So that means WP forum will be down too? Should note to players that RO FB page/ Twitter exist? =o

Will the servers still be geographically located in California, USA? Or are we talking something more long-distance here?

Pretty sure they'd still be in California. Would take quite a bit of cash to transfer the entire WarpPortal team along with the servers.

If I recall correctly, this would be the 3rd time they've moved the servers?

I think it's only the second unless there was a move pre 2006 that I don't know about.

I can't believe I'm the first one asking this. Will VIP be extended for those down days?

I can't stand it. It drives me crazy when there are half a page or more of pinned threads especially when they technically don't even belong there. Half of them belong in general annocuments or community events. :|

I don't even understand why we needed an announcement thread for the Rebel update. Are we going to have an announcement thread for the vending limit update and every other missing update, too? Just kind of absurd.

That's what patch notes threads are for.

Who even reads the patch notes for anything other than TeddiePnutButter's posts anymore?

The server reboot and downtime notices got editted in long after this week's patch note thread was posted. Not really going to get peoples' attention that way, so this thread served a legitimate purpose of informing people.

As for the Rebellion update getting its own thread, I presumed the intent of that thread was to get discussions and theorycrafting on the new class started pending a rollout to Sakray for testing. Not exactly on-topic subject material for a patch notes thread, I think.

They got rid of a few so it's not so bad now. There was 9 pins, was getting a little out of hand. It's the whole reason community events aren't pinned here anymore.

 

I think a mention in patch notes, a thread in the announcement section for all games, and an update on the game client about the server move is more than enough, if people can't figure out what is going on after those three measures (and I assume they will announce it in game too right before server goes down, as usual, so technically four) then they are a special kind of stupid. Daylight saving time happens every year... that's all I have to say about that.

 

Rebellion is a little different because feedback, hype, etc.

If people want to theory-craft about a job class, that's what the job class subforums are for. If a Patch Notes section for game updates doesn't serve its purpose nor does a job class section for a job class, then what's the point of having subforums? Might as well remove them all and just have Community Chat for absolutely everything.
