Trade Skills Feature: Part 2

Oceanic Server Maintenece
All Oceanic servers were brought down at 4:45 PM EDT for an Immediate Server Maintenance, and will be brought back up at approximately 8:00 PM EDT. Also at this time, the Account Center is undergoing a maintenance at 6:00 PM EDT which shouldn't last more than one hour.
Another set of Hot Fixes for this weekend, fixing a few items and the rate at which Guild experience is earned*.
(* This is a temporary fix, and will be resolved in the near future.)
A reminder from Mythic, if you re-enlist your eligible for a 10 day free day look. Now that that the bugs have been worked out the free character transfer service, now’s a good time to come back and see what’s been happening with WAR.

Warhammer Online: Going down?
This Editorial, brought to you by ZAM, analyzes a quote from Mark Jacobs back in August 2008:
Quote:The corollary to that is if you've seen a game consolidate servers, you know it's in deep, deep trouble - that's not a healthy sign for an MMO," he said, citing Sony's January-released "Pirates of the Burning Sea" as a recent example. "It will be the same for 'Warhammer.' Look at us six months out. Look at us six weeks out. If we're not adding servers, we're not doing well."
Does this predict Warhammer Online's future, with their recent closing of 63 server due to lack of population, the past layoff rumors, and the heavy decline in players since release?

the recent closings, and are having problems switching to another server with
your free Server Transfer, James mentions that it should be fixed with today's
Account Center maintenace.
