We will be having a server/infrastructure maintenance on this upcoming Tuesday. Which is roughly less than 24 hours from this topic creation. The purpose of this maintenance is to will begin to use new website. This new codebase will give us needed changes to build of many things we have elaborated in past, including HoP, Guilds Expansions, and MORE! Due to nature of too big of code-changes, it means that we will be running the website on what we call "unknown code" even though we've ran and tested the code many times, it is still unknown how it will respond to thousand users playing and literally hammering it with every function, every corner, every bit of codebase. We do not know how the new codebase will respond to this, it could be flawlessly fluently, or it could be catastrophic, either way we have prepared our self with quite a lot of time and necessary tooling to step-in at anytime. As hard it is to admit this, but it is "expected" that we will somehow mess up somewhere, somehow, in extreme cases we might have to roll back server if a MAJOR flaw is discovered. We'll try our best to minimize the disruption and make things run smoothly, but if anything does happen, we ask you please to be patient and manage your expectations starting this Tuesday.

Date: December 26, 2017
Time: 19:00:00 UTC
Length: 12 Hours (Our best estimation, could be shorter, could be longer)

FAQ

What's new?

This time it's website is being upgraded, they are to be followed with game updates later on. This means the changes is not game-visually nor game-content influence, it is only the website that accommodates new visually changes.

What changes will I see?
In theory, nothing but you'll see a brand new website, however it should perform all existing functions exactly same as before. it is possible something behaves differently, IE a game feature is doing something differently before. You should not worry about what has been changed, as it stands there should be nothing that has changed yet.

What if I found something new?
While there should be nothing new at all, we cannot promise that however. Due to extra-circumstance some things may feel differently than last time, but as long they preform the intended purpose, you should just not mind it. In general, if something doesn't behave as originally, ask yourself: is this change good or bad? If it's good then you don't have to alert us, but if it is bad then you should alert us.

What if something doesn't behave like usually?
You may experience less stutters but you might experience new additional stutters, in this case if you feel the game to be more responsive, you do not have to alert us, but however if you feel more less responsive, you may want to write a topic about this experience so we can look onto it. In general, if something doesn't behave as originally, ask yourself: is this change good or bad? If it's good then you don't have to alert us, but if it is bad then you should alert us.

How can I alert you guys?
