Monday and still nothing? Are there no back ups?
As i understood, they have heavy problems with database because of the heritage items and some bugs with references. Probably, the developers need a "frozen" DB to fix the issues. That's why the server is down all the time. IMO
Technically the server is not down all the time. It's been switching from Online for testing and Offline. Judging from the activity, I believe they're trying a lot of different solutions and building/ applying them to test online.
Yes there are backups. It's not as simple as rolling straight back from whats been said
Pretty sure they said that to reset from an unaffected backup would undo too much player time. Like a month or more.

Backups are occurring once per month? Oy!
Not once per month on backups. They retain backups for as long as a month.
However the issue has apparently been going on longer than a month...
overheard at catnip: "oh, about that backup ....."
I am resolved to plan Land Rush 2.0
