We're now underway - I'll be here all evening with any updates, if all goes as planned though you won't hear from me until we bring the shards back online. Thanks for your patience during this maintenance - we'll make it as quick as possible!

We're still in the middle of the maintenance at this point - while we wait for a more accurate ETA we're letting the team continue to keep their heads down, we'll provide another update in 1 hour from now with more details.
Thanks again for your patience - and we apologize for this extended outage, we'll be here to keep you informed!

We're still wrapping up the maintenance and getting all the hardware back in order - once the shards are ready to be verified we'll provide an accurate ETA.
Until then we'll provide any additional details if necessary - thanks for the continued cooperation

Hey guys - no new info at this time, this was a rather extensive operation with a lot of moving parts. We're taking our time and doing it right - we'll provide another update in an hour or less!

We continue to move towards our end goal, but still no ETA while we work on finalizing the maintenance. We'll share additional details as soon as we get to the next step - apologies this is slower going than we had originally planned, we're doing our best to wrap it up!
Once again - you can expect the next update in an hour or less, thanks.

Our team is still hard at work trying to get the servers up and running. Again, apologies as we still can't give an ETA on when the servers will be back, but we will keep you informed on an hourly basis.
Thank you all for the great deal of patience and understanding you've shown so far, it's really appreciated.
Thank you all for your patience. We are doing a final check on the Shards before unlocking them and hope to get you online within the hour.

Cutting it close but still within the hour - welcome back, all English and French shards are back online!
German shards are just a few minutes behind while we get some of the new hardware up and running still - thanks once more for everyone's patience during this extended outage, it's not often we encounter significant delays such as this and we will do our best to provide more accurate ETA's when possible.
Welcome back - have fun

And German shards have joined the rest of the EU shards - we're back online!
Mobile App may remain offline for a bit longer while we continue to wrap up everything behind the scenes on our end - but thanks again for your patience and cooperation, have fun and to those of you in Europe - have a wonderful May Day!
