UO Herald - Hotfix

Publish 98 Hotfix

Beginning with European shards this evening, 8/16/2017, and continuing with all shards tomorrow, 8/17/2017, we are in the process of deploying a server crash fix to all shards during regular maintenance times.  Once the fix has been deployed to all shards, Part I of the Shattered Obelisk will be re-enabled.

We apologize for any inconvenience while we address this issue.

See you in Britannia,

Producer Note

Greetings Everyone,

I would like to address a very serious issue with you all.  As most of you are aware we have had players threaten other players that are coming to the 20th Anniversary Party.  We treat these issues incredibly seriously, and all harassment pages, including threats, are logged on the server.  We then forward these logs as a potential threat to law enforcement, who will follow up to the fullest extent of the law.  Please know we do not take this lightly.   For all of those that are worried regarding the 20th Anniversary Party the issue has been resolved and you should not have any concerns regarding your safety.

Thank You,

Bonnie “Mesanna” Armstrong

Producer
