S6 Will be end of lifed on Saturday, December 1st. At this point, the server will be archived and all stats frozen (for display/reward purposes)
I will then be taking a few months break before I come back and start work on S7. I will have more info on S7 Beta/Launch dates in the future.
The server will remain open while I'm away however, there will be no answers to bug reports or petitions until I start work on S7. There may be varying degrees of server availability during this time as I work on the back end (Router upgrades waiting, New Ethernet cables waiting to be run, etc).
The server will not be wiped until It is required for S7 work to begin, I'd expect this to be a few to several months.
