The process of the update has begun, I am not sure how long it will take to complete the updating of the game but the game server will be offline for an undetermined amount of time. Even though it may be possible to login at some stage of the update I recommend that you do not login until the update is completed because you will get auto kicked by the server.
I will keep everyone informed of when the update is completed so just be patient and lets hope I don't break anything xD. During this time you are welcome to use the forum as it will not be effected by the update.
The update process consists of 4 main steps:
1 ) shut it all down and prepare for the update
2 ) backup of everything just in case something goes wrong
3 ) update everything that needs to be updated
4 ) test everything to make sure it is running the way that it is supposed to be
( Complete )
