All services are now back online
In order to further improve the systems that run NI we are scheduling some downtime on Saturday morning GMT.
Follow us on twitter for the fastest updates: https://twitter.com/NordInvasion
0900 - 2200 GMT/UTC (hopefully - sorry its taking longer than expected!)

What is happening
We are doing some massive upgrades with a view to increasing the performance of the systems, specifically the database.
This is likely to last a couple of hours as it will involve massive backups and reshuffling of systems and data. During this time all EU servers, websites and databases will be offline. This also means that no equipment or loot will be handed out to players on AU or NA servers. Additionally the primary teamspeak server will be offline. We may have a backup working - check back here for details as we will keep you posted if it's available.
When the services are back up we will update this thread, IRC and the forum as a whole. I have included a chart to help users understand the impact.
