Patch notes can be found here, and we expect this maintenance to last for 5 hours and 30 minutes. The test server may also be unavailable during this time.
Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Ah, bugger. Usually I don't mind the few hours downtime, even though I live in mainland Europe. But 5.5 hours, from 2pm to 7:30... that sucks hardcore. And most of the time I'm the one preaching reason to all them complaining smegheads.
Beam: Fire-at-Will no longer drains more Weapon Energy than intended.
Just to clear it up: lets say I have 2 Beams fore and 2 beams aft, And if I have 6 enemies dead ahead, and 6 behind, I loose about 50% of my Weapon power.
But if I have all 12 enemies ahead and none behind. I should loose 25% of my Weapon power, since only half of my weapons are firing. But until the patch I think I could have been loosing the 50% as if I had enemies behind.
