    Really bad timing. Middle of the day on mostly day off. And with almost no warning (although that's pretty common).

    Anyone know what they're fixing? Generally feel better about these things if I know why...

    Guess I'll go in the family room and watch TV. See if the kids are taller than the last time I saw them.

    Having over 30 years in the computer/IT industry, I understand the need for db maintenance and the like, however, such short notice is pretty bogus if this not a critical issue. Due to (among other things) the recent release of generals skills, most players had various buffs, mines, quarries and buildings running; having no schedule, many have buffs that are now wasting away or mines that had to be shut down as they would expire during this maintenance and cause potentially dangerous issues with depleted mines and/or buffs (like Wilderwood Resin) which, thanks to the timing, will be utterly wasted in its last 10h as one is unable to change the book ordered. A little planning and communication would have been really nice. 6x Rainbow Bags, a Barazek, and Wilderwood Resin were forced to be shut down on my island, not counting the lost production time on the various buildings.
    “Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.”

    Thank you for the advance notice, ~24 hours was nice. A change log at the time of notice would be useful, although I do look forward to seeing what change are ahead.

    I am hoping they Fix the store. Update things players can purchase. Maybe add "Return to Bandits Nest" using frags to buy it. :]

    Is this hotfix and backup a precursor to something good, like mebbe a Crisis Event?

    As notice goes, this was pretty good. I was not surprised and was able to change some things around to make it so I was not completely unprepared. Rather have this during the day instead of prime playing time, but that sort of timing is what we are used to.
