Unfortunately I have to say - the pain is still here - for me.

Game:
Saturday - no problems
Sunday - apparently DDOS - everyone has problems
Monday - morning okay, problems after 14:00 UK (6am Seattle)
only back to normal Monday late evening. Remember it took me 1 hour to hand over a few items between 2 characters between 18:00 and 19:00 just to get some crafting done. Managed to get 1 computer connected but had problems keeping 2 connected long enough to exchange items which would be <5 min. I was able to play after 22:00 UK for 3 to 3 1/2 hours without problems and hardly any dropped connection - or at least dropped/crash was < half an hour on average so I don't remember it badly.
Tuesday - a lot of dropped connections - up to 10 log out / log in per hour
Wednesday - problems in the afternoon - fine in the evening after my game
Thursday - trying since 1 1/2 hours unsuccessful to get a connection to place a sword into the crafting pool

Webpage:
Tuesday and today hardly any access from work (1 out of 10 attempts loaded the page < 5 min)
Can't remember loading times from home - sometimes working - sometimes no chance at all

I know my WiFi is crappy - so I even bought an Airport Express today to ensure this isn't an issue. No - it isn't just for PFO or I would be upset. Was unhappy with performance of my current box for a long time - but one more issue can be removed from my problems.

Currently I get as far as character selection - after that I'm stuck on connecting to server.

At least it seems I can connect here again. Goblinworks webpage seemed even less reachable for most of the time as the game.

Is the server throttled during Seattle work times? After 23:00 UK (3 pm Seattle) seems the only time I can play as it should be.
Thod/Theodum are the OOC/IC leaders of the Emerald Lodge - a neutral settlement in the center of the mal that tries to the first to explore the Emerald Spire - should that part of the game ever become available. We have a strong in game and out of game relationship with the Pathfinder Society.
We welcome both hard core players as well as casual players with or without tabletop experience. We have a strong group in Europe and are slowly expanding into the US. We are predominately PvE as our neutral political stance means that we tend to use PvP only in self-defence. We are not anti-PVP - but expect limited PvP opportunity with us.

Well, this site has been slow and deathly slow for me - including earlier today - but the web site is now back to a 'normal' responsiveness! Yay!
