Hello all!

As you may have noticed the date has been pushed back by four days and there are two aspects to our decision to do this:

1) There are a few more features we would like to be online when we open, and the delay gives us the time to complete those features (a highly custom fishing, mining and woodcutting method)

2) Original opening was on Tuesday for most of the world and opening in the middle of the week is not ideal as there are still some people who have exams.

3) Original opening would be Wednesday my time (a day I have a lot of lectures) and I would be unable to be online to debug / solve any immediate problems that come up

The weekend opening means we can get more players, with staff online to fix and critical issues instantly and allows the full implementation of our basic features. This date is now highly unlikely to change / be delayed further.
