The official Runes of Magic launch is closer than ever and a lot of things are still in the pipeline this week. Here's an overview what you have to endure and can look forward to:
Improvement of download bandwidth
In anticipation of hundreds and thousands of new users, we are increasing the bandwidth of our patch servers to relieve a number of smaller issues like connectivity issues and slow download speeds.
Server downtime for patching
Tomorrow on Tuesday, 17 March 2009, at app. 6am GMT / 7:00h CET, the servers will be taken down for a small patch and update. We reckon that this might take no longer than the usual 3 hours.
Server downtime for launch
To prepare the launch properly, we will be taking down the Runes of Magic servers on Wednesday, 18 March 2009, 10am GMT / 11:00h CET.
We will do extensive maintenance and a lot of polishing to the website and the forums as well. So these will be shutting down at the same time and will be back when the servers are online.
We would like to thank all of you for your continued support and hope to see you again when Runes of Magic goes live on Thursday, 19 March 2009! (Oh... and note: There will be no character wipe and you all get a complete TP reset and debt wipe.)
