Please Cryptic you NEED to start giving us some information about what is causing all this unexpected downtime. It's been 3 hours and still no news :-(
And it's not like this is a new issue, we had the same serious lack of comunication on server down time issue back in the beta. Can you not see how annoyed people are getting because of this and how a simple "it was this corse server that runs everything dying stone cold dead and we needed to rebuilt it from scratch" would make people feel better as at least we would KNOW what the problem was and have some faith that the next down time would be exsplained too.
Please Crypitc start doing this, in what is other wise, a very fine game
