Server downtime typically begins around 10 am PST (1pm EST, 6 pm GMT)
Server downtime typically lasts about 2-3 hours. Forums will be down/unstable during this downtime.
Patch deployment comes after the downtime (approx 1pm PST, 4 pm EST, 9pm GMT)
Patch notes are typically not delivered until the patch deployment phase.
There is no need to make multiple threads about 'when is the patch' and 'why isn't patch deployed at y time instead of x'. This is their (approximate) schedule.
some items to expect in today's patch:
Battlemech visual customization http://mwomercs.com/...zation-phase-1/ which includes camo and paint; some mechs do not yet have full camo functionality
Premium time activation system(for founders) http://mwomercs.com/...eature-roadmap/
******** Betty (partial) some fancy female computer voice for your mech! http://mwomercs.com/...eature-roadmap/
Possible weapon balancing (???) http://mwomercs.com/...apon-balancing/
Note that bug fixes do not count as "upcoming content" so bug fixes are not listed here. Expect some bug fixes to be included in the patch as well, but we'll have to wait and see which fixes have been delivered.
Patch Notes will be available here when they are ready (still a few more hours to go!)
There may be some items in the new patch you do not like or do not agree with. Please be mindful that the Devs who read the forum are not necesarily the ones resposible for changes/new systems; be respectful while posting any disagreements or negative opinions you may have. Negative opinions are allowed: Angry insults and otherwise useless forum rage is not useful feedback, however. Be constructive.
