TGIF! Welcome to this week's Grab Bag :) 

Our monthly newsletter is due later today so if you aren't signed up, there's still time (also, for shame! ;)). You can sign up using this link to get our newsletters right to your inbox.

And just a quick note about account security:

With Mithril currency shared between all game accounts under each individual EA/Origin account, our upcoming official forums will require game account info to access. Logging into the forums on any linked game account will give you access to the entire forum profile under that EA/Origin account. 

Please make sure to protect your game and master account info. Someone using your account to misbehave on the forums won't be an acceptable excuse from action, and be aware: some violations on the forums will result in action taken against your game account! So protect your account!!

When will the official forums be live? Soon. Very soon!

Live Server Maintenance - Ywain

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Jan 09 11:36 -0500 GMT
Update 12:40 PM EST / 5:40 PM GMT: Ywain is once again open and available to all players!

The Ywain server will be coming down today (11:00 AM EST / 4:00 PM GMT) to perform some additional maintenance to address the in-game delays with gameplay and chat.

Servers are expected back up within 2 hours.

We also want to provide a bit more context for these in-game delays that many players are experiencing. All of our servers and services are hosted on the cloud and are affected by the recent software updates required to mitigate the Meltdown vulnerability. We heavily rely on these cloud services to run the game as smoothly as possible.

For more information on the recently discovered CPU vulnerability issues, please check out this article.

Unfortunately, the New Frontiers region on the Ywain server was only temporarily fixed by our configuration change last Friday. We started noticing more delays on Saturday afternoon and have been trying some behind-the-scenes fixes that don't involve downtime since then; none of which have fully resolved the issues. Fortunately, all other servers and services were fixed by that Friday downtime and are still looking good and performing better than ever.

With this downtime today, we will be trying a more robust configuration change to Ywain that we are hopeful will fix its remaining issues as well. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Live Server Maintenance - Ywain

Posted by John Thornhill | 2018 Jan 05 11:40 -0500 GMT
Update 1:04 PM EST / 5:04 PM GMT: Ywain is back online and available to all players. Thank you for your patience!

The Ywain server will be coming down today (11:00 AM EST / 4:00 PM GMT) to perform maintenance intended to address some in-game delays with gameplay and chat.

Servers are expected back up within 4 hours.

We've noticed some poorer performance than normal in New Frontiers and want to make a configuration change to our server hosting to try and address it prior to the weekend.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we perform this downtime.
