UPDATE: EQ2 is back up and SOEmote has launched!
rom the EQ2 Forums:
Important: We will perform maintenance beginning at 6:00 AM Pacific* on August 7, 2012. We expect this maintenance to take approximately 4 hours. This will impact the following services:
- Login for all SOE games will be affected
- Commerce transactions, including purchases on our websites and in-game marketplaces, will be unavailable
- Forums will be read-only
- Account management will be unavailable
- All EverQuest II US Servers will be down from 7:00 AM Pacific* for a Hotfix. The estimated downtime is one hour with an estimated two hour downtime for the US Battleground server.
We apologize for this interruption and will resume all affected services as soon as the maintenance is completed.
Update from the EQ2 Forums:
Hey folks, just a quick update. Our downtime will be going a bit longer than anticipated, however we're working hard to get the servers back up as quick as we can. We'll look at updating you more as more information develops.
Edit: We expect to be up by early afternoon Pacific Time.
From Piestro on EQ2's Facebook:
Our maintenance this morning is going to be longer than anticipated. We expect to be up by early afternoon (Pacific time), and thank you for your patience.
