Just wondering, are they going to shut down the servers to start the Double XP weekends? If so, any patch associated with it?

If I remember correctly, they only did that for the first one, and after that, they just turned double xp on. The update took no more than an hour, though.
Give me a duel autodecline, please!

There has not been any downtime announced -- so I highly doubt it will be necessary. Kinda like the gree event was the last time. DXP is all server-side -- no need to update client-side.

Patch 2.2.1 is slated for this upcoming Tuesday, so I doubt we will get anything beforehand, unless an exploit pops up.

It will just come on, no downtime. At least that's what happened last time.

Figured they would take the downtime to throw in the patch if there is one. Thanks for the answers though

Well it hasn't started yet and it was supposed to start 5 mins ago.

Cheers,

I really hope xp gain isn't something that's calculated on the client.

No patch. Its a friday, they dont do patches on fridays unless its an emergency.
The function of double xp has already been installed, they are basically just switching it on (its always there, just not active, just like the gree event)
