Where did it say that it likely wouldn't be happening until next week? I've scoured their Twitter and the news section, even the forums themselves, and I've seen nothing that says either the servers are all going to be offline, or that the servers would be delayed. I'm just curious as to where you got this information.
On dayz twitter they said they were turning off private servers as the large and increasing list was causing error 9. Im back on mine now though couldnt see any other private servers so the may be only visible to the ones using them. I dont know however as I am currently live in my own server
While I didn't see that tweet, I'll take your word for it. Hopefully they start to install servers again soon, but with the amount they have to do and go through, I doubt it.
