Unless downtime is planned, there is never a known time for when the game server will be back online.
You can follow our Twitter account for live information regarding downtime. If there are no tweets regarding any on-going downtime, the server is awaiting a restart from a member of restart staff.
Staff on IRC and Forums will not be able to provide an time for when the game will be back online.
This server status reteives the data from our database, should the case be that there has been no activity for the past 2 minutes - the status will assume that the server is experiencing problems. After 3 minutes, the status will be updated to assume that the server is offline and is waiting for a restart.
If downtime is over 90 minutes, any accounts with active membership will be given an extension of at least 45 minutes every half an hour. This will depend on whether the server is offline during an external server status check. Please note that the following may not apply to planned downtime - if this is the case, then it will be noted.
