    Server Maintenance: August 6th, 12AM PDT

    An unusual occurence in the GW2 world - downtime for maintenance!

    https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/foru...UTC-09-01-CEST

    We will be conducting maintenance on the game on Tuesday, August 6th, starting at 12:01 AM PDT (07:01 UTC / 09:01 CEST). This maintenance period will last up to 6 hours.

    The following systems will be down and will not be available for the duration of the maintenance:

    • Guild Wars 2 : players will be logged out of the game starting at 12:01 AM PDT (07:01 UTC / 09:01 CEST) and during the maintenance, players will not be able to login to play.
    • The Gem Store, Currency Exchange, and Trading Post
    • Buy.GuildWars2.com
    • Register.GuildWars2.com
    • The Guild Wars 2 Forums will be closed to logins

    We appreciate your patience and understanding and hope that you find something fun to do while we conduct this maintenance. : -)

    Find it pretty amazing the amount of complaints people have when this seems to be one of the first maintenance downtimes worth mentioning. Oh you have to sleep for 6 hours once a year or so when we don't charge for the game? Try a weeks worth of maint during the same year while another company charges you and gives no extra days for the downtime. Not saying you're complaining but it's kinda funny watching people freak out when it could be much worse especially when the game is b2p and throws content at us at the rate it does.

    If they had chosen to do this on, say, a Friday night, I would've questioned Anet's judgement a little. But yeah, people getting all up in arms about a six hour maintenance on a Monday night is just silly. Go read a book or something, we've had uninterrupted service like 90% of the time.

    I'm waiting for all of it to come back online... ^^ Have been playing in the late hours on purpose because I knew it would be offline all morning anyway. It should be back online in like 15 minutes if it's exactly 6 hours of maintenance. (Which I don't expect xD)

    Actually I think we still have 2+ hours. 12:01 AM PDT for 6 hours. It's now almost 4AM PDT.

    Ew they did start at 9 instead of 7 xD (EU). Well that blows. In that case I'll do something else :') Too bad it's around day for us (01 PM here).

    Edit; Actually I'm confused. If it lasts only 3 hours it should've been online an hour ago. I assumed 6 hours since everyone was screaming that, but this counts only for Gandara. Anet, wtf are you doing.

    Nope. Because I'm in =) Which means it was only 4:30 hours in total for my server.

    It doesn't matter if it says 'up to' now because they said to 3 hours at first. You can't expect from me to know what they say now when they change overnight. That's just mean :'(
