***UPDATE: PC maintenance officially started as of 8:30AM CDT.
We will be taking the PC game servers offline on Thursday, August 3rd, 8:30AM - 10:00AM CDT while we push the 1.8.0b hotfix. We've received a great deal of feedback and it was clear that the community wasn't happy with the recent Elite Status outcome. So, we've gone ahead and increased Elite Status from 1.5x to 2x. This hotfix should improve Elite Status and make it feel more like a decent value for players that are looking to increase their progression even further.
This is just a small part of our refinement and improvement process. We're going to continue to review feedback and data in hopes that we can find the best ways to normalize the overall player experience.
