Over the past few weeks my connection to the site has been finicky across all my devices (PS4, home PC, work PC). Specifically, when I try to connect to the site, especially if I haven't connected in a while, it often just won't connect at all, and I'll get a message like "the site took too long to respond" after something like 15-20 seconds:
This site can’t be reached
www.giantbomb.com took too long to respond.
After that, a refresh often seems to work. Moreover, when I've actually got a video queued up and running, I DON'T experience any random interruptions/stuttering/disconnections. Rather, the problem seems simply to be getting a first response from the site at all.
Overall this seems to be a pretty minor issue, but is nonetheless irritating, and since it happens consistently across different devices and connections, it does not seem to be a problem on my end. I wish I could specify exactly when the problem began, but all I can say is that it's been at least a week, possibly two.
