As you all know, all our servers have been down since early morning on Sunday 04/27 and I am very sorry for the inconvenience. This is due to a certain player who couldn't play by the rules and ended up getting banned. In his inability to deal with a ban, he decided to ruin the fun for other players by attacking the servers with an exploit that takes advantage of a weakness of the source engine that has existed for many many years. I have spent the past couple of days working on a fix with some success. However there are no promises of when that fix will be finished. This person will not get their way and will not be unbanned just because they feel like they didn't deserve a ban. Break the rules and you will be punished, end of story. I am also considering other options, such as moving all West Coast servers to a single machine in Los Angeles that is much more powerful (and more expensive) which can handle the abuse much better. East Coast servers would also move to a single location, somewhere on the East Coast. But these are just options that are being considered and nothing is set in stone. I am going to try to keep the IP Addresses the same but there is a chance they might change as I might switch providers completely. I just wanted to keep you all updated on what is going on. Don't worry about our future since I won't give up that easily. This has been a stressful couple of days but I am blessed to have great people in my life who have kept me in high spirits and thanks to all the support I have been receiving from the community.
