    Hi Guys,

    I just got word from the server management team that the issue has been fixed. Though please do update us if you experience it again. We'll keep a close watch on the server's progress so we could update the team immediately.

    Best,
    Erik

    Seems ok here at the moment, if you haven't already, maybe try clearing your browser cache to see if that makes any difference.

    We obviously have a very different idea of fixed. Taking 30 seconds to load a page. Becoming a bit of a joke now.

    Fast for me now. But yeah, the whole thing was annoying. The forum is in enough turmoil as it is.

    Totally inconsistent. Thread pops right up, reply take forever to complete, next thread will hardly open, then reply is instant.

    Simply sucks........

    I mean, what is actually going on though. If these are constant server attacks surely the tech team would have sorted these out by now.

    But there seems to be more than meets the eye. Something might be happening behind the scenes.

    Surprised one of the TWF team has not updated us, they seem so quick on other matters.

    Seems better this evening, was like a slug earlier so I abandoned ship. I'm sure the team are aware of it, only Erik seems to be active nowadays though....

    Apologies for the late reply everyone. I'm the only one monitoring the forums at the moment and my shift ended yesterday and was not able to get another read in this section.

    I've been updating Anthony about the progress of our server's connectivity, though I believe this is not a normal connectivity case. I am also experiencing latency spikes when connecting until now and I already have again reported this.

    For the record, please do keep watch of your ping with TWF if the latency is high or not. Just type this in to cmd:

    Take note of the time (ms). The lower the time, the better the connection. If connections go as high as around 500ms, that's pretty bad news. I'll keep everyone posted if the tech team has figured this out.

    Thanks.
