DC Universe Online Recieves EU Server Side Fixes, US Coming Soon?

The EU servers were brought down today in order to throw a few glitches out the window, some of which are pretty significant. Now, I don't usually post about EU news but there are a few things listed that caught my eye. I'd be expecting the US servers to get these fixes sooner than later.

Click below to view the detailed information on what was changed with this downtime. Things just keep getting better for DCUO!






EDIT: US servers will be going down tonight and will receive the same updates.

The EU servers will be locked at 12:30 CET and brought offline at 01:00 CET for server maintenance. Downtime is anticipated to be one hour and the servers should be available at 02:00 CET.
