Correction. It seems like this would be messing with the timing of a siege. We will postpone the patch to later during the night.

Server is back up with Patch 2.4:
Removal of fizzles:
- Characters can no longer fail spells at random.
- Individual spells will use their previous fizzle odds to increase cast time and reduce magnitude to produce the same loss of DPS, without the random aspect.
- Players with 0 encumbrance are handled as if they had no odds of fizzles in the old system.
- When under the effect of the tongue rot spell, a spell can soft-fizzle at random, in which case it will cost twice the amount of mana/stamina and will have half the magnitude of a normal cast.
- Transfers will keep a flat cost when they soft fizzle.
- Adept is unchanged, and will act similar to unburden, but it is scheduled to be changed further down the line.

Please note: the system is under tuned to not break destroyers, but we made the entire system modular so we can tweak it easily.
We're expecting a lot of feedback from the players to let us find the proper encumbrance impact to avoid heavy armored mages becoming the norm.

Removal of all global diplomatic announcement at the exception of:
- When a holding gets captured or changes hands, the announcement is still global to allow for bragging rights.
- Village related global messages.

Bugfixes and tweaks:
- Siegestones can now be placed at a maximum distance of 1000m, increased from 750m.
- Monster loot table fixes.
- Idawoll blacksmith now has the proper inventory.

As a reminder:
The server will go down for maintenance today at 15:00 CEST for maintenance.
It will come back online and be available only to those that have purchased the game.
Downtime could be longer than usual due to database work. Estimated at up to 1 hour.

Server is back online.
Clan feeds should now be corrected as well. Let us know if you still have issues with them.

Server is down for a fix.

To explain what is happening:
During this maintenance we attempted a fix to the Clan news reel and clan vault statistics which involved the database.
The issue might have been a bit deeper than we expected and it caused side effects. We'll be reverting to right before that change.

We'll give an ETA if it isn't fixed in 30 minutes.

Restoration of the backup is completed.
We're launching the server again to test if it worked out.

If it did, ETA 20 minutes for a reopening.

We have shut down the server to handle the storage character situation.
We do not have an ETA yet for a solution, but it was the safest move to avoid any issues of people overwriting their characters.

We have some good and bad news.
We believe we have found a solution, but we will have to rollback.
The fix should take 1h to implement and test, and we should have an ETA for server up then once we have confirmation it works.

Looks like our fix worked. We will be reopening the server to test with more eyes to confirm.

Update: Yes, the fix worked. You can play with a light heart.
Sorry for the annoyance and the rollback.
