    It is the DNS server because at home game doesn't work but when I vnc to my server (which hosted on godaddy.. same hosting for wartune server) .. everything works! .. unfortunately I cannot just use godaddy dns server as my dns at home so had to proxy to my server which in turn works.Being it dns issue... this should clear up in a matter of few days as that usually time records propogate around master dns servers (root servers).

    and again you don't know how to read?

    ALLS YOU NEED TO DO IS CLEAR YOUR BROWSER CACHE AND RESTART YOUR BROWSER. THIS WILL GET THE NEW INFORMATION AND ALLOW YOU TO LOG IN

    I put it in bold, because apparently you have no idea how to read.

    EDIT: let me put this in stupid people terms for you.

    Let say you get home to your house, the door is locked. What do you do? you put the key in and unlock the door then walk inside.

    People logged into wartune while THIER DNS was working, and logged in no problem.

    But then behind you, you lock the door. Someone else comes up and trys to get into your house without the key and they cant get in.

    Once the SERVERS DNS server went down, no one else could make a connection.

    Thus, they had to use temporary info for people to log in. BUT, your browser does not have this information. WHY? because your browser stores old information to make things load fast. Clearing your browsers cache, will force it to obtain new information. Making it possible for ANYONE to get in.

    IF YOUR DNS SERVER WAS BAD, you would NOT be able to connect to anything. Not just a game, but ANY webpage. Maybe YOU had a problem with your DNS but no one else is having this issue. If you scroll down a few threads you can clearly see people couldnt log in after refreshing and trying to re-connect.. why? BECAUSE THEY NO LONGER HAD THE KEY.

    Here pal, I'll spell it out for you. Since you went to school for this, you should know how to take notes. This is simple.

    It's not your ISP dns that has the problem, it just doesnt have the IP. So it redirects to a top level domain server, which redirects to a lesser domain server which gives the IP.

    Opendns's already knows the IP, so no need to go bouncing around from DNS to DNS looking for it.

    Here, read up cowboy then ride off into the sunset. BTW, I couldn't access the forums and neither could a lot of folks. Have fun.

    do some research yourself bro, and try reading while your at it.

    People who were logged in, where in BECAUSE they had already connected to the server before wartunes DNS went down. People who WERE NOT Logged in could no longer connect to the server without the DNS being live. If the DNS for wartune had changed alls you would need to do is clear your browsers cache and restart your browser, you dont need to TOUCH your IP.

    And just to prove that point, when you couldnt connect to wartune's servers.. but you got on the forum? so clearly YOUR dns server was working fine.

    But if you want to think that thousands of people who play this game from all around the world had bad DNS servers from their ISP's your just showing how little you know.

    im done responding to this, instead of fighting educate yourself please.

    Obviously you didn't pay attention. People were still playing because the DNS server they use still translate the name into the IP to tell them where to go.
    This wasn't just R2 having problems, but several DNS servers that have this web address's IP translation.

    Do some research bro.

    your DNS having a problem could make a server/page not load. On wartunes website, it says the SERVER is having a DNS issue, meaning that no matter what YOUR DNS is, you would NOT connect to the server. As you posted this, the servers went back online. I work in and went to school for IT. I know what im talking about.

    Actually, your DNS server resolves the name to an IP to tell it where to go. It's not just R2 that is having the issue.
