Attention Commanders!

There be attempted DDoS attacks on Plarium game servers at the moment.

As a result, you may experience temporary loading issues.

Do not panic! Our engineers are working relentlessly to prevent possible issues.

Your patience and understanding are much appreciated.

Keep calm and raid on, Commanders!

General, you know damn good and well that's not going to solve the problem.  Why don't you suggest that we all power down our PC's as well?  That's the "logical" step that every help-desk jockey suggests when they don't have a clue on how to fix the problem.

Well sometimes the most logical and basic things solves big problems. That applies to war too.

Logic?  You do realize this is Plarium we're talking about, don't you?

Yowza massuh... I reads it jes fine.

In his opening post the General says they are having issues with the SERVERS and then proceeds to make it sound like the player's PC is at fault by suggesting that they "clear cache and delete cookies".  Tell me exactly where the logic is in the General's response.

So am I the only one? I did shut the computer down, cleared cache, tried another browser, another computer, ... the result is always the same:

No, JoJo, you are not the only one.  As the General stated in his first post, the problem is the Servers and has been since I came on 4 1/2 hours ago.  Don't know when it started.

I got a lot to offer to the community, but never to those who won't appreciate it. Bye, amigo.

I logged in just fine, it seems to be working now.  If you lost troops due to a glitch send screenshots to support and they'll fix it.

Commanders, on our part we do everything possible for you not to experience issues due to situation.

Still I must admit, in some cases you may need to refresh the page.

Whatever you have done has changed the coding so it won't work with older versions of Flash.  Not just  with TD but ALL of Plariums's games. It worked absolutely fine until the "hack attack".  And PLEASE don't tell me to upgrade Flash or anything else. The PC I use does not permit upgrades without an Admin doing it.  No amount of "clearing", "deleting", "different browser" or "refreshing" anything has solved the problem.  This includes BOTH Google and FireFox.

Nice way to get your useless 2 cents in.

This has been a recurring problem with Plarium.  They know they screwed up and I am probably just one of hundreds, if not thousands, that is affected by this.  Just a few months ago they did an update that screwed the pooch exactly like this and they finally figured it out.
