily quit, i had it installed on steam for about 1 year and never had that kind of steam "maintenance".

    Neither have I. In fact, I checked steam when I saw your thread and I didn't have any updates, nor any update history for the game. It is possible that some files became corrupt and were replaced, not sure though. It definitely seems like with a file size that big it was content.

    So to ensure that another weekend is spoiled, we do not only rely on "network settings" and maintenance but additionally implement another "near to perfect" patch while several players still have a non functioning launcher/patcher.

    Lets just hope that at least the workarounds for the bugged launcher still work with this patch, after last months experiences i have an extremely bad feeling about this.

    Will at least this time somebody watch the forums when this stuff goes live or will you again wait until the manure hits the air moving device, then sleep it out again for a day or two ?
    Who is this "general failure" and why is he reading my disc ?[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

    Hi guys, we did make some changes to the Steam version. This shouldn't effect your experience at all but if a new player installs through steam they'll get a more recent version. Thanks for your attentiveness!
