    Hello pilots,

    We are deploying an update to all live servers on Wednesday, July 16th. This release will contain the redesign of the capital class with an overhauled item set and an advanced version.

    - Asteroids will break when they collide with Line ships

    o Old Jump Transponder Systems will be refunded in Tuning Kits as well
    Bugfixes:
    ·The Flechette cannon sound has been exchanged
    ·Fixed an error with a story mission where players were stuck in the outpost


    With this update we’ll also update the Unity version to 4.5 and therefore every player has to download the latest Unity version.

    This update will need a server maintenance of approx. 120 minutes overall. We are going to start to shut the servers down at 9.30am CEST (UTC+2). The countdown will start around 15 minutes beforehand on each server.
    The game update will be deployed as following:

    9.30 am CEST – EU Kobol
    10.00 am CEST – EU Libran, Virgon, Canceron
    10.30 am CEST – EU Tauron, Picon, Sagittaron
    11.00 am CEST – US EAST
    11.30 am CEST – US WEST

    Good morning from Hamburg city fellow pilots!


    Unfortunately we won't release the carrier today and postpone the update until further notice.

    The reason behind that decision is an issue with the item migration which we encountered while doing the last checks yesterday night. Due to that issue we won't release the update, since we don't want to exchange your items with a fault migration and avoid any mistakes. We'll do some tests with the item migration today and as soon as there's any further information regarding the update we'll let you know.


    We apologize for any inconveniences caused and wish you great day anyway.


    Cheers,
    The Battlestar Galactica Online Team

    Hello pilots,

    Unfortunately we have an issue with the update and therefore Libran will have an extended maintenance time until further notice, while all other servers (except Kobol) will be updated ~2 hours later.

    Hello fellow pilots,

    Unfortunately today’s maintenance will take more time than usual and we'd like to keep you up-to date regarding the current release state. While Kobol already received the carrier update successfully, the other servers will take quite more time due to the carrier item migration and sadly we can't provide you an estimated downtime.

    Libran is already down a while and will be back as soon as the whole migration is finished and all other servers will follow step by step afterwards.

    We apologize for any inconveniences and awaiting the carrier.

    Cheers,
    The Battlestar Galactica Online Team
