9 hours of maintenance. So, translating that into K2 time, servers should be back by . . . Saturday?
While they're down, for some KO comic relief, I'm starting this thread, and I've got an hilarious and truly embarassing story to kick it off.
When I made my first character, a friend and I went to Eslant the night we hit level 40. It was so cool checking the place out for the first time. We ran all four quadrants, getting a bit turned around at times, did some hit and runs, and attacked random stuff to see if we could kill it. When it came time to leave Eslant, we towned, but couldn't figure out how to get back to Karus. So, we asked in normal chat. Someone responded, "you just run into that big rock over there." So, we proceeded to start smacking our characters repeatedly into the big tree (at the time I didn't even notice it was a tree and not a rock) that sits right in the middle of town. And not just once, multiple times, from every side. We did this over and over and over. Some people in chat said, "no, no, over there", but we still couldn't figure it out! Finally, some priest said "follow me!", but you know she had to be pissing her pants laughing at us. When we finally saw the teleporter gate, it was like, duh, well this is kinda obvious, and we realized we must have looked like total idiots! I laughed so hard for so long I had tears running down my face, and to this day we both still get cracked up completely when thinking about it.
