    Hello!

    Continuing our initiative to improve server performance, we have what we expect to be our last set of major downtimes planned for this week. Each server will be offline on a separate day. Check the replies to this thread for the latest downtime estimates.

    These will be large downtimes, so you know what that means: free gifts!


    Thank You & Gift

    As a token of our appreciation, we have prepared a gift for all players to be delivered after your server's maintenance is complete.

    Here's what you get IF WE DO come up within your server's expected downtime:
    • Thank You Gift (over $12 in value)
      • 3 Unlocked Wondrous Time Capsules
      • 21 Source Marks
      • 12 Grains of Time
      • 100 Replay Badges
    Here's what you get instead IF WE DO NOT come up within your server's expected downtime:
    • Oops! Thank You Gift (over $29 in value)
      • 4 Unlocked Wondrous Time Capsules
      • 30 Source Marks
      • 16 Grains of Time
      • 150 Replay Badges
      • 20,700 Artifact XP
      • 13,800 Ally Favor
      • 207 Fate Tokens
    Note: the gift can be claimed once per account and will be granted to the active character.

    Note 2: gifts updated - Mepps makes mistakes and posted the wrong gift information from our earlier 24 hour downtime. Please direct all hate mail to my private messages.

    yeah I was wondering that myself...we never got anything did we....seems like they forgot. They can't really promise free gifts for extended downtime when they haven't even granted the ones they promised last time yet.


    FROM NOVEMBER 4TH

    "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."

    Nope we never got any but Mepps did say we would get it this week so I don't know if this is what we'll get or something else.

    Well I'll just say take your time guys, no need to rush the server maintenance, thanks for the hard work and hopefully it all goes smoothly. Haha but seriously thanks Daybreak, looking forward to spending the holidays playing a strengthened DCUO.

    So like others have said, I guess you guys forgot about last week's gift or just decided to bundle it together with this one because you knew you'd be going down again for another 12 hours. Also, why choose reset day to do maintenance on the busiest server?

    Interesting, I'm curious as to why you guys are going with a previous TC vs the current one.. I have everything from both so it doesn't matter too much, but it is a odd decision..

    Anyhow, good luck with everything. :D
