    Hi everyone. We have been hit pretty hard with traffic the past few days, causing the server to remain offline (obviously).

    We've been in contact with our hosting provider and they have segregated our server from the rest of their network to prevent further damage. All of the server files and worlds are safe despite the rumors.

    We will unfortunately be forced to remain offline until today or tomorrow when the network segregation has lifted. I really apologize for the down time and can guarantee you we will do our best to prevent this in the future. For the record, our current host does indeed have DDoS mitigation. We don't have exact numbers right now but we do know it was in the many hundreds of Gbps and was able to saturate their network.

    P.S: Make sure to join our Discord to talk to other users and stay updated on the current state of the server! This announcement was posted there yesterday, and copied to here.
