I would like to apologise for the down-time experienced today between 5pm and 8.30pm GMT. Our software and hardware have been battered by the massive influx of traffic for Skyrim and to make matters worse, today, we've been under a continued DoS attack which was the last straw for our hardware.
We've moved ourselves over on to a new routed setup but our US carrier is currently experiencing difficulties working with it, so right now all traffic is going through our UK provider. Good if you're in Europe, not so great if you're in the US. Hopefully we'll get it all back to normal soon enough.
I'd like to thank the majority for their kind words of support and encouragement over these past few days as we work hard to ensure your experience is as good as possible. I myself have only had about 10 hours sleep since Skyrim was released 4 days ago, so rest assured I'm not just sitting about twiddling my thumbs.
Keep your eyes on the news guys.
