Hello everyone!

Tomorrow we will be doing a quick server restart at 4pm pst for server health. The next actual patch will be next Tuesday, 2-4-14. That said, the restart should be relatively short.

Just a short update, but EU and East Coast servers are up. You should be able to log in on those servers. I will update you when the rest of the servers are back up.

West Coast servers are up! We apologize for the delay.

    Cool thanks for update :). Question sparkie if you don't mind answering, are you guys going to be reinbursing items by any chance this upcoming maintance? It's been 3 weeks and still haven't gotten the item since. I sent a ticket 3 weeks ago and got told it will be in the next maintance but still nothing :(

    Which items? I'm still not entirely caught up on a lot of the reimbursement issues, so if there's a thread or anything, feel free to point me in the right direction. Once I get an answer though, I'll be sure to update you.

    Are you guys going to fix the mount glitch?

    There isn't going to be a patch. Patch will come Tuesday at regularly scheduled maintenance. Although DOD said the fix for that is still TBD, so ti's unlikely to be included in Tuesday's patch.

    This is probably because we didn't have maint on tuesday due to the internet outage at the office. They're probably just having an improv server reset to make sure nothing happens before actual maint on tuesday.

    However, yes, the patch for tuesday won't have bug fixes. It's all mainly localisation, skill tool tips and grammatical error fixes.

    I doubt it... Been waiting myself and I'm guess we'll still have to wait until tuesday. This just should like a system restart to clear the cache and **** that slows a server/computer down from time to time.

    Sparks, just a suggestion for you all to throw around...

    Many moons ago, when a maint was going to happen, there would be system messages a ways out in red text on the servers.
    Also, a system message stating "A new dawn is upon us..." was activated every new day in the servers.

    I know this seems simplistic but it was the small touches that made the player base feel good while logged in-game.

    Restoring the small stuff might make us think the big fixes might be coming. It can't hurt and only encouage some of us to give PWI another chance.

    This is correct.

    Sorry, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of various circumstances beyond our control preventing this. Our intention is to handle our backlog of reimbursements during Tuesday's maintenance.

    That's not client-side, it's server-side. it would not need a patch in the client

    I don't doubt it.. lol That sig is from years ago. I haven't logged on for a real long time. If I remember, my EP had NV gear +10 wep and +7 gear. lol No rebirthing no cards no anything extra special. Heck, I'd bet that I couldn't do half the lower lvl revamped caves now. b:chuckle

    I need to update that to, "You're 50 guildies, 20 mins and finally a tempest away from dead" b:laugh

    Okay but all our bug-fixes, localization changes, etc always come during a patch, not during resets. This is just a reset.

    Warsong, aba, Seat, those are the hard ones now


    @oVenusArmanio: Not true, some fixes came without a patch (it has admittedly been a while though)

    Pet summoning is on GS, mount issue is on GS... would require nothing client-side to fix. (I could name a few more, but I'll not) It would not be unheard of for them to sneak it into a "restart"

    One I can think of off the top of my head is when they accidentally moved the tideborn to where the earthguard are now. no patch client-side, but a server-side edit changed it back to what it was. and when the GS has to go down (for restarts, when it crashes, etc.) is the time when they can make those fixes secretly

    Well, they COULD have. I think the TB fix was done next week, and I don't remember if they patched it at the same time, but it was not needed

    Yup, I thought all the TB fixes came in patches though? I know that they don't always have to do it that way. But they typically bundle them with things and release it as patches. It would be awesome though to get a fix for that issue. b:pleased

    well, I know the switch wasn't, don't know about everything else that was done at that point though

    Well, it's planned to not be long at all and should be up way before NW. That said, I don't want to say for sure, since things happen that are out of our control. But yes, it's just a restart (no patch), so it should go relatively smooth and fast.

    Hi Sparkie, I know you've gotten a lot of questions already, but I was wondering if in this next patch they are going to restore our faction icons? We had our icon updated before the New Horizon's came out and after it did it was back to the old one. We resubmitted our desired icon and have still not seen it come back. Best of luck with this new position! f:grin
