UPDATE: The game worlds have reopened! Thank you for your patience, and we will see you in the game.

The DDO game servers will be brought down at 10:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT) on Thursday, January 21st for a restart. This is being done to enable the DDO Winter Games. Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

Just to ask, is this just a bump on flip a switch, or are other things being 'fixed' at this time as well potentially resulting in a longer downtime window due to unforeseen issues arising from modifications made?

Since he only mentioned a single time rather than a time period, this sounds like a switch flip to me.

At any rate, I look forward to doing the ice games in my spare time...it has been a while.

We need to briefly take down the worlds to enable the Risia Ice Games (to prevent people from getting stuck in the ice. :) ) So, the worlds will be down just long enough for us to enable Risia and Midwinter on all of the servers, then check them out to make sure they are working okay. Probably somewhere in the half hour to hour range, although we'll let you know.

The Risia Ice Games are known to be a major cause of Lag!

The game has been seriously laggy for the past 4 weeks already - PLEASE tell me you have a fix for the Lag that's going to be put in place during the restart?

It hasn't even snowed yet in Eveningstar. Maybe we should wait for snow to run the games... global warming caused by gnomes smelting stuff probably.

Exclamation points are 100% more effective to making a point as opposed to no exclamation points!! And besides, the game world's lag with or without events going on! Adding lag to lag just equals lag! Let it lag, let it lag, let it lag!

The reboot will fix the lag because the memory leaks will get to start all over.

Except that it may not be a real reboot, but just a lockout ( as in : puttin' the server in don't accept new connection from the frontend network and kill anything already connected. [ or said another way : bring down the front end interfaces. ) while they put the relevant flags for ice skating and ice jumping on.

And in that case it won't do anything to the lag.

Sadly, snow causes lag in real life too...

hmm this is just one of the events I just seem to love to miss.

I know some people get some real cool low level items but I just can not seem to like the idea of putting skates on on D&D.

I guess I am a Grinch that hates Risia

Oh, way to put a negative spin on it. :D

It would be nice to hear if this warning applies to crafting Midwinter Festival recipes onto the new lootgen stuff before it is fixed.


Please do not craft onto new randomly-generated items as these particular Cannith Crafted items will be destroyed in an upcoming patch.

Sure, it mentions Cannith Crafting by name, but the Midwinter Festival wasn't ongoing when that warning was issued, and the odds that they actually did any testing are probably in the range of slim and none.
