Realms came down a bit ago to facilitate a new build update. No ETA for today's push but things should be coming up soon(tm).
Additionally, today is the day you've all been waiting for. . . character copy will be enabled! Please note that under load, the character copy system could fail to create at times due to volume of requests. If things seem slow, take a deep breath, wait a bit and try again later.
As always, I'll leave this thread open for discussion as long as conversations remain civil and adhere to forum guidelines.
Thanks for your patience everyone!
