Due to a potential issue that could cause characters to become stuck after ship destruction or being podkilled, we feel that it is necessary to postpone the deployment of the March release, which was scheduled to go live on Tranquility tomorrow, March 8th 2016.

The EVE Development team here at CCP are constantly working to ensure that each release is deployed with the best game performance and player experience at the forefront of our goals. Right now, we feel that due to this issue, the March release isn’t quite there yet, and as such we will push back the release by a few days in order to iron out this issue.

This shouldn’t take too long, and hopefully in the coming days we’ll be able to give you an update, and announce a new deployment date for the March release.

With this in mind, the extended daily downtime that was required for tomorrow will not be needed, and downtime will occur in the regularly scheduled 30 minute window, beginning at 11:00 UTC.

Good catch, thanks for the info.
Nice to see CCP keeping us upto date in the forums not.

I expect to get this post deleted or locked. So much for freedom of expression.

The day of doom is postponed.

Attention, merc targets, you have one more week to do your stuff before you have to dock permanently or get into an NPC corp.

Not on the (new) launcher notification bubble (as of this post), safe to asssume a severely dysfunctional customer messaging system if it's not there Soon™.

It's hard to post updates if people beat me to it.

Edit: There's a sticky at the top of the page. Closing this thread for redundancy.
