Neocron has gone down for some scheduled maintenance at the moment, this annoucement on the Neocron forums gives some information to runners:
To allow us to perform some needed maintenance and updates across the entire Neocron server environment, all servers will be slowly taken offline starting at 11:30 GMT / 12:30 BST / 13:30 CET.
This down time will affect all of our first party services, including the game servers, launcher, website, IRC channel and these forums.
For up to date information during the downtime, please join us at facebook or follow us on twitter
We apologise for the inconvenience caused and hope to be back online ASAP.
Your Neocron Support Team
They really do mean everything but so far other than for "needed maintenance" we do not know what is being completed. No doubt, more information will follow regarding this downtime, and as the annoucement states, join them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
The THN will be keeping a close eye on developments and let you know when everything is back up and running again. When we asked them earlier this was the response:
THN :: @OfficialNeocron Is there an estimated time for this scheduled down time? Or is it a case of it will be up when its up?
Neocron :: @TechHaven We'll let everyone know via Twitter and Facebook when we're back online. Current ETA is "When it's Done™" ;)
Keep tuned for more info!
UPDATE :: As of 3pm BST the Neocron servers across the board were reported as back online again. Still no word on the reason for the downtime, but we will keep trying to find out for you all! :: Just down for maintenance - @TechHaven Just good old fashioned maintenance :)
