So, as many of you know we had to move off our old host due to lots of issues with the server. They moved us to a new data center on May 23rd and that resulted in some downtime. Then, after that, we kept having issues where the server would lose connectivity and we couldn't get into it. They tried to troubleshoot it but we were going nowhere fast and the downtime was infuriating.
Johnny and I decided it was time to move to new infrastructure and we started that process. We wanted to make the game and it's subsystems more fault tolerant and so we chose to move various services to their own individual cloud based environments.
This took a lot of work, and some refactoring of code and processes since a lot of the things we run were expecting the other services we run to be on the same server which is no longer the case.

Thank you all so much for being as understanding as you were about the downtime. I'm proud to be part of such an excellent community.
