    Spectrum - Louisville, Kentucky

    This whole server disconnect and unable to authenticate the server has been intermittent (for me at least) since the extended maintenance occurred on May 29th. I let it slide because well, while being disconnected doing literally anything is bloody annoying, i could usually log back in.

    Now.......we can't.

    Yes, I've been trying all day and it's not letting me in either.

    Broken again? Maybe you should consider making off-line games, as online does not seem to be the company's specialty? Just an observation. Well I am under Spectrum in Bay City, Michigan. I will try again later tonight. Hope you get it up and running for the 6th anniversary, best wishes.

    seems like this is a lot bigger than you all originally thought its all over the U.S. and overseas any time frame?

    Belatedly - The tracerts in this thread helped us track down the issue (thanks a ton!), and we think it's resolved on the back-end as of ~5 minutes ago. There are DNS shenanigans involved, so it may take a little bit for the fix to propagate.
