Beginning at 2:00 AM PST on Thursday, December 10, 2009, all SOE game servers will be offline for hardware maintenance. This includes all of our MMOs as well as TCGs. We expect the downtime to last around 4 hours.
For the EQII servers this downtime will extend to 10am PST.
We need to hotfix in the morning to clear up some bugs and to turn on Frostfell. However we cannot hotfix immediately after the maintenance.
This downtime will be for all servers so that we can turn on Frostfell and the hotfixes at the same time for everyone. We realize that this will mean downtime during peak hours for some and we apologize for the inconvenience this presents.
Thank you for your patience and we'll update this thread with any new information.
We apologize for this interruption and will resume all affected services as soon as the maintenance is completed.
