Warhammer Online players to be compensated for weekend downtime

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 26 February 2013 07:36 GMT

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning had a “difficult” weekend, a post on the BioWare Social Newtwork reports, with lag spikes and zone crashes. It took Mythic’s team until Sunday to find the root cause, and severs had to be taken offline. Once Mythic has figured out who was affected by the downtime, which was unfortunately not announced in-game, it will compensate subscribers with ten days of game time and one Golden Writ, while all characters will reveive a 100% XP and RP boost for seven days; a stack of ten lesser bone wards; and a special title.

Thanks, Massively.
