Update on Xbox 360 EU:

So, let me first explain a bit of what has been going on with our EU environments lately. We have been moving server hardware for our EU environments, for both Defiance and Defiance 2050. This is a careful and risk filled endeavor, and it takes quite a lot of time to do, hence the extended 6 hour + downtimes we have been posting.

We have already completed the move for Defiance 2050 hardware, and attempted to move the D13 hardware last week, but failed to do so and had to reschedule the move to today. Our D13 PC- EU and PS3- EU hardware has been successfully moved and those environments are back up and running with no issues (you may even notice more stability on those environments, after being moved).

For Xbox 360 EU we have run into an issue that is very unique, and unique to that environment only. Unfortunately, "unique" translates into we need more time. That being said, and we very much hate to do this, we will be keeping Xbox 360 - EU environment down and locked until we are able to implement the solution needed to get the environment back up and running correctly.

I do not have a time estimate, at this moment, as to when that will be, but I will be keeping you all regularly updated. Let me apologize profusely for any inconvenience this may cause our Xbox 360 - EU players and I promise I will keep you all updated as I get information in. Thank you all, once again and I wish you all happy hunting, Arhunters!
