Related to the recent downtime, I am performing some hardware maintenance today starting at 13:00 server time. I expect this will last for approximately 30 minutes (I'm effectively switching a NIC on one of the servers).

During this time, the game servers and the IRC chat will be down. The website will still be functional through the maintenance.

Edit: The maintenance is complete, and services are back to working order.

Earlier today, the FFB game server started to act up and you haven't been able to play games properly over the day.

I've identified an issue with a network card and/or cable on the server that runs FFB where it's experiencing massive packet loss over that interface. This is the connection to the main database which as you may imagine is pretty important for functionality.

I have now temporarily moved the DB traffic over to another network and will take a look at the underlying hardware issue when I get the time to do so. At best, I'll be replacing a network cable (meaning no need to shut down the machine), and at worst I'll need to replace the NIC (meaning some shopping and a hardware maintenance window).

I'll keep you all posted about this and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Update: It's not a cable issue and I will be replacing the NIC in question at some point this weekend (most likely on sunday).

Cold weather got you down? Need a little pick me up to get you through the winter blahs? How about the greatest, most deadly, rookie tournament of them all. The Exploding Cup is back! Starting February 18th, the spiked balls and mayhem are a go!

This tournament is for rookie [S]tunty Leeg teams only. Never played Stunty before, here is your perfect chance to jump in with everyone else.
