The Chesapeake shard, which has been a week behind the other shards in the event scenario, was updated with the current week of the event scenario publish this morning, which has reverted it from its state of Publish 12 back to Publish 11 along with the other shards.
We sincerely regret this necessity, but the Chesapeake shard is being reverted at this time to a backup from approximately 12:00 am this morning (CDT) to ensure that the correct publish is active (Publish 12). To prevent any players on Chesapeake from losing their homes due to having refreshed them after the 12:00 am backup, we will be automatically refreshing all homes on the Chesapeake shard when it is brought back up. We appreciate your understanding, and apologize for any inconvenience.
If you collected all the former UO Players who lost homes and ultimately cancelled accounts because they lost everything to a handful of shard reversals, you could fill a stadium. This policy is, well, refreshing. Thanks, OSI. You saved me from having to fake an illness and going home immediately to refresh my houses. I’ll return your kindness by continuing to pay my $9.95 a month.
