The culprit? Bad AC
The Stargate Worlds website and forums were down for about three hours yesterday and with no warning. Apparently the air conditioning decided to give out, and the servers just can't take the heat of 100+ degree temperatures.
Servers were disabled according to priority, the most important remaining on until the very last minute, until work upstairs was effectively halted just before 5 oclock PST. StargateWorlds.com and Stargate Worlds Forum were down for approximately three hours.
Needless to say, things are working again today! Thanks for sticking with us through the summer heat as we work to bring you our MMO!
