    I saw that the weekend testing was extended but what I read never said til what time so I assumed the same time as it would have ended on Sunday.

    Unfortunately at 8:45pm CT the servers are not available.

    I never even got to see the other town. I spent a few hours testing the crafting on Saturday.

    edit: found the page. As you can see, it doesn't give a stop time.

    Remember that times would be in Austin Texas time. I know it was still running around 9pm on what would be their Sunday (it is Monday now in the US where I am), so it was extended. A stop time was not given, but I assumed it would be Sunday 10pm US CST time. In the end, every moment beyond 10pm US CST on Saturday was a gift. :)

    I thought it was ending on Sunday, not Saturday.

    It was originally through Saturday, but like R1, was extended through Monday morning (I believe around 9am or so Central US time). Fortunately, that gave me/us another day to play **** jump test around the game, however, I ended up at work and missed the end of the test, so I don't know the exact time it went down other than "Monday morning".

    It feels like it should naturally go through Sunday.

    So much for my Kingsport videos. All I have to show for it is crafting.

    They only cut off logging in so if you were still online as of Monday morning you could still play. I know I was still running around Kingsport as late as 11:30am PST before I timed out due to being idle. :)

    I was playing until well after midnight Sunday PST (early Monday), unfortunately I could not play beyond that because of work.

    They have no way to kick us out of the game! :cool: ...makes a mental note for R3.
    I'll just use a macro-bot to keep my avatar from timing out.

    Hehe they do have a way of kicking us out if they want to. I'm sure if smack was on there long enough past a certain point they would have kicked him. they can disconnect all current players. What they'll usually do is stop logins, then a bit later disconnect all. That is likely how they'll handle server reboots/updates.

    The servers were up, and if you didnt logout/stayed in, were still in on monday afternoon, when some admins asked you to politely log out.

    If I wasn't already way late for work, that's what I would have done :). By the time I got to work to remote into my home machine to set it up, I had already timed out!
