Greetings, Talonians! Spring is well underway, and along with blooming flowers are two quick announcements concerning both Battlegrounds and Daylight Savings Time in Midgard!
First, we're pleased to announce that our first and second Battlegrounds Closed Beta tests have been a wonderful success! Thanks to the efforts of our mighty group of Talonian testers, we have structured Battlegrounds with new multiple modes, dynamic queues, and much more. We are actively taking this work and feedback to craft TalonRO's final implementation testing of Battlegrounds - this time through an open beta offering in the main server environment, and look forward to bringing in this update for final testing! We hope that the entire community will enjoy the action and excitement of Battlegrounds - whether you're a war savvy veteran, or someone who has never stepped foot in PvP before now! As always, we will continue to keep you updated on our continual progress with TalonRO's Battlegrounds refresh, and when you can expect this beta implementation to be available to try out!
Secondly, please note that Daylight Savings Time will be in effect for Midgard (server) time starting at 2:00am on Sunday, March 25th. This will cause the time to leap forward by one hour - so be sure to remember this when making your in-game plans or attending events.
Additionally, Sunday's WoE:FE Non-Trans will be cancelled due to the time change, and WoE:SE will however continue as scheduled on Sunday, March 25th. WoE will resume on normal schedule with Wednesday WoE on March 28th.
We hope that you're enjoying that extra bit of daylight - and as always, happy gaming!

Daylight Savings Time is about to end - and TalonRO is ready to make the switch! In order to make the time change, TalonRO will be offline for maintenance beginning at 0230 on Sunday, October 29th (Midgard server time).
During this time, TalonRO will be offline for an estimated 45 minutes time and back online at an estimated 0315 hours - or 0215 in the new DST-ended time (remember: clocks roll backward one hour this time around!).
This maintenance is planned to ensure that War of Emperium will still take place at the planned 0245 start in the new adjusted server time. We hope the impact to your gaming experience will be minimal - and you're welcome to join us in Discord during this maintenance period on Sunday morning server time.
Thanks as always for your continued support and enjoyment of TalonRO - as always, happy gaming!
