related to the Chinese server info from the last post:
8.8 test server is supposed to start on 22.8.2013 (eg. on Thursday).
Two rounds of test are planned for now (22.8. and 29.8.)
The 8.8 is to go live on Russian server either on 8.9. or 9.9., on EU/NA/SEA it’s supposed to be between 10.9. and 12.9., for Korea it’s 17.9. – how much is this info reliable, I don’t know. But the test start is like 80 percent sure.
