As many of you know, we've had rolling outages due to ISP's server being in bad condition. I've taken several steps into dealing with their issues until they can get a tech out to replace their servers.

1. Automatic dynamic updating of the IP. The IP that resolves to is now automatically updated in the event that the server IP changes. It now does this WITHOUT having to wait for DNS to propagate. So no more waiting for DNS servers.

2. Automatic router restarting. The router now checks for an internet connection every 3 minutes, and if it doesn't find it, it restarts the router. When this happens, there is a chance that the IP may change. In the event that it does, the automatic ip updating kicks in.

Please note, when the router is restarted, this has ZERO impact on the game servers. All servers are up and have not restarted at all. If you lose connection, join, or just wait 2-3 minutes for the router to realize the internet is down, and restart itself. You should have no issue logging back in at that point.

Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience, this has been a massive headache on our end as well. We will update when everything is resolved permanently. Typical time between restarts is 1-3 hours, so if you plan to do an event such as dynamis, limbus, or boss fights, it may be worth while to wait for a restart before starting.
