Default Forums Slow?

Hey guys I woke up today and since it's part of the morning ritual I checked the forums only to notice they're slow as all hell. I'm talking clicking a link can take over 15 seconds to load and I'm on a 6mbit. I've tried mutiple browsers, all same, tried other websites, they load very fast. Is there some kind of server problem on yours guys' end?

Same here. I thought it was my wireless connection at home, but it's doing it to me at work as well.

Yep, same here. I had trouble with several sites yesterday at home though so it may be our area (VA) that is having problems and not the actual site.

Could the site be getting hammered by a DOS attack?

It looks like the site has a ton of traffic right now. I know there were 400+ people browsing the forums so the server may be overwhelmed right now. I'm betting if it's not a technical problem that it will get better after E3 excitement dies down.

Well, I just got home a little while ago and my internet access was completely down. I'm not sure who his provider is but I really think the Hampton Roads area is having some issues. I can now access other sites but most sites are dog slow. Of course, like you noted, it could just be the increased traffic. I'll be glad when it's back to normal. It's definitely trying my patience at the moment.

Edit: Actually, maybe you're right and it's only the increased number of browsers causing it. I can now access other sites pretty quickly but it is still sluggish here.

Might be a temporary fix only.
