Downtime extension for deployment of EVE Online: Citadel expansion

The server downtime for deployment of the EVE Online: Citadel expansion will be extended a bit.

Originally we have estimated that we would need two hours to deploy the expansion on the TQ server, but we need a bit more time to deploy all the updates. EVE: Citadel is simply a massive huge expansion!

In the meantime we recommend to watch the Citadel trailer, the Citadel feature tour ... or re-watch the Fanfest 2016 stream!

Update 14:00
The Citadel expansion has been deployed successfully, TQ is now open and available for players! Please use this thread for feedback.

Update 13:45
TQ is now in VIP mode, which means that we are verifying the correctness of the expansion.

Update 13:35
If the verification process of the deployment doesn't find any issues, then TQ will be open for connections most likely around 14:00 UTC

Already started corp sweepstake before downtime on how long extension will be. You're becoming predictable CCP but work hard and get it on ASAP :)

... not new... next time announce 4 days.

If you deliver in 5 hours people will say: "oh... they are great!! The cut the deploy in 3 days and 19 hours".

No worries. Getting it done right is more important than getting it done fast.

Re-watch the fanfest stream? So ~23 hours delay? :)

This comes as no surprise, a rule of thumb when it comes to eve updates, double it and we will be closer to what it really will be

At least you guys got a huge time bank accumulated by cutting regular downtime from 30 min to 2-4 every day.
