UPDATE 3: Today's outage has been extended by an hour. We anticipate that the servers will be available by 5:00 PM PDT. In the meantime, be sure to check out the Map Overview video for Facility!

UPDATE 2: Thanks for your patience, pilots! We've resolved the bug and will be releasing the Facility Update on May 9 at 2:00 PM PDT. Please note, the team has removed two balance changes (Shield and Detonator) for further internal evaluation.

UPDATE: In final testing, the team has discovered that the build we were aiming to ship tomorrow has a new bug that occasionally boots players upon map rotation. As a result, we're going to postpone shipping the Facility Update until we resolve the bug. The new drop date is likely this Thursday but may take a little bit longer. We'll be sure to keep you updated!

Attention, pilots!

The HAWKEN servers will be unavailable at 2:00 PM PDT (GMT-7) on May 7 to introduce the Facility Update. This outage will also address longer-than-usual sync times. The servers will be accessible again by 4:00 PM.

Get ready for the new patch with these articles:
See you on the new battlefield!

For once, please make the servers stable after an update, patches are almost always followed by server outages, sync and login problems and such. Anyways, excited for the patch, can't wait to see the Facility in all its beauty. :)

Get your hard on.

Seriously, try not to be so negative.  They are doing their best, and sometimes software changes in one area impact completely different areas and don't always show up during internal testing.  Sometimes you have no control over unseen problems arising.

As far as this update goes, I really doubt there will be any problems mostly because they are not deploying a major new feature like they did last patch.

Deng, I was lookin forward to this update today. Good thing you guys caught that bug though. Definitely would have been annoying to keep getting booted from matches. Hope you get it fixed in time for Thursday.

Sweet nectar! Glad to know that you guys are fixing the server issues. I was really getting irritated of getting kicked back to the menu after a match.

Thanks for letting us know. I was thinking when I launched last night that there was suppose to be an update, but my launcher didn't update.

Hope this update goes smoothly.

@ss396

Being optimistic is ok, but the track record speaks for itself. They same problems have happened every update, but supposedly (if I'm remembering right) that's why they made the new launcher, and supposedly should be fixed with the new patches to be more smooth. I do hope it goes well, but I wouldn't hold my breath to much based on the past updates.

I will never understand how people can go around flaming and being antagonistic in general
It's a logically fallacious tactic used to try and discredit any opposing opinion that may follow, by claiming dissenting opinions are just flaming and that those opinions are worth less than their own. Whether people use this tactic habitually as a defense mechanism, or intentionally because they secretly understand the weakness of their claims and the backing logic, I don't know.
