Chat was been mostly not working at all today during the events. Sometimes it will load but then only work for few minutes before it stops updating. If I refresh the page it is 20/80 vs loading/not loading chat at all.

The EA conference has ended; I think they're intentionally keeping it down between conferences since the next one, Ubisoft, is in a little less than an hour.

EDIT: I redact my statement; it is back up.

EDIT 2: Never mind it is totally down for me again.

still having troubles? We did some tweaks and it seemed stable thru Ubi's conference (Sony may be a different beast tho).

#19 Posted by development (2219 posts) -

Same. I've only been staring at my screen for 12 hours. I need more content.

0 watching, 0 chatting & no video

I also can't seem to get twitch.tv to load, dunno if that's in any way related.

Edit: twitch loaded, it's just super slow

Patrick tweeted a few minutes ago that they are going to miss the 10pm show start time and more details to follow.

#25 Edited by Irvandus (2875 posts) -

It says offline on Twitch. I'm going to say they aren't streaming right now.

If it is, then they have an audience of 0.

Oh well, might as well go to work early then. Hopefully I'll have something to watch when I get home.

Non-technical? That doesn't sound good. Hope there's no police involved and everyone is safe.

I'm hoping it is something of the "oh shit, we got locked out of our place" nature and not a "oh shit we need to hide this body" nature.

The GB crew has at least one person that would see a locked door as a very temporary issue.

FYI. Apparently the "reconnect to chat" link means "make chat go from semi broken to full on busted." Oh well.

#46 Posted by DrDarkStryfe (1104 posts) -

The site, like every other game related site out there, is getting hit with almost unprecedented traffic, even by E3 standards. NeoGAF has been out all day, IGN has gone down a few times, as has Kotaku, Joystiq, and Polygon.

#47 Edited by Snail (8593 posts) -

Jeff just informed the chat that their equipment got stolen, and that they're looking into their options. There may or may not be a stream tonight because of this. Keep an eye on staff twitter accounts, particularly Jeff's, for more details. This fucking blows.

#48 Posted by NekuCTR (1663 posts) -

Apparently they got robbed. Hopefully they had insurance. Either way the site will probobly be technically gimped until fucking Christmas

#49 Posted by blueinferno (447 posts) -

Fuck, that sucks. Hope they catch the losers that stole their stuff.
