Network Issues - Maintenance 12AM EST
TL;DR - the mass disconnects are not the fault of the server, but an issue with a router at the datacenter and they are rebooting it tonight at 12:00 AM EST. This mainteance should not cause an interruption, however if you receive a disconnect.. this is why... take care until after this time.
There has been a few network instability issues causing some mass disconnects or lag depending on where you connect from. The issues seem to be affecting a certain few providers along the route of the east coast USA. This is where the server is located. This has been happening rarely for a while, but recently its gotten worse. I contacted our host provider (linode) and they confirmed they are having network connectivity issues. Datacenters generally aren't supposed to, at least good ones unless there is a massive event due to High Availability and Fault Tolerance. If one route has a hiccup, take another, ect.
Linode confirmed there was an issue with their aggregation router on the east coast in their Newark datacenter affecting their ability to provide High Availability and uninterrupted network connectivity to the server. They've intiated an Emergency Maintenance to correct the issue, and status updates.
