PvP and Activities Maintenance: November 1, 2017

We're doing some work on the PvP and Activities backend servers later today, November 1, 2017. We will make an in-game announcement at the beginning and end of the maintenance period, which we anticipate will last about one hour. Here's what we have planned:

Structured PvP

  • We'll be disabling joining all SPvP arenas for about an hour.
  • If you are in a match you won't be kicked out, but you'll need to wait until the maintenance is complete to start a new match.
  • You will see in-game messaging about this and we'll also send an all-clear which will indicate the arenas are re-enabled.

Activities, such as Clock Tower, Southsun Survival, etc .

  • If you attempt to join an activity during an approximately 10-minute span of the maintenance period, you will not be able to do so but will eventually see a "tournament timeout" message.
  • If you're already in an activity when this 10-minute period begins, you will be able to stay in it. However, you'll be redirected out of the activity system at the end of that round.

Custom Arenas

  • During an approximately 10-minute span of the maintenance period, you will see no matches in the PvP Game Browser.
  • Once the brief time-out is over, the list will repopulate and you'll be free to jump into an arena.
  • If you're in a match, you'll be redirected out of the arena system if the match completes during the maintenance period.
