    Default Downtime Notice: Saturday, March 9th

    UPDATE 10:00 AM Eastern: The game worlds have reopened! Any issues seen during the brief window we were up earlier should be resolved.

    UPDATE 3/9/2019 5:43 am eastern: We are bringing back down the game worlds while we troubleshoot an issue with characters not receiving their proper account unlocks.

    The DDO Game Servers and http://myaccount.standingstonegames.com will be offline for maintenance on Wednesday, March 6th from 2:00 AM to 12:00 AM Eastern (-5 GMT). Thanks for your patience, and we'll see you back in the game soon!

    Note: We apologize for the lengthy downtime, but this downtime is due to some significant data center work being done. We hope to reopen the worlds early, but that will depend on how things go throughout the day on Wednesday.

    Just to confirm, are you sure it's 12:00 AM (midnight) and not 12:00 PM (noon). 22 hours is a very large downtime.

    During the LOTRO stream, Cordovan did say that the expected downtime would be 22 hours, so I think he really means midnight.

    Yes, sorry. This is due to hardware work being done.

    I dont think the expansion is going to be released in 14 days - I think you mean the pre-sale will start in March - from the state of the preview on the Tiefling/Iconic Bard and Inquisitor tree - I would think for it to be ready in 2 weeks would be a miracle.

    But - hey miracles happen - do you have a verifiable source for this claim?

    You have your times wrong. The way you have it phrased, the downtime will be ending two hours before it starts. It’s like saying “The basketball game will run from 6:00 to 4:00.” Wednesday starts at 12AM. 2AM is two hours later.

    I think you mean:

    If they said 12 hours and it ran 15, people would be irate. If they say 22 and it runs 18, people will be overjoyed.

    Tell 'em 22 hours, but then deliver in 18. It's a proven methodology.

    "When asked if the developers hate the players, as they make so many challenging jumping puzzles, their response was that they have what they consider a “… normal amount of contempt for the players.” This is good. A dungeon master should always nurse a healthy contempt for his or her players."

    It will not, no. The first U41.4 preview has already ended, in fact, and there will not be another as soon as next week. Even if we were to open the second preview next week the preview server would be affected by this maintenence and would need to be offline during the same time as the live servers.

    There are still 2 hours of potential game time between midnight and 2am. She'll never find out.
