This just in:
[i]Shortly after the worlds came back online today, we determined that the hotfix had not properly corrected the issues that it was designed to fix. We unfortunately have to take the servers back down to complete the fix.[/i]The original message can be found here.
The servers will be taken down at 9AM PST/12PM EST tomorrow (July 29) for approximately 2 hours. We considered applying the fix this afternoon, but decided that the risk of impacting players during prime time was too great.
I apologize for the extended downtime, we (Turbine and Microsoft) are taking steps to make sure that this does not happen in the future.
