my bet is that the game mechanics will all be messed up for the next few days after this too..guarantee there wont be a decent NPC anywhere when it comes back on line..

Glad I am in p mode for another day, though with the family loss it may extend for another week, got to help clean out the mother in laws house, funeral is next week on Tuesday seems there are too many dying to get buried.

10:31 pm PST all of my games will not connect. Internet is working. Asked others in other states in the USA and they are having the same problem.

What happens if we can't FRS and someone gets our fleets? Will we get all of our ships and defenses back and if not will be get all of our money back that we put into the game?

@YoYodotsgrandpa my condolations

a ping on guns.playstarfleet.com doesn't even return an IP address which implies a DNS problem.

Tracert dies on networklayer.com (DNS provider) they seem to be causing the problem, in that case the server will still be running which implies all ongoing operations will continue.

So, not a BFG issue, but something the company that owns the server is doing.

Still... one would think that the server owners would have notified their users of maintenance.... unless there problem is unexpected.

Shouldn't they have a backup server to prevent these kind of distributions ?

New Starr is right.  They'll just stop all attacks for 24 hours like they did before when this happened.  It does suck but you won't have to worry about FRS'ing.

Oh my, I am sorry to hear that YoYoDots. My mother died a little over three years ago, so I know how difficult life can be right afterwards.
