We’ve had to take the game servers offline just now in response to a crash. There’s a chance that they’ll be back online later this evening, but it’s more likely they won’t be back online until tomorrow.
We’ll keep you updated in this thread. Apologies for the inconvenience!
Why is it going to take so long to fix this time?
The devs normally manage to get the servers back online within a couple of hours when something like this happens. But this time, we’re in the middle of making significant changes to the server environment. And we need to finish this before we can apply the fix and bring the servers back online.
Will my game be affected?
No, your game won’t be affected. It will resume from the same state as it was before the servers were turned off.
Update: the game servers were brought back online along with the new patch (Wed July 3rd).
