    Default North America: Extended Hardware Maintenance - Friday 1/13/12

    Greetings!

    Tomorrow, Friday, 1/13 our North American datacenter will undergo an extended maintenance while we do some awesome hardware reconfigurations in our continued efforts to give you the best experience.

    Maintenance start time depends on your shard, select shards will begin at 5AM PST while the remainder will begin at 8AM PST:

    Update @ 1:50PM PDT: Maintenance is complete! Welcome back and have a great weekend - enjoy your new, expanded wargroups

    Update @ 1:15PM PDT: We've had to move the ETA to 2:30PM PST at this point. We are physically moving hardware and doing a number of reconfigurations. Apologies for this extension, we'll do our best to keep you informed - thanks!

    UPDATE 1/13 @ 8:30AM:All North American Shards are offline for the extended maintenance. We apologize that no server broadcasts were made prior to the servers being brought offline. We've adjusted the ETA to 1:00PM PST - continue to look to this thread for updates throughout, thanks!



    Trial shards including the following - Maintenance ETA: 5:00AM - 1PM PST (Updated @ 8:45AM PST)

    Shadefallen
    Sunrest
    Galena
    Belmont
    Dayblind
    Estrael
    Alsbeth
    Freeholme
    Crucia
    Atrophinius
    Faemist

    All North American Shards - Maintenance ETA: 8:00AM - 1PM PST (Updated @ 8:45AM PST)

    We will be providing status updates to let you know when the shards are nearing the end of maintenance and when they become available again for play. Thank you!

    Woot! Sounds like perhaps the server groupings are getting rearranged, due to the new Trial servers, as was done to the EU servers previously.

    Many happy players for the weekend, I think.

    So, a question for you guys:

    Will this also change hardware/population capacities of individual servers, or is it just changing the warfront groupings?
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Some decent information on the shard consolidation here:

    I usually play in the mornings, and so does my guild. Wouldn't 5 AM - 8 AM (or earlier) sound like a better option for an extended maintenance? (esp since you are starting at 5 AM anyways for the trial shards)

    This does not address at all the question of whether server capacities are changing.

    I really don't understand the situation at all. Are all the character names also reserved in the destination server, where they have "reserved a spot" for us??

    No, the "Reserved spot" just means they are recommending you go to that server. If your name isn't available on that server, you can cancel the transfer and try a different server instead, until you find one where your name isn't taken. Unfortunately, if your name is taken on all servers, you're out of luck.

    Not really, it's just a suggestion to help keep communities together some by default.

    Yup, and just as happened with us on the EU servers communities will get destroyed, guilds will fall apart and fragment and lots of folks will lose their toon names because they already are taken.

    I think this server consolidation would have been a good idea.. 4 months ago.

    But now it's just a symptom of populations disappearing more as Rift turns into a korean grindfest like lineage.

    uh so a server consolidation and rearangement of pools and hardware upgrade turns a well done, good thought out, minor grindy mmo into a korean f2p grinder, in your opinion?

    thats really a quite ..."personal" view ...
