Typically Beginners will last for a 16 day cycle, there is a in-game Extinction event timer which displays the time remaining however when a server crashes/rollbacks this timer can become un-synced.
Therefore causing this cycle of beginners to shutdown early. So what we are doing is rolling back to the point moments before the Extinction Meteor hit and re opening Beginners for the remaining few hours today for the 5pm BST deadline today (Sunday 18th August).
There will be no in game timer showing the time left so you must be aware of the shutdown time. I have made a unofficial countdown HERE for your use if you are unsure.
Sorry for the confusion and the time lost over last night and this morning.
