The atemporary validation server seems to be up and running, as are the servers. Still a bit of a delay on any new registrations as that server is offline, but GOA hope to have it up and working later. Have heard from a few people that it is all working fine. So think this is the end of the short-burst news updates, as I go into the game to play with my guild! Looks like GOA site as well as WHA and Freddys will be keeping up-to-date so I’ll hand you over to them for the rest of the day!
Edit: apparently there is some delay in receiving confirmation emails. It’s been added to the Q&A now, 1-2 hours seems the current turn-around.
Good luck all, let’s toast GOA’s new commitment to keeping us updated and I hope you’re all in open beta shortly, enjoying it and slaughtering me in scenarios!
