    FYI erinnyes....WE.....the people you see on these forums, and the ones that still remain loyal to the game and play it with its many, many, many flaws, are also part of the "Defiance Team." That is something I think Trion, and now you and Gamigo repeatedly keep forgetting.
    I have a feeling it will be for moving the servers to the cloud platform. Only reason I can think of for listing it as 10 hour downtime, when the 2nd highest pre-determined downtime was 6 hours for EU...updates and that have usually been listed as 4 hours, with sometimes taking more (or less) to go through.

That is all that needs to be known down here. Defiance!

    Yep ... most likely migration to the Gamigo Cloud Platform. That's the most obvious reason for such a long expected downtime.

    PC might be done in the 6 hours (like the estimated downtime for EU) ... but then Xbox One and PS4 have some extra steps, which explain the subsequent delays for those platforms, as mentioned here:

    They have to peel the data bits off the DAT, polish them, and re-glue them to the tape.
    It has to be done one-by-one, or else somebody will mix 'em up.
    It's really very intensive work.

    Remember those old sci/fi movies, in the computer room?
    Blinking lights and spinning mag tape reels?
    And then there would be smoke and showers of sparks?

    Yeah, thats what happens if you glue the data bits back on in the wrong order.

    Don't ask me how I know this,
    These are just my opinions.
    I have lots of opinions.
    Some of them, on occasion, people have agreed with.
    I do not trust those people.

    I had thought this was already done.......but again it would have been better to have been told this by the gd CM instead of some vague bs.

    So,
    Where are the notes on why your product is going to be out of service for so long?
    If it contains any information on bug fixes, than I don't mind.
    Otherwise...there are systemic problems at your end.

    There is none! Everything is so secretive here! Not sure why they can't tell us what is actually happening in this ten hour operation. There is some speculation they are moving the servers to there cloudbase platform.
