Update 13/04/2016 11:39am: everything is now back up and running! If you notice any inconsistencies, please submit a request so we can look into it!
We're expecting a short period of server downtime between 10:45am and 12pm BST, affecting all iOS Beta players.
You may encounter server errors while using the app, while we work on making improvements to the Run An Empire experience.
This is expected and is nothing to worry about - it's caused by the server-side team implementing planned changes and it should not take very long.
Sorry about the inconvenience! We will update this ticket once this has been resolved.
