    Default Official: Maintenance Work on ALL Servers 6/18/19 10:30 AM - 3 PM ET

    Our co-lo, where the Simutronics servers are located, needs to do some work on the electrical line leading to our area. We will need to shut down all of the servers while they do their work starting at 10:30 AM ET. We will do additional preventative server maintenance during the outage. This should take 4-5 hours. We anticipate restarting around 3 PM ET.

    This means everything will be closed: games, website, forums, wiki, store.

    Anytime you shut down a computer that has been running for years without a restart, there is a chance that it will not restart properly. If that happens, the affected server will be slower restarting than the rest while we work on it. We will update you if that occurs and delays any of the key parts returning to service.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    "In order to make your gaming experience more realistic, during the planned maintenance we have implemented a Confluence-like random 1-4 second movement round-time system in all wilderness areas. This round-time can be negated by riding on a horse."

    "Due to player demand for more realism, and in order to preserve the realism of a new beginning after the server restart, we have stripped all players of all belongings and wiped out all bank accounts and made everyone level 0. No need to worry, everyone's FAME is still intact, as we realize that this is a critically important feature of Gemstone IV."

    It would be WILD if this was how GSIV finally ended

    Like it just never comes back after the restart

    Not with a bang, but with a whimper

    Damn, I was going to reactivate my account and buy thousands of dollars worth of SimuCoins at exactly this time window. Oh well, guess I'll spend it on ESO crowns instead.

    If you ever thought GS was going to go out with a bang... Well... Don't know what to tell you.
