US Hosting Center currently running on power generators
As you may have heard, hurricane ‘Sandy’ has been hitting the east coast of the United States last night and also resulted in the loss of electrical power for a huge area. Our US hosting center is also located in that territory and they are currently running on generator power to keep the servers and installations running. It might be that if these generators run out of fuel, they could no longer provide power. This would result in all of our games (except Age of Conan European servers) and services getting temporarily unavailable.
We do not expect this to happen but it is currently impossible to estimate the chance of this situation to occur. It also depends on the further situation with hurricane ‘Sandy’. If anything should change in the given situation, we would inform you again.
It's good to see that Funcom take the effort and tell their followers what to expect. I've just read a blogpost today praising Funcom for their efforts of providing a good customer support; this is perfectly in line with that.
