Good evening, Europe!
The EU region shards will be coming down for an update at 1:00am GMT/2:00am BST, 17/5/12. The estimated downtime is ** 30 minutes **.
Patch notes will be updated and have already been posted in English here on the forums.
I'll be back during the downtime with status updates!
* EDIT NOTE: The additional hardware maintenance has been rescheduled and this downtime will be a normal 30-minutes-or-less. *
