We’re going to be transitioning Server 13 to a new hardware configuration. We’ve already run a test on this process so you shouldn’t even notice a difference. We anticipate that this will take around two hours of downtime. Don’t worry though we’ll let you know when it’s going down and when it’s back up! The downtime is scheduled for August 31st.
We have previously done this with Server 2 and there was a longer downtime for that transition, but we do not expect to have that issue with this transition.
This is ONLY Server 13! All other servers will be accessible and for Server 13 players if you have an account on another server you can still log in and play. There won’t be any game changes made and you shouldn’t see any performance changes to the servers either. We know this is a long downtime so we’ll have a compensation package once the transition is complete for the Server 13 players.
If everything goes smoothly we will transfer all the servers to this configuration at a later date, and will announce when we’re ready to make that transition.
