The NA region shards will be coming down for the 1.5 Hotfix #10 update tomorrow morning, 10/26/11, at 8:00am PDT. The estimated downtime is ** 30 minutes **.
Patch notes will be updated!
I’ll be back in the morning with status updates during the downtime.
8:00am PDT: NA shards are coming down for this update now!
EDIT: 8:19am PDT: Well, after a fire drill (just a drill, thankfully, but an actual building alarm!) caused a brief clearing of our ops team from their building, we’re back with the shards locked and being checked out!
EDIT: 8:25am PDT: NA shards are unlocking now!
