  1. Hello everyone. Unfortunately, a smooth launch was too much to ask for. As you all probably know by now, we were hit with a DDoS attack some hours after the launch of Update 1.2. As annoying as this may be, we are taking steps to turn this to everyones advantage. I announced earlier that we were already looking at migrating the hosting of Wurm. When the attack forced us offline, we went straight ahead and pushed for this to happen as soon as possible. And as we were already close to finishing the tests and deal, we are confident that Wurm shall be running on the new servers within a day. The upside of this is that the new servers would mean better overall performance, capacity and stability for Wurm. We will also be getting better downtime response. No premium time will be lost and the game whilst down is frozen in time so your deeds are safe. Though still unclear regarding status of a rollback, we have backups on the data from just after the attack and from earlier in the day. So a rollback, if any, should not present anything but a minor change in progression. **Updated Information 20:00 CET February 19th** As for knowing more around 20:00 CET as previously mentioned. We can only say that everything is progressing as well as can be expected. If anyone saw servers seemingly online it is only for a controlled shut down of the old ones. Going online with the new servers will take some more time. As we where just pulled, not shut down, the servers were going over night. When we now started to do a controlled shut down, some players got twitter messages concerning deeds and titles. But it is now frozen and no further time will be added. **Updated Information 23:20 CET February 19th** I can now confirm the servers will not be online until earliest some time tomorrow. It is in the hands of the new Host now. ************************************************************* **Updated Information 10:35 CET February 20th** Server devs are currently configuring the new servers. Things are looking good, but we do not have a new ETA at this time. ***************************************************************Updated Information 18:20 CET February 20th***************************************************************On a more personal note, I would like to thank our great community for showing your support! Makes us gladly go that extra mile to get things up and running even better then before. Wurm shall rise again!
