We've seen a huge increase in the games popularity due to the launch in Steam. While this is awesome it has highlighted some issues with how our servers handle the larger game population.
We've just patched all the game servers to help improve the performance and reduce the lag and 'slow-down' experienced by some players due to this.
Thanks to everyone who has given the game a try so far and we hope you're all enjoying it! :)
The server will be down for approximately 1 hour tomorrow morning (9th Oct) at 11am BST (6am EST). During this time game update v1.2 will be made live. Full patch notes are available on the forum and will be posted here tomorrow when the update is live.
Sorry if this update doesn't include exact times, we've got the beta for the new game client ready and we plan to put this live tomorrow (1pm EST approx). You'll be able to check out the new changes but we're adding a fall back functionality so if you wish you can still play without trying the new graphics engine.
The game will be down for an extended period of time 3~ hours.
