Hi everyone, the other post was too full for me to provide official updates - so I will be adding them here for folks to watch. You will not be able to comment on this thread. I will be adding updates as comments.
The current goal of the team is to restart Fight Pits this evening (6/19). They are working on making sure they can do that safely as of right now (6:38pm PST).
Atlas Update: Castles are currently bubbled and we have extended the no-pvp period.
We are nearing a conclusion to our current workflow. Expect there to be some weirdness in the app for just a bit (minutes, not hours) as we tidy up the backend.
The event has started, and the battle phase should start soon!
