Seems like the website and forums are back up again now

A lot more traffic than I think anyone expected honestly. Seems like their marketing strategy paid off.

Whether servers will be able to handle the traffic today or if it'll be another repeat of February 26th 2009 remains the big question

The forums are down because they are upgrading them, they announced in discord. 

Yes, and that was over an hour ago...and it would be a few minutes.

I know few isnt an exact number, so maybe 60 is a few...
Suppose we should ask them about what scale they were talking about.
An hour has 60 minutes, a day has 1440, a week has 10080, a month 40320, a year 483840, a decade 4838400, the average human (in the western world) will live to witness around 38707200 minutes.

Given the right context, 60 can be few.
But if i tell my gf ill be coming to bed in a few minutes and spend another hour at my PC, im going to have a bad time...

Im sure its all planned and intentional, what company wouldn't take their site down for hours on launch day. I mean there might have been 500 people looking at the forums at the time it crashed (yes it crashed, a real upgrade would be down and back up quickly) and it appears they were unprepared for even that modest number.

Their forums are down because they crashed and are *having* to upgrade them.

From the way the mods are talking, though, RoA is only now upgrading its gaming servers to cope?

Good to see they were so optimistic about numbers.

Web servers, not the gaming servers.

For the record they have 475 viewers that is pretty impressive.  Here is how it compares.
