Nope, it’s got nothing to do with the release. All Turbine sites are down, even the main site. Game servers are down. No way to play or check forums.
I hope to find everything back online again tomorrow!
ETA: Ther was a power outage which caused the “crash”. Site is back online, but not yet the game servers. I keep my fingers crossed they’ll be back online before 06:00 AM, cause I reall, really, really want that steed & toolkit and I just had enough tokens to buy them when the servers went offline……
