    Game Update 118

    All worlds will be taken offline at 5:30AM PT on November 4, 2021, for extended maintenance and Game Update 118. Downtime may last up to 10 hours.

    Beyond the routine, this maintenance will add significant hardware upgrades to the servers, resolve recent marketplace issues with Allies, and of course include GU118.

    GU118 features primarily under-the-hood improvements to server performance, stat scaling adjustments, and bug fixes.

    The full update notes will be posted in the Live Update Notes subforum when available.

    UPDATE: We have encountered several critical issues today with this update. We must extend the downtime estimate by 4 hours. We are now aiming to be back up by 7:30PM PT.

    We are deeply sorry for this extended delay. BUT, when we go long, everyone gets free stuff. We'll share more information about a thank you gift once we're back up and know how long we went over.

    UPDATE: All worlds are now online with a significant issue mitigated by this temporary change:

    In the Live Update Notes subform, you say:

    "Daily Rewards
    • Daily Rewards Son of the Manta gearboxes can now be traded to other characters on the account."
    But what if you already salvaged it because you couldn't give it to any of your other alts?? I mentioned THIS VERY THING in the November survey.

    I'd normally spend up to 10 hours refreshing this page to see when the game finally goes up. Not going to waste my time today though, I have more important things to do. Like refreshing the Extra Life donation page for a shot at an Oceans Boss Event.

    • New On Duty Menu will now show a Timer representing how long the player has been in-queue.
    Why? Instead of a timer how about making the role selection for the queue not only be on the first screen. If a player forgets to select the role(s) they wanted to queue for they have to go back to the start of menu to correct it. Having the role selection be apart of every page of the queue process would be far more useful than a silly timer showing how long we are waiting for the queue to pop.
