During this week DCUO developers released status update on the MegaServer and discussed the problem they ran into and the game’s immediate future (Players will have an early access to Game Update 4: Enemies Unite on the Test Server).
At the same time, SOE announced huge maintenance on all games and services on Tuesday, July 12. I put two and two together and came up with an idea – the Test Server goes live on 12 July. Do you agree? And will you give another chance to DCUO with the MegaServer?
Wanted to give everyone a quick status update on the MegaServer initiative. We have made progress on the one issue that was blocking us from getting our PC test server live. My goal was to launch the Test Server this week. We ran into a problem with migration of the Group/League chat channels from the live service and had to postpone the launch for a couple of days. I know everyone is as anxious to get this going as we are, but I want it to work without problems. So, hang in there and you should see it this week.
For those of you who are interested in getting an early look at Game Update 4: Enemies Unite, we are planning on putting Update 4 on the Test Server so that players can test the new content. Look for that soon, after we have the MegaServer up and running.
Beginning July 12, 2011 at 1:00 a.m. US Pacific Time, SOE is performing maintenance on all games and services. During this maintenance, our forums, websites and games will also be unavailable. The estimated downtime for the maintenance is 8 hours.
