    Default EU downtime 15:30-16:30 GM 4th November 2015

    So, EU shards just got an announcement that they'd be coming down in 30 minutes for a 60 minute downtime, i.e. 15:30 - 16:30 GMT.

    Would it be too much to expect that there'd be an entry in the News & Announcement or Shard Status forums to say why and/or give us more than 30 minutes notice?

    Default Reason for the sudden EU downtime?

    As the title says, does anyone know the reason for this sudden downtime?

    It's not just EU .. NA shards got the same thing. No explanation, especially since they said it'd be delayed til tomorrow at least.

    the new raid/instance is up... so for all (NA & Europe) at the same time, to not inflict with world first achieves I assume..

    So nobody gets an advantage over others...

    I read somewhere the big patch was delayed until tomorrow?

    So I guess the message about the 60 min downtime was prepared before the date was change and someone forgot do disable it. Or will there be maintenance both today and tomorrow?

    If this was going to be the T3 raid release I'd expect downtime to be longer than an hour, that community would have announced it and that patch notes would be up.

    This feels like something else...

    That's probably not why it was delayed...

    Assuming preparations for the instance/raid.. And the quest for 7 signets, maybe just maintenance.. The usual scheduled stuff + the preps for the new raid

    @Artewig.. didn't know about the delay, but I assume the usual update is run anyways.. and that is always 15:30 gmt for NA

    As for the delay... better a delay than (the usually needed) hotfix within 24hrs

    The usual scheduled time for EU cluster patching / maintenance is at 01:00 GMT on a Thursday morning... this is at 15:30 on a Wednesday afternoon.

    Looks like someone forgot to delete the downtime messaging they had prepped ahead of time. Sorry about the confusion!
