Hey guys, Neo here

The reason the server is currently down is because we are currently migrating all of our data to the new box we have purchased! This could take as little as 30 minutes (unlikely) up to 6+ hours (unlikely too). We are expecting approximately a 2 hour downtime, and then we will be up and running just like before!

There are a few small things to note. For one, play.mcmedievallords.com as an IP will no longer work to connect to the server (we may bring this back, or we may just drop it permanently). Secondly, because we are moving to a new box, we are also changing IPs, sort of. In layman's terms, your play.ml-mc.com will still log you on, but it's now pointing to a new address. Additionally, because of how computers work, your computer will see play.ml-mc.com and think to automatically connect to the old IP. To fix this, you need to manually make your computer forget where play.ml-mc.com used to point to. Instructions are as follows

Windows:
1. Open Command Prompt (Can be found by searching in the Start Menu)
2. Type ipconfig /flushdns and press ENTER.
3. You will receive the message: Windows IP Configuration. Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
4. Attempt to connect to the server using play.ml-mc.com

Mac:
1. Open Terminal (Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal)
2. Type the following based on your OSX version:
- Yosemite and Later: sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
- Yosemite v10.10 through 10.10.3: sudo discoveryutil mdnsflushcache
- Mavericks, Mountain Lion, and Lion: sudo killlall -HUP mDNSResponder
- Snow Leopard: sudo dscacheutil -flushcache
3. Press Enter
4. Attempt to connect to the server using play.ml-mc.com

If you are too lazy to follow basic instructions, worry not! Your computer eventually forgets automatically anyway. At most it will take 1-2 days for your computer to smarten up and use the new IP.

That's all there is to it. The upgrade itself will likely be hardly noticeable, but we are excited with the things we can do from a developer standpoint! As always, thanks for your continued support and making this all possible.

Regards,
Neo
