    Default Downtime Notice: 3:00 AM - 4:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) Monday, July 27th

    UPDATE: The game worlds have reopened! The DDO Store has also reopened. However, DDO players using Steam will be unable to purchase Turbine Points.

    EARLIER: The downtime has been extended until 6:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT). We will keep you updated.

    The DDO Game Servers will be brought down on Monday, July 27th from 3:00 AM - 4:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT) for data center maintenance and to launch Update 27: Trials of the Archons. Patch notes will be available during the downtime. Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

    Additionally, DDO.com will be unavailable between 3:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern (-4 GMT).

    The first part of this work will migrate all of Turbine's billing services to a new data center. After that work is completed, we will be updating the game to release Trials of the Archons. We will keep you updated on Monday.

    Oh come on, what we're seeing on Lamania is not ready to be released.

    I know that hasn't stopped you before but this needs another pass.

    And 1005 of the time, changes have been made to the lam build before release, so 90% of this statement is inapplicable. :P

    I wonder if they changed the Ultimatum's (Tower shield from raid) values in regards to its BDR and AB, right now the small shield from one of the quests there provides more Base Damage Rating and the same Armor Bonus (17).

    heh i bet people will still complain that the game will be down and how they should be compensated lol :P just in before that happens. i'm glad to see this finally happening. maybe this might fix some of the issues the game has had. let's hope so.

    I was excited too when I read "new data centers", until I noticed this:

    It's just billing, not the actual game servers, by the look of it. Unless I'm misunderstanding something.

    Yeah, it's 13 hours maintenance. I'm sure there will be more than just a 1 thing. But, indeed.. it's too early I assume. You are right.

    And another day that I can't play the game.

    I hope the content at least works, I am tired of bosses getting stuck in walls, and doors not opening. Good thing I am not playing spellcaster tho. Would suck to be one right now.

    Business geniuses: update the servers for the part of the game that collects the money, don't update the servers for the part of the game that makes the money.

    I imagine this is just step one in the data-center move. It's smart, actually, to start with billing first. When they move the actual game servers, the game will be down 12-24 hours, bare minimum. At least it was last time, anyways.

    Looks like I'll just sleep in really late on Monday - and hope all goes well that by the time I stumble outta bed everything is hunky-dory again. Benefits of being on on PST time.

    Wait until you see the lag between the billing servers and the data servers / websites.

    It is not like they will be down for 3 days again.... They always learn their lesson and never repeat any mistakes.

    See you Tuesday.

    JUST ONCE, could we get an accurate time window. Guessing over is ALWAYS better than guessing under. No one will be mad if you beat your deadline. Going over is ALWAYS frustrating...
