At 2:00am BST tonight our team is looking to perform hardware-related maintenance affecting all European RIFT servers. The estimated duration of the maintenance is three hours (180 minutes) and should therefore run no longer than until 5:00am BST.
Meanwhile, we will be deploying a hotfix (1.4.1 Hotfix #7), so if your client starts downloading new content in the morning, that’s why!
I’ll be back in the early morning BST with status updates during the downtime.
EDIT: 1:00am GMT: EU region shards are coming down for this maintenance period now!
EDIT: 1:40am GMT: Maintenance is proceeding on schedule.
EDIT: 2:15am GMT: Maintenance is moving into the hardware verification stages at this point. More updates when I get ‘em!
EDIT: 2:35am GMT: Shards are coming back as Locked now, pending final checks.
EDIT: 2:44am GMT: EU Shards are unlocking now! Enjoy.
