[Downtime] Addressing Various Issues - November 23rd 6:00 am PT

Greetings Adventurers,

We will be holding downtime 2021-11-23T14:00:00Z (in your local timezone) for all regions for approximately 3 hours (~180 minutes) to implement the following fixes:

  • Reduced occurrences of time skipping days ahead instantly on a world
  • Fixed a bug where some crowded combat situations would lead to players appearing to be frozen and other state could not be conveyed to a user due to excessive bandwidth consumption.
  • Fixed a rare server crash

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

With today maintenance we also made one additional change:

Housing Taxes Temporarily Reduced:
To address the recent issue regarding duplications and exploits, we have temporarily lowered the weekly housing taxes by 90% until our monthly December update. We want to say thank you and we are sorry to our players who have been impacted by the recent issues. Company income from home ownership has been also raised to prevent loss of income during this period. This is a portion of additional compensation we will be rolling out in future patches.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Housing Taxes Restored to Normal:

To compensate players who owned houses and were negatively impacted by server clock issues players were experiencing in November, we temporarily lowered the weekly housing taxes by 90%. As communicated above, the 90% reduction on housing taxes took effect from Nov 23 until our monthly December update. With our Dec update housing taxes will be returned to their normal levels. We want to say thank you and we are sorry again to our players who were impacted by the recent issues.

Who raises taxes before the holidays? What kind of Scrooge are we?

To add to the spirit of the holidays, we will keep the housing tax discount live through December.

Happy Holidays!
