Earlier in April we announced (under: Forthcoming Changes) that our SysAdmin team would be undertaking heavy maintenance work to our network and hardware at various hosting facilities. On Wednesday 18th April, at 7:30am BST, maintenance work will begin at the facilities which host our UK worlds. Additionally, we'll be changing the world for Bounty Hunter earlier than we would normally, since it will be affected by the maintenance.Server Maintenance: Wednesday 18th April
On Wednesday 18th April, at 7:30am BST, 21 UK-based Old School RuneScape worlds will be offline for a period of 8 hours. You'll be able to continue to play on worlds hosted in other locations during this time. We do appreciate your patience, whilst it might not be ideal to play on a world hosted elsewhere, the maintenance work is essential.
The worlds affected are: 2, 8, 9, 10, 16, 17, 18, 25, 26, 33, 34, 41, 42, 49, 50, 58, 65, 66, 73, 81, and 82.
There is planned maintenance for worlds hosted in other locations, and we'll continue to inform you well in advance.
We have previously announced that the standard PvP world, the High Risk PvP world, the F2P PvP world, and the Bounty Hunter world will all adhere to a world-change rota (see the linked newspost for more information). The server maintenance detailed above means that the Bounty Hunter world is affected and will be offline for the duration of the maintenance period. Since the Bounty Hunter world was scheduled to change with Thursday's game update anyway, we've opted to accelerate the change for the Bounty Hunter world. As of Tuesday 12pm BST, the Bounty Hunter world will be world 19. There will be a 30 minute countdown as of 11:30am BST. The other rota-affecting worlds will not change until Thursday's game update.
