Update 2 - 11 AM PST (7PM GMT) - The Store & latency issues have been resolved and everything should be working as normal now.

Update 1 - 9:35 AM PST (5:35 PM GMT) - We're bringing Defiance back online but the Defiance Store is not up and running. We're going to continue to work on resolving the store issues.

The team is aware of increased lag in Defiance and are working to get it sorted out as quickly as possible.

We are bringing the servers offline for a bit to resolve this and we'll post regular updates here.

Being ArkHunters, we all know that it’s important to take time out from time to time to be with our families and loved ones. That’s why later this week we’ll be a bit MIA as we attend Thanksgiving festivities here in the US.

Our CS team is offline for all of Thursday, November 23, 2017. This may cause a delay in ticket responses as a result. Additionally, the dev and community teams are officially offline from Nov. 23 – 24.

We hope you guys and gals have a great Thanksgiving as well and we’ll see you next week!
