The game servers will be down for a currently undisclosed amount of time to resolve some issues on the server and ensure that they are up to date. We will also be using this time to resolve the connectivity issues that have been occurring recently.

During this time you will not be able to connect to the game but you will still be able to utilize the forums.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and will try to have the server back up as soon as possible!

Hello,

We will be putting the game back online later this morning. Please note that this is a beta phase and doing it now is necessary to prepare for public play testing and the Steam release.

We had to apply server updates, major bug fixes, prepare another cluster for testing of proposed changes, and prepare yet another server for when we go live on Steam. We want to ensure that this is done right the first time, so we can have minimal issues down the road.

Hopefully we can open the servers back up later today (It's currently only 11:21 AM at Nex HQ) so please hold tight! :)

We apologize for the extended downtime, and thank you all for your patience.

Unfortunately we have come across some issues with a couple world servers refusing to start up, so things have been delayed again.

We know it is frustrating for some of you, as it is equally as frustrating for us. We ask for your continued patience on the matter and appreciate your understanding!

Currently we are working to implement some changes that were previously outlined such as combat and skill changes. We are doing some minor testing to resolve some client crashing errors that relate to using various interfaces.

The extended downtime is to ensure that we drop these crashing bugs, to ensure that the servers are ready for testing of the new combat, and to prepare for the impending wipe. This will be a full wipe of the game including skills, items, factions and the likes. However, you will retain the time you put in to your skills. So if you spent around 100 hours on skills, you will get that time back to apply to whatever skills you want when you get in-game post wipe. The wipe will not be when we bring the servers back up so that everyone may use their current gear to help test combat; we have instead opted to wipe shortly before we release the game to Steam.

Further information on changes will be posted in patch notes when the servers go live.

Alas, here we stand again. With high hopes of having a stable server to put up. But the drought hath hit us hard, and the stability of the land is at a loss. We rise as one, searching for the answer to our problems to no avail. Those in Germany have long since been in deep slumber, awaiting the next work day. We await the return of our dear Duplex so that he may proceed with the squishing of bugs and begin his rain dance, so that our drought may end.

We remain with high hopes of tomorrows downpour, so that we may once more have stable lands to tread on. We sleep.

TL;DR - The servers are still down due to stability issues with the combat changes. I'm aware this is repetitive, but there isn't much we can do. It's either we take them down and fix the issue or have more sync issues that make you crash out about 12038912937120943704 times. I personally apologize that this has not gone smoother, but in the long run this will be worth it.
