The EU region shards will be coming down to receive 1.4.1 hotfix #5 overnight at 1:00am GMT, 10/9/11. The estimated downtime is ** 30 minutes **. This is the same update that went to NA earlier today containing a fix for connection issues after selecting a character, which affected multiple players.
Patch notes will be updated (and are already posted on the English forums)!
I’ll be back during the downtime with status updates.
EDIT: 1:00am GMT: EU region shards are coming down for their update now!
EDIT: 1:14am GMT: Shards are returning as Locked, pending final checks.
EDIT: 1:19am GMT: EU shards are unlocking now – enjoy!
