"While applying patch 126.96.36.199 to the North American realm, we encountered significant difficulties that lengthened the intended downtime. In order to ensure patch 188.8.131.52 is applied smoothly to the European platform, we are delaying the patch by one day, which will allow us time to fix all of these issues and provide a safer, quicker update.- Phreak, Community Coordinator, via the official EU forums.
We’d like to apologize to those of you who were hoping to play Brand bright and early tomorrow morning, but delaying the patch will provide a higher-quality experience overall."
Edit: The forums are back up! Also, Brand has been confirmed as a 6300 IP / 975 RP champion.
