At around 12:30 today in tick 209, new quests went live. Unfortunately, there were one or two issues with them, and they were found to be extremely unbalanced. Whilst efforts were made to fix this in real time, including delaying tick 210, it has been decided to roll back to tick 207 (10:30), and recall all fleets.
The game will reopen at 10:00 GMT on Monday, 2nd February, and ticks will restart at 11:00 GMT.
Apologies for all problems caused, but this is the most fair route in the circumstances.
