I'm sure many of you have noticed things have been a little off as of late.
On January 13th, we noticed a huge influx of traffic on the site. On closer inspection, we noticed most of it was coming from Reddit. After poking around, we found the culprit, a post titled "Is it me, or is this a prime example of false advertising on Steam?
" pertaining to seemingly conflicting reviews of Ace of Spades 1.0 by IGN.
Several users had mentioned Build and Shoot on there, which would explain the traffic. This lasted for a short while until our server eventually became overwhelmed.
We took this downtime as a chance to do some much needed upgrading and future-proofing. With the site growing in popularity, we need to be better prepared for spikes such as these.
Currently there is still some DNS propagation going on so it's possible that not everybody has been forwarded properly just yet.
Thanks for the love Reddit and as usual, if anybody runs into any problems with the site, please let us know so we can address it.
