The Division 2 Scheduled Server Maintenance | Server Shutdown Imminent Today

Another The Division 2 scheduled server maintenance today (March 22, 2019) is happening, with downtime estimated to last for 3 hours, up until 4:30 AM ET/9:30 AM CET. It’s possible that The Division 2 server shutdown today could last longer, as developer Massive Entertainment has only provided an estimate. Leading up to the downtime, players may have noticed a “Server Shutdown Imminent” message in-game. This is the maintenance that the message was referring to. The developers are implementing some significant changes and fixes during this downtime. Read on for the full list of patch notes.

The Division 2 Scheduled Server Maintenance Today | Patch Notes March 22, 2019

The Division 2 Server Shutdown Imminent

  • Fixed an issue where players were not being granted Clan XP
  • Fixed an issue where daily and weekly resets would not apply to players who were offline during the time of reset
  • Fixed an issue where players could lose guiding missions and access to guiding mission NPCs, making them unable to further progress
  • Improved survivability of low level players against enemy NPCs when playing co-op with a player of higher level

The Division 2 scheduled server maintenance today is happening now, with downtime expected to last for 1.5 hours. Server shutdown today should therefore last 90 minutes, and players should be able to get back into the game after this short break. If The Division 2 “Server Shutdown Imminent” message appearing in-game had you worried, then this should alleviate some stress. You will still be able to play The Division 2 today!

The Division 2 Maintenance

The latest period of The Division 2 scheduled server maintenance is estimated to last 1.5 hours (90 minutes).

Here’s what is being fixed during the scheduled server maintenance:

Bug fixes

  • Implemented a fix that should reduce occurrences of client crashes when using skills
  • Fixed an issue where players could be stuck in the wrong World Tier if they completed Strongholds without meeting the required Gear Score while in a group
  • Fixed an issue where players wouldn’t be able to talk to agent Kelso at the Castle Settlement
  • Fixed an issue where players could obtain multiple Ivory Keys from the same source
  • Fixed an issue where map progress would not be saved when completing Open World activities and Side missions in another players’ instance.
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed players to loot Supply Drops multiple times
  • Fixed a bug where players could buy blueprints repeatedly at the vendors by logging out and back in
  • Fixed an issue where combining the Dialed in talent with the Emet Mask could lead to greatly increased Accuracy and Stability

What did the previous The Division 2 scheduled server maintenance change and fix?

The Division 2 Server Shutdown Imminent

The patch notes for the previous The Division 2 maintenance, which was initially delayed but then presumably deployed successful, had three key fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where players could be stuck in the wrong World Tier if they completed Strongholds without meeting the required Gear Score while in a group
  • Fixed an issue where players wouldn’t be able to talk to agent Kelso at the Castle Settlement
  • Fixed an issue where players could obtain multiple Ivory Keys from the same source

These three main fixes all target bugged missions or interactions that have been halting player progress within the game.

While we await the end of downtime, players experiencing these problems can at least feel reassured that their issues are almost over, and they’ll soon be able to carry on progressing through the game.

The game has just launched, which means there are a lot of players attempting to join in with the fun. Though we hope that The Division 2 launch will be stable, what with the betas providing some useful server stress test numbers, it’s possible that more issues will arise.
