Greetings MechWarriors!

A new enemy draws closer to the Inner Sphere. We are taking defensive initiatives to prepare for this onslaught with a series of server-side hardware changes and data migration, which we would like to prepare you for as well:

Wave 1: Monday, March 31st @ 10 PM PDT - April 1st @ 10 AM PST (Est. 12 hours) This is a significant Data Migration. So that Pilots are not left idle throughout this period: We have scheduled our next Public Test to take place during this 12 hour window.

Wave 2: Tuesday, April 1st @ 10 AM PDT - 12 PM PDT (Est 2 hours) Upon completion of the Data Migration, we will be deploying our April 1st patch with a focus on stability fixes.

Wave 3: Friday, April 4th @ 10 AM PDT - 12 PM PDT (Est. 2 hours) This is a minor maintenance to upgrade server hardware.

During these maintenance periods, the game servers will be unavailable. You will not be able to login to the website/game, nor purchase MC until the maintenance is completed. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Active Premium Time will be reimbursed upon completion of the operations.

We are eager to take in your feedback for both the Public Test and Patch on the forums upon the completion of these operations.

Please Click here to Pre-download the Public Test Installer. Stay tuned to the Public Test Forum for more details.

Please check out the Spoiler for more details from Matt Craig on what's going on!

Why is there a tie in to the Clans? Are we testing Clan stuff on the public test server?

They could be hinting at testing clantech balance. It would be amazing for a 12 hour window i could drool over my timberwolf and i'm sure they'd get a lot of solid data and feedback on the direction they are taking with clantech....

But more likely it's just a for funzzies statement.

My thoughts as well. One can hope for yes, though it seems unlikely.

Regardless, I hope this means improved server performance from now on, which can only be good.

Great?

Except, having mentioned the Public Test data, it's still not "updated" at all. Last use (and the current data that's there) was the LAST UI 2.0 test.

I don't think we are. However, it's obvious that the stated down time is to implement things related to the clans. That's quite a downtime; probably the longest I've ever seen.
