There seems to be no end in sight for the server work, which Standing Stone Games has repeatedly delayed since this past Wednesday. As of last night, the studio said that both games (and their respective websites) would be offline at least until 2:00 p.m. eastern on Friday and that it would be delivering a further update on the situation this morning.that ended up causing worse performance issues than before the change-up began. Both MMO communities have divided among those peeved at the lack of gaming and those showing support to SSG.
At least players are getting a few good jokes in to handle the wait:
